- This is a flavour concentrate which is to be diluted in Vegetable Glycerine and Propylene Glycol respectively. Do not use this product in its undiluted state.
- We procure concentrates in bulk directly from the manufacturer in Ireland and store these in our state of the art ISO 7 laboratory based in Ballito South Africa.
- There can be noticeable colour variations between batches of the same flavour. This is no cause for concern as it is a natural result of the flavour manufacturing process.
The concentrated flavours on sale are provided by local and international flavour companies engaged in the sale of flavour concentrates for many years. There are 100’s of food grade flavours but the flavours we sell have specifically been found to be excellent in E-liquid applications and our range expands constantly while new flavours are being developed and tested.
All concentrated flavours are water-soluble and in Propylene Glycol (PG) or distilled water depending on flavour type and contains no Diacetyl, Acetoin, Acetyl, Propionyl, 2-3 Hexanedione, 2-3 Heptanedione, or Diacetyl Trimmer which are often used as Diacetyl equivalents. All flavours are food grade.
All flavours are free of toxic ingredients, comply with FAO/WHO directives and manufactured under strict sanitary conditions. We hold a Certificate Of Analysis for each flavour and this is available upon request as a PDF file, also all our products come with appropriate labeling. No responsibility can be accepted for any consequences of its use or misuse.
When crafting a recipe, it is advisable to start with 5% of the total volume being mixed, especially for fruity flavours.
It is advisable to start with 2-5% for minty, menthol and tobacco flavours. However, some flavours are stronger then others and are also influenced by the device being used, e.g. sub-ohm devices operate at higher temperatures then POD devices, therefore, sub-ohm typically require less flavour concentrates then POD devices which may require percentages as much as 13% of the total volume prepared.
E-liquids contain Propylene Glycol (PG), Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Flavour Concentrates, Distilled Water and optional Liquid Nicotine.
PG/VG Ratios of mixing and other variables can be set using/downloading DIY calculators from the web, we recommend starting with 0% nicotine for flavour testing, adding desired flavour and nicotine using these calculators.
A PG/VG Ratio of 50/50 is recommended for POD devices whilst 60/40 or 70/30 is recommended for sub-ohm devices. PG acts as the flavour carrier whilst VG is responsible for the vapour production, the higher the PG level, the less flavour concentrate percentages will be required.
Steeping is the process of letting the E-liquid rest for a period of time to improve the flavour of the juice. This is very much like letting good wine age. There are numerous ways to steep and everyone has a different way of doing it. Though two things are required for proper steeping: patience and experimentation. E-liquid is a mixture of ingredients, when freshly made or stored on shelf for an extended period of time, the denser component may separate and sink to the bottom. When shaking the bottle during steeping, you are homogenizing the mixture. Steeping times can be accelerated by E-liquid hot baths or an Ultrasonic cleaner with heat function.
When to steep?
Steeping aims to improve the flavour of your juice. If you already love the E-liquid as is after mixing, then there is no need to steep, you can begin vaping immediately. However, steeping tends to change the flavour of the juice for the better, so if the flavour is not quite to your liking or you are curious how your juice may change after steeping, experiment a little can improve the flavour of your juice.
