Where's the order form? Where's the cart?
That's actually two questions, but with a single answer - there isn't one because this isn't an online store. This site is more of a menu of our juices and a reasonably current indicator of what we have available on us at any given time. Juices can be purchased from us in person.
We're not in this to get rich - just to cover our own costs, improve our offerings, and to share the surplus with friends. It's kind of a digitally-assisted co-op type of thing. Sorta. But not an online store. There's plenty of those on the web already. What we need are more local places where you can get juice at the drop of a hat.^ TOP
Why are so many of your juices 'by request only?'
Our handmade juices need to steep - that is, to mature with heat and agitation - for various durations of time to achieve the best flavor. We also don't want to keep a lot of pre-made stock around because it can and will degrade in quality over time. This means there's a window - a sweet spot, if you will - between when a juice has properly steeped and when its' potency starts to fade.
Now, this sweet spot is many months long, but we hate to see good juice go over before it can be enjoyed. So, it's only made when it's specifically wanted... and there is some turnaround time for prep and steep. It's worth it, though.^ TOP
How much turnaround time will my juice need?
That depends on the juice you request. Some mix and steep quickly, a day or two at the most. Tobacco flavors notoriously need more time to develop and mellow, and should steep for up to a week. Because of this necessary lead time, requests should be made before you run out of juice. However, if we have something in stock - and we almost always do, particularly our all-day blends - then you can have it right away.^ TOP
Why don't you offer varying nicotine levels and bases?
Phoenix Fog isn't a retailer - we make our own juices for our personal vaping use, and make them in quantity to save money. What's offered here is surplus from our personal stash, and these are the nicotine levels and base mixes we like. We currently vape 24mg with a 50/50 PG/VG base, so that's what's available.^ TOP
Tell me about your ingredients.
Ok, that's not even a question. In any case, our flavorings come from a variety of sources including Capella, FlavourArt, LorAnn, FlavorWest, and TastyPuff. We use no flavorings that contain oils (to protect our atomizers) or diacetyl (to protect our lives). Some are natural, most are artificial.
Apart from flavorings and nicotine, our juices contain pure USP propylene glycol (PG), USP kosher vegetable glycerin (VG), and sometimes distilled water. Mentholated juices also contain menthol crystals dissolved in 99% pure grain alcohol (PGA).^ TOP
