Private Recipe Sneak Peek (WIPs) Part 1


#852

Oddly enough after 4 week steeps of lemon mf and inw I’m finding that I want to cut back. Still testing. Lol.


#853

Which of the 2 or both? I haven’t tried Lemon INW so I’m not sure how it is, But I’ve spent quite some time with Lemon MF and I’ve learned to measure this one in drops (as in 1 or 2 drops per 15-30 mls of finished juice). The MF IMO is a “upsteeper”, meaning it gets stronger with a good steep. It can also get too much zest at higher %s.


#854

what is the highest percent you have used MF ?? i believe ive went to .33 pct ive found it performs well at .25 pct but am wanting to test in a recipe at .5


#855

if i remember correctly you started at apprx 1pct with mf ??


#856

I think I started testing the Lemon MF around .5% and quickly found it to too much for my taste. I have a rule for certain MF extracts and it’s 1 or 2 drops per 15-30 mls of finished juice. Once I’ve tested the mix I can gauge if I need more, but I have ruined quite a few mixes with over flavoring.


#857

That could be on my business cards.


#858

I’m finding both to be too strong. Both I have been mixed with lemon Sicily fa. And one with lemon meringue cap.

Lemon mf I’m down to 0.15% and lemon inw (not shisha) down to 1%. Both of which at higher percents the lemon note was stringent and lingering. More so on inw. All of which is me screwing around with dinner lady concept recipes.


#859

Yeah, Lemon (MF) is one that im going to test in a 10% PG dilution and then using it around .25%. The highest that i have gone with Lemon (MF) is .15% in a mix and at 1.5 months it overpowered the mix.

I could drop out the Lemon Sicily entirely in this mix and it might still be too much lemon.


#860

From my findings with Lemon MF extracts 1 drop averages .03%… good enough for some palates mixed at 15mls. When combined with other Lemons, 2 drops should be more than enough. Give it a shot and let us know what you think.


#861

Yeah I am an odd ball with fruits. I really like them super far forward. Some find it icky. Lol don’t get me started.

Either way…I got in kiwi inw. I’m not sure it was you or @Ken_O_Where that I got turned onto kiwi fa and I still love kiwi mf…but I must say kiwi inw may be my replacement for kiwi mf. I still need to vape one more 15 ml bottle 4 weeks from now but it’s very promising for an authentic but sweet kiwi when mixed with fa and tpa.


#862

Maybe it was @Ken_O_Where. That’s a flavor I’ve tried, but haven’t figured out.


#863

Kiwi for me has been best simple. I’ve tried twisting it with brown sugar and butter. Tried sliding it in with cookie. Nope.

Just a simple light mallow fa and a dash of light cream like whipped cream cap or fa or simple cream fresh fa (0.25%) to discover the nuances of the green, white, and brown of a kiwi. Mf adds all the natural and brown notes.


#864

Thanks for the tidbits… these tips really helps. I’ll give it another go.


#865

@Ken_O_Where you have given me so, so much advice that if I’m at ELR for the next 20yrs I’d still owe you. But if I could offer just one replacement to CCI it would be Frosting FLV. This flavor is really the best IMO when it comes to icing/frostings. Creamy/Powdered Sugar. Yep… they both offset each other, but that’s what I get from it. It’s just super in dessert mixes.


#866

I’m shooting for a super sweet creamy base to be used in mixes like twinkies and cream puffs. I’m not sure how this will turn out, just hope it works.


#867

Im surprised Inawera Lemon doesnt get mentioned more often as it seems to me the perfect lemon to put into bakery recipes as it has a lemon curd like lemon taste to me. I also really like there lemon mix concentrate as well, a really sharp punchy lemonade like flavour. Never tried MF lemon but the Inawera ones for me I much prefer over flavour arts and jungle flavours lemon flavourings that I have tried.


#868

Made this for my son because he loves strong lemon and blueberry


#869

I havent mixed this yet, but I was thinking about adding a little spice by dropping a cleaned and dried chili pepper in it overnight. I’ve read that someone used a cinnamon stick like that. Anyone try this kind of technique?


#870

Not me, but it sounds exciting! Do it! Do it! :tada::tada::tada::tada:


#871

ya im not a huge fan of FA but if its all a person can get it will work , i havent tried the Jungle but did try FE and because it reminded me of a lemonade i stayed away for me i try to avoid the lemonade tasting lemons , if you do have thw chance to try MF id highly suggest it , especially if your a lemon fan
