I never been much of a recipe maker myself, I usually just mix other peoples recipes, maybe do some changes to fit me a bit more. The furthest I’ve gotten are some single flavor recipes. But I’m planning on changing that now. Its just looking at recipes and trying to learn from them are so wild, the percentages just bounce around all crazy. But I figured I try attack this problem with some reason, maybe it doesn’t have to be touchy artsy stuff so to say. But I need some help understanding this.
Lets say I have 3 flavors I want to mix A, B and C. All of these vapes good at 12% single flavor. So to make a mix of all 3, I thought I would mix them all equally at 4%, for a total of 12%. But then you look at similar recipes, and they are all mixed at 8%, making it a total of 24% flavor, which is almost double the original single flavor percentage.
Is there something I’m missing? Is mixing basically about just stuffing so much flavor down a bottle you possible can until it starts to taste like chemicals? If A and B single flavor works great at 12%, you could basically double the flavor by throwing 12% of both down the bottle?
What is the reasoning behind mixing? I feel like there should be some kind of through line to follow when mixing, but cant find any information about that. All I find when I search is people mixing already figured out recipes, not how they got to that point, or the thought process was getting there.
