Tips on Flavour Levels
It is certainly not always true, but often most flavours from a manufacturer will need mixing at similar strengths. So, for example, if you liked one Capella flavour at 10% (which is fairly low), it would probably be a good idea to mix test batches of other Capella flavours at around 10%.
Use your sense of smell. Generally, if a flavour smells very strong it will need a low percentage in the mix – and vice versa.
Flavours react very differently as they steep. Capella concentrates usually steep well and get stronger/better. Others can be stronger when first mix and then fade a little. Generally, fruit flavours can be more prone to fading, whereas rich, creamy flavours often get stronger. For this reason we recommend getting somewhere close to your flavour preference with a test mix and then leaving it to steep for a while before fine tuning.
If you have one flavour you like at 5% and another at 10% you can dilute the the 5% flavour with PG (1 part concentrate to one part PG) to make them similar strengths before mixing them together. Likewise, if you are regularly blending a flavour that works well at 2%, you couls premix it 4/1 with PG so you have a concentrate you can work with at 10%.
If you are making a higher VG liquid, bear in mind that VG isn’t as good at carrying flavour as PG so flavours can seem ‘muted’. For this reason you may need more flavour in a high VG mix.
It is much easier to rescue a mix that is under-flavoured than one that is over-flavoured!
Make notes on, label and date every test batch. There is nothing more frustrating than spending hours perfecting the ultimate flavour and then not being able to recreate it.
