Saving and using stones in recipes

I believe I have a mango base I’d like to use as a stone:

I get how to create a one shot/stone by using the wrench and clicking make one shot. But I’ve searched and can’t figure out how to then add the one shot I’ve created to recipes. Is there a way to save it? Also, so once I’ve created this stone, per the recipe i would use 5.7% of this in a recipie?

Yes…or you can use it as a concentrate and lower it as an accent …The 5.7 will get you base to be the top note in a recipe …

As far as saving if I remember correctly it should save to your stash…Maybe

Yeah that is where I am getting stuck at. Not seeing it in my stash.

Damn i just did a test and yi4ur right there isnt a save option…I think maybe I took the new numbers and save as recipe if that makes sense

But then you can’t create a new recipe with the stone and say, add cream.

Here’s the recipe I used to create the Stone

So you do have to create as a recipe first ??

It would be easier to create one shot / stone then have that " add to flavor stash " on same page after saved…@daath

Yeah, you need a recipe to mix up the Stone / Base, you really don’t need to save it as a flavor in the database unless you care to share it with others, I just keep stones as a recipe in a separate folder on my recipe page,

Nice smart idea…The reason I like them in my flavor stash is bc I xan use the lower and higher and add them to the recipe as a flavor…

Yeah if it’s in your flavor stash as a Flavor, you still have to mix it up first. You can use the create one shot feature, but I just use adjust total flavor percentage feature and adjust to 100%, zero Nic, 100% Pg and save :ok_hand:

You need create a recipe and enter your Stone as a flavor and it will be added to the database. Then make sure you go to that new flavor that you created in the database and enter notes / flavors / percentages for others to use if wanted. Here’s one I use my Bubblegum Base in,

Also if you Don’t want to create a Flavor in the database or share your Stone, you can just use a Substitute flavor in place of your Stone when mixing a recipe,
ie, use Apple (Flavorah) @5.7% in place of Scifoc’s Mango Stone :ok_hand:

You’re just begging me to pick up several stones and throw them at your windows…

  1. “if you Don’t want to create a Flavor in the database”
  • ANY entry you make, goes into the database. As a publicly viewable flavor.
  1. “you can just use a Fictitious flavor”
  • so. Suggesting people intentionally pollute the database?
    Thanks. I can’t TELL you how much I appreciate that. :rage:
  1. I have practically BEGGED from very early on (in trying to clean up the mess) that if you’re going to create a custom flavor entry, that it be done with “obviously identifiable means” (loosely paraphrased).
    Meaning:
    DO use the word STONE.
    DO use the word BASE.
    DO use your username, or other proper name.

I’ve also warned that if you DO NOT want to follow the above suggestions, don’t come crying to me later that your shit got merged because it wasn’t easily understood that it was a (and here’s the key word) VALID custom entry!!!

I’ve seen and fixed far too many bullshit entries over the years, thanks to “a moment of comic genius”, or ardent sarcasm, or intentionally creating stress and work thanks to being pissed at the forum, or at another user, or just being an asshat in general.

OK… I could have been a little friendlier there. But when you basically said “just put anything” (by choosing the word fictitious), I was just floored.

What really put me out in left field though is it was coming from someone that’s been here more than long enough (years) and has more than a vague idea what a battle the flavor database has been.
