    I do TC. Open air unless it's too open and washes out the flavor. Long DTL, short DTL doesn't matter. If I'm getting a sore throat turn the temperatures down. If I'm vaping too much take shorter puffs.

    I have a recipe that has me stumped. Recipe is
    Boozy Basil Rhubarb
    FLV Basil .25%
    INW Rhubarb 1%
    FA Lemon Sicily .5%
    INW Strawberry Shisha .5%
    VT Scotch Whiskey 1%

    So I'm finding this mix a bit too sweet but on the other hand it's not.

    Also finding it too fruity but then again it's not

    So I really don't if I have a problem or not.

    The VT Scotch Whiskey takes over a mix at 3% but at 1% you can barely taste it or not at all. Maybe it just needs another !% Whiskey. IDK.

    Thank you, @FranC; that is a wonderful suggestion. Unfortunately, I tried it with my existing DTL tanks (which have adjustable airflow; and con be made quite restrictive), and they either were "tight enough" and had poor flavor; or they had decent flavor, and were too loose. If too loose, I end up subconsciously, reverting to DTL inhaling; which is what I am trying to get away from. Minimizing my vapor consumption is most important to me right now.:oops:

    I am liking my new Berserkers; I am just still learning what is the best build in it, for me.
    That is my understanding, from my reading, too. But, with the owner's response, I have no clue what I should be expecting at this point.:confused:

    I'll give my testers another week "just because," and then I will try doing some controled dilutions/fractioning. I would not even begin to rule out the possibility, that I over-flavored my testers, and am suffering some flavor suppression.;):D
    I have an old Kanger Subtank Mini, that I think I still have a drop-in coil for. But, the last time I tried to take it apart, I had issues. I will have to look at it again.

    I haven't used drop-ins, since mid 2013; I am way too cheap, and it ticks me off to pay the prices most mfgs. are asking. I am a competent builder (nothing earth shattering; but competent). It is just a matter of finding which build is going to give me the best flavor. :)

    Sounds like you might be over-analyzing it. :laugh: Vape on it a while and see what a longer session tells you. :)

    Lemon Sicily always had a bit more natural sweetness (than say INW Lemon) to me. And, Strawberry Shisha always struck me as a very sweet candy-like strawberry (again... to my palate;)). I still have the shisha in my stash; but I rarely reach for it these days. :D

    Hi Joel I was curious as to why you’re switching over to MTL vaping to reduce vape input. Is it healthier? I started MTL then DL which I still enjoy but occasionally I like to have a more restricted vape too.

    This was mixed a month ago so the tad of lemon has already faded away. I'll give it some mre vaping time but the fix just might be a tad more Whiskey. I really don't do well with anything fruit forward.

    I am one of those peeps....Have several Kanger subtank mini's using the rba's in my daily rotation. You just can't beat those tanks. Airflow adjusts, flavor is top notch and no leaking. Can't ask for more than that.

    :)

    Has anyone tried the VT Rice Base? Thinking of making it the 4th flavor on my BCF wishlist.

    I have no idea what "is" and "isn't" healthier when it comes to vaping.;) It was more a matter of I just didn't like the way I was feeling. If you want more details, on the whys and whats, I just posted this on another thread.
    Hooray!:thumbs: What was the solution?

    Tasted the new RF VG additions to a well aged Watermelon. It had a certain funk about it. Sucked it back out of the tank and put it back in the bottle for aging.
