# Percentages

How do I calculate percentages when I’m making a recipe

I’m not 100% sure what you’re asking, but I just plug numbers into a juice calculator like the one at http://e-liquid-recipes.com/create

No sense in doing a bunch of math when we have such wonderful tools available.

If you meant something different let me know.

You can search for your flavour on ELR calculator page and it will bring up average single flavour usage percentage, average mixing in recipes percentage, users ratings and how many recipes with that flavour.

If you’re looking to combine flavours then search for your flavours first.

Note down their mixing percentages when used in recipes and start with that.

For example search for
Bavarian cream (TFA)
Find the mixed percentage of x% and note it down.

Search for
Vanilla Custard v1 (CAP)
Find the mixed percentage and note it down.

Search for
Ripe Banana (TFA)
Find the mixed percentage and note it down.

Make a mix with all 3 flavours at their mixed percentage and adjust your recipe after tasting.

Percentage = ( mL of flavor / total flavor ml ) * 100

Eg: 0.3 ml flavor in 10 ml is (0.3/10)*100 = 3%

We’re used to working only with percentages - ELR does the calculations to get it to ml and grams (and drops)

Daath,

As a future enhancement to the site, would if be possible to sort a flavor by percentage used? My thought is, on the flavor page, you/we would have a column for percentage so it could be sorted high to low or vice a versa. I don’t know if this has been suggested before so forgive me if I missed it.

Just a thought.
