    I do 75/25 but yeah, just like you would normally mix. Since there is hardly if at all pg in real flavors it will come out a higher vg mix anyway. I have done all vg before but added distilled water, about 2 to 3% so that it is not crazy thick.

    I want to say Fruit Pebbles I really liked at 3.5%. @fozzy71 is the real flavor guru, I generally like whatever he has to say

    3.5% is where I tested it at, just decided to bump it up a tiny bit last time I mixed. My RF knowledge and flavor stash pales in comparison to some of the people on ELR but I quit following all the RF threads over there as they just caused me to order more flavors and I already have so many that a lot will go bad before I use them up.

    I finally got around to using the sc grape that I got when it was one of the giveaway flavors. Mixed it with the sc soda base, bit at 2.5% and wow is it strong but real tasty. The next day I put it in the Kaees Soloman and it is still strong but settled a bit, sure is tasty, like a sunkist grape soda. Gonna see how it steeps to see if it settles down or if I should drop the % down a little.

    I also tried the butter pecan pie sc tester at 2.5%, been steeping for 2 months now. The flavor is still there, sort of tastes like butterfinger. It is real tasty but seems to be missing something to make it just wow. 2.5% is more than enough flavor and it hasn't faded.

    Sorry to report but in my experience total waste of money.

    I have tried the Baklava and Spiced Apple Cider (Sorry if I got the names wrong) and both are useless at any percentage. :poop::poop:

    I even contacted Real Flavors and was told they would send me a Praline flavor to fix the Baklava.

    Never received said flavor and never heard back from them.

    Again, total waste of money, Nic and PG/VG to mix

    Better to flush you DIY budget down the toilet.

    Much more satisfying IMHO

    I got some on my desk. Haven't vaped it in a few days.... yep still yummy. I pulled 30ml out of the 100ml batch a couple weeks ago, after the discussion in this thread, and have been enjoying it. I think it had just barely steeped a month when I started vaping it.

    Hi all,

    First when I tried some of Real flavors (SC) with 98% VG and 2% flavor using a dripper it was very tasty, but when I tried to use the same patch in a tank it was very week.

    After many tries I found that to have the same flavor with 2% on a dripper you have to increase it to about 8% if you will use a tank !!!!!!!!!

    This happened with me in about 8 different flavors as single or mixes.

    Is this normal ?

    I am a PG allergies, so I will not be able to use any PG components in my liquid

    By the way, I tested it with many different drippers, tanks, rtda, coils & Watt

    Thanks for your help

    Thanks for your feedback, but are you using PG as a percentage of the base ?

    Ok so now it has steeped 34 days. I tried it (fruit pebbles) yesterday. I really like it! Its not a spot-on, crisp, fruity pebbles to me but its really fricken good! Today I took a portion of it and added a little CAP-Cereal27, and FA-Meringue. Sooooo goood.

    I promptly made 120 MLs today to enjoy after the new year. I will definitely be eyeing up Real Flavor SCs in the future. Call me pleasantly surprised :). Thanks for helping me get squared away @fozzy71 .

    yeah, they have some real good flavors IMO. Not always spot on but many are quite vapeable standalone and can work well in recipes. Just make sure you check the flavor notes on ELR or search their forums when thinking about ordering flavors if you can't find info about a flavor here. I have 60 - 70 of their flavors so far and have quite a few more on my wish list to try but I am trying to hold off on ordering more flavors until I use up some of what I have already and need to restock a flavor or three.

    Real Flavors has the worst customer service. They Delete any comments saying anything bad about them on their facebook. The reviews for them both on facebook and their website are fake. They take weeks and week to ship stuff out. I sent them a question weeks ago and still not heard anything back. They won't be stealing my money again.

    I have a friend that has been looking for a good pebbles flavor. What percentages did you use for RF Pebbles, CAP Cereal 27 and FA Meringue?

    I never had those issues but I haven't ordered from them in a while. Their owner used to be active over on the ELR forums so you may want to try and PM him over there or post in the RF thread. I don't frequent that forum any longer so I can't be sure if he still posts there regularly.

    I'm sorry, I didn't see this. I added 1% of each. I wouldn't describe it as a true pebbles flavor tho. But it is a pretty delightful flavor all by itself.

    Pro tip: If you have a bit of duct tape, you can get the cat to help you mix...

    This was several months ago that I contacted them and before I started DIY. The strange thing is that I received an email from them asking if I received a response. When I said no, I was expecting to hear soon but never did.

    Thanks — no worries as I have been busy and caught up in the holidays.

    Happy New Year to all — be safe.

    I've ordered a large portion of their range, and haven't really found anything special. In terms of "new" flavor vendors, I've gotten more enjoyment out of the WF flavors I've tried (which is most of them).

    Ya, I didn't have the best experience either. I placed a large order directly from them but wasn't able to check the package right away. A couple weeks had passed, and when I finally had the chance I found that a flavor was missing. When I contacted them, they simply said that too much time had passed and there was nothing they could do. Rather disappointing.
