No recipe. Straight capella caramel cappuccino.

Hmm, I didn't realize they had a Caramel Cappuccino. I might have to try that.

Its hard enough finding it at all without looking for pure stuff to dissolve in PG. The stuff I'm seeing is already dissolved in PG


Quote:Ethyl Maltol Sweetener. Candy Floss, Cloud Chaser 10% PG Base. Vape E Liquid

Ill keep looking for the stuff that burns metal if you spill it

HOW MUCH !

It's very good but very strong, so literally I pretty much add 1ml per 30ml of VG. I also put in about 2ml of menthol and it's kind of like a caramel Irish cream coffee thingy. Fun.

Quote:FlavourArt flavorings do not contain sugars, proteins, genetically modified ingredients, animal products, preservatives, sweeteners, or colors. FlavourArt flavorings are gluten- and peanut-free, and they are great for diabetics, vegetarians, and vegans. FlavorArt uses only the safest formulas in their concentrated flavorings.

But then they say this;


Quote:FlavourArt flavors are very authentic, which means that you may need to keep some sweetener on hand to make the most of your e-liquid.
It don't contain any, but you have to add it?

So are people adding sweetener to the mix if its bitter? I then go look up this special stuff only to find its normal tea/coffee stuff like Sucralose.

Sweetener (Sucralose) Liquid Concentrate


Quote:USA ad
Find your flavor too bitter? Add a drop of Sweetener. Sweetener is the ideal solution to many novices' DIY e-liquid recipes, so be sure to keep some around. NOTE: contains Sucralose


Should I rush out and buy some


Sweetener can surpess undesired notes in a flavour, not only bitterness but also peely, astringent, unripe, harshness, etc. It also can help to bring out fruit flavours more prominent, as all fruits contain Fructose but flavour does not. So it can help to come a bit closer to the real thing.

I'd put nothing else than ethyl maltol into a flavour, no cyclamat, sucralose, no aspartam, etc. The only of these intense sweeteners which is still in the acceptable range for vaping is stevia, IMO.

Ethyl Maltol has a maximum concentration of around 10 % in a PG solution. It has a candylike sweetness taste.

I hope I am not spoiling your nerves.

RE: Sweetener
AAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH a few drops, a few grammes dont anybody use a measurement these days.. Ive read now a 1/4 teaspoon per 10ml of PG and so measured it.


Quote:Ethyl Maltol Crystals once diluted, are used to sweeten and enhance your Eliquids. These are supplied in a 12g bag (equiv to a 10ml Capacity Bottle)
So looking at £4.20 for 12g measured 5 x 1/2 teaspoon at 11.9g (Sugar) and so thats 10 x 10ml bottle mix or enough for 100ml yes?

So considering Sugar isn't the same weight, its looking like 1.1g per 10ml PG

I know this is old and dead, but I knew I said this somewhere and had to come back and clarify. The Caramel Cappuccino concentrate I have is not a Capella. It is a Heartland Vapes house blend. In the grand scheme, does this matter? Nah, but I felt compelled to clarify some misinformation.
