Make it your way
Taste is a very subjective thing. Some people like strong flavours while others prefer subtle ones.
Do not be afraid to add more or less than what we advise as you might find it works better for you. This is just to be used as a guide to help you along the way.
Please keep in mind, different brands have different levels of strength. So a strawberry from one brand may only require 3 drops while others may require 5. Just keep that in mind.
Diluting the flavour
For some recipes such as baking, icing or gelatin based recipes, it may be worth pre-diluting the flavour down in a measurement of water that would have been used anyway in the mixture. That way you can check the intensity of the flavour to see if you need a little more or less.
Try a little before making a lot
If you are new to this we would advise not going full throttle. Take a minute, think about what you are trying to achieve. Once we send a flavour out to you, it’s yours and cannot be returned for hygiene reasons. If you’re unsure on a new flavour we recommend the 10ml to start off with. We would not want you to buy a large amount of a cherry flavour, for example, only to find out is more of a natural flavour and you wanted a glacé cherry (the ones you get around Christmas in the syrup).
Expanding the amount
so you have tried it in a small batch and know that 6 drops work in 100ml of water but you need 500ml for what you are trying to achieve.
Simply multiply the amount you need with the drop amount. For example you need the 500ml we mentioned previously and you have tried it in the 100ml. Just times 6 x 5 = 30. So for the 500ml you will need 30 drops of concentrate. Easy!
