I’m using Ethylmaltol to bring sweetness a bit higher. I know many will say It will dampening the flavor… So I ramp up aroma % a bit atm. Someone has other recommendations besides Sucralose? Sucralose kills my coils way to quickly besides the health aspects of course.
Sucralose used in moderation shouldn’t gunk up coils. I’ve used 1 drop per 10ml and had no problems. Nowadays I look at recipes with ingredients that are sweet on their own. As mentioned above meringue, marshmallow, brown sugar. I stopped using EM years ago when I found out some key ingredients already use it in their formulas. Strawberry Ripe (TPA) for example.
Personally, I’ve found that just upping the overall flavor on the sweeter flavors in your recipe helps cut down on putting additional sweetener.
Example: If you have blueberry, and candy… Rather than mixing some and adding sweetener to make it sweeter… up the % on the blueberry, and maybe a super minor increase in hard candy. I personally found above 12% on a 3MG freebase makes flavors muddle as well, I average 10% on any flavor, 6ish% on the main fruit, more if its the only fruit.
If the flavor just isn’t that sweet, consider finding another one, and using both to tone up the parts you like in them. There is always a way to make it work WITHOUT sweetener, you just need to make that a goal. (It will be harder on some profiles, but doable on most)
My juices so far have all come out relatively clear (fruity and candies for me) and taste strong and delicious, as well as taking quite some time to kill a coil.
I agree. A friend of mine vapes my Rockstar energy juice that contains 0.50% Super Sweet and loves it because his coils go 2 weeks easy with that juice. The mix comes out super clear, looks like a bottle of PG. I guess that is why it vapes so clean. I can’t remember the exact ingredients but it is modeled off this
Tangerine Mango Guava Strawberry, I know CAP Sweet Tangerine, maybe SC Mango, CAP Sweet Guava and not sure on the strawberry but yeah, none of those flavors adds any color to the mix and it burns clean, definitely not a gunker with the 0.50% Super Sweet in it
Thanks for the hint. I also use Ethylmaltol in small dosages max. 0.5% but sucralose I have the feeling that it makes the throat scratchy after some time as well while you vape it… Not sure I might have a smaller allergic reaction to it or of thats normal.
I use “Now Foods Stevia Glycerite”. It’s Organic Stevia in VG and requires no refrigeration. One bottle will last years (one -> two drops in a 30ml). Google to see if available. Sucralose is popular because it tastes closest to sugar and is cheap in bulk (for Commercial juice). @Dan_the_Man you like the Sugar Daddy? Ever try Stevia?
Sorry for the late reply… Thanks for the tip! I shall look into it. I’m testing Neotam at the moment and it really is a good alternative to sucralose. After 2 weeks vaping the same coils… no gunk at all. But stevia might be the best option. Neotam also had no after taste.
