    Is there a rule of thumb for the max flavour percentage?

    I mixed up a clone last night at 25% flavour concentrate, tasted fine after a shake but seems like a hell of a lot

    25 is quite high. Ours is normally around 10-15%

    It can taste fine for a day or two, but by the third day an intense bitter might overwhelm your juice.
    At least that was my experience.

    Hmm maybe I should mix up a 70/30 VG/PG mix and dilute it

    Here is the recipe, I see it is 23%

    VG works well as a massage oil, but is a poor tanning lotion:anirofl:

    Tried a Gambit clone I had made, steeped for 4 days, initial inhale and exhale were delicious, but as soon as it got some heat and a proper long draw I tasted this wierd chemical flavour and was like wtf! Thought it might be too much of something, checked the recipe and it is a 25% mix, will be diluting that quite a bit.

    Lesson learned!Need to check percentages before making juice!
