How I test new flavorings and hone in on the amount to use.

Using the drop method will quickly help you determine the flavors profile and hone in on the amount of flavoring needed.

Mix up some base and place it in a squeeze bottle with a luer lock cap and 14ga needle.

For a 20% flavor mix

Add 4 drops base then clean the needle and place it on a 1ml syringe and draw up some flavor and add 1 drop flavoring. Mix then test vape your sample.

For a 10% flavor mix

Add 9 drops base then clean the needle and place it on a 1ml syringe and draw up some flavor and add 1 drop flavoring. Mix then test vape your sample.

For a 5% flavor mix

Add 19 drops base then clean the needle and place it on a 1ml syringe and draw up some flavor and add 1 drop flavoring. Mix then test vape your sample.

Taste all mixes and determine if the flavor is right for you and at which concentration is good for your particular taste. At this point you should be ready to fine tune this mix using your usual method of experimentation.

This quick down and dirty method can put you in the ballpark by helping you determine the flavor profile and hone in on the percentage you would need for this particular flavor.

I do this quite often with new flavorings and it has worked quite well and helps me save lots of material. It's a quick down and dirty easy test but realize it does not take into account steeping that may be needed and is not a guage for percentage accuracy due to fluid viscosity or temperature changes. I use the same needle for all drops cleaning it after each use to keep the drop size as consistent as possible.
