    Does anyone have any advice for a spearmint ejuice? I've tried pretty much every recipe online i could find and not a single one tastes remotely good or like the notes say it should. i've tried TFA/FAx2/CAP spearmints at every percentage between 1%-20% at 50/50 and 70/30 VG/PG, and the best so far is Flavour Art White Winter @ 5% but only if i add a percentage or two of Flavour Art Vanilla Classic. The TFA and CAP extracts just taste bad and I don't see a use for them but FAWW seems like it has potential with decent flavor it just has no body to it at all and increasing the percentage just seems to increase how intense it hits, it definitely doesn't help the flavor pop. I'm probably on my 50th+ attempt and would appreciate any feedback! Thanks!

    I've been looking at mint recipes for a while and it seems adding some cream, marshmallow or Meringue might help give it some body that you're looking for.
    Here's one I might make in the future. [​IMG]

    Not exactly spearmint, but I always liked FW Creme de Menthe.

    Here, try my version. One note may be difficult to find though as it's a local mint; Buchu. (And there's only one stockist here!)

    Back story: I discovered the mix when an elderly family friend that wanted try vaping (from smoking menthol cigs) asked my daughter if I could knock up a 'menthol' vape. (yeah, right)

    I explained that menthol per se is more an ambience than a flavour as such, so I knocked out a pretty simple mint mix to liven up the menthol backend.

    Although over the last two years I've tried most of the dozen or so various 'mints' available here, this simple iteration turned out to be the tastiest and it's all he vapes now. I've also found that this mix can handle up to 24mg nic (for the -previously heavy- smokers) without any bother.

    I mix up about a litre most months, (for the fans refills) then add the nic per user as required.

    Try it yourself and see.

    Cool Spearmint - Zero Nic 30ml batch

    VG 21.0ml
    PG 5.0ml
    Spearmint 2.0ml
    Peppermint 1.0ml
    Buchu 1.0ml
    Menthol 0.6ml
    Sucra 0.3ml

    I'm lurking here. I'm new to diy juice and I made a very simple one last week. I'm actually enjoying it. Without proper steeping times and knowing you're way past my mixing, I've just gotta watch this thread. Spearmint is one of my favorite mints! :)

    Lurk away dear, we're all family here.

    So, if you're on a spearmint roll, try this simple little mix, not mine but a friend's.

    We all found it quite entertaining, (and I'm not really a mintaholic).

    It's pretty much shake 'n vape but fully matured in a few days once the two mints fuse.

    The mixer; Mr 'T' called it Boreal Imperial.

    PG dilutant 18%
    VG dilutant 70.00
    Total base 88

    Koolada 10% (TPA) 1.00
    Peppermint (CAP) 6.00
    Spearmint (Natural) (FW) 2.00
    Sweetener (Sucra/Ethyl) (TPA) 3.00
    Totals 100

    Thank you so much! I haven't tried it with Peppermint! I'm going to make some of this over the weekend! Looks delish! I had just used my spearmint and koolada for a mint flavor to have. I'd have to read my notes on the sweetener. (Can't remember!)
    Thank you again! :)
    Yes, I agree we're all family here and love this community!
