Another question, is it normal for the liquid to turn brown? Im using a homemade 80pg mix 6mg nic with 6% Sucralose sweetener, clear when filled and after 5mins of Vaping starting to turn brown, is this just caramelisation?

yes, in most cases the e-liquid in a genny tank will darken as you go - very likely is just caramelising where exposed to heat of the coil.

The juice in all my gennys is VERY brown by the time the tank is almost empty. I find that it's best to turn the  genny wick side up prior to refilling and dry burning till the coil is glowing evenly red again. When you do this you burn off all the crud that builds up and can tune up the coil with a nudge here or there if needed. I then refill and all is well :)

congrats. were you able to suss out what you changed from your earlier attempts to sort it out?
 or was it a case of repetition "building muscle memory" until ...er... it automatically emerged as "what seemed the right thing to do" ?

(relax. with gennies, I find I sometimes cannot explain why a particular build works better than another...)

Now: be prepared for increased ejuice consumption... xD
(yeah, I find mesh-driven coils vaporise ejuice more efficiently)

Just repetition really, its not a perfect build but it is certainly working 100% better than any previous attempts. i couldn't get a microcoil and cotton build to wick well enough no matter how i placed the cotton wick, even with a higher pg liquid. I wonder if the threaded wick hole is maybe slightly smaller than the authentic kraken therefore the swelling of the cotton is causing an issue there. Now ive got my mesh stocks replenished i don't see the necessity to use cotton for the time being while im learning how to build on a genny, KISS i guess!

dusted off my kraken tonight and popped a 2mm ss rooe with 325 mesh 5 wrap 28g getting a great vape but having an issue with juice getting on the air hole and gurgling. Is this due to tipping too far while taking a hit, over wicking or spit back?

hm, with genesis atomisers, that only happens to me if I'm lying down watching the telly,etc.
Try sitting up  when you vape ? (lol) ... or turn the wick to the opposite side if single coil. Alternatively, if using dual coils, rotate atomiser so neither wick is at the bottom when tilted, i.e.both equidistant from the bottom .

(ps. i'm not sure of the cause of gurgling, other than the wick already being well-saturated, and the tilting allowing excess ejuice in the chamber to collect around the airhole - which i only experience when vaping while lying down on the couch...)

Dammit i like being a slob!  :dance

I must have rebuilt my kraken atleast 20 times now getting closer to a decent setup tho it's definitely the toughest attomiser to master thats for sure.
