Can someone tell me what this is and do I need to purchase?

It’s a sweetener that really gunks up your coils. I have some but don’t use it, I use marshmallow at a low percentage to get some sweetness in mixes. I’m sure someone will give you more detail on it soon.

I have purchased lots of crappy juices, so that’s why I’m thinking DIY, I’m sure I can make crappy tasting juices for a lot less, lol

Just how far has everyone pushed Ethyl Maltol before it starts to mute? Using Cotton Candy TFA as a sweetener, and I want to push it as hard as I can to act as a sweetener but not mute.

I would like to use it to mute something that’s too strong. Have you gotten your answer yet?

Cotton candy/ethyl maltol can mute flavours for a sort period of time, 2 or 3 weeks and sometimes more than 1month. After that period the muted flavours comes back. More ethyl maltol= more days (more or less). But if you mix it to soft plastic bottle it can mute other flavours for ‘‘ever’’, because it react with the soft plastic and somehow melt it. (Sorry for my English).
