    Nice, thanks! That makes sense. I think DIY-in' might be inevitable.

    No prob, welcome to VF.

    Vapingzone and Smoke Revolt have good flavor extracts and the last time I got premix it was from vapingzone and I got 50/50 12mg ( I think they call it unflavored e liquid your way? ) so its really easy to start diy that way.. later on down the road u can save even more money by mixing your own pg/ vg and nic. I usually mix up 10mls at a time. All u need r empty bottles. Put 20-30drops of extract of your choice in the bottle fill it the rest of the way with the premix, shake and your ready to vape. Easy as pie..
    if you want it a little stronger just add a little flavoring or if its too flavorfull add a little more premix be sure to leave a little room in the bottle to adjust intil you figure out how you like it.

    You can sweeten with a variety of things. I use ethyl maltol but I've also heard of people using extracted stevia. None will be exactly comparable to sugar but that is a drawback... considering you can't actually use sugar. VG also has an inherent sweetness to it without additional flavoring so it might also be a good idea to have a high VG base.

    Just try it, many folks use it and like it.
    I prefer a criticism even if sharp from a single intelligent man to the ill-considered approval of the great masses.

    And lots of folks use EM too. Personally, I wouldn't care for just adding more sweet flavor - you want the flavor and the sweetness at your custom level. Besides - I'm betting many sweet flavors have sweetener - so what's the point of using them to avoid it?

    In any case, that's just my take. It's all subjective

    Pros - It's sweeter

    Cons - It tastes bad

    Just got it today, It tastes like a protein bar. Can't tell if some of the bad taste is from the sweetener, or if it's the juice flavor though.

    If that's your reaction to sarcasm on this forum, you'll be hoping everyone dies of brain cancer before it's over with.
