    I agree it sounds lovely and think FA Pear is great with almost anything. I can't recall having a bad experience with it--aside from adding too much. Hope you'll try it and let us know how it comes out.

    I'm a man and I prefer food shows. No T&A there.

    In this case, it's anything to do with cars or people who live in Alaska. ;)

    Closest we get to T&A here is "Naked and Afraid," which I personally think is the dumbest show they've ever put on tv. :rolleyes:

    In my household, "Man TV" is Bigfoot, Aliens, Oak Island treasure, hunting and fishing shows, Mountain Men, football, CURLING for heaven's sake, and today, the freakin WEATHER CHANNEL.

    Folks at my office about to be blown and/or swept away by rushing water this afternoon and through the weekend. Hopefully we'll be out of the worst of it here at home. I live about 80 miles to the northwest of my office.

    I definitely plan on doing some hurricane mixing and I’m gonna try this one. FA pear is great! Love the stuff.....I think I’ll try it at 1% and see where that takes me.

    Btw, stay safe all the south east peeps! Hopefully, you are all safe and evacuated, if necessary. My parents live in Oriental, NC and they left.....first time ever.

    You wouldn't catch me on a barrier island today. It's already looking pretty bad even as far north as Nags Head.

    I should order some Pear flavoring. Don't know why I haven't already. My ADV for the longest time was a cinnamon pear I used to order from Madvapes. When the FDA cracked down on regulations and a lot of flavors disappeared, that was one of the ones that went poof!

    Honest to gawd, isn't that the truth? Those guys have dived down into that same damn hole about 125 times now. They've made years of programs out of one muddy hole in the ground.

    Anyone have any good recipes that include Flavorah Berry Cheesecake? I want to like this flavor so badly. Its good on the hand test. Not bad as a single flavor but I have had 0% success putting it with anything. It either overwhelms it even in low doses or muddies the mix to the point of being weird. I still have a lot of it and want to put it to work.

    No.....but it could be one that you have to dilute to use? Perhaps the wisdom of @Smoky Blue.......

    Edit.....I looked it up on ELR. She actually does have a recipe that uses it @0.8%. In conjunction with FLV Cheesecake and Greek Yogurt. Smoky Blue’s Fan Girl’s Berry Cheesecake.

    I mixed up 10 ml of this for a snv:
    4% VTA chocolate base clear
    4% TFA cheesecake graham
    3% TFA Bavarian cream

    It’s pretty smooth chocolate!

    Long time no see everyone. And hello to anyone I haven't met or talked to on here. Question, has anyone ever had a mute mix happen? Like you mix the same flavor you always mix, and one batch just comes out mute and without flavor at all? Happened to me and I have no clue why.

    Today's Mix - Simple Apple - Pear
    8% CAP Fuji Apple
    5% IWA Pear

    My numbers are always high cause of burnt out taste buds, can drop the numbers 1% - 2% to taste.

    Did you happen to mix it with salt nic? That's the only time I've had that happen. Salts take the flavor right out for me, have to increase flavors by about 50%.

    Back in the late 90s I made a few business trips to southern California. Of course you know your sleep schedule's all screwed up at first, so I'd end up wide awake at 4:00 in the morning, with 5 hours to kill before I had to be anywhere. Started driving down the PCH in the mornings, good place for breakfast in Laguna Beach, and all up and down the highway there were the surfers, getting suited up right out of the backs of their cars on the side of the road. Had to pull over and give a look-see, I think down around San Clemente or thereabouts. I loved watching them, and the gorgeous landscape around the coast, omg. What a place. Sat with seals in Children's Cove in La Jolla for a couple of hours one Sunday morning. One curious little baby kept inching its way over toward me until Mom would come and shoo it back to where she was settled and sunning herself. My only real memory of surfing, but it's one I really enjoy thinking about now and then. Thanks for the flashback. :)

    My recipe here: Fan Girl's Berry Cheesecake :)

    At .80% it's not so strong, but strong enough you can taste what it is. Not sure how much you were using it at, but it is a climber.. meaning I could have taken it down to .6% and might enjoy it even better. This was just a simple recipe to "get into the ball park" once it steeped up eh.. 3-5 days I could see it a bit better..

    If I had it to do over again.. I'd add in some pound cake, a touch of mixed berries, more cheesecake that part needs an increase), some brie... basil would be nice but not needed here.. perhaps raspberries.. a few drops of caramel.. and the yogurt does help cheesecake to maintain the sharp crisp twangy I love.. Berry cheesecake is good, but I guess I am a stickler for building your own too often. As a solo, to me, its a flat basic berry cheesecake, which is just what the flavor is meant to be. a building block for a good recipe ;)

    The crunch cereal and cookie, worked good.. but if I was adventurous.. I'd have added in some apple filling to soften up the crusty bit... so many things you can add in on these to make it your own :)

    I hope this helps out :)

    Thanks @wildgypsy70 .. I try to have recipes with all of the flavorah line.. I have tons more that are not online I need to get up, one of these days :)

    Same batch of nic I have been using for a while. The odd part is I made two of the same flavor at the exact same time, one turned out fine, the other was mute.

    Yeah it was Salts that I use, though like I replied to Hillbilly Pig, I made two batches of the same recipe side by side, at the same time. One turned out good, the other completely mute.

    Fluke situation? *shrugs* Well no matter, this was a 1 out of 100 experience, hope it doesn't happen too often.

    Thanks for the tips. I generally try and go easy on the Flavorah stuff because it is stout across the board. usually with other flavors in the line I massacre the first recipe with them and start getting t dialed down correctly. This one particularly has been trouble to mix (for me anyways).

    Bright and sunshiny here.. but it will only rain, maybe a bit of wind by the time it reaches me..
    Grateful my boys are off the coast, my brother and sil will be up here this weekend and everyone is safe and sound.. <3


    Yeah I have heard from a few they can't get much, or it is too strong for them.. (berry cheesecake)
    I'm the odd ball, I guess.. :)

    I know of a lot of the bread types it can go a few ways too, from dirty socks and cardboard to omg this is the best since...
    What I have found tho is the drop method in 10ml bottles.. seems to work out good from there and increase and mix match over time..
    I wont be the first to say flv has kinks, but their kinks just match mine lol.. :p

    For the hurricane, I did up a 4oz...

    Hurricane Cocktail (all flv)


    1.2% Mango
    1% Banana
    .6% Tropical Orange
    .2% Sweet Coconut
    .12% Alpine Strawberry
    .07% Sangria

    Instead of adding in rhum, I picked sangria, lending a alcohol-ish kick to all the fruits..
    Ready in around 4 hours.. if you make a larger batch, let it sit for 1 day..

    VA is just cloudy.....we get ours early next week, if we get anything at all. The state of emergency has been lifted. Coastal N.C., on the other hand, is devastated.....

    With anything milky/creamy/custardy, I go at least a week. And I haven’t really used the Italian Cream a lot. HS FVIC I usually use around 1-2%. On ELR, Italian cream(the one recipe there was) is used at 0.8%.
