Steeping is one of the first things you’re learn about when you dive into mixing. A tactic where you use time, heat, and oxygen, to create a more vibrant & cohesive recipe. The act of steeping involves….doing nothing! Just leave your mix alone for a set amount of time until you “feel” it is ready. Steep times, depending on the flavor profiles and recipes, can vary from an hour, to a few days, to a few weeks, to a few months, (and I’m sure some people steep for even a few years, unironically). However, if you’re like me, you don’t steep. You don’t want to have to wait to enjoy the fruits of your labor. You want to mix something up, and vape it in its most optimal state, without any wait times. But is this feasible? Is this possible in a medium where you’re at odds with time?

Steeping is not a magical fix all, or even really a band-aid. It’s a tool used to get the most optimal flavor from a mix. It highlights the best and worst things about your recipe. So make sure you’re always starting with a good recipe before you determine if you should steep it or not. Experience always wins in mixing. So remember to keep mixing, keep studying, and keep tuned into DIYorDIE to learn to create the most optimal, best tasting vapes you can.
