I agree with SmokyBlue here, even tho I don’t have many flavors from flv yet, they are much more potent than FA.
Reason I’m quoting you tho, and that’s just my experience, but FA has potent flavors I agree with. Sadly as I began mixing I jumped right away for the FA line, thinking due to reviews that these should all be used under 1% up to maybe 2 (highest mark on some less potent) found myself later mixing them at much higher potency.
Now we could say that my taste buds are horrible, which they are not but let’s use that excuse, I don’t just mix for myself and after getting the input we all agreed, 1% or less yeah not so much if you looking for good potent and layered recipes that are not just based on one or three flavors.
Still agreeing tho, FA needs less than maybe other popular manufacturers but its not 0.1-1% anymore. I’ll however say, maybe as many other manufacturers they have changed the ingredients or extraction way and they have been stronger in older batches as most reviews were created, who knows. We saw a complete change of FA’ s meringue in comparison to the old batches, that let’s me believe other flavors undergone changes too, or at least the potency.
