this happened to me while playing with couple recipes so wanted to get your views. is this even a thing? could it be the secret trick why some ready made juice are hard to clone?
here’s what i did, sometime ago i mixed a recipe of vanilla custard, it’s been steeping for a month. so it’s good to go. then i had another Strawberry/BB yogurt mix in a different bottle - fresh mix. i didn’t like the custard that much and thought it needs tweaking - so while tweaking it, i got a clean bottle, mixed half VC with half SB/BB/Yog, shake, filled a tank and vaped and an immediate Wow!
OK, so trying to recreate that same (end product) taste by scaling down the flavors from both recipes to produce a single recipe won’t possibly be the same, as i tried this before. it will always be a little off. so it got me thinking, could this “mixing of mixes” be a technique that others are using out there?
i’m not talking about creating bases or stones. i’m talking about fully “cooked” mixes that you then take and mix together at various ratios (like 1 of this to 3 of that) - given that there are molecular interactions and changes with steeping, it made sense to me that the results can be different than simply mixing the base ingredients together at the same time
this is like
A + B = C
D + E = F
then C + F = X (where X is not equal to A + B + D + E, because C and F each changed into different “compounds” - especially in presence of an active ingredients like nic and molecular-level chem interactions)
or maybe this is like cooking, where in some recipes, you need to prepare and cook some ingredients first before mixing them together, because some ingredients need “different/separate” processing and prep before they are “ready” for the final mix.
hey, or i may just be over-thinking this…
thought to check what you guys think?
