Great info! Thanks!
Well guys and gals, I am leaving soon. I wanted to let you know that I have really enjoyed my time on here meeting all of you.
Doc, setting aside the effectiveness of saline, should vaporising an e-liquid containing saline suspend the particles in the vapour or leave it on the coil?
Vaping is (contributing to) drying out my nose. I could use a saline nasal spray, but the idea of using the vapour for the remedy appeals to me.
Great Info, thank you
I tried it a couple of years ago. It wasn't kind to my coils - stick to the nasal spray imo!
Thank you good to know
Will you and Ol'DocPorter be returning? Is there somewhere we can follow your informative studies?
wow thanks for this post this has been extremely entertaining and educational the best of both worlds almost like bill niye the science guy
Very good info. Thank you!
Thank you for the time put into this list! More than I need to wrap my head around at this point but will definitely come back in a month or two.
I'm no scientist, but I have diy'ed for a little while. I've found Acetyl Pyrazine quite useful. I have not yet found a reason to mix in Trimethyl in any of my mixes. Horrid stuff. Suffice it to say, I don't consider them similar when it comes to flavor. I would love to hear success stories using that molecule.

If you really suck at diy, and your juice tastes
like an abortion, you need this stuff
Abortion flavored ejuice.. I'm on it!
Also thank you for this, it's extremely helpful!
Flavourart's AAA Magic Mask. Reduce the acid perception without modifying the pH. pH is one of the key factors involved in food stability. In order to reduce the pH, a small amount of organic acid must be added to the food preparation (i.e. citric, malic, tartaric acid). In most cases the addition of food acid is beneficial both for microbiological stability and taste ( just think to an lemon or cola drink, they must be acid to be good ). However, some other foods might require food acid for microbiological safety BUT the acid taste does not complement well ( a light cheese, a sauce as example ). In this cases, the use of Magic Mask can be of help. Magic Mask does not buffer the pH, nor alter it. Magic Mask acts at the tongue receptors level, temporarily reducing the acid perception, thus improving the overall mouth feel. Its action last 5-8 seconds and involve only the acid receptors. Recommended dosage is 1 up to 3 grams for Kg food. When comparing products with and without Magic Mask, the food with Magic Mask must be tasted as second.
wow, very helpful, thank you, dear Karebear
*Drops to knees in absolute joy* Thank you so much for posting this info. It has saved me time from having to write all my own notes on all of these. I couldn't thank you both enough @Karebear and @Ol'DocPorter .
I know that they are very close (besides the fact that one costs 3 times as much as the other) but still what's the difference? Why would I choose one over the other?
This is awesome! Thank you so much for your hard work in this! Definitely will help me make some educated decisions on my future flavor orders!
So my "toasted marshmallow" is really just regular marshmallow with 4-Methyl Guaiacol added?
Great information, thank you
Ive read it all,
But it seem there isn't the one who tell what the different between sorbitol and sucralose as sweetener, which one better?
Thanks for answet.
Great notes guys. There's been a few interesting enhancers coming from Nude Nicotine:
Monk Fruit Extract Solutions
Tartaric Acid Solutions
It'd be awesome if someone can provide some notes on each (e.g their purpose, recommended starting percentages, when to use one over the other, etc.).
Since I'm new to diy, I hadn't heard of some of them. So I checked the Nude Nic website to see what info they had for each of those. They had lots of great info about each one, including percentage recommendations and how they effect eliquid.
I haven't tried them, but here's a basic breakdown.
Erythriotol solution, Stevia solution, & Monk Fruit Extract solution
Ascorbic acid, Citric Acid, and Tartaric Acid
I will have to try the sweeteners, they are an alternative to sucralose without gunking coils (according to nude nic website). Also, I don't like the aftertaste of sucralose. I've considered picking up stevia. I've read that it can be used in place of sucralose, but it can add a flavor to eliquid in higher concentrations. But like everything else in diy, taste is subjective.
Hope this helps. I'll post more about the differences between the sweeteners after I get them in and try them. As far as sour/tart, I use FA sour wizard, and I'm happy with the results. So no need to experiment with the others.
can you give a little more info on this or maybe the proper coils to use. cause I don't like the sounds of it, i know my melo 300 is using kanthol coils and my big baby tank has nickel and even my rda has kanthol and I just finished 10 ml batch of sour apple using tfa sour, plus i just made 15 ml of it today.
THANK YOU! I have searched google over and over the last few days looking for this exact list. I've been searching for more than just the basic info on the most used or common enhancers. Thank you for taking the time to create and post this for us newbies!
Thanks, great job! Very useful
