Private Recipe Sneak Peek (WIPs)


#1177

I am a her, last time I checked :blush: 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. :wink:

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… apbeer 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!

I’d go:
30ml
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… :slight_smile:

and thank you @woftam :slight_smile:

and… sorry for making you spend more… but they are like Lay’s chips… one just can not stop at just one!
Be like the pokemon master, and collect them all! :kissing_heart::stuck_out_tongue:


#1179

No need to apologize… Luckily I’ve been on FLVs list for free samples for about 2 years. I probably have about 75% of their entire flavor line, but I feel I have misjudged some of the usage %s. For that reason I’ll be retesting quite a few of them. Thanks again for your insight. It’s really helped me and others a lot.


#1180

I hope it does help, as I like to see people learn new ideas, things and ways.
So far this hasn’t let me down, it works for all flavor brands, not just flv… but it really has helped me and I wanted to pass what I know on to the community! :slight_smile:

Having fun and enjoying good tastes should always be #1, no matter if one does it my way or another. :wink:

I thought that said Crispy Water, and I was about to ask a few odd questions…


#1183

That would be… Ice? Lol


:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#1184

That would be a flavor I’ll be picking up right after it’s released :wink:


#1185

WIP
This one might be a far reach, but I’m going for it… Hopefully I’ll land somewhere close to what I’m shooting for.

EDIT I mixed it up… finger tasted and I definitely got a soft landing. The Vape Gods have been very kind to me lately. That Yam FLV and Pumpkin Spice FLV combo is brilliant. Now for the steep!


#1186

Worth experimenting but found the croissant gets over powered by fruits just imo


#1187

Got that one on to-do list, got everything but the RF brown sugar, but I can sneak something in there !! Looks absolute great :+1:

EDIT: oh well I haven’t got the walnut and vanilla MF !!!


#1188

this turned out good to me, I posted on one FB forums, someone said VTA honeycomb smells like cat pee, I don’t smell it, but I have no J. Jarvis nose, and my nose was abused and used in my younger days !!!


#1189

I’m working on 1 new mix and 2 others I hope to improve…

Pear flavor seems to be mostly used to moisten or boost other fruit flavors, but I’m attempting a mix with a Pear top note…

I don’t have a really solid nutty mix so I’m taking swing at a v2 of Chic-O-Stick. The v1 is ok, but I think I can greatly improve it with this v2…

And lastly I’m revamping this Peach Cobbler. The v1 is very good, but It’s profile is a little too much in-yo-face. I’m subbing out a flavor or 2 and dialing back the overall flavor %s…

Any comments are very welcomed.


#1190

Beer Nuts ??? what does this flavor taste like to you ?


#1191

I’ve been seeing this a lot recently! Curious myself. The product of the same name is sweet & salty peanuts. I see ProV is typing, sitting tight!


#1192

I think Chachi Vapes pretty much sums up this flavor in his/her notes over on the flavors page. I’m still in my early tests and I really haven’t formed a solid opinion yet.

I used it in my Cracker Jacks recipe @ .25% IIRC and it was pleasantly nutty with no off flavors, but it did come off a bit mild, so I doubled my usage for the Chick-O-Stick because I want it to be salty with a good nut forward profile.


#1193

I have been seriously over-thinking the Piña Colada! This is freshly mixed and already better than any complex mix I’ve tried. Steep will tell, of course.


Edit: if I find a decent Rum, a dash would be nice to complete the profile.


#1194

I recently made one myself, but I’ve only done a FT so far…


#1195

That looks smooth! I was going for ridiculously bare-bones basic, and a good way to test-drive the Cream Milky (VG) as there are only notes on the PG version. SF testing creams is just weird. I’m assuming it should need a bit higher % with the VG, but I could be completely wrong!


#1196

Curious if you’re Banana is in there as a Banana or to enhance other flavors.
