RE: Sugar Bear
Thanks for the tips! To me, TFA Cinnamon Danish tastes a lot like the Capella one, but maybe a bit sweeter and milder. I found the Capella Cinnamon Danish v2 to be a bit strong on the cinnamon, but I never let it steep long enough to see if it mellowed out. I only had a 10ml test size bottle of the flavor though, and bought a 4oz bottle of the TFA stuff since it was a lot cheaper.

RE: Sugar Bear
I've always been one to try to get to 20% with my flavorings, since that is the general rule I was taught when I first started DIY. Took me a long time to force myself to cut back if it's justified.

My thing is, I require big flavor in whatever I vape. For instance, Raspberry (Sweet) is so pale that I need to practically just add a little VG and nic to the concentrate bottle to get the pop I like. No, I don't actually do that, but you get my drift. When I see recipes that total out at like 10-12% base total, I convince myself they will be too weak, then I usually screw it up by adding more because I demand big flavor. That's not an easy thing to wean yourself from.

Snap TW - took me a long time to wean myself off the 20%. Still have to battle against it now.

RE: Sugar Bear
Vaping max VG means I'm usually hovering at (or near) 20% (especially if they're heavy with TFA, CAP or FW), but there are a few recipes I do as low as 8-9% (with mostly FA or FLV). 
Depends on whose flavorings I'm using.

RE: Sugar Bear
Since I went from 80% VG to 50:50 I feel less need for 20% but it is still a good place to start if you are doing 80:20

RE: Sugar Bear
Personally I like a lighter vape, so a lot of my flavors are probably a little weak for your taste. When I have time I'll post some recipes, I always just write them in terms of total flavor percentage, so the flavorings equal 100% then you can do the math to get it where you want if 10-15% is too weak for you. That's the way my Excel calculator spreadsheet is set up too, so I can easily plug in the desired flavoring percentage and it calculates how much I need of each ingredient based on the flavoring percentages.
