    I am having a problem with the flavor of my DIY juice. I am mixing with syringes. Using 1ml Capella sweet cream, 3ml Flavour Art Forrest mix, 3ml Inawera Shisha Strawberry then filling a 30ml bottle with Liquid Nicotine Wholesalers premixed 90/10 6mg (approx. 23ml). I get very muted flavor no matter if it steeps 1 week or 1 month. I recently ran out while on vacation and had a local shop mix a berry flavor for me. With no steep it had much more flavor. Any idea on why my flavor is muted?

    It looks like your ratios on the flavors are about right. I'm not a math expert, but it looks like the flavor totals are almost 25%. There's a point where too much flavor can be muting. I think you might want to aim for 7-10% total flavor on this one.

    Your recipe is waaaaaaay over flavored. Both Inawera and FlavorArt are very strong flavors.

    For 30ml try:

    0.60 ml Shisha Strawberry
    0.60 ml Forest Mix
    0.30 ml Sweet Cream

    Let it steep at least 7 days then try it. If you need a bit more flavor add only 0.15 ml (half a percent) at a time.

    Agree, your mix may be over flavored. Suggest you single flavor test (SFT = Single Flavor Testing) each flavor. You might like to accent the strawberry and cream and drop the forest flavor downward.
