The other side of this site is all the recipes. You’ll spend weeks browsing them all. If you want to make use of the ELR recipe calculator there are a few things you need to know.
1- Build your Private Flavor Stash. Flavor Stash Guide
2- Once that is in place you can utilize the What Can I Make option, which is located at the top of the main recipes page.
3- Use these forums for information gathering, especially the Beginners forum.
Yes I have my flavor stash sorted but the ‘what I can make’ function was only comming up with some single flavor mixes. I thought I’d try asking to see if anyone had any other ideas if that makes sense.
Their website describes this as a “one shot” Mix it with your pg/vg, nic base @ 10% (web starting %) let it steep 3-5 days and try it!
Your two VV flavorings could be good mixed with your creams or yogurt, Have no idea as to what starting percentages though!
Yes some of the flavors are flavor mixes for replicating the makers juice. My first order included these to keep me going while I sourced all the other things I needed to start diy. I thought these may be useful still in terms of adding your own spin. They all (well nearly all) were within the flavor stash lists. Halo whisper is a SF though I believe?
I have had some good suggestions from this and other forums and have logged all the ideas as recipes here. I definitely need some top note flavours though and have just opened an account with flavourart Italy to order some. Overall I am pleased with my first purchase as I think I have some good mediumto low notes which should enable me to make (hopefully) some good ejuice when I get some top notes in.
Everyone here have put in great advice. If I may add, since you already have creams, milk, and yogurt, even if you hate vaping fruit flavor, get at least one fruit flavor. or two. or three. or eleven. I’m not judging.
When i first joined this forum, I came across this thread : A Beginner’s Guide To Making The Most Highly-Rated Recipes
I wish i read that first before I started building my stash.
This is brilliant advice. Thank you. Now a bit of background. I first started vaping in 2014 and I had to have tobacco flavours with a strong throat hit. Couldn’t stand vanilla and every fruit I tried made me feel sick. winding forward after 2 years I decided to try jazzy boba and I absolutely loved it. Then I started smoking again until last month when I decided to go DIY. After quite a bit of research I noticed that there was lots of fruit and toffee like flavors as favourites. I was still sceptical about fruit but decided to try and get the ingredients for a jazzy boba clone and at the same time try some one shot flavours such as the butterscotch custard and glazed popcorn… I loved
them!! So long story short I am going to top up my flavour list with a selection of fruits etc from flavor art Italy. I already have 1ltr of PG and VG, scales, 500ml nic @ 100mg/ml, syringes etc. I’ve read the suggested thread and it confirms what I was already thinking. I have a 38 bottle wish list on flavor art but I’ll probably get just a selection to start. Everyone has been so helpful… Many thanks again.
Flavor Art have some great fruit flavors, some are stronger than some others.
Their Bilberry is strong, most people only needed 2 - 2,5% for a single flavor Vape, while their watermelon is weaker at about 5 - 6% for most people. Whatever the result is, good luck and have fun!
Thanks again…just one more question? Is the strength difference why you often see recipes using flavors from different suppliers eg 5% bavarian cream FA, 2% sweet cream CAP, Strawberry ripe etc. etc.
Obviously, it probably makes sense to get the stronger flavors so it reduces usage…or is that not correct???
Obviously some flavors are different in their tastes although I see a lot of substitution going on amongst diy ers.
No different suppliers is because they all have good and bad flavors.If you limit yourself to one flavor maker you will miss out on a ton of great flavors.They all make some great must have flavors.They highly concentrated flavors let you use less but aren’t usually purchased for that reason.You just buy the flavors that you like or sound good.In the beginning its just best to get flavors for recipes you think you would like.
Not always. for instance, strawberry (ripe) is still considered as one of the best today, even though it was released a few years ago and it’s not as strong as, say, strawberry Red Touch from FA.
The substitution is of course abundant, since not all mixers have the same flavors. For instance, it’s very hard for me to get Inawera where I live, and I could only get some Flavorah flavors, not all.
Yep agreed. I’ve been looking for a while now and we have some good stockists for most flavour companies. The trick is trying to find one supplier who ticks all the boxes including nic etc. For example although I have lots of sources for FA stockists not one of them had jasmine which is why I ended up going direct.
