    % of concentrate to use...

    Hi guys,
    I just purchased all my gear to start making my own ejuice. How high a % of flavour should i use to get a nice taste? I have a strawberry flavourart that i wanted to try and when i look online it says to use 2 or 3% and it seems a little weak. Any advice? Thanks guys...

    For a single flavour I would go 8℅ and higher.

    For FA Strawberry, I'd use 4-5% (as it is one of the weaker FA flavours) if you want reasonable flavour. Hit you in the face flavour will require more, however

    yep what everyone said
    2-3% is way to low for a single ingredient.
    8% is a good starting point with fruits... if you add custards and deserts, I go as far as 10 -18% total.
    but its really up to your tastes.

    Try adding earl grey tea at 10%. I had it at 6% and it hit like a diesel tanker hitting an ammonium nitrate tanker hitting a fireworks truck.

    I couldn't breathe for a few minutes!

    Eeeerghhh. I don't think we have any of those here.

    Look it really depends on the flavour guys. You should test the flavour to determine your own ideal levels and to find out if the flavour even works for you. It's the single hardest and yet the most important thing in DIY. Doing it always almost guarantees that you don't mix arse juice. Start very low and work your way up.

    Repeated, just in case someone missed it.

    I don't pay any attention to recommendations of how much flavour to stick in anything any more, it's always 'wrong', if 'wrong' is simply defined as it does not work for me.

    There are some flavours that you do need to be somewhat careful with though. Cinnamon, clove and things that have a reputation for being 'strong' across all suppliers of flavourings. You start with the barest hint of it, try it, and add until you get to a point you're happy with.

    Stu.
