OMG, you guys (starting a new thread cuz the blueberry one was long ENOUGH! ) - it was my BASE!! (For context, I've been mixing my own juice for ~3 years without buying anything store-bought, and I had some store juice recently that made me realize my DIY was CRAP, but I wasn't sure why) I bought 6 bottles of premixed 30-70(VG) base from Inawera (5 bottles of 0mg, 1 bottle of 6mg to make 600ml of 1mg base), and EVERYTHING I mix tastes SO MUCH BETTER, even RIGHT out of the freshly mixed bottle!! I still haven't been patient enough to FULLY "steep" anything (for more than 3 days), but this stuff is SO MUCH MORE GOOD, AND it's not gunking up my coils OR cotton! I'm attaching pictures of the base I've been using and one of the 0mg bottles from Inawera - I thought they both were ED, but I guess the PG isn't - to be VERY clear, the flavor comes through 100% better with the Inawera base, and the juice tastes better RIGHT AWAY than my old juices ever did after a WEEK of sitting... Has anyone used ED and NOT had this problem? What's different about the Inawera base (it's also got the nicotine already IN it, but since I'm only vaping ONE mg/ml, I didn't think that would make THAT much difference)?
