    well, i needed some vg n pg to mix some cdb crystals in.
    after i ordered, it occured to me that this would be a good time to try unflavored juice.
    so i got 100mg/ml pur nic.

    then i went crazy at cappella.
    i got
    peaches n cream

    peaches n cream v2.
    juicy peach

    peppermint

    double apple

    caramel
    butter cream
    blueberry.

    the important tests are peppermint n peach.

    does 20% flavor sound ok?
    i don't wanna bother starting low because i haven't tasted what you guys taste in the 5 months i've been vaping.
    steeping necessary?

    any of the others sound good alone?
    i've seen recipes with a dozen ingedients by 6 different makers.
    i don't wanna do that.
    if peach or mint works. i'll start ordering this stuff by the gallon.

    please give me your thots.
    thanks.

    100mg nic is actually 10% pure nic.
    But anything much over 100 mg is pretty hazardous to work with and pure nic is lab work stuff, protective gear, masks, etc.
    CAP tends to be between 10-20%.
    I would not recommend starting above 15% though.

    I have tried the Double Apple and Juicy peach.
    Both good but not really stand alone.
    I used the double apple with the V1 CAP Apple Pie with a bit of CAP Vanilla whipped cream.
    I forget what I used the Peach in but it is good. Maybe some in with some CAP V1 Vanilla Custard?

    I think I have Peaches and cream but not tried it.
    I think I tired the caramel and it was fine. I do know that I have some of it.

    I have pretty much been in a rut just vaping Cromwells Custard for a long time but have about 100 flavors in the freezer still :)

    Not with fruit I would think, but prolly ok with caramel.
    Might make it a kind of buttery caramel.

    You are just starting down the rabbit hole.
    Takes a while.

    Butter cream goes good with strawberry or blueberry.

    I have a couple of ideas for you:

    Blueberry mint, about 4 parts blueberry to 1 part peppermint, but I would not bump these two to 20%. I don't mix at low percentages, either. I would mix the blueberry at no more than 8% with 2% peppermint. I think you'll get a pretty bold juice at that level. 3% peppermint might be ok.

    Caramel apple cream, I'd mix the caramel (4%), the double apple (4%), and the butter cream (6%). You want to be careful going too heavy on any caramel, and in ELR notes people say that the butter cream will morph into buttered popcorn if you are too generous with it.

    You could also mix the peppermint with the butter cream, turn it into a butter mint. Maybe 4% peppermint and 6% butter cream.

    The blueberry mint should be basically shake & vape. The creams may need a few days to steep, I'd think maybe 4-5 days.
