I would suggest small batches and without nicotine ... this way you dont waste the expensive ingredient.
once you arrive upon a flavour you do like, then re-adjust the mix including your nicotine base ...  ;)

my kit arrived this morning, so I got 5ml mixed up using the ECR juice calculator.  It seems a bit watery and thin, so next batch I will only use VG as the 25ml nicotine juice is mainly PG.  I may consider going up to a higher concentrate so that I can get my mixes to around 50/50 VG/PG mix which is what I like to vape.  This mornings mix vapes ok though.  I was surprised that it is colourless, I ordered RY4 concentrate and I am used to the light brown colour from my normal Dekang mix.  Not keen on clear mixes, wonder if it is possible to colour it up a bit, I know that it is purely cosmetic.   ;)  Overall though I am pleased and look forward to more experimentation with DIY mixing.  ;)

it might darken naturaly over time as per oxidation ... e-liquids often discolour if exposed to sunlight too.
good idea particularly if concerned with costs, to buy a double strength nic base to then half by using a dilutent ... and also arrive at a 50/50 vg/pg mix or other desired ratio.
