    PG, VG and taste.

    Hi all,

    I was buying my flavours at 80% VG and mixing them to a 12mg/ml nic strength and was enjoying them immensely. Next time I ordered the same flavours, I ordered them at 80% PG instead ...... And the flavour sucked! Tasted TOTALLY different. Would swapping them from 80%VG to 80%PG really make that huge a difference to the taste? I have ordered more of the same flavours but this time back to the old 80%VG base and PREY that they taste as good as I remember.

    if i may digress.. Eldubya.. where abouts are you getting 80vg flavours from? Oh.. and on topic.. im with <---cop, vg based juice is sweeter and smoother, but definately a little more on the subtle side.

    hmm, i was vaping pg and nic or VG and nic and the pg tastes sweeter to me than vg.
    i think it may come down to specific atty temps .. or my taste buds suck, equally likely.
    I do not get much of any flavour from vg, tastes quite neutral.

    I read somewhere that some of the base is converted to glucose, not sure on the chemistry.

    Flavours from Vaping Mad. They have 50/50, 80%VG and 80%PG as flavour base options.

    Here's something I posted on someones thread, should give you a better understanding of why the VG taste better if you are mixing it as I stated.

    So to make 10ml, mix 5ml VG doubler with 5ml PG unflavoured nicotine. You will end up with 60% PG and 40% VG.

    For a less sweeter mix but more vapor, mix 80% PG doubler instead of VG with 100% VG unflavoured nicotine instead of PG using the same ratio. You will end up more 40% PG and 60% VG.
    PS. Did you notice more vapor with the flavour that didn't taste as nice?

    3.1ml PG 36mg
    0.2ml VG
    1.8ml PG
    5ml Doubler Flavour

    That makes 10ml of 12mg/ml e-liquid. (or so I am led to believe)

    That's the recipe I have always used since I started vaping. I am honestly hopeless at maths and all these e-liquid calculators do my head in. So I asked someone when I first joined AVF how to mix doublers to 12mg/ml strength and this is what they replied with, so this is what I have been using. I don't know if it's right or wrong ..... lol.

    Okay I have no idea then haha, if you mixed 50/50 like I stated then that would be the case.

    So did you get more vapor with the PG or VG doubler? Or was it the same?

    LOL, I know it comes to 10.1 you clown .... haha.

    Addiction/Subtraction isn't my problem. Fractions, percentages and anything else that isn't addition or subtraction and shit are
