    DIY noob here. I bought some samples of Lorann's naturals, and found that even at 25% flavoring of berry/fruit mixes I wasn't getting enough flavor for my taste. I'm making 50pg/50vg juices at 16-18mg of nic. How much does everyone else here use with natural flavorings?

    I have not used Lorann's. I'm wondering if you used too much? An excess of flavoring can cause flavor to diminish. Did you start at a lower percentage and work up to 25%. How many flavors did you mix together? Is the 25% total flavoring? How do the individual flavors taste mixed individually? Sorry to ask more questions then just give you and answer.

    25% total flavoring. I used 4 flavors.
    Lorann's natural flavorings are supposed to be 1/2 the strength of their regular flavors. In another mix I had used 2 flavors and started with a combined 15%. Was pretty weak so I moved it up to 20% which was much better (probably due to the fact that the pomegranate was pretty sour) but still wanted more flavor. So in the new 4 flavor batch I just started at 25%, and it's still pretty weak. I'll change my wick, maybe that'll do the trick.

    I think my problem was that I was mixing to many concentrates. The flavors seem to have been working against each other, and none shone through. 25% should have been enough, as evident from my other mixes. In the future I will use only 1 main flavor and 1 or 2 flavors as modifiers.
