    Something that I neglected to mention about that first month - I had finally put together something that I was truly happy with and decided to make a larger batch of (100ml).

    Worked the batch up, slapped it in to a tank a couple of days later (it was predominantly a fruit Vape, so it should have been fine) and..... Nothing.

    Bland as hell.

    Thinking I had screwed something up in my calculations I boosted all the flavours.

    Still nothing.

    At a total loss, it was off to the internet to try and work out what had happened.

    And that was how I discovered one of the greatest secrets of Vaping, something that never seems to be mentioned before the fact - the dreaded vapers tongue!

    Yep i went through this as well, :)
    i find if i chain vape a single flavor and drink to much coffee (which is often :p)
    i still get it.
    so now i make sure i have at least 3 different flavors made up at a time and switch between them often to avoid it

    Haven't had it since - swap flavours all the time, and if I start to get that weird feeling that flavour is dropping (sometimes with a faint metallic vibe to it) that juice gets shelved for a while regardless of what progress I may have been making on it.

    Actually starting to get that vibe with one today (have been hitting it hard for the last 2 weeks because it is "almost there") so time to rest that one and work on something different.

    I remember why I dont get it anymore - over a year ago some wise one here said to use month wash - I do that daily and its second nature now - forgot the reason I started it was to avoid vapers tongue. I am sure switching flavours works too :)

    Oh man, I was a DIY adonis. The first mix I ever made caused angels to cry tears of utter joy.

    Seriously though - it was utterly horrible the first week or so.

    I ordered concentrates from MBV in an attempt to make an Alabama Slammer style cocktail flavour and botched it completely.
    Far too much flavour (I was hitting the 35% mark), overpowering with amaretto, and generally just horrible. It truly was the definition of arsejuice.
    I still have the notes in my little black book to remind me of exactly how far my DIY has come......
