    if i have a 15ml bottle of Ethyl Maltol from TFA, am i suppose to make a 10% solution with PG first, or is it ready to be used straight from the bottle? ive read many posts regarding this, but i need a specific answer wich i cant seem to find. i know cotton candy is EM at 10% solution, but not sure if what im reading about diluting EM is regarding EM crystals or the liquid itself wich is what i have now. please be specific with your answer. thank you

    If it is in liquid then you do not need to dilute it. It has already been diluted for you.

    Use it as is no need to dilute it. Us it in 1% increments wait a day then add more if needed.

    Sounds like you already have a diluted solution. Use that as-is.

    However, I use VERY little EM. I've seen people using 3% or more! but for me that is WAY too much. I never go over .5%. Also, the more you add, the less flavor you'll get, and the quicker your devices will clog up with gunk.

    Just my anecdotal opinion.

    thank you for anyone who answered specifically! haha i am somewat dumb sometimes and even tho i read something a million times, i still dont get the assurance i need for my questions. thanks again.

    also, when i first started using it i think i used ATLEAST 5% at the time cuz i was not aware of how much i should use, and lets just say your right on the flavor loss. haha
