Sweeter and smoother could easily be the effects of VG. Give a 50/50 batch a try.

I might try a 10mil just out of curiosity but I like my version better now. Is that conceited or a common side effect of trying to DIY clone stuff?

Personally, it’s a common side effect.

I’ve recently learned that the one I’ve been trying to clone for the last few months actually turned out better than the retail offering. (Either that, or they’ve monkeyed with their recipe since I last bought it. lol)

Either way, I’m happy with the results as well as the experience gained as my journey has progressed! =)

I think it’s common for DIY. Since people who DIY have the ability to tweak the flavors to their own tastes, they frequently do so. I rarely make the a recipe exactly the same twice, since I will often reduce one flavor a tiny amount and/or increase another, adjusting something based on my tasting notes. And then, once I’ve perfected it, I find that differences in aging time can make a difference, too. And changing the PG/VG ratio. Or changing to a different tank. With DIY, many adjustments can be made, so they often are made.

From a newbie myself. That is a question I had too. I hope to learn how much of a difference it makes on the ratio of PG vs VG. Thank you.

I just signed up to this site but have been using for about 3 months. I thought it was just a calculator but I then find out you have thousands of recipes :scream: I cannot wait to get mixing now.

I do have one question though. Is there a way to search recipes with what flavours I have at home?

There sure is. Take a look at The Guide

Read up until 2.2, so you understand the Flavor Stash, and 2.2 will explain how to search using your Flavor Stash and the “What Can I Make” feature.

Oh, and don’t forget, you need to save up for your flavors… You can’t be cheap about it like me. I even have a wholesale account at Capela’s and they still rape me on the shipping. It’s 13 bucks for them to ship you a 13ml bottle of flavor… that’s jacked up, especially when you buy 4 4oz bottles and a half dozen 13ml bottles and the shipping is STILL 13 bucks. Robbery.
