Looking for the best vendor and/or brand for base for the least amount of unwanted base flavor. Any recommendations? Been using those from ecigexpress and have a definite sweetness to them that I can’t help but feel is interfering with final recipe.
Palm is sweeter (and better imo) than soy. All VG is naturally sweet, so it’s going to be hard to find one that isn’t.
I prefer Nic River VG, before that I used Essential Depot which has quality palm. I know ED started selling soy derived this last year, and it’s significantly less expensive than palm, but the quality is not as good.
As most Europeans, I use rapeseed based VG and I can’t say it’s very sweet. I sometimes vape it straight to clean out remnants of juice in my cotton and find it has a very neutral taste. Yes, a very slight hint of sweetness but nothing that IMO messes with a recipe.
The natural sweetness from some flavors are having a much bigger effect as a lot of them already come with (ethyl)maltol in it.
There are some flavor enhancers, like e.g. FA Bitter Wizard, that you could use to counter some of a recipe’s sweetness.
i live in greece so i am not familiar with products in US, i prefer using pharmaceutical USP/EP PG/VG provided by Chemco, using them yeras never had a problem with them… though flavor etc is a personal matter and each one of us tastes feel things different…
if you’re living in EU i would prefer Pink Mule PG and VG… though if i could give a tip or something is just trying to vape your VG and PG alone and decide yourself… there are many good quality VG/PG products out there, the thing is what works for you better
Found that liquidnicotinewarehouse (LNW) has PG/VG and it’s completely different in the taste. Kosher, Food Grade. Got 2 liters (1 accidentally) so I’m set. Probably the same caliber at what Cooter1 mentioned, Essential Depot from Amazon.
So my new base combo is LNW Nicotine Salts and their PG/VG base. Bam.
awhile back they gave out free samples and i dod a side by side comparison of NR and LNW and if they werent the same they were very close if i remember right the LNW seemed to be a teeny bit thinner ( maybe ) . Im not sure what they are selling their VG for but at the time it was ALOT more than NR
