This sounds like a reasonable amount! I was genuinely a little worried. Glad to hear it was just using the wrong unit of measurement.
LOL yea that could have been really bad! I am weary of using additives in general but i used roughly 3% and even smaller amount of salt which i maybe could use a little more? I also read somewhere that if you let it sit for a week the sodium carbonate "mellows" out a bit more but not sure how true that is.

So I was able to do a bunch without the alkalinizing salts. with no real nicotine hit. It was pretty pleasant but didn't have that nic hit like the commercial stuff Sodium carbonate definitely helped and I feel the salt really help to juice up my nose which I feel is a little bit of an annoying after effect but at the same time one of the reasons why I use it.

I think salt is like cooking, add what makes it right to you. I have used up to 8% salt and up to 7% sodium carbonate. Fresh 7% carbonate burns like hellfire, after a week the burn has gone away and that oh-so-fresh ammonia smell is present. This however seems tied to having some moisture in the snuff for it to do whatever magic it does. My dry snuff recipes ran 6% sodium carbonate and they are a bit sharp in the nose after a couple of months. I actually went back and made batches of the dry snuff without the sodium carbonate and mixed them with the original batches. If I were to make dry snuff again I would run 3-4% of the carbonate which is what I cut them down to.
