PIF me I love playing mad scientist, and I would love to have more flavors,
Hi @Andre, sorry to hijack the thread a little, but I am about to dive into proper DIY for the first time (I actually have a big box from Blck next to me on the desk). I also vape MTL for the most part, but most of the DIY recipes are aimed at DL setups. Apart from going to a 40/60, or 50/50 mix, will I ruin a recipe if I up the flavour % by 40%-50%? In essence, keeping the flavour ratios the same, but increasing the total flavour content of the recipe? The first batch will be a number of coffee variants, as well as the famous(?) Goofy's Juice.
I mix all recipes at the percentages stated. I have at one time for a pod type of system upped the flavour percentage, but found it made almost no difference. All I need to increase for pod type systems is the nicotine content. If you do want to increase the flavour percentages, I would not go higher than a 25% increase.
This has always been useful to me when building a new recipe to have a guide as to what flavours work well together
If you list your flavours I’ll attempt seeing if I can find something that can work. I’ve been diy for over a year now and had the same issue initially, but have since found my sweet spot pun intended
What is the rule of thumb for mixing %'s for making juices for MTL tanks?
Hey @herb1 - Unfortunately there isn't a silver bullet or rule of thumb so to speak... For the most part you want a higher VG/PG ratio like 60/40 or even 50/50 for pods.
Some concentrates are stronger than others and as such could be undesirable at higher percentages whereas some are less concentrated and could be bumped up by as much as 50%...
I would say you could try between a 15-25% proportional increase on your flavour percentages and see how that works for you... You could probably do a 30-50% proportional increase for flavors that are known to be particularly weak...
This all really depends on what device or atomizer you're using... An MTL atty would require less of an increase than a closed pod system for example.
I know some users like @Andre don't find a need for adjusting flavour percentages and that he simply adjusts VG/PG ratio and nicotine strength to suit his taste. Other mixers insist that you need to bump percentages for MTL or pod setups.
Sorry I can't help more than that... If you do ever find the holy grail for adjusting recipes for MTL or pod systems then please do tell
Lol I'm in the same boat. I started not making the best juices and the effort was too much. Since I switched to MTL vaping I am now just making 1 shot juices. So much faster and because I'm going through less juice with MTL it's costing the same as I would have spent making my own juices
I started out by buying a bunch of flavors. I learned a lot, like don't just buy concentrates, you can't fix a bad concentrate.
For me, I check what flavors a vendor has, if I haven't tried it and is along my line of taste, I research. If I find a good description and such, that is my first deciding factor. If I find little about a flavor, or every second person says it has something unpleasant, chances are that I will be skipping it.
I try out flavors that are frequently listed, in recipes that seem nice to me. Never used a recipe in my life, though I have gotten good at combining things that I like. Such as a melon milkshake, it definitely isn't for everyone!
Flavors that can be used standalone, are pretty much winners for mixing from my experience.
Going on that, has helped me, save money and vape happy.
I learned a lot from lurking on this forum, very informative posts around. Thank you to everyone who has tested, researched, and shared their experiences.
You would be amazed that someone else might like what you don't. I find that it is rare someone likes something I do not, has happened about twice ever.
But it sucked vaping concentrates that took months to get a use, or just got chucked because the taste of baby powder only made the taste of wtfisthisskintastingshiznix, taste like they merged to create something 300 times worse than rotten soap! Surprisingly still that some of the worst I mixed, was better than some china liquids I have had to endure even a puff of! I guess they mixed more 3 awful concentrates in one super-no-no.
