Well you got them down on paper so that is the right direction - i cant really comment on some of the % 's because i do not have all the flavours.

However there are is one that stands out to me on first look i assume your fa strawberry is red touch I wouldn’t really go over 3% with that but each to their own.

I would not add any sweetener until you have tasted the juice then add it if it is required.

Good luck


I agree with woftam. I believe you have a good start since you have basic recipes, but can’t give any advice since I have not worked with the flavors. To add on the sweetener issue, I recommend starting at around .25% and then working up to 1%. Some flavors just don’t need it. Good luck and keep us updated.


@woftam said it all , i like to write down ideas when they pop in my head ( not the recipe) but the flavors im thinking about to create what popped in my head


I’m a bit boring :slight_smile: but have you tried single flavor testing already? try your flavors in a single mix and see what % you like it at and how they steep over time. This is priceless information when you start mixing your liquids.

FA flavors usually shine in the 1.5% to 3% range. Going over that will likely mute flavors.


I’ve finally got round the first obstacle’s… maths, using less concentrate, separate vg and pg rather than a premix and tried a few flavours. I’ve now made 3 batches of 60vg/40pg this morning with 3 and 6% nicotine levels which will steep for a while. Finally got a breakthrough with tasting the flavours in some samples and everything not muted.ill post the results. It feels good to be a scientist :joy:
