    All my juices suck. I came here hoping that some of you can help me. Otherwise, I'm going back to buying pre-made.

    Try Fuzion vapor, or vapor chef. There are amazing flavors out there! Don't give up! The internet is a great tool to find good reviews on juice, other products. There are many forums on here as well to find good honest reviews. I have a thread called 'best gourmet vendors' check it out! Good luck. :2cool:

    What kind of Juices do you have? How much Nicotine are in them maybe I can give you some ideas. I have bought the pre-made stuff and mixed them I have a favorite flavor that I can almost taste all my juices.

    Welcome to ecf.

    By your post, I see you have tried your hand at DIY. Have you read any recipes from the DIY forum here?

    DIY E-Liquid

    scroll down that page and read a while, but you will need to have 5 posts here in the new members thread before you can post there.

    Always a good idea to have some pre-made eliquid around anyway. Cant hurt.

    :)

    I would start by finding some recipes that sound good to you. It can take some time to tweak a juice so it just right. Keep in mind that you will make a bad one even when you get good at it. Let them steep most time make a bade juice vapeable .

    I simply tried using TFA and Flavor West flavoring fro OnestopDIY and all 40 taste awful. I've tried adding KAL pure stevia extract, no go. I tried dissolving 1/4 tsp in 10 ml of PG and adding 2 drops to a 3ml juice, also a no go. My banana juice was yummy at first and then it went from clear in my CE4 to almost black within a minute and tasted burnt and bitter. SIGH

    Definitely trial and error with juices. All of mine are from MadVapes. My favorites are butterscotch, blueberry lemon cotton candy, and cherry pomegranate. Hope that helps!


    Living, loving, and laughing all the time!

    What may well be your problem is the juice attachment you are using. Clearomizers are notorious for muting some flavors. And not all clearomizers are created equal. I suggest trying a couple of varieties of clearomizers and even a cartotank. Best flavor producers for me have been cartotanks and the Innokin iClear 30 clearomizer.

    Finding flavors that you like will be pretty much hit or miss, as no one can really pre-determinie what you will like. Taste is subjective. What one person likes another one will not.

    Best way to find flavors is visit a juice bar at a vape shop. Besides that, order samplers from those e-liquid vendors that offer them, or purchase only small bottles from those that don't.

    Sounds like you are burning your ejuice. The CE4's clearo are very picky and I quit trying to use them long ago. This may be a case where less = more. DIY ejuice needs to steep and most are not vapable right away. By steeping I mean aging them. So I would buy some pre-made until you can read in the DIY section here at ecf. Making ejuice is not anything like cooking even tho we use food grade ingredients.
    Here is the link to DIY again. Good luck

    I have to agree with the above; trial and error! I thought I would want something that tasted like a cigarette...imagine that! But; I have found that I like others so much better; cappuccino, caramel macchiato, and even a little strawberries and cream!! Best things EVER!!

    Banana is a tank cracker and doesn't react well with the plastic used in CE4's. I'd suggest a glass tank, like a Protank or a glass carto tank.

    As far as the DIY try single flavor eJuice first, the DIY forum is great, also read Hoosier's blog E-Cigarette Forum - Hoosier - Blogs

    Good luck
