Yup…looks like this list needs updating as well. Such is the way with the list-maker—always a list of things to add to the list or to make a list of. :wink:

I should look at the Beginner’s Thread as well in case there’s anything new it could benefit from having. Will get on this after my Genetics final tomorrow. Wish me luck. :grimacing:

Hello all, I’m new to this whole scene not just DIY but Vaping in general. I quit smoking in August and just bought my first MOD. I have a iStick 100w with a Uwell Crown. I’m looking forward to making my own juice and this forum is very inspiring. I would appreciate any flavor recommendations or starter kits. I like pretty much everything since I haven’t really honed in on my favorites yet. I know little to nothing and am looking forward to gain some practical knowledge to go out and make some great juices. Thanks to everybody and Happy Holidays

Smart choice… asking before you dive in. So many do the opposite…

@Pro_Vapes beat me to it! :wink: The best advice I’ve heard around here that I can give is, after you take a look at the stuff in those links, find a couple of recipes that you want to try (preferably ones that aren’t super complicated), and order those flavors.

Welcome to the obsession! :smiley:

Inspiring indeed! I had been mixing stuff for a good while before I found the fine folks here, but the things I’ve learned about mixing I doubt I would have ever picked up on my own. Don’t hesitate to tap into the vast knowledge base here.

Have you visited the ELR Calculator yet?

@CrispyCreme, here’s a little link for some practical knowledge in flavor pairing for when you do collect flavors and start mixing. Don’t let mixing intimidate you! It’s fairly easy and a lot of fun. Research is often the key to successful mixing; read, read, read! :wink:

Thank you guys for all the help. I don’t know the forum rules but I would appreciate it if someone could recommend a good website to order from I’m located in the USA. I’ve decided to get a starter kit with about ten flavors and then just pick up flavors and base as needed.

You could try ecigExpress - They got a LOT of stuff :slightly_smiling: Discount code ELRECIPES will give you … around 10% discount … on most items :stuck_out_tongue: ECX needs to fix it so it’s on everything! ;D

Wow. I must need sleep and to learn how to read. I just realized I linked the thread that we are in. I swear my hair color is natural…I’m NOT a blonde.

I"m not sure you realize how much you’ve helped the community here at ELR this year, and how profoundly helpful your recommendation of the Flavor Bible has been! God bless you for sharing this gem, and I hope your generosity is revisited to you 1000% in 2016. Thanks DV!

I always wondered what Passionfruit went with! Thanks
I have a JF Passionfruit which I find peppery, does anyone else have the same problem.

What a great thread!
Many thanks to everyone who contributed to it and especially @JoJo for the tireless and thankless task of compiling it all!
Where do you find the time? LOL

So can anyone help with Jackfruit?

It’s tough to find pairings with Jackfruit.

From Reddit…

Jackfruit, as described by botboy, is flexable. Add it to Pineapple for a tart tropical fruit. Add to Orange Cream to get a Mellow Mango-esque flavor. Add to Juicy Peach for a sweet tropical flavor, or nectarine for similar but slightly less sweet results.

Thanks!
Yes I am struggling a bit with it?
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great flavour but getting that pairing for the wow factor is eluding me for now?
