    My purchase was less about real "preference," and more about local availability. I use the Graham brand "cellulo-cotton" purchased from a local Sally Beauty Supply. It seems (to me) to be the most popular/common/readily available rayon used by the vaping community. A 500' box ran me about $17/tax incl., no shipping, and I had it in hand immediately. That satisfied my need for instant gratification! :D

    (If you do go the Graham/Sally route; be sure you are getting actual rayon. They sell both a cotton version, as well as a crayon version, and it can be kind of hard to tell is some descriptions. The Rayon is not available in the 10' packaging.)
    I have not. I eagerly wait for your impressions. :)
    In my twisted mind; that kinda-sorta makes sense. If "sweet" is the last(?) taste to disappear from our plates; then is would make (some?) sense, that as the other flavors are diminished (from dilution), the sweetness might become more noticeable. :D:confused::confused::D

    I decided to try the RF SC cream cheese in 5ml of succulent strawberry. Can anyone tell me how many drops for .5%, which is .03ml?

    They say 20 drops/ml, which is .05ml each drop. But in my experience, it usually takes more like 35 drops to make a ml. 1/35 is .0285 or very close to .03 -- either way, it looks like 2 drops is too much. (Edit: you actually want .025ml though for .5% in 5ml.)

    between here and there
    I would go with 1 drop. Googled it and the closest I actually got was using this.
    Convert Milliliter to Drop
    and it is using 20 drops per ml.

    :)

    Googled it too, answers ranged from 20-45 drops. Put a drop in. Figured it's easy enough to add more if needed. I did finally find MysticRose's review of the flavor. At 3% first week a good cream cheese, cheesy notes and slightly sweet. After four weeks extremely strong, .25-1% mix. I'll try it at .5% with Purilum NY cheesecake in a mix.

    I'm loving this !
    While tasting the Double Chocolate Clear, I had my last Strawberry attempt in from of me and figured what the heck. (Plastic and fake chocolate - yummy)
    I dripped in some strawberry to the double chocolate.

    OMG ! They counter each other, no fake chocolate and no plastic strawberry !

    Went and mixed a 50ml bottle !

    Chocolate Strawberry Cream
    2ml TFA Double Chocolate Clear
    4ml Cap Fresh Strawberry (I started with 3 and then added another)
    1ml FW Sweet Cream

    I hope it lasts me long enough to see how it ages :lol:

    And that is Waaay more flavoring than I normally use !

    Only if you like grapefruit or guava. If you keep using the champagne and basil/cucumber I think you would use it some. I'm going to try a touch in a floral just for the hell of it.

    I do like grapefruit but never had guava. I like the champagnes and stocking 30ml bottles so I plan on keeping them. The basil and cucumber are new but so far liking them. I guess the Guava stays.

    It goes well with many fruits, I especially enjoy it with lime and cactus.

    I hear you!! The steeping process is torture for me lol! I mixed up abt 8 recipes. Several are custards that need time but the others should be snv ‘s so I’ll try them out tomorrow and let ya know if anything is exceptional. Well for me anyways. I’ll admit my tastebuds are not as refined as some of the more experienced mixers here lol!
