Steeping your E-Juice
April 14th, 2018

Steeping is something that gets looked over quite often in the vape industry. Steeping essentially rounds out the flavours of your e-juice to alter the taste, mostly for the better. Think of it similar to a fine wine or bourbon that's aged. Steeping gives a chance for all of the ingredients in your e-juice to completely blend, thus making some flavours mellow out and others pop. There are many different methods to steeping e-juice, but I'm going to show you 2 of the easiest and most effective ways.

The first method would be storing your bottle of e-juice in a cool, dark place and just waiting. Letting your bottle sit without light hitting it will give it a chance to blend. Shaking your bottle every once in a while would help speed up the process as well. Concerning waiting time, this varies from flavour to flavour. I find that fruit flavours don’t need much steeping time as fruit flavours are more crisp on your palette. I do, however, like to steep my tobacco and dessert flavours as it helps mellow out the high notes and creates a very rich flavour. Now, the actual time is subjective. Some people like to have their bottles steeped for a week, some even months.

The whole reason for steeping is to get the best flavour to you out of the bottle, so if it tastes fine to you, you should be good to go. Most of the time, people find that the flavour right out of the bottle is perfect, and they don’t even need to steep it.

Now, Steeping is also going to alter the colour of your e-liquid. The longer you let a juice steep, the darker it will get.

The next method of steeping e-juice is much quicker, but it does require some equipment. And that would be an ultrasonic cleaner. Ultrasonic cleaners might be something you already have to clean your atomizers or jewellery, but if you don’t have one, they’re readily available online and don’t cost too much. But, mostly, you'd fill your ultrasonic cleaner with lukewarm water, put your bottles in, and turn it on. Ultrasonic waves are now sending vibrations through your bottle of juice to help the molecules mix with each other very quickly. This is a rapid and easy way to speed up the steeping process.

Now, there are a plethora of different ways and methods other people use to steep e-juice, but I found these are the most effective and most accessible. Also, a lot of these other methods involve heat being introduced to your bottle. This isn't a good idea with these new plastic bottles as it can alter the taste of your flavour negatively.

Again, some flavours may not even need to be steeped and many companies are selling pre-steeped bottles that don’t even need steeping. At the end of the day, if there’s a flavour that you are vaping and you’re not feeling it, try steeping it, and it may change your mind.
