    first time with concentrates. please help

    Howdy ACf
    I grabbed a bunch of tfa concentrates so I could mix up my own juice last week thanks to adrians lil comp he had. (Thanks again man)
    Now its come time to have some fun with mixing some juice up. First up I have strawberry and strawberry ripe. Been thinking I would do a 5% and 10% mix with each. When it comes to the final mix I am hoping to have 70vg/30pg 6mg nic 30mls
    My nic is 100mg nic 100% pg

    so I know to get 6mg nic for 30mls I use about 1.8mls of my 100mg nic
    When I am working out my 5% flavour do I go off the 30mls or the 28.2mls?
    With that when I am working out the pg and vg do I take the concentrate into consideration? Ie is the concentrate vg or is it pg?

    Not sure if I am over thinking it or what haha
    Thanks in advance guys and girls

    I normally work 15% of the total so in your case 15% of 30ml you may need to adjust up or down to your liking and as long as you are consistent you will get a good baseline.

    Make sure you understand the strength of your concentrates. 10% super concentrate will blow you away.

    Most concentrates are PG (unless specifically labeled) and count in your ratio

    Oh so 5% and 10% may be to weak? Happy to go a little higher as I like my strawberry ha.
    So if my nic is pg and my concentrate is also pg
    For 30mls this brings me to 5.3mls pg already (nic1.8 + concentrate 4.5mls) thats @15% concentrate

    I would suggest having a look on this site first e-Liquid Calculator

    You can make your own recipes and you can check out the details about what flavours you are using.

    I would start off at 15% and then work your way up or down.

    No worries, took me a few weeks before I found it when I started mixing up my own juice, It's a great tool to use. If you register an account on the site you can set up a flavour stash of the concentrates you own. This will allow you to access notes and recommendations about the flavours you have. Once you enter them all you can click on a button "what can I make" and it will show you all the recipes that you can make with the flavors you have.
