I'd like to start my journey in the DIY e-liquids world :D

I think you are correct. I do feel @overspin89 needs to find something similar to nicotine river, wizard labs or bull city vapor where many company’s flavors can be purchased. He should not limit the recipes to only one company’s flavors as a beginner. My opinion of course…

Looks like Pink-Mule can be a good place to start out for you. Danish company, but they ship from Spain.

Here I am!

@overspin89

https://www.chefsflavours.co.uk/ Do a very wide range of concentrates and ship to Europe.

https://www.darkstarvapour.co.uk/ Now ship to Europe but the nicotine is now in the TPD size of 10ml/18mg/ml strength.

http://www.lubrisolve.com/ Do great vg and pg and also some concentrates of their own (not tried them personally).

Shipping charges I am unsure of as I am based in the UK, so local postage applies.

I know @Norseman orders from Chefs Flavours so he may be able to assist.

And @DrChud is definitely our resident TPD Guru so any questions you have in relation to the new regulations, I am sure he will be happy to assist.

And finally…welcome to the best place on the net! Good to have you here :grin:

Yeah i order from chefs among others for flavors and i have had absolutely no issues with them. They might be real slow to answer any emails if they even reply but besides that i always get what i ordered and in a decent time frame.
Shipping costs for me is £3.75 and thats not tracked. Tracked shipping would cost you more.

I also use http://www.flavourart.co.uk/ for pure FA orders and i can get anything in 10, 50 and 100ml bottles.

Never used Darkstar so i can’t say anything about them and they kinda got to be of non interest to me now since i can’t order nic in proper sized bottles and high MG due to the TPD bullshit.

Before you buy your concentrates find a recipe you want to make. Do you like fruits? Drinks? Desserts? Custards? When I first started I picked a highly rated recipe from here and made it. I found jumping straight into creating my own juices was not the best approach.

I didnt do single flavor recipes. I wasted lots of juice because I was basically guessing at percentages for each flavor. I took the long route to perfecting recipes. I have to agree that starting with single flavor mixing is more organized and helpful for starting out.

Hello overspin89!

  1. Do what @SthrnMixer says.

  2. Get to know how to use this database and read the notes on the flavors for your percentages.

  3. Before you spend any money, buy the flavors you need to make 2 or 3 recipes that are highly rated by many people in your flavor profile. If you go off trying to make your own recipes before you understand basic things you’ll just get mad for spending the money, throw your mod across the room … well you get the picture.

  4. There are no stupid questions. 99.9% of the people on this site will help you and not make fun of you.

Hi everyone I’m here again :sweat_smile:
I did some research and I found out that flavour art gives out nice flavours with quite cheap expedition (5€), so I started to search for some nice recipe and I ended up making my own one (with some inspiration of course). I loved this one e-juice I used to vape 70/30 Fresh Mango and also I love tropical fruits so I got this idea:
75% VG
15% PG
5% Mango [FA]
3% Pineapple [FA]
2% Polar Blast [FA]
I like 0mg nic for best flavour and low throat hit
What do you think about this? Should I adjust some percentages? Thanks again
Also: should I use higher flavour percentages with a higher VG ratio to keep the flavour all right?

I haven’t used any of those flavors, but I would think your percent of Mango could be lowered to the half. If it turns out a little harsh, add a sweeter flavor or a sweetener. I’m sure some of the experts will chime in with a better answer.

Personally I don’t find I need to add more flavor if I change the ratios, but I know many others do. As long as you’re at 30/70 I don’t really think you’ll see at whole lot of difference; if you’re going max vg you might want to try it though, because pg is a better flvor carrier than vg. I have also vaped a lot of 0 mg nic mixes and have never changed anything in the recipes, if anything it gives you a more ‘clear’ taste imo.

And don’t listen to Tiny up there @AZViking :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I knew this would come in handy
