    Default What can I make with these?

    Hey, I am new to these forums PVs and of course DIY e liquid. So today I got my protank 2 to go on me ego style battery. I ordered 10 Lorann dram bottles and I was wondering what I could make with the flavors I have. I made one 30ml batch but it wasn't the best so I want my next batch to be a little more quality
    These are the flavors I got:

    Grape
    Cotton Candy
    Tropical Punch
    Pina Colada
    Apple
    Orange Cream
    Licorice
    Mango
    Peach
    And I used the rest of my strawberry kiwi in my first batch

    Any ideas or pre existing recipes which might make a dope second batch. Thanks!!

    Tropical punch and grape should make a satisfying sour tart. In a 10ml bottle I would use 15 drops of each. Lorannes orange cream sucks. If you find a good use let me know. I would probably mix it with Licorice to try and get an absence flavor. Peach is good by its self. Cotton candy and apple are useless. So I would make some hard candy with those two.

    The way I started out was to make up a big batch of unflavored nicotine base in my favorite mg strength.

    Then make up 3 to 5 mL batches of each flavor by itself, shake 'em up and taste each. Once you know how
    much flavoring to add so that you like it, you can drip a couple drops of different combinations into an atty.
    See what combinations you like, like cooking, taste the ingredients and spices, then make up combinations.
    JonnyB88 and grma8 like this.
    I'm puffin' on a pipe bomb and carrying a detonator in my pocket,
    so just what was it you wanted to hassle me about ?? (No, I do not sub-ohm, pipe bomb is a joke)

    Remember to write down what you put in so you can remake it! Have fun!! I'm waiting on some different flavors myself so I can start experimenting again. I've been DIY'ing for 8 months it's time for some new stuff. Happy vaping to ya!

    I'm bad with drop as I have different size droppers and my anxiety always makes my hands shake really bad when it comes to cooking up something that requires precision. It's funny I guess but it makes counting drops hard. I know that's really stupid but anyway what percentage would you say that 15 drops in a 10ml solution is?

    I too would recommend making smaller test batches. Making 30ml of unproven is a shot in the dark, and it will tak emuch longer to steep and mature (if you don't have a UC). I do mine 5ml and usually have 12-15 going at a time to find more ADV's for my stash. I'm working with 40+ flavors even though I've only been doing DIY for a few months now. Some are real easy, some still have me guessing, but I have not had any attempts so bad they got tossed out because I did lots of reasearch first.

    I'd also suggest you download the eJuice Me Up calculator. Lots of recipes already there to weed through. Another rec is to check out e-Liquid Calc authored by ECF member daath. Easyh to use, lots of recipes submitted by ECF members that you can do a search for by flavor. For example, I just ran grape and got 5, peach and got 20 to choose from. e-Liquid Calculator

    As I said I am fairly new at DIY too, don't do a lot with fruit vapes, but can add some notes from my short experiences that may or may not help you. Some weak flavors have a small window they work in, use too little OR too much and you won't get them. Strong flavors can be over-powering, so go easy with them. As a new to DIY, doing it KISS works better than trying to get too complex. Single flavor is the easiest, or simple blends while you learn and explore new flavors. Recipes are only a starting place to modify from, what tickles somebody elses toes may or may not tickle yours.

    Grape... I don't do grapes except fresh for a snack.
    Cotton Candy... stand alone, works well added to other flavors.
    Tropical Punch... no idea.
    Pina Colada... stand alone that may work, but I like my own verson better.
    Apple... can be a stand alone, great with Caramel and sour (or sour apple).
    Orange Cream... weak flavor.
    Licorice... overpowering, go easy, some like lemon with it.
    Mango... weak flavor.
    Peach... lots of fruit vapers love peach stand alone or mixed.

    FWIW

    Can you tell me more about steeping or send me a link? I didn't know you had to let it steep unless it was an extraction. All I did on my mediocre first batch was add 3.7ml of strawberry kiwi with .625ml of peach and .625ml of mango with 25ml of a 65vg/35pg 20mg mix. I shook it real good and then vaped it. What does steeping involve, should I leave the cap on or have it sealed and for how long? Sorry for the noob questions I really appreciate the help on this forum, people want others to have good vaping experience

    You absolutely do not have to let it steep, if you choose not to. Always taste your mixes fresh, if they're good to go, vape away. If they're meh, some have benefited from leaving it in the cabinet (dark place, shake every day) for a couple of days. If they're just terrible, there's a good chance that it may not be redeemable... however, that is, like all things in this realm, subjective and completely up to you

    On your topic: Without having tried many of those flavorings (from LorAnn) Apple + Mango sounds pretty tasty. You can use the cotton candy to sweeten any other flavoring that you feel it lacking, but try the flavors before adding.

    Someone made mention of making single flavors, and then dripping two or more single flavors into an atty to test them. Great advice!
    I support the CASAA!
    Mostly just the ProVari now 'n days

    Only problem with making single flavors is I only have 4 dropper bottles to work with right now (I know I'm working on it but I spent my last bit of extra cash getting what I have now), though first chance I get I'm going to order more bottles. Should it steep with the cap ON I assume? Also next time I order more should I stick with lorann or is there a more preferred flavor vendor. Thanks
