    I remember! I do taste a touch of salt in there....kettle corn does have that thing going on.
    If they could figure out salt......whole new world!

    That’s what I felt from you, that you were approaching mixing like you would’ve baking. That’s so cool to me! My MIL used to bake a lot and was famous in their family for it. Then they ended up moving to NV and oddly her baking and cooking aren’t the same. I did get a bunch of recipes and cookbooks from her, so that was good.

    My mom wasn’t a good cook. Some things she did make well, but it was usually for holidays. But everyday cooking from her was blech, and she never tried to show me anything.
    My hubs showed me a lot about cooking/baking when we first got married. I was kinda lame but he was very cool about it.

    I’m glad you’re here to share your mixes. I feel that I could learn so much from you! :hug:

    Thank you all for the birthday wishes and the smiles it gave me.:blowkiss:

    PS. Read FLV pretzel has a good salt kick.

    I wish you could just add a few grains of salt. But after all these kids got sick from whatever weird stuff they vaped, I’m not that adventurous!

    It’s funny because when I was on ECF, you told me about their mixing thread, but I was only just getting back into vaping so I really wasn’t ready yet!

    Hope you had an excellent birthday with cake (or not lol) but definitely with lots of yummy clouds! :hug:

    For da Holidays my mom MADE us Eat Lutefisk...

    Preparation
    [​IMG]
    Lutefisk is dried whitefish (normally cod, but ling and burbot are also used) treated with lye. The first step is soaking the stockfish in cold water for five to six days (with the water changed daily). The saturated stockfish is then soaked in an unchanged solution of cold water and lye for an additional two days. The fish swells during this soaking, and its protein content decreases by more than 50 percent, producing a jelly-like consistency.
    When this treatment is finished, the fish (saturated with lye) is caustic, with a pH of 11–12. To make the fish edible, a final treatment of yet another four to six days of soaking in cold water (also changed daily) is needed. Eventually, the lutefisk is ready to be cooked.
    In Finland, the traditional reagent used is birch ash. It contains high amounts of potassium carbonate and bicarbonate, giving the fish a more mellow treatment than wood lye. It is important not to marinate the fish too long in the lye because saponification of the fish fats may occur.

    NASTY STINKEY FOUL AWFUL stuff dat is
    .
    .
    .
    much like most of da store bought vaping flavors I started with.

    yet da gang here sure can direct you out of the land of YUCK and into some really Good stuff.

    My mom used to broil meat until it was well done. (Err, gray. lol) I hated it. When I met my hubs, he made me a rare steak. Heavenly!

    I know, the info here is great! It is really inspirational. Hope you’re having a great weekend, Bunny.

    So would the Beer Nuts saltiness or maybe a Pretzel flavor add a salt kick to this? Or would it clash?

    The last mix that I made that I hated, I added some raspberry to a custard one shot. It was yucky and made me cough for some reason.

    I'm going to try some Kettle Corn first, because I have it on hand. Can't think of any other flavor I have that would work for salt, unless butter flavors are salty. Not excited about using a butter flavor in this, just doesn't seem like it "belongs." Kettle Corn (TFA) at 1% maybe.

    Let me know what you think about the Origins.
    I was surprised I liked it as much as I did as a S&V, then got really happy after a few weeks.

    @Rhianne I mixed the liquid barn white chocolate/peppermint on the 7th. I'm trying it now in a Berserker mtl 1.5 and it's great. I mixed at 8% The taste is more peppermint with a light touch of white chocolate at exhale (more sweetness noted). It is perfect for me. I'm not crazy for sweet flavors (never have been) however, this one will make the list. I don't think it will be a all day vape or anything close. Its perfect for a break in tobacco flavors for me. I plan on making up the rest to send out to bro and SIL.

    Thanks for letting me know. :hug: I’ll definitely be trying that as a single flavor. I don’t really like sweet either.
    I didn’t know you vaped tabac flavors. I have LB Vanilla Cream Tob and it’s pretty good. It never really gets a good steep, though, since I’ve been SnV’ng it.

    Have a great holiday today!

    I have always loved tobacco and variants. My true love is Inawera tobacco absolutes. Sadly, they are hard to obtain anymore. I switched to Flavorah tobaccos. My favorite is the arabian and turkish. The arabian is pricey but a 0.5% is what is needed for me. After 9 years of vaping I still like my tobaccos. I also like hangsen at times.

    I love them too. They’re my go to flavors pretty much, or I’ll add other flavors to tobaccos. So before I buy any of them, I’ll ask you. Thanks!

    I’ve never seen a bread flavor except bread pudding. Hmm, all of those make it pretty interesting. Thanks.

    Oops, I forgot these are used for baking.

    Got some flavors and new one shot's to try from chefs, I like the one shot's, because I am a lazy mixer :teehee:

    Not sure about some of these one shots, but never know unless you try :)

    Probably won't get to mix till the weekend, but will let you know how it turns out ;) Wish there was a US store that did a big selection of one shots like chefs, the US diy sites only have small selections of one shots.

    I’ve only found them at ECX, the ones I like anyway. Isn’t it expensive to convert into dollars? You pay more that way.

    But I’ve heard they have nice flavors! Enjoy them. Let us know. :giggle:

    Yea ECX does a few and some others too, but very limited amount compared to chefs, it does work out more expensive from the UK, but still cheaper than store bought juice though.

    Granted it hasn't fully developed yet, not too terrible but still not what I was after. Still trying to come close to a light faint banana whipped cream or light banana pudding. Tried cap banana at 2.5%, tfa bavarian cream at 3% and tfa whipped cream at 1%. I think the bavarian is too rich for what I'm after. Hard to describe, I'm trying to get a sort of smooth cream that's almost more mouthfeel than actual flavor. Sort of like the taste of reddi whip but almost like the smell you get off it when you shoot some in your mouth (c'mon I know you've done it lol). Not a whippet, can upside down just the whipped cream.

    Any ideas? I figure I should be able to get somewhere close, I've got the following -
    FW Yogurt
    TFA Whipped Cream
    TFA Vanilla Swirl
    TFA Vanilla Custard
    TFA French Vanilla Deluxe (too strong on the vanilla I think)
    TFA Dairy Milk
    Cap French Vanilla v1
    TFA Bavarian Cream
    Cap Vanilla Custard v1

    I've also got TFA cheesecake with graham crust, Cap NY Cheesecake v2 if either of those would lend body without adding too much flavor. The cream I'm trying to reproduce just doesn't have a lot of flavor, it's not rich and eggy or rich with vanilla. I have FA cream fresh also though that one seems to get kind of milk heavy. Just not sure what direction I should lean for mild, sweet, airy.

    I’m gonna say, with what you’ve got, TFA Vanilla Swirl....the duct tape of diy. It should give you that light vanilla, light custard/pudding thing you’re looking for. I think the rest are too vanilla, too custard or too thin. TFA Whipped Cream is close, but can get thick if used too high. The cheesecakes have the bakery note....and some detect a coconut note, as well.

    Maybe for your next order, Caps Vanilla Whipped Cream would be a good idea. That’s probably what you really need. Or FLV Vanilla Pudding, depending which direction you wanna lean.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll have to keep those in mind for next time. I'm not against heavier vanilla or thicker pudding but for this one I'm trying to get close on it's just not the right fit.

    how about..
    Salty Butter Balls-FW
    $1.49
    Salty Butter Balls flavor is a brilliantly blend mix of Milk Chocolate, Butterscotch and Salted Caramel flavoring. This flavor offers a sweet taste on its own. Enjoy a unique flavor that never disappoints.

    If you aren't adverse to picking up another flavor, I'd suggest trying VT Banana Custard. It's not a 'in your face' banana or custard to my tastes. I think it's pretty good but more along the lines of a pudding than a custard which is actually totally fine with me.

    That’s true. I’ll check them out. But first I’ve got to try the ones I have. I got Base 3mg from LB with lines up the label with percentages, so it’s really easy to mix a 50ml bottle.

    Edit: Salty butter balls sound great. Has anyone tried them? The name is kinda unforgettable.

    Break it out @wildgypsy70, at 48 hours it's fantastic. I'm really looking forward to it as it steeps.

    @Howard Hughes you nailed this one. Just the right amount of strawberry, the shortcake just underneath and a cream afterward. Fantastic at 2 days. A new ADV, I've been wanting a good strawberry and this is it. Nice job.

    VT lemon meringue tart is a good one shot, just lacks a bit in the crust but still pretty tasty.
