    Okay, so my last thread, I got so much help on
    Now I need more. My husband has been smoking a vape for a while and likes juice flavors. He recently started making his own juice.but it's come to a point where the juice flavors are just to sweet. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on either diy juice or a brand/ flavor.
    Recipes are always appreciated when it's a diy

    What kind of flavors does he like? Fruity, desserts, drinks, menthol/mints, tobacco?

    So it started with a custard. And then it went to fruity flavors.
    He has really liked juice head - pineapple grapefruit; and the strawberry kiwi.
    Then in the high nic he smokes the peach pear and the guave peach I think.

    So fruit if possible but it has gotten to sweet for him.

    Not to be strident but only for your elucidation: He's "vaping," not smoking. He "vapes" the peach pear & guava peach. No smoke, no smoking. It's a PR optics thing. :)

    Along with the elr site that smacuser showed you, you might also find useful info & recipes at diyordievaping.com & 99juices.com.

    For ready-made e-liquid, thedollarejuiceclub.com is still shipping, w/ limitations, and offers sampler packs w/ small bottles of several flavors. Might be worth looking into.

    Sweeteners are always optional. I never use them.

    Since you say he is trying to do DIY juices, can you tell us what supplies/equipment he has? VG, PG and nicotine? Bottles, syringes, a scale, flavor concentrates, sweetener? More details always help. Where are you located (no need to be specific... just a general idea)?What nic strength is his usual juice?

    I don't know much about it, but there are additives that are for bitterness, but if used at very low levels will help to remove sweetness before they actually make the juice bitter.

    One that I have seen (but have never used yet) is Flavour Art (aka FA) Bitter Wizard.

    what brands and flavors is he using?
    Is he adding sweetener to his juice? If so, well just don't :D most flavorings are sweet enough on their own and *IF* after you're (he's) done mixing and vapes it and feels that it's not sweet, you can always add a few drops of sweetener to the mix afterwards until it's where you (he) likes it.
    But most fruits and custards are sweet enough really on their own or combined together...I rarely, next to never use sweetener. Also because sweetener will gunk up your coils faster.
    It might also be a using too much of the flavoring, some flavorings really only need a little bit to impart it's flavor.

    as far as recipes go, would need to know more about what he likes to vape or what he likes to eat/drink
    one of the folks here in the forums likes to add tfa acai or inw rhubarb to her vapes to help cut some of the sweetness out of them.

    maybe instead of using custards try using a cheesecake flavor tfa cheesecake to me is less sweet or pur new york cheesecake, they work well for a cream or their intended purpose of cheesecake (but for me cheesecakes need more graham cracker and/or biscuit (cookie) for a base and mascarpone cheese to it...but I do like a more tart cheesy cheesecake)

    I flip back and forth between sweet and savoury vapes

    but yeah just a point of clarification ;) it's vaping/vape(s) there's no smoke/smoking a vape unless you over taxed the battery and it vents or you really really really burnt the heck out of the wick :pervy::lol:

    Just want to say everything @Shadav said I agree (good tips)
    On a side note... does he like mint? Maybe not by itself but it goes well with fruits (I don't mean menthol even though many people like that too... just good ol' peppermint)
    Some custards are too much for me but a good option is Bavarian cream (and as mentioned cheesecake with graham) Works great with fruits. About peach... can be too much on it's own but I have found peach/mango/apricot a perfect combo (I add something creamy to it) For tropical, I have a pre-made juice called POG (passionfruit/orange/guava) that can be made DIY. Personally, I like darker berries (blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry) Oh... and then there is citrus (lemon, orange, grapefruit) Here's a very helpful chart (I don't normally post large images... hop I don't offend anyone)
