Okay guys, let’s get some good communication going here.
So let’s make some comparisons to the following criteria (up for discussion, will welcome any viewpoints):
Test Batch Size:
(i.e. - 15ml)
(i.e. - 20PG
What flavor did you use?
Other Flavorings Used: (Include standard information on this one as well, percent/weight, manufacturer)
Amount of flavoring in the batch: I’m thinking either weight or percentage on this one, it’s up to you, but let’s make it uniform for everyone, please.
Initial Taste Notes:
1 Week Steep (if even needed, this is new territory here - bear with me)
2 Week Steep
Guys, I can’t stress how subjective this can be - but try to be as objective as possible, be frank, open and honest.
I now open the floor for discussion and banter, please keep it civil and let’s see if we can help out RealFlavors here!
I have a hybrid steeping using RF’s and 1/2 VG 1/2 VB nic just the 3 mg that’s in the VB. It’s been steeping around 5 days now. I’m afraid I may react to the POD since it bothered me the first time I tried it, but yesterday I tried it again after some steeping and it didn’t that was a tiny introduction thou only 2 drops POD were put in a steeped batch.
I didn’t order any of the PDO flavorings to try, so I’m still waiting to here from others. But it’s only been out a short time, has anyone even received their orders yet? I don’t know…this week flew by for me, last week of daughter high school, getting everything for Prom last night. Getting everything for Grad ceremony on the 16th and making sure the whole family has something better than jeans to wear… I’ve been running like a chicken. So proud, but damn this is exhausting…lol
Thank god I only have one more left, and I have 2 more years for his!
Thank you, and congrats on that! Mine is insistent on taking a year off before starting college. And she has been very very resistant to my pleas and to the statistical improbability I keep shoving in her face about the unlikely hood of actually returning to school after a break.
I haven’t picked up any of your PDO flavorings as of yet. I did check and they are all sold out at the moment.I have started some testing using Real Flavors with the Liquid Labs Vapor Base.I am going to be posting my results from my initial test on that thread shortly.
My bottle of Bread Pudding is about half gone , are you planning on adding it to your PDO offerings anytime soon ?
Absolutely , I have gained so much from the forum and members such as yourself and countless others that is the least I can do.I must apologize though for my grammar and punctuation skills but I will always try and post my findings.
I am hoping for the bread pudding to be added to the PDO line as well.
Hoping to hear what people think about the PDO offerings compared to the VG counterparts. The PDO is pricey and the ELR discount code doesn’t work on them so i will just have to be patient and hear how they compare.
@daath or @JoJo or anyone else. Do you have any suggestions on the best way to use the ELR calculator to add PDO as a part of the base instead of PG and PDO flavorings so we get the correct weights for mixing by weight or can this be added to the programming without to much difficulty.
If you’re using it as an additive you could probably put it in as water/vodka/pga. There’s even a place in your preferences where you can add the price for it (at the bottom). The SG is 1.053 according to sigma-aldrich. It’s SG is closer to that of PG than water, but in the end I don’t know that it’ll make a ton of difference either way. PG is 1.036 and water is 1.00. So, until there’s a spot for it, I’d either put it as water or as PG. Then maybe just put in your notes that it is PDO.
Can I add the SG for just the 1 PDO flavor I ordered even though I have, use manufacturers SG selected in my preferences? Or would the software not recognize it that way. Sure would hate to go add all the SG’s manually for every flavor I have.
When you enter an SG manually, I believe it takes precedence to what is in the DB. A lot of the SGs are in the database and for any that aren’t, the calculator uses the default 1 g/ml. If you have mfg SG in your preferences, it should continue to work fine with all your other flavors.
