    Concentrate Percentages

    Hey Everyone, I thought a good first thread on this DIY Juice forum would be one about how much / what percentage of specific concentrates work for you.

    Here's what I've tried so far:

    Perfumer's Apprentice Mary Jane: Perfect at 10%

    Vape King's IMix concentrates:

    Lemon, Caramel, and Apple all at 15% (Will do a higher concentrate amount next as they need a bit more umph - especially the lemon and apple but haven't vaped the caramel by itself just yet.)

    Raspberry at 20% - will try 25% next. Really nice vape just not as stong in flavour as Vape King's Raspberry doubler.

    Now it's your turn! :-D

    Can anyone give me a rough estimate of how much it costs to DIY juice, as a comparison to buying a doubler ? Thanks.

    Very very rough estimate would be something like you could make two or more doublers and still be under the price of one commercial doubler. I don't think I'm doing DIY to save money though - I just really enjoy trying combinations and experimenting.

    Cost will vary depending on how much you are paying for the ingredients and the strengths used. A link to download the calculator I use is below. One of the Excel pages is a DIY Cost Calculator. Load in the variables and it will give you the costs.

    Regarding concentrate strengths, I mainly use PA concentrates and most flavours I mix at 15%. However, some like Cinnamon Red Hots I can't handle above 5%. That first 20ml of 15% near tore the lining from my mouth!!! LOL

    The expensive bit is trying out flavours and then figuring out your own favourite recipes (this costs time)

    When you have your recipes all tweaked to perfection it will cost peanuts. Especially with FlavourArt and some of the Perfumers Apprentice flavours....since they are so concentrated.

    If you go direct to flavourart you'd be paying about $5 for 20ml (you can buy larger amounts for a huge discount if you like) - You'd probably be using 10-15% flavouring at most...so 20ml of FA flavouring would give you about 170ml of juice (if my maths is right) mixed @ 15%. So that's $5 for flavouring+ PG/VG + nicotine + dropper bottle = 170ml of e-juice.

    It can be a lot of fun but at the same time isn't for everybody.

    Huh. Never thought of raspberry with tobacco. I like adding dark cherry to tobacco flavours though.
