    I definitely will! Gimme a few more days and I’ll post. There’s a version on ATF that I did called Second Breakfast. That’s steeping right now, but I have another version that I just mixed up. Wanna let it steep and see if it’s better. Second breakfast is very donut forward right now.....the v2 has a little more bacon and maple.

    Need a little help with a pumpkin pie recipe I’ve been looking to make. I stole the crust recipe from @Mykreign as usual and then realized I had ordered pumpkin bread instead of a straight pumpkin or pumpkin spice flavor...but it was my only option, so, I used it.
    [​IMG]
    It’s not all that bad, but it just comes out a bit dull or flat (if that makes any sense). I’ve got some cinnamon at my disposal to help, but worry that it’s gonna take over the flavor profile and I have hazelnut which I’m not sure has any place in a pumpkin pie recipe, the same as I have Gingerbread I could add, but not sure how that would fit in with the rest.
    Just wondering if this is something worth trying to salvage or is they key ingredient being Pumpkin Bread going to kill it no matter how I try to jazz it up?

    So is it dull or flat, spice wise, or lack of flavor?

    TFA Holiday Spice at .25 or.5?

    So I’m thinking you’re also missing a custard note. Real pumpkin pie has eggs, condensed or evaporated milk, sugar and spices. The pumpkin bread is interesting. I’m still working with it and so far have found that it’s a touch dry(being bread and all). A custard would wet it up some. Spice wise, it needed help, too. Depending on which direction you wanna go, I would add TFA holiday spice(nutmeg)@0.25%, Caps CDS(for the cinnamon)@0.5-1% or TFA Pumpkin spice(more clovey).

    Ok so as I've said 100 times, I haven't been mixing. But now I want to try to start mixing again but everytime I go in my mixing room I get completely overwhelmed by how many flavors I have. Haha any tips to get back into mixing slowly..

    I agree with @wildgypsy70 that you need custard or Bavarian cream. The spices you need to add really depend on how the pumpkin bread is spiced, in other words, you need what's missing. I know, duh me. But when I make real pumpkin bread I always have to increase the spices beyond what the recipe specifies, especially cinnamon. In your recipe, I would probably add the 0.25% holiday spice plus 0.5% cinnamon spice. I might also add 2 drops per 10ml of butter, but that depends on how buttery Inawera biscuit is. I have not used it.

    Find one or two recipes you wanna mix, that you know you have the flavors for. Stand at the doorway of the room, telling yourself, "I got this", puff up your chest and go straight in.

    Are you flavors organized? It can easily be overwhelming if you have to search and search for them, especially if you have a ton of them to go through.

    You got this. :hug:

    My flavors aren't organized unfortunately, I have been mixing recipes that other people have made, but this is more about getting back into mixing my own NEW recipes. Thanks for the encouragement though and that may well be, just what I need.

    It's probably that disorganization in tandem with sheer volume that has you overwhelmed. You might start by giving some thought to how you can get your flavors and supplies organized. Once you start working on that and pulling things together, I bet you'll have the motivation to keep going.

    If nothing else, get a couple of boxes and separate your flavors into types, like vanillas, fruits, cereals and bakery, sweeteners, beverages, etc. That will help you at least see what you have a little better.

    Maybe set a profile you wanna go for. Peruse Pinterest and look at pretty pictures of desserts(that’s what I do!). Start simple. Don’t think you need 10 flavors to get where you wanna go.

    I can alleviate you of this problem completely ... I'll send you my shipping address. ;)

    Seriously though, not much I can offer over the great advice already given. I usually start by picking a profile that appeals to me before I even look at flavors then I start mulling over what elements would be needed to make it taste appropriately. That is if I'm not trying out someone else's recipe where I already know what flavors are necessary ... there are plenty of great recipes right here on VU, in fact, in this thread even. If we could just get @wildgypsy70 to motivate the hamster, the thread compilation would be a great asset! :treadmill: ( only teasin' :D )

    After having tried this flavor for awhile now, what I can say is that it’s a double-edged sword.
    On one side, it is, in fact powerfully sour, but not overpowering and adds a nice flavor boost to the mix, but it will gunk Coils up faster than any juice I’ve made. I don’t know if taking it down a few notches would help, and I’ve only used it in the one recipe, so there may be a flaw on that part.
    I’ve had to clean/dry-fire/rewick twice in the last 12 hours with it for the last couple of days.
    Still gonna play around with it in other recipes just to see if that flavor is the culprit and not the recipe.

    Wanted to mix up a recipe for the holidays and even though it’s a bit too heavy on the gingerbread, it still came out pretty good...heavily diluted the cinnamon as usual. If it works out well, I’ll just drop some of the gingerbread flavor in the next batch.

    Being as I’m snowed in(yay!), I’m working on a chai Panna Cotta, brownie batter, strawberry cake batter, maple bacon donut, something involving forest fruit and revisiting honeycomb Custard and cookies. I got INW Shortbread and I’m curious how it would change it. It’s gonna sub for the FA cookie. Fingers crossed!

    Same here. I'm a little played out on rich and creamy stuff. I need more bright fruitiness in my life :D. The only one I've been vaping a lot of is Fiestas & Fiascos. It's a weird grapefruity recipe. Good stuff tho.

    I got two requests for Mustard Milk. Some people just love that stuff. I'm doing two 120's of that and a 120 of Fiascos. But I'd like to make another fruity something..

    All joking aside, I had the same itch a week or two ago and some Tiger’s Blood did a good job of scratching that itch for me.

    I went with chocolate covered strawberries. Blue razz sour patch usually scratches this itch for me but I was vaping that a few days ago and wanted something different.

    I’m still on a hunt for finding a chocolate that doesn’t taste like horse shit...which flavor (or combination of flavors) do you use to come out with a good chocolate flavor?

    I like Vape Trains chocolates. The Choc Milk and Choc Mousse are both great. I haven't tried to do anything with them yet. But solo they taste great.

    Vape Train chocolates(mousse, custard, milk)are pretty damn good. HS Australian Chocolate is also a good one. LB Lava Cake is chocolate syrup down low and chocolate cake up high. I love FLV Chocolate Deutch, but it has a coconut note that can be hidden with some effort.

    I like Cap Chocolate Fudge Brownie, either alone or combined 1.5:1 with TFA Double Chocolate or FA Chocolate or Cocoa.

    When I was using TFA DC and the others without the Brownie, I just couldn't get my juice to taste chocolatey enough.

    So I have discovered INW Shortbread. Wow. Buttery and wonderful. Like FA Cookie and FA Donkey Butter had a baby. I just remixed Honeycomb Custard and Cookies with the Shortbread sub.......damn, that’s good! I can’t wait to taste it with a steep. Went with 1.5%, the rest stayed the same. Purchased at DIYVS. Worth every penny.

    Thanks for that info. I had that flavor in my black Friday cart but was too busy to order (work). I checked BSF and they don't have. I suppose I'll have to wait for a xmas code.

    If you.mix with PG based 3mg nic and add a concentrate @15% and mixed 65/35 what do you get for a nicotine level?

    I used to mic VG based nic but it was 70/30-80/20. I realize my nicotine will now be lower than it was, but I'm curious as to how much.

    Thanks in advance!

    The short answer is 2.55mg after adding a 15% diluent ( flavor concentrate ) to a 3mg base ... assuming that I'm understanding your question correctly. The ratio of PG/VG is not really relevant in this context however.

    Here’s a challenge for everyone. I love Dinner Lady Lemon Tart & have tried many clones, nothing comes close. Someone with a good nose may pick up on the flavors. All my nose said was smells great , then nothing lol!

    I have been looking for profiles of lemon tart out in cyber land. I did come across a few mentioning that Inw lemon cake may be the hidden gem. However, to use it by drops, etc. I have the flavor but I'm still researching its profile.

    I have no idea what dinner lady taste like. Just thought I would share a thought.

    This recipe has great feedback, but it appears that there's a flavor on there that's hard or impossible to find in the US. FA Custard Pi 3.14? It's an FA blended flavor?

    I'm missing too many flavors to start on this one, but have never had DL LT, so I wouldn't know if it's a good clone or not.

    I've been using this one for almost a year. I just use regular FA Custard as it also has a lemon note. It's a rich vape and I can't do more than a day of it, but it's flavorful for sure.

    Probably..It would be used (I assume) as a adjunct to the other lemon notes. I'm keeping this in my notes as a "possible" adjunct.
