    What a great idea, sucks though cause I've only just got into DIY and have very few of those flavors.

    Going to have to place a huge order this month and start playing around for next year

    Agree with the great idea, but not with the list. I realize in this format why it will only be done with what the supporting vendor who has stepped up has available though.

    But that's probably the best part of it. A limited list allows some creativity and somethings you might not have thought of before.

    @shaunnadan and @Richio thanks a lot for convincing me to join the comp guys. Gonna have to place a nice big order tomorrow :-D:-D:p:p:p:p

    Hi

    The competition runs for most of the day. But you need only be present in the afternoon for prize giving :)

    The process is that you pm me your recipe using the format and concentrates from the original post. I will do the mixing and then have the juice at VapeCon 2016 for everyone to blindly sample.

    No one will know who made the juice or the recipe information until after prize giving. It will be left to the public to sample and pick their favorite.

    Yea i made the mistake to put a drop on my finger and taste, i almost died. It comes from behind from a very nice cool place and grab you by the throat and if it wants to choke all the life out of you. Your throat closes up and you can drink water try to breath through your nose, nothing helps. You must just keep calm and hope you have enough air in your lungs. I am very scared of that shit now
