Dont do full bottes. Get some very accurate small scales and some eyedropers and work out whats nice before making somethig you may end up re running :puke-huge: (especially with an air still?). You will need the scales if you want to do herbs for gins n stuff anyways.

Most of the flavour bottes will do more than the amount listed comfortably, some need more flavouring added, depends on your tastes. Try different amonts of glucose to get the thickness right.

Mrs likes the rocky road & turksh delight type of things now and then... ill work on a propper trurkish delight with rose water eventually, but I think rocky road can wait lols

Thats a top idea mate, cheers.

No need to waste time and product on crap flavouring.
