Re a convo @jay210 and I had on the introductions post, I’ve just been in touch with Vapour Depot asking about the (lack of) availability of Botanics Elixir, they confess they’ve been lacking a little but are “hoping to change that in the next couple of weeks”. They also asked if there was anything I was specifically after, so I thought I’d mention this to you all, as if there’s a few of us after the same flavours it might be that it seems a little more worthwhile diluting a batch.
Wild Honey springs to mind as a must-have in this range, IMO This one really needs to be used in diluted form, as the neat MF is way too strong.
I guess Dark chocolate has to be a winner, too. And Wild Raspberry. Can’t say I’ll be buying those two , though , because I have them in undiluted MF now, but they are two MF flavours that people consistently rave about, so ought to be popular
Steer clear of Green Apple. It’s too damned weak. I was having to use it at 20% to get some real flavour out of it :(. Also steer clear of the Rasperry (non-wild) . The damned stuff scorches, in my experience
Sorry for delayed reply. Took my eye off the ball for a few days.
Yep, talking Botanic Elixir (in reply to a question from @BikesAndBacon) . I was very disappointed by that one. Didn’t think I’d need to go quite that high. Maybe an old batch? shrugs). But, anyhow, anything that needs in excess of 1% MF, would be rather too dilute in BE form, IMO.
Ah. Gotta admit it’s an awsome flavour. Spot on. But by the time you’ve faffed around finding the right %, your little bottle of BE is all gone . So i’d say that if anybody really likes green apple, it’s best to jump right in deep end with the pure MF on that one. Can’t imagine it disappointing. I mean, not as a flavour. (Just the dilution disappoints)
Anonymiss has put up all the open source vapor recipes which they published when they shut down due to FDA - they do use 6 or 10% Ultra-distilled Penta water rather than PG so you may find a few in there you like.
Personally, I found her OSV archives long ago, but that is definitely very useful info for anybody experimenting with MF.
Oh! and thanks also to Anonymiss , if she’s listening? That was a really amazing thing to do, preserving the OSV recipes like that. It’s the sort of thing that you really hope that somebody will trouble to do. And then you’re (well me, i mean, of course) gratefully surprised to find that somebody actually has.
Not trying to diminish any credit to Anonymiss in any way, but wanted to let you know that several people here were actually taking the time and effort to post those recipes when they first went public!
Fortunately, most of the alternate entries were either made private, or deleted. (It was a concerted group effort at the time as I recall.)
Hi @jay210, great job putting this together thank you. I’m still haven’t got any MF flavours yet😩 one day, it would be great if they sold sample sizes as well but never mind very keen to try them though. Thanks again.
you’re welcome Well, when you make an order, don’t forget to ask for free samples. Both GEB and MF will send you a free sample if you ask. MF told me that they can’t offer their sample size for sale, because there’s no room on those dinky little bottles to fit all the info that the law requires.
