Yeah probably only ever did the recipe on paper!
Yes I started diy and did recipes, man was that bad and a waste of money. Then went to well known one shots and buying a commercial juice here and there. Then one day I was bored and started playing around making my own recipes and finally it worked. Now when I want something new, I decide what profile Im looking at, google a bit what concentrates give what flavour and then mix. Only concentrate on one mix at a time and tweak every mix till you satisfied.
Now I have great diy juices, much better than the recipes, better than the one shots even. Hell Im even considering opening a juice line next year
It's not only about the money which is definitely not a negligible factor but also about the PG/VG ratio as I mix 50/50 90% of the time and about the nicotine strength since I vape mostly at 1mg nowadays. So yes, having one shots available is a a super great thing for me. I'm not sure whether the flavour profile changes much with my little tweaks but I keep what I like and throw the rest away which happened once or twice.
Yeah when i DIY i'm at 2mg and although i refer to it as 70VG i actually go for an overall 2 thirds VG, 1 third PG mix (inclusive of flavourings and nicotine) so about 33.33rPG/66.66rVG. Ready made e-liquids are very rigid in their available choices of mg (they tend to just stick to multiples of 3) and even ratios.
I never followed a recipe straight and yes I have looked at a few of them. I used to look at the flavour profiles and percentages but always seem to end up doing my own thing.
Main flavour+ sub flavour and additional flavours that compliments the main and sub.fill a 10ml concentrate bottle shake and toss in a 100ml bottle VG nic VG.
Recently I have left the 10ml concentrate mix to amalgamate for a while before mixing in VG and it works.
