You are at the harbor and have missed the boat, this should in no way be a replacement of how we make our recipes. Just a way to give the aromas a representation visually. And probably does not cater to the experienced mixers in any way.
Useless or not, not everyone come at DIY’ing understands why aroma 1 is set at x % and why aroma 2 is set at z % in y recipe. This is meerly a suggestion towards visual aide for “newbs”, no more or less
And I do agree, the flavour strength play a huge role in disfavouring something like this.
This is meerly a suggestion towards something that could cater for new mixers to ease into the “mindset” of other mixers. And thus learn the buildup of a recipe faster. But there is still no way around learning the aromas the old fashioned way.
I made a very small sketchup of what something like this could look like:
This wheel is way to big. And dont even need to be a wheel, it could be another bar under the nic/pg/vg bar too. People think diffrently towards certain tasks, and mixing a juice for some are a task better understood by simple visual aides, over lists. However, most will have to abide by the numbers no matter what, cause some aromas are super strong and would be misrepresented in something like this, no matter what. But then again, if you do own alpine strawberry and still use it at 2%+ you are also still missing the boat
