Help a noob with a recipe basic

Ok first time mixing. I got 4 oz caramel cappuccino from TFA and I want to make a 15 ml batch. Im confused because on some peoples notes I see 1 drop per 10 ml and other sites I read 20%. How strong are these flavorings? throw out any first time tips for noob all your responses are much appreciated. Thanks guys :smiley:

@Alisa or @JoJo may be able to point you in the right direction. :smile:

This is information you can see when you search the flavor, look at the recipe, then click on the flavor. This is very helpful stuff. Notice this flavor used as a single (standalone) flavor is used at a maximum of 2%. This is a very strong flavor. One drop per 10mls sounds more like what you want. 20% of this flavor would likely curl the hair on your toes…

On the ELR flavour list the average is 1 to 2%. This is considered a pretty strong flavour. I would start at 1% and taste after about a week, you can always add more if you find it too weak.

Ringling and Josephine beat me to it. :slight_smile: I would’ve referred you to the flavoring page directly, as Ringling did, as I do not have or have ever used that particular flavor.

I might add this… whenever I receive a new flavoring, before I try to mix with it, I ALWAYS look it up here on ELR and read what other people have done with it, how they liked/disliked it, how much they used, etc.

When I look up caramel cappuccino (TPA), one of the people that has used it is Amy ad it seems she dilutes it before using it in her recipes.

From Amy: “caramel cappuccino diluted is 3 drops in 10 mls of pg then I used 2% of that mix in the recipe.”

Notice on the “Percentages in recipes” column tho, some joker made a recipe with 20% - so watch out for goofy numbers. You can scroll down further to look at individual comments. Sometimes that’ll give you a better idea of what to expect.

Also 1 drop per 20 mls = roughly 0.25%. That bottle is gonna last a while!

Noticed that! Bet they now sport one of those rooster hairdos vaping it at 20% flavoring…

Don’t have caramel cappuccino but I have heard it’ll take the paint off your toes even if you aren’t wearing any…it’ll take the paint of yo momma’s toes! LoL. I’d definitely start small and work up from there.
