Keeping notes is very important to your recipe development. I know some may say they keep all the info in their head, but once you get up to 600 flavorings, with multiple batches steeping, all different dates, and all different concentrations, it’s hard to keep track of all that without writing something down. In the video above I talk about how important it is to make sure you are using the note taking features of Alltheflavors / ELR / and Ejuice Me Up, or any eliquid calculator that you use (a good e-liquid calculator gives you good note taking features).
The second part of the video I talk about how keeping your clone recipe attempts simple, is the best way to go about mixing. If you think about it, if you are an e-liquid developer, you want to create the best flavor, with the least amount of flavorings possible, in order to increase profit margins. You need to think that way when going about clones. One of the examples I give, is my new Killa Kustard v1 recipe. It’s a simple two ingredient recipe, with one enhancer, and it’s the closest I’ve gotten to Killa Kustard, period. Before I was thinking too complex, and stripping the recipe down to its core has gotten me on the right track. So keep your clone recipes simple, and be sure to keep track of your progress and you’ll be good to go.
