    I just got it myself, smells great but haven't had a chance to try it yet. What % did you use it at?

    Best packaging award goes to "Real Flavors". My package arrived a day early. Unfortunately, I can't mix until Monday. Sugar Cub, cinnamon toast and cinnamon roll pass the sniff test. I'm going to start out at 1.5%.

    I haven't tried it yet but it smells like a Slurpee to me, I think Cherry but I haven't had one of those in years, it is just what the smell reminded me off right away. It smells really good, I am going to mix some up today.

    Lol, yeah POWERFUL

    It has settled down nicely though, just barely in the background.

    Has anyone dilluted the Cheesecake? I am wondering what a good percentage would be. I am not too PG sensitive but normally like to keep my mixes 75vg and above. I am wondering if 50/50 with PG would be good, really have no idea on that.

    I have my default percentage for that at 0.5 after testing it as a single flavor at 1.5%. Some people recommend 0.25%.

    Tested at 1% on the Vengeance .2 coil at 35W.

    At a 3 day steep: a lovely bright sweet berry. This is my first experience with yumberry, and I'm not sure what the real thing tastes like. The flavor is similar to boysenberry to me, which has been until now my favorite. That type of bright refreshing sweet berry without any perfume or tart flavor. Seems to be a good percentage of flavor. I am going to mix another tester at 1.5% to see if I can push it a little stronger without adding perfume, just to see how well it will stand up in heavier bakery flavors.

    Time will tell if this stays the same strength or deepens a little with a steep. Already planning Yumberries & Cream, Yumberry Danish, Yumberry Cobbler, Yumberry Ice Cream, Waffles with Yumberries, PB & Yumberry Jam Sandwich.

    EDIT: At a 4 week steep. This flavor has surprisingly faded a little bit with the longer steep. Still bright and juicy, just not as strong. I will be using this as a S&V at around 1-1.5% as it's plenty strong as a SF. If using in something I will be steeping I would start at 1.5-2.5% SF. Starting point as a mixer for me will be at 1% and go up from there. Very refreshing, I'm liking it a lot. If you like boysenberry you will like this one.

    I get where your getting the boysenberry note but I do detect a cherry note as well. I am not a cherry fan but the Yumberry is good mixed at 2%, it is sort of like a mix of berries, hard to nail down exactly what it is.

    Have you tried the strawberry and rhubarb flavors? I mixed one up using 2% of each and it smells like it's gonna be light on flavor

    i don't have the rhubarb. the strawberry had good flavor for me at 1.5% when I tested it. ELR has the average mixing percent at 1.5 for recipes and 1.8 for single flavors. A lot of the people on the ELR forums say the strawberry is one of their favorites.

    Nice. I'll let it steep a week and see how it taste. I usually go heavy on flavor. For normal flavors I'm 15-20 %. I have like 4.2% total for the real flavors super concentrates in the mix I did yesterday. I'll let you know how it turns out

    The RF SC Strawberry is ine of my favorites as well, I could live with it and INW Shisha Strawberry as the only 2 in my mixing stash.

    1.5% comes out nicely in a mix for me, I have just started to use 0.50% RF SC Marshmallow to sweeten it up a bit and make it pop more. The Marshmallow almost give it that sugery sweetness that Shisha Strawberry has.

    I really didn't want to order more flavors but I have no will power....haha. I got these ordered today:

    Coffee cake
    Caramel cappuccino
    Cinnamon custard
    Vanilla ice cream
    Soda base
    And the freebie: Beaver Tail

    There is a lot more I want but so much I already have that I showed some restraint.

    Anyone try the Creme Brulee when it was only available in VG? I still have some of the VG but the INW version smells a lot tastier.

    Your trying to make that strawberry rhubarb custard huh....lol. they actually have a strawberry rhubarb flavor, you might want to email real flavors to ask for suggestions on the strawberry to rhubarb percentages they use or recommend.

    After you mix them so the flavors have a chance to develop.

    If you an impatient bastard like me though 1.5 to 2% each of Strawberry and Cream with 0.50% marshmallow makes for a tasty shake n vape, the cream gets richer with time though.

    I have never UC'd or heat steeped alcohol flavors. I haven't heat-speed steeped anything since last fall as I went overboard mixing batches and have lots of juice on hand. I am still vaping stuff mixed last October thru December. I mix em and forget em when it comes to full sized batches but I have tons of juice steeping.

    My 20ml testers I start testing usually a day or two after mixing, then once a week or so for at least a month. Early in the steep process they don't have much smell (or vape flavor) and have an odd characteristic that gives me a heavy chest feel like I get when vaping 80vg or higher juice. Most of them come into their own in the 3 - 4 week range. I have 2 sets of 7 testers ready to be combined to franken-recipes, 1 set of 7 I combined last week, and 19 more un-tested flavors to test (1 set of 7 + 2 sets of 6). These franken-recipe testers I have been doing the last couple months mean I haven't mixed an actual recipe in about 3 months and I still have 2 - 3 liters of steeped juice including them in my cabinet.
