    Default Ethyl Maltol crystals question.

    I just ordered an ounce of the Ethyl Maltol crystals and was hoping to get some tips on how much to add to liquids.

    TFA says "These can be dissolved in alcohol or Propylene Glycol @ 10%. (use a little heat)". But I find myself stymied on how to figure out how much of a dry crystal to add to a liquid to equal 10%. Liquid to liquid I understand. A cc in my syringe into a 10 ml bottle and I have 10%. But I haven't seen anything on this particular issue for all my hunting.

    I'd just add the crystals and shake to 10ml until they stop dissolving.

    You could weigh out one gram of crystals put it the bottle and fill to the 10ml mark

    Sitting down, facing forward, but that's not important right now.

    This question always pops up and always leads to a debate. According to Wizard Labs, 1/8tsp dissolved in 10ml of PG will result in a 10% EM solution. Some people have reported having problems getting the crystals to stay in suspension, but, knock on wood, it's worked for me every time I mix it. I do have to heat it, carefully, in the microwave and agitate it several times to get it all to dissolve, but it works for me.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I'm a curious sort. So I guess my next step after it arrives is to take an 1/8tsp and see if it weighs one gram...

    Crush the crystal to powder and add to warm PG. Makes the devolve process so much quicker.

    A Tablespoon is bigger than a Teaspoon

    an earlier post a couple of months ago said 1 gram to 17 ml.

    I put it in a warm ultrasonic, went into solution 5 minutes.
