So Ive been mixing for a couple months now and I’m loving it thus far. I do have a culinary background (well, line cook anyway) and I truly believe that has helped me tremendously in my diy adventures! Usually I just search the web when I have a quick question about flavors and ive really just been mixing other diy members recipes so I can get a good idea of what’s what. Salty Caramel Cream being the latest (bought the pack at BCF to show love) and its been blowing my mind how much better juices taste now that I can start tailoring the mixes to my specific taste, or palate. This is very quickly becoming an obsession, but in a good way!
My question is this, How do I get lemon to pop more as it seems to lose strength after a week, and if I add more in the beginning, it can overpower everything. I enjoy my recent recipe as a SnV, but down the road it tastes way less lemon-eee(Yes that’s a word-look it up:joy:)
I own some TPA Dragonfruit and wonder if this might work some magic in this,through its ability to emulsify. I don’t own any other lemons besides the two I’ve already incorporated into the mix, Lemon Sicily(FA), and Juicy Lemon(Cap). Each one at 2%. I also do not own any sort of lime which I hear would be a big big help. I plan on ordering some soon.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance for even taking the time to read this.
This is my recipe in case you need this info
Acytel Pyrazine (0.5%) (TPA) - 0.5%
Yellow Cake (FW) - 1%
Cookie (FA) - 1.5%
Cream Fresh (FA) - 0.5%
Lemon Sicily (FA) 2%
Juicy Lemon (Cap) - 2%
Van Custard V1 (Cap) - 2%
Van Shisha (Inw) - 0.5%
Total flavorings are at 10% so I can afford a little more if needed, however (to me) it’s perfect if only I could get that lemon to stay put! I’ve tried many many variations of this and this is the best one yet. I’ve taken what I’ve learned from Wayne’s Rhodonite to get my cookie base down, and originally this recipe came from a gentleman named Miroslec. The recipe is called “Lemon Bocaditos”. It used 2 Ingredients, Lemon Sicily (FA) at 4%,and Cookie (FA) at 1%… I have a hard time tasting so I upped the cookie and made my own variation of it to fit my needs. He deserves the credit however. He and Wayne(diyordie).
To the seasoned mixer, this recipe probably seems horrible. I get that. I don’t take it personally. I know I’m a newbie. I just want to perfect something that is a great vape for me. I have no plans of selling my juice. In fact I keep giving away the batches that I know I won’t be able to finish off.
Again, thanks for the help in my quest for the perfect cookie vape. Also, if anyone has suggestions on a great cookie base, I’m all ears. That recipe above isn’t set in stone, just an idea. I own a few cookies. Sugar Cookie v1(CAP), Biscuit (Inw), and Cookie (FA). Maybe these 3 together make something spectacular???
