I am a her, last time I checked lol…
Ok… with what you have here, if you’d like my opinion. if not, just ignore me.
I do not have anything of Walts… so I can not comment on that part…
MF I do have a lot! of experience with it; however the flavors that I want to shed some incite to are the flv’s, as usual!
I will insert spiel here: try flavors always! as solos, from smallest by using, yes drops. 1 drop = .02 g/.02ml in 10ml bottles at first. Mark where you can taste the flavor in particular, mark again where you really enjoy the flavor at, and then look for where that flavor will do 3 things: mute out, chem trail out, or it becomes so obnoxious to you you can not stand it. I suggest for you to do this every 3 months as your body does change and that makes your flavors change too.
On to the FLV flavors you have used:
Beer Nuts… is super incredibly wonderful, used the right way. I rarely take BN over 6 drops or .12g/.12ml as it will take over a recipe. It’s still one of the best flavors I like to play with. Beautifully done and it’s friends with… Granola cookie and cookie dough!
Not sure if you did not have flv’s toffee, but if you can peg it correct, it is just like the toffee that is pulled… just placed into a pretty paper and marked toffee. It has that background of molasses and the blends of browned sugar and different hints of nuts. Totally yummy and a big must have! My usage is right is between 2 drops and 12 drops in 30ml.
I’d have gone with the caramel but added in butterscotch too but keep them both super light as you do not want it to overpower the toffee effect.
Frosting is sooo yummy… it to me is like the classic filling your Grandmother would make with cream cheese, but yet it isn’t twangy, and you can actually catch a mouth feel of sweetness lingering in your mouth and on your lips… again, peg it right! usage for me is between 2-15 drops in 30ml, depending on the effects I want from it. It can be a universal flavor, depending on how you use it.
Popcorn… now this one… yeah… Popcorn… usage rate for me on it is the same as frosting. It is not really a good solo player, and benefits from… ap… beer nuts and bn’s friend granola! It carries the buttery effect well it can also loose the popcorn effect by using too much toffee, caramel and butterscotch but with it’s friends in support, can be one of the best damn popcorn’s I have ever tasted.
Your recipe, @Pro_Vapes… by glancing… looks alright… please do not think I am knocking you. People here and there take me so wrong at times, it really is sickening and makes me not want to help anyone any longer… so know I only have good intentions when I tell you, when I mix a recipe with a goal in mind… I make so many different variations and plays off each flavor ingredient, to get a feel for how they will lay…
I do have a Cracker Jack-ish recipe I have not released and I will try hard to only give tips here because of that and I can give you a demo type that will help you see/taste a bit better and you tell me what you think, if you’d like…
How I would do this with this one recipe:
I’d set the drops per ml to 50 < that matters!
ap 5% 3 drops
Beer Nuts 3 drops
Butterscotch 3 drops
Caramel 3 drops
Frosting 9 drops
Popcorn 12 drops
Smooth Vanilla 1 drops
Toffee 6 drops
If I wanted to really mimic the OG CJ, I’d use 6-9 drops of Peanut Butter, depending on how nutty I want it to stand out… and last… 2 drops of Lime to break things down and make it all blend together. If you want to capture the fair ground type caramel corn, try 1-3 drops per 30ml of Granola!
If you have the flavors and want to experiment… I’d love to hear what you have to say on it…
and thank you @woftam
