With my home brew, brews are often seemingly weak when tested straight from a 10ml bottle. But, when I pour off a small amount into a cup holding some tissue, I can get some intensity, presumably because the vapors have become more readily volatile and contained. BUT I don't prefer this method for a couple of reasons. I don't like holding a big cup or wearing a mask. It's harder to control dose and too easy to get a big TOXIC effect. And I never had to pour our a small amount to get intensity when Joe Miller(PWD) was still at the helm in 2008.

So....for those willing to make home brew, you can get consistent "intensity" if you rely upon huffing instead of straight from the bottle.

A small 10ml bottle will have much less head space for vapor to build, so of course you will inhale more vapor with a larger bottle; thus the 'sippy cup' method.

Many of these alternate methods of use stem from the fact that nobody is making truly nitroSATED nitrites anymore.

A saturated nitrite will effervesce raw NO when opened (for a couple of times, eventually the liquid will no longer be saturated and the nitrite will 'go flat' again.

Much like carbonated beverages.

If your homebrew doesn't effervesce, then you might need to use a larger bottle for a better experience, because your himebrew is as weak as retail.

It's much better to use a different bottle for use than for storage because if you have a powerful product, opening it and sniffing from it will be destroying it (hydrolysis, photolysis, thermolysis) and killing the nitrosation.

@The Professor : Thank you very much for your comments. I advise users never to inhale directly from the popper bottle, regardless of its size.
I now cut an 8 inch length from a roll of 4 inch wide cotton gauze to make a wick. I fold over this length three times and place it into a clean glass bottle about 5 inches high. I use a medicine (baby) dropper to transfer the liquid from the popper bottle to the wick. I then place a tight cap on the glass bottle and let it sit for 20 minutes prior to use to allow the vapor to develop in the head space.
Users can experiment by using different sizes of glass bottles, as well as the amount of popper liquid that is transferred into the glass bottle on to the cotton wick.
You stated "A saturated nitrite will effervesce raw NO when opened." Is this why the popper formulas sold in the 70's and 80's would emit a "hiss" sound when a new bottle was first opened? Virtually none of the popper products I have purchased over the past several years have emitted a "hiss" sound when the bottle was first opened. This observation immediately informs me that the formula is not a top quality popper and will not provide the combination of very pleasurable effects that were provided by the better poppers sold in the 70's and 80's.

@Harry.....I only engaged in the bathhouse culture during its waning days, 2008 onward and hardly ever now.

Poppers were and are common in bathhouses. Virtually everyone, including myself, sniffed straight from the bottle. There's a practical reason. It's easier to both conceal and carry a small bottle ONLY in a public setting. I personally, didn't want to make a big production out of sniffing poppers. In fact, I would prefer nobody see me use them. So...once again, it's easier to conceal a small 10ml bottle.

Not ever once during 2008-10, did I ever experience toxic side effects from OTC poppers. But the poppers did go dead within 24 hours....literally hours after hearing the opening hiss. They gave a nice dreamy, surreal relaxed effect while relaxing the hole. They didn't have any pronounced recognizable odor like bananas, nail polish, or cement glue. Odor was mild and effects were never toxic. They scream NAN to me.

@Nitritespecialist: Thanks for taking the time to respond and comment.

Yes, the hissing used to be a sign of freshness; a nitrosated product will only effervesce a couple of times after being opened, and you'll get that
expanding lung' feeling when you inhale. After that is gone, the nitrite has 'gone flat' and it's similar 6to the difference between flat and carbonated soda.

These things were never intended to be stored for very long.

There was the 'pocket' bottle (10ml) that was for a night out, and there was the 'nightstand' bottle (30ml) for partying back home.

People seem to want them to last for more than a couple of openings now, maybe even weeks, but that's not going to happen if you dose and store from the same bottle.

Nothing more sad than being stuck with poppers that don't pop.....

@The Professor: Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to my question ! I appreciate your educational comments. As I previously mentioned, I have purchased a variety of popper products over the past several years and not one of the bottles emitted a "hiss" when I opened it. This has become a very frustrating situation, not to mention a complete waste of money.
I think that most of the popper product formulas have now been diluted over the past two years.
I consider real Amyl Nitrite to be a legitimate pro-sexual drug for adult use and I really miss it, because it added so much pleasure to my sex life. As the Specialist mentioned above (30 April), the best popper formulas - especially real amyl - do not have a toxic odor, they are smooth, create a dreamy relaxed euphoric state, relax the anal muscle, and also create a mild pumping sensation in the prostate gland. Also, I do not recall ever experiencing serious side effects when I used the best poppers back in the 70's and 80's.
I recall that real Amyl Nitrite has a very distinct odor, but the iso-amyl products (formulas) I have purchased from France do not have this odor. In fact the odor is some-what toxic and there is very little or no euphoric effect provided. So, again, it has become a very frustrating situation.
It is interesting that people can buy cigarettes, cigars, and now marijuana in many states - and get high on THC - but we cannot buy amyl nitrite over the counter to use as a relaxant - because it is considered to be a drug.

I've developed a very simple, handy device for this.

Take a 15-40ml PE sample tube (e.g. medical specimin or centrifuge type) with a tapered rather than flat base. Using an awl or skewer, punch a few evenly spaced holes in the plastic stopper and a larger (ideally 1mm) hole in the bottom of the tube. You could also cut the bottom off the tube and sand it smooth.

Place 1/2 to one cotton ball in the top of the tube so that it fills the diameter and won't slide up and down. Drop your popper of choice onto the cotton ball then screw the cap on. Inhale from the hole at the bottom of the tube. Done!

Easy to share or make a second one for your partner.
