Took a recipe for a clone of breakfast at teleo’s from a mixer w/ an excellent rep and the recipe is rated great, been made and rated like 800 times. So I’m thinking it’s a good place to start.
I did adapt it from jump, in that the milk, Graham cracker and the custard I used are DX. Apart from that, stuck to it.
I used 5% TPA Berry Crunch Cereal- that’s the main flavor- recommended as median blend percentage at 6. Is even used at up to 10 in other recipes- he’s got it at 5-6% in the recipe.
It’s got strawberry ripe, marshmallow and meringue at 2-3% each. Done.
I make it. It’s like vaping apple cider vinegar.
I adjust flavors. Take them down. Still acidic.
I again adjust by taking total flavor percentage down from a whopping 20% to 10% or less then again. I figure even if it’s muted, I don’t end up spending money on premixed when I just made this big DIY investment. At this point I’m doing 10-15ml at a time, so as not to waste too much.
I’m now down to a level that’s basically 2-3% cereal (can’t taste it), and everything else is at 0.25-1.0%.
It still burns my throat and tastes like I’m vaping 20% sour additive straight up.
I am missing the suggested CAP super sweet til tomorrow. But I don’t think that could fix this or be the only issue. People rave about this recipe like you wouldn’t believe.
All I can think is the butyric acid in all of these DX flavors! So now I’m like, better go back and buy some overpriced “value” juice, because I’m on my last tank and I can’t make anything worth vaping!
Of course I’m thinking, as I’m sure you are, that it’s the DX and V2s and butyric acid.
And I have done enough reading now on the subject of Diketones and etc., that I see that it’s about harm reduction, and that I’ll definitely be getting lung disease if I go back to my 2 pack a day habit because I’m unsatisfied with my vape.
But, now I’ve spent most of my money on these DX flavors.
If nothing else- what can I grab flavor wise to hold me over til I get paid next?
It’s not like I can just get everything I already bought in it’s regular version. I already spent my money… Lol hating myself right now.
Technically, this recipe is supposed to be the cereal (which I have and isn’t DX), and some Graham cracker, marshmallow, Bavarian cream, custard and dairy milk with a bit of sucralose.
Maybe I just need to buy those three in regular formulas and see what happens there. This recipe is supposed to be dead on for a juice I love. And it’s among the highest rated recipes on ELR. Im new, but I’m smart, so if I’ve done everything the same as him but used some DX versions of the same flavors… That’s gotta be the missing link.
Sorry. I’m writing a book. Hazard of the trade. Writer’s write. And think too much.
I have now posted this in reply to the wrong person and tried to delete it and just made a fool of myself. I’m literally terrified of the forums. Because I’m afraid I’ll do dumb stuff like this and get kicked out.
