    Angry Why don't Juice venders state how long their juice needs to steep... rant

    I bought some juice, and when I vaped it, the flavor tasted bad...
    like liver or something... It was suppose to be RY4. At the time I didn't know about steeping... was my first week into vaping.
    now its been sitting for a month it tastes a lot better... but still not great....

    I just got some juice from 'Stucco jedi' and I specifically asked him when the juice would be good for vaping... and when the juice would be great for vaping.
    some needed steeping for a week, to be vapable, then 2 weeks afterwards to be good. I figured let it steep for another week or 2 to be great...
    other was steep minimum of 1 month. I have all my bottles labeled as to how long they should steep for...

    what I still don't know is why venders don't specify that on their site. they usually mix them, they should know how long it needs to steep to be good... and how long it needs to steep to be great.
    you would figure venders would want their customers to enjoy the juice when its at it's best. and for a newbie like myself.... I don't know.
    especially since each flavor ordered can potentially be different.

    I don't think it would be that hard for venders to do this.

    That's what the born on date is for. Rule of thumb two weeks for good four for great. 6 months for fine wine status.

    These are just my "general minimum steep" times: I usually go with 1 week for fruits/candy/clear though they can usually be vaped right away, 2-3 for chocolate/coffee/dessert, and 4+ for tobaccos.

    Good point! But it is not as simple as saying Jack Robinson. There are a lot of variables in play here.

    Taste is extremely subjective. What might be good for you may not be for someone else.

    Another factor is the state of your taste buds, do you have a new set or are you still using your old burnt ones? What may please you today may surprise you 6m from now.

    Some like is fresh, the fresher the better. IIMO that those folks usually brew there own and have yet to tailor their recipe for a "steeped" liquid, which normally entails a reduction in flavouring.

    Rule of thumb - although they are good in 2 weeks 4-6 weeks is the norm for most liquids.

    I ordered 6 x 30ml of Dr. Funkworth's Olde-Timey Pearisian Elixer
    after a month i'll starte vaping a bottle per month and see how the flavor changes/improves...
    by the last bottle it should be 7 months steeped

    Conclusion:
    For everyone "Taste" differ to each other as one month steep period taste result may differ for any of two vapes.
    Mod (E Cig) play a viatal role to produce taste.

    Question still exist that vendors should needed to do something or nothing
