TFA Vanilla Custard thoughts?


Ah…ok then



Sorry…:joy_cat: Carry on!



I’m a Custard Freak pretty much everything I vape and mix is custard right now.
I don’t get the peppery taste from TFA Van-Custard but I do get a lemony/citrus/almost but not quite sour note to it.
My absolute Fave is good old CAP-Vanilla Custard.
It’s so versatile I sometimes use it in my fruit/cream blends to make that cream part really work well.
But having said all that.
Your Pallet is yours alone so you may love it you may not.
What I have learned mixing flavours is that every flavour has a place.
Even the ones we don’t like can actually work well when mixed with others.



Yea Custards and vanilla I like a-lot.

Ppl say you can go to 15% VC-v1 (Cap) solo and 2% Shisha vanilla solo

I need something simple I can enjoy and taste in a pod system.

And I need it right the first time due to the long steep and making a bigger batch

Would this work ne thoughts?

15% VC-v1 (Cap)
2% Vanilla Shisha (INW)
2% Pyure sweetener



I’ve been mixing for quite a while now and I say must I don’t see any positive coming from that mix at those percentages. Whatever you have heard that’s bad about those flavors you are sure to find it in that mix. If you insist on mixing with high percentages, You would do better if you cut your percentagesite in half and try it there. It’ll be a bit high, but not outrageously so.



Thanks… Ill look at top recipes again.



I liked the Strawnana Custard @10% recipe But new to so Shisha Vanilla so 1% SV?

You won’t be able to actually taste custard in pods. You can get the richness, the creaminess to an extent but that’s about it.

Going higher in percentage won’t do anything, besides increasing steep time, which is long on caps v1 already.

I’d suggest going with a medium/thicker and more vanilla or high note pronounced cream, rather than custard. For example, French vanilla (tpa/cap/wf), a good medium ice cream example (hs French vanilla etc). You get the picture.

But if you absolutely want to go with custard, give (inw) custard a chance. In regular systems you can use it from .5-3% and it only takes 3 day steep to fully mature. Can taste it right off the shake tho.

pair that with a good vanilla, for example shisha or even flavour arts, or whatever brand and it should be fine.

For your pod increase by .25 and work from there. Not every pod system needs extreme high percentage, in my opinion.

Edit: unless you’re planning on vaping 50mg nicotine of course, but then fruit only mixes are more your friends :wink:



Yes got a great picture now. You reminded me I whipped up a on the fly pod mix using VBIC-Cap once and it reminded me of van ice cream w/ real whip cream topping. Just want to get some custard in there. and a strong vanilla note.

I’ll keep searching my friend!

Good tip! tyvm nah Im 24% nic



I knew that pods require more flavor totals but I had no idea about certain flavors not coming through … why is that? I haven’t tried them, but having less-than-good experience with older cigalikes has kinda put me off of them.
Maybe ELR should have a separate recipe section for pod recipes to avoid confusion for regular mixers and make it easier for people using pods to find what they need.



Have 2 of these Aspire Breeze 2 and all the different Atomizers

I’ll figure out how to get better flavor from em.

Perfect for me. in between e-cig and power mods.

I’ll lower the nic so i can use the lower resistance atomizer for max power.

12-28 W, Voltage 3.5-4.2 V.

1.2 ohm
1.0 ohm
0.6 ohm


edit: now that I think about it…that once time that VBIC really was wonderful, was when I did have the 0.6ohm coil in it.



Edit: If I make something good and non-private, I’ll take the nic down to 3mg before I post it.

Good luck even wit my friends that use the RDA’s, can’t figure it out. something tasty on one of their mods, wont be the same on someone elses, it’s too funny guess ya hav to find what works for you and keep to it.



great flavor



Watching the Stock Ticker that is the Recipe database I noticed a recipe labeled POD. Interested parties can just search for “POD” on the ELR Home

This has to already be a discussion on ELR …don’t make me look :smirk: I can assume any Pod recipe creators would automatically think of that same Title add. I see some Pod recipes from @fidalgo_vapes vapes and @SmokyBlue in my Search above …any Pod recipe naming convention threads?


Recipe title suffixes to help your fellow mixers (Poll)

I dont think it has bud. Assume they did it to help them separate them from their others but would be a kind gesture if they did add (POD) or whatever to the name.



I put (pod recipe) at first then i added ( nic salts ) as well so i think my last recipe looked like this
PG ( pod recipe) ( nic salts ) . I decided to do this so people would know the difference and be able to tell right away what the recipe was made for … I have a few more to make public soon … I think with the high nicotine content it is my responsibility to make people aware right away , maybe in the future I’ll add a warning in the notes , I would hate to see someone use that recipe in a sub ohm set up or try to use freebase nicotine



I love the idea! :thumbsup:
I do think it could be considerably shortened though (for better visibility). :wink:

Recipe name (pod, PG, salts)
Recipe name (pod, PG, freebase)

I’m not really sure if PG is even needed, as most pods won’t handle high VG to start with (but I’ll leave that to the folks who know, as I don’t have a clue on pods!) :wink:

Great thinking to help your fellow users out though! Kudos!



There is a reason why pods should be created from a complex recipe. At the amount they hold vs the heat from the coil, it ruins complex flavor chains and you are no better off it you kept it to around 3-4 flavors. Pods are very simple and the mixes they use should be too.

I do not increase flavor amounts either, there is no need to do that with the ultras.

I can’t comment on TFA Vanilla Custard… haven’t used it on 5 yrs now. :wink:

As far as naming, I normally use the left part of my recipe for that, however if @daath could perhaps make a tick button to click stating that the recipe is for pod mods, might make things simpler. I know a few folks tho that use nic salts from 9mg and up so it will be a bit harder to determine if a recipe is for a pod mod or rda… tuff call.




The mid range POD devices are pretty decent for flavor and quality vapes. The lower end ones I stay away from, unless they have some unique feature like cotton less coils.

I’ll be reviewing one of these lower range ones with ceramic coils. I’ll let you all know if it’s a game changer. I hope it is.

Mid-Range pod system
28 Watts max
0.6ohm (coils 1-1.5ID or more)
Some type of air flow control

Low-Range pod system
12 Watts Max
1.0+ohm (tiny tiny ID coils)
No air flow control
