thanks. ill add tpa roasted marshmallow on my list.
“Toasted”. Just in case you can’t find it looking for “roasted”.
2 week ago, I made a ‘Simple Strawberries and Cream’. but it tastes too greasy. i think it needs to add something.
but i have no idea what is good.
could you give me idea plz
What’s the recipie?
I have flavor on the inhale but not so much the exhale. Do I need more flavoring? Steeping/ Vapor’s tongue? What would cause this. I made the recipe yesterday. Oh, How do I get a bit of that “sugar lip” taste at the end too? I like that bit of sweetness.
I used this recipe…
Cotton Candy (10% EM/Ethyl Maltol) (TPA)
Hard Candy (FW)
Raspberry (Sweet) (TPA)
I’d skip the EM and use Pyure around .4-.5% (you might have to play with it a little here) for the sugar lips. EM can mute other flavors and it’s not a great sweetener to begin with (IMO) so it’s probably not helping your mix at all.
Part of that can be/is affected by whether or not you exhale through the mouth, or nose (or some combination thereof)!
When I use a sweetener in anything it’s Pyure Organic Liquid Stevia. It’s especially good with fruits because it can brighten them as it also has Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Citric Acid. It’s strong, so I always start with 1 drop at a time.
And it doesn’t mute like EM and Sucralose.
damn, if only i can get that stevia here but unfortunately there’s no available on the market. the only brands available here is NATURALS, STEVITA and LEAF LIFE
I believe Walmart has Pyure liquid. No Walmarts near you?
this is a trick that helped enhance some of my already steeped mixes when i find flavor became muted - i don’t really know why & how it works… i found it thru trial and error - and it worked many times on different mixes - mainly creams, creams + fruits, and creams + nuts. so i use it all the time now.
sharing here in case others may find it useful - if it works for you pls let us know.
step 1: the fixer_1: I prepare a mix of 4% TPA Ripe Banana + 6% CAP VC v1 (so total flavor is 10%, the rest is my base as usual - i also add nic to the same % i would vape - in this case 2%) - this mix doesn’t need to steep for long. i give it at least a day after a good shake
step 2: I add ~5% to 10% of “the fixer” to my mute/bland mix. can do that in the bottle (example: for 20ml i will add 1ml fixer) or in the tank (usually few drops). give it a good shake (if in the tank, i give 20 mins or so to blend), then i vape on. the muted mix gets “brighter” and the base flavors are enhanced.
working on another fixer for mixes that come out peppery after steep using the same approach.
i don’t vape the “fixer” by itself, the flavor is too faint/weak, but i was surprised by the effect it has when added this way to already steeped mixes. [edit: so if RB and VC enhance flavors, why don’t we just add small % in the original mix? i tried that and it doesn’t have the same effect as adding it after the original has already steeped]
let me know if this trick works for you and if it helps save some of your steeped mixes. pls try it first with a small sample of your mixes, and not in large amounts just in case it doesn’t work for you
I think if you were to use a different Peach it would help. FA White Peach is exceptionally potent but very pleasant at lower levels this can yield a more realistic peach. If you’d like the peach to stand out more I’d use white peach FA at 1-2% w/ your original mix and yes Champagne FA can have a boozy astringent effect up above 1% I’d take it down to 1 and you may also consider Quince TFA for a nice mixer it’s more apples and pears than any peach but it will fill holes and make a better palatable vape. I like Quince TFA around 0.50- 1% it is strong so YMMV completely for all of these values as I taste peach extremely well ! Good Luck
may i know what’s your base on this “fixer”? max PG or VG?
I guess this is very true. Thanks lolly
I love it but I might try vaping the individual flavors first then play with the ratios to see if it can be improved upon. Thanks for the tips SthrnMixrr.
Ok this is a general reply lol I do like sucralose but only at very low amounts I don’t even usually put this in recipe calculator at all I use capellas super sweet at usually 3-4 drops per 30ml which for me is just enough to give it that boost it needs. If using tfa sweetener it’s half as strong as super sweet so therefore I use 6-7 drops per 30ml and tfa marshmallow is very good and so is toasted marshmallow (my fav) tfa! If you use to much sweetener it’ll actually ruin your mix imho and kills subtle layers in it! Anyway bye
I love the sour apple note on the exhale but I was after a more sweet/bubblegum-ish taste upfront on the inhale.
Not sure how to get this with my current flavor stash.
