Single flavour help please 😳

Hi guys me again haha I am trying to do a single flavour spearmint I have done a 8% - 12% and just done a 5 % and none of them really taste like it I can taste the spearmint in there but it just tastes so sweet my pg/vg is 40/60 using an isub tank so I should really be getting the full flavour? Or am I missing something thanks guys👍

The concentrate I am using is Capella :+1:

Oh and i was wondering what the other taste was so I tasted my vg as its is pharmacy grade for coughs (b.p glycerin) and it kind of tastes like that but on my 12% the spearmint was very strong and sickly I vaped spearmint from shops before I started diy and I love them I just want to get that flavour :flushed::+1:

I’ve never had the VG you’re using nor the flavor. However, from my experience most mints are quite strong and don’t really need much to be good. Then again one user, @sydsut, shows a preferred single flavor mix at 20%. Wow! Again, I’ve never tried it so I can’t confirm or argue about it.

Your VG should be basically flavorless. If you’re getting a taste from it apart from some mild sweetness you may want to consider finding a different source for you VG. There are many places you can get it. I only buy from Essential Depot, a gallon or two at a time. They have some good deals if you are in the US.

If I were you and had some PG around, I would try making a small test batch (if 5% tasted good, start there) and see if it’s better and not as sweet. Who knows, it could be your VG throwing everything off.

i was trying a spearmint with tfa and tried 10% to start and wow it was terrible dropped to 5% same thing ended up dropping to 1% before i gave up. it had a dry hit with a throat bite i couldn’t handle.(tried max vg and 50/50)
my guess was you had to add something to it to make it taste right but was at a loss of what it needs…

Side note: Spearmint from Flavour Art is really good and very concentrated - You only need like 3% to get a good single mix going :smile:

Have you tried doing a mix without flavoring, to see if the flavor is ok?


Not a lot of love for Spearmint (Cap) in the database only one person submitted a suggested single flavor percentage, and they said 20%. Normally I take such a high number with a grain of salt, but I do have at least one flavoring that absolutely needs to be around 20%

I have never used Caps Spearmint but one thing we all know is no flavor company has ALL good flavors. Capella is no exception. Maybe there is a reason there’s not a lot of love for this flavor…

Is your complaint that the Spearmint is sweet? Capella seems to make many of their flavors more Candy Like and Sweet. If it is too sweet then I know of nothing you can do to remove sweetness. You can only go to another company’s Spearmint (that’s not sweet) either completely or mix Spearmints…

I have FW Spearmint and have loved it in the couple of recipes I’ve used it in (Mint Chocolate and Mint Tea). I’m a big fan of all things spearmint related. You might give that a shot. Also, if daath says FA spearmint is good, chances are it really is. Get it first. :wink: FA makes good stuff.
