I’m been vaping for almost 7 years. Back in the day, pre-made juice was almost non-existent and poorly made. So I made my own. After much experimentation, I got tired of the trial and error and settled on a single-flavor Capella Vanilla Custard V1. I vaped this for years on 510s and then Kanger tanks, most recently the ProTank 3. All was fine because I wasn’t much worried about taste, just vaping with conveniency.
I’ve only recently jumped into the sub-ohm world and pre-made juices. It’s nice that I can taste good pre-made juices now, but I’ve found that I can barely taste most flavors, only the very strong ones. (This is not Vaper’s Tongue or lack of water - it’s a sinus issue, and I go through the same thing with food or drink.) In the past month I’ve purchased 40+ bottles of juice, and have found only 6 that I can really taste. Out of those 6, I’d only buy 3 of them again.
So I’ve decided to get into DIY. I found a half-dozen recipes here, ordered all the flavoring, and I already have everything else I need for DIY.
I want to make strong flavors. My gut instinct is to take a recipe and adjust it to double the flavoring and then adjust the PG/VG/Nic to end up with a double-strength 70/30 mix at 3mg.
Is this OK?
Is there a better way? Note that I do not have the patience to make a recipe, wait for steeping, try it, adjust, wait, etc, etc. I am much more inclined to make 4 small bottles with differing levels of flavor. It’s OK if I throw 3 of them away. Or 4.
Also, are there any flavors that tend to be stronger than others? I have seen some charts around here listing “base percentages” for many flavors (for example http://vapingunderground.com/threads/flavorart-single-flavor-percentages.977/). I’m assuming that a flavor listed as 2% is much stronger than a flavor listed at 10%. Is that correct?
Lastly, does anyone have any suggested recipes with good, strong flavors? Sweet, sour, fruit, bakery, whatever. Right now I’ll vape anything that I can taste - though I’m not into using cinnamon, capsaicin or menthol.
Many thanks in advance!
