    With the great selection of flavour concentrates/DIY juice creating supplies CANVAPE carries, it would be nice to have our own spot we can share some of our mixoligy experiences, and in my case, get some help from the more experienced.

    -I want to try making juice, what do I need?

    -Yes, taste is subjective, but I like to hear different opinions of a flavour anyway, and how it mixes up with other flavours.

    -Easy does it. It's not required to have a bunch of different flavours to make an excellent juice. Sometimes 1 or 2 cut it.

    -Some of us like nic in our juice. If not handled properly, it's dangerous. Lets keep each other safe while we create.

    -Jazzing up pre-made juice? HellzBellz Yaaa. All the reviews said it was to die for, but, um, for me.....it's lacking....something.

    -Additives? Oh, like sweet, sour, tart, well that makes sense.

    -I really want to make this juice but it's measured in %. Can I convert it to mls?

    Creating vapeable juice comes naturally to some, for other it's the start of what seems to be a list of never ending questions. Lets share the basics with each other, provide the foundation and see where that leads.

    You just never know what we could create with A Little Help From Our Friends.

    I'm just starting out so take this with a grain of salt.

    It's not rocket science. You don't have to make your own flavours, you just buy flavours and add drops to your base.

    Start by mixing an unflavoured juice at your nic level and vape it to get a base line. I'm surprised how much I like unflavoured juice. It's one of my "flavours" now.

    Get some single flavours you like to start with and add some . If you like colas, get some colas.

    Shake, vape.

    I don't like stong flavours and I'm not a 'super taster" so I'm finding it rather easy to get some good vapable stuff going. A few drops of flavour to my base and I'm happy.

    Darren is right. Start off with single flavours. Mix up a 3ml bottle. Vape it see if you like it.

    After a while start combining 2 flavours together (in your 3ml test batches).

    Oh and words of wisdom from a great guy. Write your recipe down!

    Ok gonna do a contest for an eVic with a DIY element.

    What do you guys think? Get people to post their recipes then we vote on which one we think is the best at the end? Or I decide and give it to one of our best customers like normal :p

    I take the same approach to mixing juice as I do cooking. I can hold my own in the kitchen & put out a pretty decent spread.

    But mixing good juice, the stuff with pizazz and a wow factor, not yet. I want to have complexity in what I mix. So for me, it is rocket science.

    I have mixed vapeable juice, but it always seems to be lacking something.

    There might not be enough canvape regulars/DIY-ers, but it could work. Letting the general population vote seems to get messy a lot too and people try to cheat. :(

    I wonder if therealcmac, mindfield and perhaps a third person could do the judging.

    One important thing with the DIY (And it was mentioned by Zero) is write your recipies down! I have a spreadsheet on the go with everything good, bad or ugly with notes. Helps with organization.

    Also, get yourself a copy of the Ejuice me up software eJuice Me Up - Best eJuice Calculator Mopar has a link on the Canvape site as well. If anyone wants to try a fantastic Wildberry mix:
    All TPA Flavours
    Blueberry 5%
    BlackBerry 7%
    Strawberry 8%
    Menthol 1% (optional)

    Enjoy!

    OK so mindfield and cmac can judge the winner so far it's spac :p The contest will close January 7th 2013 after all the recipes are dumped in this thread I'll get them all put into one thread as a Canvape DIY recipe thread.

    I really just want to give an eVic away :)

    I mean, if you really want to give one away that badly, I will begrudgingly accept one.

    I'm still confused about how this will get judged, because whoever does will need all these flavors or get samples. However I still love the idea, because eventually when I move past mixing plain juice I can try all of these. :)

    Sound tasty.. But please tell me the ratios are wrong. :) 66% Peaches and cream seems a bit extreme... :D

    Maybe that is why he is looking for the 30ml bottles of flavoring... couldn't resist.:)

    These are the % combos of flavours only. You add this combined flavour to your desired PG/VG/nic strength base, at the flavour % level that suites your taste.

    If you're like me & have lazy/dead taste buds, or want a bite my tongue off amount of flavour, go with 20% of it to start & 80% base.

    For those who still have active taste buds or prefer a subtle or hint of flavour, start with an 8%(maybe less depending on brand) flavour combo and 92% base.

    If you're unsure, start with less and build on it. Unbuilding is such a waste.

    These % levels are easy to adjust/change. eJuice Me Up Calculator makes it easier and canvape has a link under DIY recipes

    Unique has it right.

    I mix at 15% flavourings. So for a 30 ml bottle it's 4.5ml total. I then use those percentages to figure out how much I need.

    Then there is the 'soup pot' method. This is why you never, ever throw away juice you don't like ,,,, combine all juices you don't like including all the bottles of juice that you have not got around to finishing off. Shake and Vape. Chances are it is vapeable and it is good :)
