For about 6 month I have been mixing some flavors for me and some friends and family members. I have been reading a lot over the pass 6 month and some of my mixes have come out good, but many have come out flat.
So what am I using? Essential depot VP and PG, mixing ration 60/40. TFA for flavors. For nicotine I use strength 100mg 100% PG from my freedom smoke and all recipes we mix them in 0, 3 and 6 mg.
The nicotine so far has not been a problem, the problem is actually not getting many of the flavors right, they taste weak, you can taste something there but it is not strong enough, I make 3 version when I try a flavor for the first time, 10% flavor, 15% flavor and 10% flavor plus 1% EM (cotton candy) all in 60 VG/ 40 PG ratio. I leave them all 1 month for the stepping, shaking them form time to time during the month.
Flavors like, Grape, Apricot, Fruit circles, Philippine mango, regular mango and vanilla came out with a really weak flavor. I have many other flavors that I made that I still need to try, but so far only lemon lime and Hawaiian are actually good.
how do I make them? I do 10ml mixes, I got 1ml and 5ml Syringes for all ingredients so I wont contaminate one with the other and so that I could get the mixes as precises as possible, so I get a 15ml glass bottle, and mix the following way:
For 10% flavor:
6ml VG, 3ml PG and 1ml flavor
For 15% flavor:
6ml VG, 2.5ml PG and 1.5ml flavor
For 10% flavor plus 1% EM:
6ml VG, 2.4ml PG, 1ml flavor and 0.1ml EM
This is what I do when I don’t put any nicotine in the mix.
So as I said before, after stepping for a month or longer and shaking from time to time, I get really weak flavors.
When I open the bottles, they smell great, awesome actually and I think, “this is it”, but then I vape them and get disappointed.
Could anyone help me out please?
