    This is the recipe for my third favorite juice, and the best one I have made.
    My top two is a peach yogurt and a juice that my buddy had made(he hasn't given me the go ahead to share it.) All advice on how to improve it further is welcome.

    .5% blackberry FA
    1% forest fruit FA
    1% lime tahity distilled FA
    .5% raspberry FA
    Steep time ~2 weeks

    It's enjoyable after two weeks, but it's best after 3 for whatever reason. The original had strawberry, but at best I couldn't taste strawberry, at worst it brought the rest of the juice down.

    Sounds decent, never had a juice at such a low percentage though

    The FA's work great at low %

    FA is alot more concentrated than other flavor mixes. I find I don't have to go over 2% of a flavor on most occasions. It helps cut down on how much I have to buy. That and FA is the best in my opinion.

    It probably works just fine for people who were lucky enough to have their taste buds return ... not mine though.
    There are very few flavorings I can use at such low percentages, no matter who the company is... believe me, I've tried them all, in the last 5 years.
    Just no hope for me I guess... too bad, cause it sounds good.

    You can up the flavor strength, try doubling them see if it helps. What happened with your taste buds if I can ask

    56 years of smoking is what happened :(
    I got very little return of olfactory (smell or taste) senses after I quit.
    I kept hearing how great the improvement was for everyone else who quit, but I gave up looking for improvement after the second year.
    It's not like I don't have any ... just not much compared to others.
    I got so tempted by HIC's recipes, and I tried quite a few, a few years back.
    I kept doubling, and re-doubling but got mostly nothing taste wise, while everyone else was drooling.
    But, I've found a LOT of flavorings that are strong enough to use.

    Example of what I would have to use (solo) to taste caramel:
    CAP 16% ..NF 16-18% ...FA 6-8% ...German 6% ... FW 15% ...so I use the FA, and gave away all the others.
    I also tried and gave away the VZ, HS, IWA, and TFA Caramels... they weren't good at any % to me.
    It's taken a few years, and a lot of wasted $$ to find the flavors I want, and can use.
    I have a limit on how high I will go with the %, so that eliminates a lot.

    On your recipe, I would have to use, .. (levels I use of these flavors to taste them)
    Blackberry 2-3% (different company)
    FA Forest Fruit 6-8%
    FA Lime Tahiti 5%
    Raspberry 4% (different company)
    So, my combo would total 17-20% ... to much for me to try it, but it still sounds good :p
    For me, any of these flavors solo, but combo-ed with a cream or bakery flavor is about as fancy as I get.
    I very seldom combo more that 3 flavors, at the most.

    In order to keep the recipe balanced, instead of raising each individual percent, take the recipe and multiply the total amount of flavoring by 20% or so. see how that works for you. There is an option on ELR for just such a thing if you don't feel like doing the math.

    I have several ways of getting around it that works sometimes
    Like ... I just mix up a fair amount of the flavorings called for in the % called for, (as a base flavor), and then use that as the flavoring for my PG,VG,and Nic.
    It works some times. :rolleyes:
