    I just finished mixing my first batch of eliquid, Apple Madera Amaretto. I got great vape and good flavor, not much throat hit though. Which ingredient provides throat hit?

    Dripping FS 510 (the generic I mentioned I got from for $21.99) I don't want to appear cheap to anyone but I lost my job in February 2010 and I'm trying to be as frugal as possible with this wonderful thing called vaping. Started a virtual business and have made virtually no money yet..but I know it'll take off. Everything I've purchased has been on sale or clearance or a free sample thanks to this forum. Really, thank you.

    First Try Recipe:
    (5.5ml) 60mg flavorless PG
    (7.5ml) no nic VG
    1.5ml vodka
    (4 drops) 18mg Apple Madera (got the free 10ml sample from using ECF coupon code MADERA)
    4 drops of Amaretto flavoring
    YIELD: +/-15ml of, I'm hoping, around 24mg eliquid.

    PG tends to provide more TH than VG. VG has a tendency to produce more vapor and mutes the flavors a bit. Increasing your PG to VG ratio should help increase the TH in your mix.

    To help you calculate your mg you should use something like ejuicemeup calculator. eJuice Me Up - e-Juice e-Liquid Recipe Calculator This software is very accurate and allows you to save recipies in a file to be loaded again in the future. Very handy.

    What's more, using "Drops" as a measurement is very inaccurate and difficult to reproduce. Syringes, especially low dose models, are a far superior method of measuring your flavorings.

    Drops can vary by the dropper being used. It's much harder to raise the nic level than it is to reduce it. Get 5 posts and give the forum a chance to update and you should be able to post in the DIY forum. In the meantime, the DIY forums are here.
