Hey guys. Congrats getting your vape on!
I used to smoke when I was a teenager, for about 8 years or so... started dipping about 4 years ago and switched to vape about 6 month ago.
Since then however I've gone completely off the res and consider myself an official vapegeek.
I've been DIYig almost the whole time I've been vaping and just starting trying some of the fancy juices.
A couple tips on DIY.
Take notes. Sometimes it takes me 6 weeks to get a flavor dialed in. I don't want to waste time making the same mistakes over again or over
Test each flavor individually. Start at 3-5% and work up until the flavor hits that sweet spot. Some flavors for instance I have a 'natural' berry
that is perfect at 4-6% overpowering at 10% and almost flavorless at 15%
Once you have some flavors nailed down you will know where to go from there. If you want a flavor to be the main note in the juice, rock it at the
percentage where it vapes well as a standalone. Once you start to add a side note or complimentary aspect of the juice, you can better expect what
that flavor is going to bring to the table and what it will taste like at say 50% of "full flavor" I hope that makes sense.
Also I take my measurements by weight.
Specific gravity of VG for example is 1.26 grams per ml
PG - 1.04
Grain alcohol .96 g/ml (or thereabouts)
50/50 nic 1.14g
Etc etc. I treat most flavors as 1 g/ml as they're usually pg it PGA and its just easier that way.
A juice I make and have been enjoying lately:
(Can't recall what flavor manufacturers for sure but I'll try)
Coil oil @ ~10% flavorings by volume 10ml
Chocolate (FA) 4%
Sweet cream (FA) 4%
Vanilla. (Jungle?). 1%
Graham cracker (Cap.) 1%
Caramel (ECX) 1 drop
Black n mile (ECX).1 drop
Vape wizard 1 drop
Sucralose sweetener (FA) 2 drops
Maybe ethyl maltol 2 drops
Vape on folks!
