    Thoughts on this

    Hi All
    I'd just like to say how informative I find this forum - thanks

    My problem is I have all this good gear (starter kit from Vaping Cobra) but unfortunately no delivery of nic from OS before Easter.

    So thought I would make up some small amounts without nic to test the gear. Now the two flavours I received with the kit are Smooth Tobacco and Menthol and that's what I would like it to taste like - tobacco with a touch of menthol.

    So maybe - 60%PG-40%VG 10%Smooth Tobacco & 2%Menthol.

    Does that sound reasonable ?

    Cant hurt to try... Just make up a small batch so you can add to it without wasting too much.

    That's 112% but yeah should be about right. Haven't used those concentrates but it can be anywhere from 5-20% for concentrates. Also some tobaccos need to steep for a week+ to start tasting good. At least that's what they say, I'm not into tobaccos.

    Edit I mean 5-20% for flavour concentrates, 2% menthol should be about right

    What is written on the flavour bottles? Concentrate? Doubler?

    i would not set a high ratio at the start, you can always a drip or 2 more of concentrate as you go.
    having said that, what you said is probably a pretty good ratio to start with .. though ERR on the side of low with menthol, the concentrates can be insanely strong.
    a drip is around 1/30 of a ml .. so 1 drip in 3ml is roughly 1%

    In that case, start at 2% for the tobacco, and as Stoney says for the menthol ... you can always go up if need be
