    I have been doing this very same thing!!!! I am loving it. I made this blue raspberry sherbet that is definitely going in the rotation. I vaped it all weekend in NYC this week and it was 100 there as well, but I still had a blast.

    100 degrees in NYC sounds dreadful. It was pretty dreadful here at 101, without all the concrete radiating heat up from the ground. Yikes!

    The heat was dreadful, the city was amazing though. We ended up on a movie set, got to party on a yacht, took a cruise around the harbor. t-minus 2 weeks to Europe. It's been a great summer so far. Got this picture on the boat while vaping on some Gallagher's.

    here is another one I whipped up last week and just got to trying today. There is a bunch of vanilla in here, but don't let that scare you. My thinking was that the yogurt bite in frozen yogurt really takes a back seat to that icy vanilla chill, so while I wanted the texture I didn't want the intense cheesy bite. It worked. I contemplated vanilla bourbon because I really love that flavor, but I didn't want the earthy undertone that comes with it. I was going to go holy vanilla, but that is a deeper darker vanilla not reminiscent of vanilla froyo, so I settled on Vanilla Tahiti FA as the accompanying vanilla.

    I've really been loving the ws-23 lately with this heat. It's nice and refreshing. Overall, it is a bit heavier than your typical frozen yogurt you might get at a shop, but I really like it. I think maybe it reminds me more like vanilla soft serve ice cream.

    LOL maybe I should buy one :D

    I’m still using my syringes. It’s a pain but its accurate :D

    Can you guys use the scale successfully when mixing 10ml testers?

    Absolutely, can even mix 5ml unless using ultras. If you're using ultras though 5ml probably isn't a big enough batch unless you are using toothpicks.

    I'm an old creature of habit & will probably never get a scale.

    So how do y'all think this would do for a Caramel Waffle Cappuccino?

    Belgian Waffle (LB) 3%
    Brazilian Coffee (WF) 1%
    Butterscotch Natural (FW) 1.2%
    Caramel (FA) 0.8%
    French Vanilla Deluxe (TFA) 2.5%
    Maple Pecan (FW) 0.8%
    Marshmallow (FA) 1.2%
    Vanilla Whipped Cream (Cap) 2%

    Total 12.5%

    Thank you. 3 people same recommendation. So it is good and accurate? And has a wall plug? That sounds perfect.

    It’s def accurate and easy to use. And has a wall plug! And it’s at Amazon, which makes things easy.

    That’s why I got this one. Couldn’t mix the same recipe twice. Something was always off. You’ll like it. It’s also 18650 battery powered, if I’m not mistaken.

    I ordered the scale I linked you to too! I’ve had it in my “buy later” cart @ Amazon for a while. Let’s hope it’s easier than syringes :D

    I personally think it is much easier. Hopefully you still have all the drip caps for you flavoring bottles though. I used to pop all those off, but saved them for whatever reason. Thankfully I could put them back on and just drip straight out of the bottles into the bottle I am mixing in. Turns cleanup into about a 30 second process rather than 5-10 minutes depending on how large the mixing session was.

    I’m little OCD so of course I have the drip caps :D. The worst pain was prying off some vendors drip caps, have it down now with a pocket knife but still so much easier to drip into the bottle you’re mixing into.

    Only reason I’ve held out for this long is respecting my daughter’s :D scientific analogy that the syringes are infinitely more accurate. Shhhh don’t tell on me :teehee:

    That & all you guys using it successfully. I think at least for our purposes since we’re not chemists it’s okie dokey :p

    Thank you everyone for your input :inlove:

    I’ll be sure to let everyone know how I get on with it :shades:

    I never saw the need to use syringes as syringes. I just used them as a means to measure flavoring. I'd pull the plunger, cap the end and drop the flavoring in the barrel. I usually had to use no more than two syringes and in some cases only one depending on the percentages used in the recipe I was mixing. Cleaning them was no big deal either, suck up some soapy water, expel it, repeat, rinse and dry.

    That said, I do see the appeal of measuring by weight and I admit, nowadays that's usually how I mix as well.

    My mixes started tasting a lot better once I started mixing with a scale. I was counting drops, though, instead of using syringes. I'm sure I was using too few drops.

    Scale = virtually no cleanup, too. I really like that.

    Mixed a candy strawberry, blue razz sour patch and Fuji razz.

    The strawberry is so hitting the spot right now!

    Ok, question for you peeps:

    Are there flavors that can mute Koolada? Does lime mute everything?

    Here is the recipe that is weird. It is my attempt at a facsimile of VapeWild's Blackberry Breeze that @MrMeowgi talks about.

    Blackberry Natural (FW) 7%
    Key Lime Natural (FW) 3%
    Koolada (TFA) 1.5%
    Marshmallow (FA) 2%
    Wintergreen (TFA) 3%

    At these levels I would expect to really have in-my-face blackberry and mint/cooling, but I don't. What I taste is mild blackberry with a dry-ish citrus flavor that hits the back of my throat, and very mild mint and coolness on my lips.

    I wonder if the lime is taking the oomph out of everything else in the mix. -OR- the FW Naturals flavors just aren't very strong.

    Don't want to remix this right now because I still have 20ml of this mix to vape. Don't get me wrong, it's decent, it just isn't what I expected.

    ETA: I may just have figured something out here. I was vaping it at 45w, but I get more flavor from it if I bump it up to 50w. Can't go above 50, makes me cough. Still would like your thoughts tho.

    I wish I could help! I don’t use Koolada, so I’m not sure. I use ws-23 when I do any cooling. And I haven’t used the “natural” flavors, either....I only have one(lemonade) and I haven’t got around to testing it yet.....haha.

    When I get low on Koolada, I probably will order WS-23 in its place.

    I really like the FW Lemonade Natural, use it a lot as an accent flavor, for tartness. Overall I'm an FW fan, which I know many of you are not. I think it's mainly because I just like "sweet" so much! :)

    Lol! I love FW!!! Especially for their cakes and caramels. I love all the houses for different reasons.

    And I hear Vape Wild uses FW....so you’re on the right track!

    And thanks for the lemonade advice. I love lemon vapes, but can’t Vape them for long....trashes my taste buds.

    This looks great. And very interesting how different people put together the same recipe. I haven’t put together my recipe yet, but I think we will have one(maybe two) flavors in common. I’ll post mine tomorrow. My brain is mush tonight.....having a bit of an episode right now.

    I made this on Friday as a kind of experiment. I was looking for something summery but with a bit less of that hibiscus flavor from Gallagher's (which i love). This might be the best juice I have ever created. I can't stop vaping it. It's sweet without being overbearing, it's sour, it's really quite wonderful. Shake and vape. Try it out. I can't get enough.

    New recipe that I've worked on for a couple of months, just now mixed for the first time:

    Coke After Dark

    Amaretto (DIYFS) 1.75%
    Anise (Inw) 0.6%
    Black Cherry (FA) 2.25%
    Cola Syrup (TFA) 2%
    Cream Soda (FW) 2.5%
    Lemon (FE) 0.75%
    Royal Orange (FA) 1.5%
    Super Sweet (Cap) 0.75%
    Vanilla Bourbon (FA) 2.5%

    Total 14.6%

    This would probably be good with an actual bourbon flavor in it for folks who like bourbon (not me); otherwise, it's dark, spicy, fruity, warm Coke without the fizz. Not sure if that sounds good to anyone, but it is good. The cola flavor is definitely there but isn't overpowering. I like it a lot.

    You could sub something. FLV or RF would work just fine. I'd take the FLV down to like 1.25% and the RF you could do at like 2%

    I haven’t mixed anything new up for awhile and don’t know where this idea came from, but it’s not too bad for being out of the game for awhile[​IMG]
