DIY: Home Brewing vs. Vape Juice

If you have made the switch from smoking to vaping, you’ve probably heard about making your own e-juice. For those who vape, it comes as no surprise that vaping is just about as costly as smoking real cigarettes once you purchase a vaping device and vape juice to go in it. Thankfully, though, you can make your e-juice to save money. Making your own juice also comes with the ability to create truly unique flavors that you won’t find elsewhere on the market.

In addition to making your own e-juice, did you know you can make your own beer right from the comfort of your own home as well? That’s right! Home brewing beer and home steeping vape juice actually have a quite a bit in common. Let’s take a look at the similarities and differences and why you should start home brewing your own beer and home steeping your own e-juice.

History of Brewing Beer

People have been brewing beer for thousands of years. In fact, did you know the practice of brewing beer dates back to at least 5000 B.C.? While many people have always made their own brews at home, home brewing did not become legal across the nation until 2013. Since then, more and more people have jumped on the home brewing bandwagon. As of 2017, more than 1 million Americans were making their own brews.

History of Vaping

Even though the first successful e-cigarette was not released until 2003, vaping is a trend with roots dating all the way back to ancient Egypt and India. That means it’s essentially been around for thousands of years, too. As of 2018, more than 20 million Americans were vaping.
