Well, I guess I really don't even qualify to be a newbie since I haven't tried DIY yet but what I'm wondering is how I can bring some Vanilla flavors that I have to life. I went on a recent rampage trying to find a good Vanilla and I have probably 10-12 Vanilla flavors that are seriously lacking in flavor and sweetness. I'm hoping to get some advice on how I might be able to doctor some of these up or if this is even possible or if it's even worth it. Do I just need to pick up some Vanilla flavoring and some sweetener or what? And what type of utensils will I need? I also need to get an idea of how much I should add? The ones that I want to try to doctor up are either 30ml or 15ml bottles. Even though I do plan on diving into DIY eventually, right now I'm just trying to get some advice on doctoring up some of this Vanilla that I have. I could also use some help on finding a good DIY vendor. I've heard that HOLY GRAIL OF VANILLAZ from Flavor Shack is pretty good. Any advice would be highly appreciated.
