Be careful with Peach it can be quite fiery - Mango is the same - I still have to find good ones.
Excellent advice. Those two translate to very strong bases so start slow and work up. Most stone fruits are also very powerful.
I was also looking at plum.  I hope peach will work as a lower percentage of the mix.  Thanks for the advice in advance, otherwise I would have put peach in a higher percentage.

Plum would come in the same category - trust what TW says - his information and judgement is always sound.

That's nice of you to say. My info and judgement only comes from personal experience. Always remember YMMV.

About 4-5g of menthol crystals will dissolve in 10ml of warm/hot PG. Remember that the boiling point of PG is way higher than water (188.2C (370F)). Be careful with it...

Then dilute it some. Say to 30ml.

Then 1 drop per 10ml should be enough or more than enough.

What I did was heat 10ml of PG in a (glass) shot glass in the microwave. If I remember 20 seconds was plenty. Put the crystals into a 30ml bottle and poured the hot PG onto them. Closed the bottle and shook it like crazy. Squidgy plastic bottles will take microwaving - hard plastic ones won't.

I'm far from emptying the menthol liquid base so I probably won't need to look into this for a long time, but it is always nice to have guidance posted here.

I've got about a million menthol crystals sent to me by one 18sixfifty, if you get to the point you want some I can send some your way, should be able to fit a lifetime supply in a padded envelope.

RE: What have you got on order ?
I have used less than 100 milligrams of menthol crystals in 2 years...

A lifetime supply for me weighs less than a paperclip.

RE: What have you got on order ?
Thanks again Don for the great advice.  I read up on crystals last night.  Glad I bought separate PG and VG.  I get the feeling .25 oz will last a long time.

I now have 2x Samsung 25Rs on the way.  I'm going from no batteries, to a decent collect.

I have a Wismec Reuleaux 75W mod on order. FT say it will ship in a week. I'll believe that when it happens...

Maybe in real life.  Just the thought of vaping animal products makes me queasy.

I have another IPV5 coming as part of an exchange.  Cursed.  I tell you I'm cursed.
