Oh man , i'm hopeless.
Hi everyone,  a question ,  if i have 20 ml of my PG/VG mix in a cup and i add 10 drops of a flavoring,  the percentage would be 10% flavoring correct?

Or , do you break it down like it would only be 10% flavoring if i used 20 drops instead of 20 ml of my PG/VG mix .

Thank you

RE: Oh man , i'm hopeless.
10 drops is around 0.5 ml. so you have 0.5/20.5 which is 2.4% flavour. Depending on the flavour I mix at 20% normally though some flavours work at 2%

Normally, the standard is 20 drops per millilitre

This varies a lot. The only way to be sure is to count drops and measure their volume

Personally, I prefer to use water and a set of scales/a balance that can reliably measure 0.01 or better of a gram. At room temperature water weighs 1 gram per cc. Put 20 drops of water into some sort of container on your balance and weigh them

RE: Oh man , i'm hopeless.
Thanks a lot Don , really appreciate it ,  i always wondered why my tiny 5 ml sample bottles lasted so long , most still look like they are mostly full and i have made tons of juice, seems i have been using much less flavoring than i should.

No wonder my juices taste horrific with no flavor to speak of.
