    I can tolerate it as long as it doesnt get past maybe25-30%. I used to mix everything max VG because of that and I began to notice everything seemed a little flat. The flavor is there, just not very vivid and bright. Thats the only reason I tried the peg400. I was trying to get better flavor. I had heard lots of people say max vg just takes longer to steep so I set up a little experiment to see if that was true and its not. IMHO anyway. The brightness seems to just be muddled a bit if that makes sense

    It makes sense to me. I don't recall anyone actually saying they got good flavor with max VG.

    I added 2% Black Tea to my Cucumber tea to fix sweetness and it worked but the mix is kinda blah. Same with my Fizzy Cucumber. They both need something for a brighter flavor.

    I didn’t take your post wrong at all. I literally would not for the sake of experiment vape a 50/50 blend, too thin for my preferred vape. Yes less vg provides sharper flavor but with diy I can compensate for that. I didn't get the impression anyone was "arguing" your point, just commenting on our choice of the bases we use. I love discussion and hate that I gave you the wrong impression.

    I was adding a couple things to my wish list at BCF and was surprised how expensive pink guava is. I added to my list since I want to try it but 5.20 seems kinda steep for 10ml.

    I did say I can get good flavor with max vg. I have to add naturally brighter strong flavors to achieve a flavorful juice that I would not need normally.

    I'm starting to get curious about the PEG400. I might have to get a bottle to try next time I order.

    That is why I want to try the INW white grapefruit, the FLV line is good but imo not so good as to warrant their prices. Do love the wild melons and will keep that one on hand. But the tangerine is nowhere near worth it's price.

    Fran I didn't mean to confuse you either.

    I don't vape more than 10% PG I am PG sensitive.

    I DO find my mixes brighter and less sweet using PEG40 than VG alone (I'm at 10% PG, 40% PG400 and 40% VG.

    I find it better and more flavorful than VG only.. That tastes muddy.

    I genuinely don't know if PEG400 would give you anything MORE or DIFFERENT than PG on its own.

    It MAY or MAY not be worth a shot. PG AND PEG400 both cut down on sweetness (based on my very limited experience with PG) but I DON'T think PEG400 would give you a lot of magical lack of sweetness ANY more than PG, necessarily.

    Again, it's hard for me to compare it because I am PG sensitive. I LIKE PEG400 a lot, but ONLY compared to max VG, that's about all I can say for it. I think it IS less sweet than VG and a better flavor carrier.

    I do NOT (in my limited opinion) think it will magically make flavors ANY less sweet, it will carry flavors and is LESS sweet than VG so probably a little less sweet but ONLY compared to max VG flavors.

    I hope this helps a BIT.

    Some seem pretty high but most FLV is never above 3% and a lot are 1% or less whereas TFA,CAP might need two or three times that.

    Wow, another recipe I have all the flavors for. I haven't used my LA lemonade yet, does it fade?

    I have zero patience. I mix the next batch on the first day I can try the last ones. Having new juice to taste takes my mind off the ones steeping.
