Thanks for the replies, guys Strawberry Milkshake! I was wondering about that alreadyl along the lines of: what the heck is difference between that and S&C when you'e vaping it? Answer: zero difference. Thanks
@Cutlass92 I rarely even trouble taste my juices until they've steeped for two weeks, seeing as most of the flavours that I use need a really long steep, Two weeks is too soon, as a rule, but, weelll, after seeing other people's tasting notes, I kinda felt I ought to majke some effort to check on the progress. However, i recently found out (from this site) that some flavours will burst into life after a few days , and then go flat within a few more days. (RF lemon cake, for example) like you said. I'm not intersted in working with those flavours! But the FM Strawberry definitely isn't one of them, as you'll see:
I mixed up a batch of the Flavormonks strawberry @12 % back in December. That's 2% higher than the manufacturer's recommended, but I'd already tried lower percentages and found it a bit on the weak side. I also put in 10% distilled water , 1% saline and the rest was VG. This worked out great, and six months later, that batch is still holding it's fl;avour nicely. So that one definitely doesn't go flat
At the same time, I mixed the Strawbwerries and cream, to the exact same recipe, but with 3% of the VG replaced with Real Flavors Cream (VG) . Note that 's not the super concentrate , but the old .RF. I still have a bit of that batch left and it never , ever developed much flavour, so far as I can tell....unless I missed the flavour by by delaying first tasting too long.
Oh ! @ringling that 3% is only slightly different from the recommended % of cream on this site (average 2.8%) , so it seems unlikely that I added too much cream. Could it be that the cream reacts with the strawberry to create one of those annoyingly volatile flavours? That seems all-too-likely to me
If so, I'd stil;l like to find a combo that isn't so volatile. Maybe different RC creams (RC do a few different cream flavours , don't they? ) , different creams from other manufacturers , and/or different strawbery flavours. But it looks like a few of them, suffer the same flaw, Unsurprisingly, because they ought to be pretty much the same chemically, oughn't they?
