Ok Daddy i have a few ways to steep juice for ya mate.
make up your juice and mix it very well then put it under your armpit for 22 minutes then take it out and uncap it and sing it a song. recap and replace it back under your arm and repeat this for 6 to 8 hours.
or you can mix up your juice and wait for your wife to fall asleep and sneak in and place the bottle under her boobies for the night just make sure to get it back before she wakes up.
i hope this help you mate ;D

People do all kinds of things to steep their juice like hot water baths to sonic vibrations, I just mix everything in advance and throw the finished juices in a box for week or more.
Almost like wine, it gets better with time.  Up to a point that is.
See Rocc uses the sonic vibration technique.  ;)

@Rocc big LOL  :D

I take the lid off and leave the opened bottle in the bathroom cupboard for a week or two. I don't premix (yet) but have found steeping to still be really helpful when using pre-mixed juice with high VG content - really helps the flavour

Personally, i think its all a bit of a crock. BUT, thats just my personal opinion and experience

Ive mixed juices before, left them, and they taste just as bad a week later as they did when i mixed them up! Now, dont get me wrong, im not saying that Steeping doesnt work, just for me, ive never noticed a change, other than the color of the juice...

I think Rocc's directions are the best yet.......

I never bother to steep my mixes....the only thing I have noticed is my Absinthe and anise mix clears after a few hours...it looks slightly opaque when first mixed then it clears.....

I have noticed that it affects different flavours differently. I have mixed some dv mango juice about a month ago and tried it the next day, it just wasn't nice so I left it in the box. It has since then changed colour to that mango amber yellow and i have tried it last night - it is delish! Been vaping it since. I think minty flavours don't steep much but fruity seem to do it quiet well.

I'd probably go with that komg too. The only juice I still steep (after experimenting with quite a few) was a 100% VG Blueberry I had, meant to be 100% organic too. It definitely changed the flavour after a couple of weeks and was absolutely lush after about a month. So that could be it being fruity so to speak or, that it was such a high concentration of VG. No idea but it worked

On straight PG or normal 70/30ish or other typical mixes I've never noticed a difference and gave up bothering
