    My current frustrating DIY moment. I have new flavors I've been excited to try, got the time, supplies are ready, but I have a head cold. I can't smell a thing. Even peppermint+Koolada is like vaping steam. Bummer...

    to me it would be the time it takes to make different small quantity trial recipies which runs out quick and then u need so much more time again and again and again ..... my personal preference is start vaping after 3 days of steeping. it tasts so fresh and yumm !!

    Toughest thing for me to do is after making up a bottle of my newest flavor try, "Ye Old Drain Cleaner" and not using it for the purpose implied by the name...:facepalm:

    That's the problem with making everyone else's recipe's. It never lives up to your expectations. That's why you need to create your own mix and forget about creating a recipe or replicating a venders juice until you know what you are doing. Follow the basic rules. Start low and make many test batches. Taste each individual flavor so you know what each flavor your combining taste like. Understand the process of steeping and when it's nessessary, understand percentages and correct measuring. The only thing that will tell you a juice is good are your own taste buds.

    Dannyv45 I am awarding you the "Smartest Person On This Forum" for today award (may change tomorrow). I just dumped 3 test batches of "great recipes" down the drain (yes they did steep for more than 10 days). I have cleaned out the bottles and am starting from scratch the way you say to do it. I thought I could at least get an idea of what percentages were way too low or way too high but apparently that is not the case. I know that taste vary but "horrible" is "horrible" in anybody's book. If I have three fried chicken recipes I may like all, none, or some but I expect them to taste somewhat like fried chicken.

    Whoever said "Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see" was a smart person. I would add to that "anything you read". I am sure that there are some great recipes on this forum and on other sites but I just don't have the time or money to pick them out.
