    If you ever want to try a different brand besides FA you might like the alcohol based super concentrated tobacco flavorings sold at ecigexpress under tobacco express or at Vaping Zone under super concentrated. Easy low percentages faster steep too.

    Thanks, I'll check those out. I mainly started with fa cause I'm newer to mixing and it's a popular brand. I'll go for anything that it's good and works well though... cheap is nice too lol.. Off course mixing your own stuff is pretty cheap anyway.. or it will be once I stop contributing to my suicide juice trash mix.. :/

    I'd probably try to get them pretty warm with hot baths.. keep water level below 3/4 Mark of water and leave cap off.. maybe it'll help the alcohol evaporate.

    I use bitter wizard to cut sweetness.

    I add a couple drops of koolada to fruit. Not enought to be menthol but gives a cool exhale. I also use a drop or two of AAA magic mask. Or you could use something like smooth. Here's a description

    Smooth Flavor PG Concentrate (TFA)

    I think the reason why they say start at 1 or 2 percent is that some flavors are really intense and you don't want to over-flavor. For example, I think that for some reason cherry flavors tend to be like that. That said, it wouldn't be uncommon for some of your flavors to end up in the 10-20 percent range. I just started DIY, but the three recipes I'm using right now are at ~8%, 10%, and 12% depending. The 12 percent one is a blueberry RY4 that has a lot of flavors fighting each other!

    Yeah.. air on side of caution..lol. I would agree as of recently that a complex recipe is going to go up higher in the percentages just to get the right notes to the surface. I also found that with just using a single flavor you can go with less.. I'm testing that for certain right now.. steeping a fa 7 leaf ultimate base in its recommended minimum at 1.5% in a mostly cut vg base only pg is in my nic and it's only at 20%. I know flavor doesn't cut through vg quite as strong.. so I'm really curious what this will yield after steeping.
