Can someone give me opinions on this?

Thanks Fidalgo! Yeah 2% SS like you said seems to be around the commercial levels used that I’m used to.

Then BIG props to you! Consider that a milestone man.

Dunno about him but there’s a few of us six-string slingers here.
Then there’s those other people that hit skins w/sticks…

Thanks TorturedZen. Funnily enough that stuff would probably kill you faster than cigarettes would.

That’s great. What guitar do you play? This is my main one. It’s a Joe Bonamassa signature model:

Other things you could add…

think: creams, nuts (coconut), other contrasting fruits, even some alcohol tasting flavors :wink:

Solos rule, especially when you are soo bored with multi complex recipes…

Um mhmmm you forgot me with my 1 and 2 stringers :stuck_out_tongue:
and I like to hit shins and other body parts too… on a regular basis, apparently :rofl:

2%Super sweet is an awful lot, but it’s what commercial companies use. Personally I use about 0.25-0.5% which is more than enough for me. You may find that you will slowly begin to reduce the amount of sweetener you use, as it tends to “mask” flavours. It can cover all manner of ills,(which is why commercial companies use so much) but it also masks good flavours too. Hence, the better mixer you become, the more you will want to actually taste the recipe. Hope this is of some use.

Thanks Steve I didn’t know about sweetener covering up other flavours. Thanks for the tip!

Awesome. I did the same thing and I am happy to say that I also quit the soda’s and the sweets. It was rather difficult but it worked and I am thankful.

Welcome to the forum @JonnyL1994 and good luck with your new hobby.

Awesome Dan thanks for sharing. I think soda’s should be talked about in the same way regarding health, as cigarettes are. A soda addiction would kill you way faster than cigarettes I believe. Congrats!

Thanks Englishguy I appreciate it!

Anyone have any recommendations on mango flavourings? Or any good tropical fruit flavourings in general?

I added 2.5% of CAP Sweet Mango to the above recipe, and it’s pretty good I think.

I don’t remember who it was, maybe @SessionDrummer, who suggested jackfruit and mango. I’ve not been bold enough to try it but, there it is…:sweat_smile: I don’t much like mango, so…:joy: It may also, coulda been @Gsnap… I don’t remember…:neutral_face:
