With all the talk around steeping and various methods used to obtain the optimum flavour, especially true with mothers milk/ custard bases, I thought I would experiment myself.
My choice of recipe is the leaked unicorn milk, http://e-liquid-recipes.com/recipe/255064/INTERNAL+LEAK+OF+CUTWOOK+UNICORN+MILK
Omitting the fruit notes I mixed up 120 ml of the custard base, vg and pg, using one of these heated milk frothers for 20 minutes.
I will leave uncovered in a dark, warm cupboard overnight then I will put the lid on and leave alone for 2 weeks.
My plan then is to add the strawberry, whisk to a foam then leave again, covered for a week before taste testing.
If I feel it is there or thereabouts I will add the nicotine and mix again.
My thought process behind this is to get the perfect custard base flavour and then by adding the strawberry at a later date the fruit won’t be as muted in the mix.
Again by omitting the nicotine at the early stages will hopefully ensure that the full flavour profile will be there and there will be no degrading of the nicotine?
I will keep you all updated with my results and thoughts.
