    The Flavor Apprentice Flavoring Thread

    I've been using a drop or two of menthol per 10ml to start. Any more than that and it starts becoming very overpowering and has a very weird taste. I've been using 15% watermelon and 1% sweetener and that's the closest I've gotten to good so far. I may try using a little more sweetener to see...

    The Flavor Apprentice Flavoring Thread

    I think my problem there might be the need for some TFA EM which I'll have to get on my next order. I'm told it not only sweetens/brings out flavors but also dulls the bitterness of some flavors.

    The Flavor Apprentice Flavoring Thread

    Has there been any popular TFA spearmint or watermelon recipes floating around? I had high hopes for those two flavors since those are what I mainly vaped from FSUSA but I'm just not getting the right mix or I'm missing an ingredient or two.

    The Flavor Apprentice Flavoring Thread

    I'm having some trouble brewing my own liquids and maybe some of you can lend a hand. I have the following flavors... Apple - Have tried up to 20% and still not getting any flavor Cinnamon Redhots - No issues really, mainly using it as a utility flavor Gummy Candy - Kinda crappy taste at 10%...

    TFA EM and sweetener.

    Awesome, thanks for the info. I'll give the sweetener a try since it's already inbound with my latest order and be sure to get EM on the next order.

    TFA EM and sweetener.

    Would the TFA sweetener be just as useful as the EM in your opinion? Sweetener seems to have more reviews than EM over at myfreedomsmokes which is why I grabbed that instead of the other. Will check out that blog post.

    TFA EM and sweetener.

    I'm new to DIY and so far I'm liking the TFA flavors over everything else I've tried so far. My only issues have been some flavors not really popping for me, or coming off rather bitter. After some extensive reading I have found that TFA EM, TFA sweetener, and TFA menthol are handy in those...

    List of good places to get DIY materials from?

    Just a small update... My order with MyFreedomSmokes went great. Shipping was a little delayed but not their fault, they shipped first thing Monday morning even though I distinctly recall reading on their website somewhere that orders ship tue-fri only. Package got delayed at the main hub in...

    The Flavor Apprentice Flavoring Thread

    Had some trouble brewing up a good 70/30/18mg TFA spearmint @ 2.5%. Was a little tasteless so I doubled the flavoring to 5% which brought out the flavor but still lacked sweetness. 1% TFA peppermint helped a bit but the peppermint is strong so any more than that will probably start to...

    TFA spearmint and TFA cinnamon redhots in vivi nova = safe?

    Litecigusa says their vision vivi nova tanks(clear with ML markings like mine) are polypropylene. Clouds of Vapor(where I got my kits from) and a few other popular vendors that carry these don't say.

    TFA spearmint and TFA cinnamon redhots in vivi nova = safe?

    I just got in to homebrewing my own liquids and among the flavors I purchased I got TheFlavorApprentice Peppermint and TheFlavorApprentice Cinnamon Redhots. I've seen a lot of complaints over the years about certain citrus and cinnamon flavors leeching, damaging tanks, etc. I've personally...

    List of good places to get DIY materials from?

    Thanks for all the replies! After checking out all of these websites it came down to two as far as pricing and selection goes and those were MyFreedomSmokes and RTSvapes. When I say selection I'm mainly talking about nic level. Many of the places listed so far seem to be limited to 36-60mg...

    List of good places to get DIY materials from?

    Well I'm asking here because that's the point of this forum and this section. I'd hate to place an order with someone that isn't reputable.

    Anyone have anything to say about RTSvapes? Thanks for the recommendation. Checking them out right now. :vapor: ETA: Looks like RTSvapes has them beat on pricing and selection so far.

    List of good places to get DIY materials from?

    I've been vaping for 2 years now and I've done and tired it all except homebrewing. A few months back I decided to give it a try and to my knowledge wizardlabs.us was the place to go. Well over the last few months they've been having website issues, or stock issues, or employee training...

    500 Internal Server Error

    I'm still seeing constant 500 errors and infinite loading times. Last month I was barely able to place my order, now I can't place one at all. Why is this taking so long to resolve? As an IT guy I see problems like this all the time that are resolved in a matter of minutes, or hours if moving...
