    Omg, wouldn't you be pissed if you paid a thousand bucks for a recipe, and come to find out it's:

    JF Sweet Strawberry 6%
    Cap VCV1 10%
    FW Sweetener 1.5%

    or even better yet

    TFA Tutti Frutti 10%
    TFA Koolada 2%
    Cap Super Sweet 2%

    I'm afraid I'd have to go back in that shop and strangle someone.

    That's why I said that - because it probably IS the case.

    Someone either has a really high opinion of themselves, or a really low opinion of others!

    Or maybe that shop is where HIC is hiding out, and the recipe is worth ten times what they're asking! (NOT! prolly)

    Lol! I’m guessing someone just thinks they’re a hot commodity mixer. Hahaha!! And I’m sure the recipe is super simple. If you’re mixing it on the fly, it’s only 2-4 flavors. No one has time to pull out a bunch of different flavors when someone is waiting around.

    $1000. Psh......

    Lol yeah, it's probably FW combos and sweetener. I don't get it why they think they're so "Hot shit". It's just an insignificant dude on his titanic taking all of his treasures down with him.

    It's not like I'm a manufacturer trying to make money on those juices. It would have been nice to make them to bring back memories, that's all. Eliquid is like music for me. I taste stuff I haven't in a long time and it brings me back..

    Agreed. Once in a while, I’ll buy a commercial juice that I had when I started. Definitely brings me back, as well.

    Unless you’re a pro(like works for a company or freelances for a company) mixer, no ones recipes are worth $1000.

    It is slooooooow up in here!

    I mixed Kopel’s Violette the other day. Lemon gelato with violet candy undertones. Really creamy lemony custardy stuff.....Vienna Cream for the win! I love it! Unfortunately, it takes a flavor that one can only purchase in the UK, but since I order from them every few months, not a biggie. I didn’t think I’d like the floral goings on, but I really do. It’s subtle enough that I notice it, but it’s not in your face.

    So, what is the verdict on the Lemon Cream Wafer flavoring. It will cost $12 for one 10ml bottle due to their shipping prices. Is it truly the Dinner Lady Lemon Tart? If not, then it's not worth me spending that much at a place I really don't care to shop with due to their overpriced concentrates :)

    Give us a little more time with it. I’m 99% sure, but I don’t know what goes with it yet. I’m about to put an order in there this week. Want me to get you a bottle? I’m getting a bunch of flavors so one more 10ml bottle won’t make a bit of difference.

    Thanks for the offer, That would probably save me close to $4. if I needed other stuff it wouldn't be so bad, I don't though. I went on a flavor buying spree at the beginning and middle of the month so I'm good. We don't get out $$$ till Friday/maybe Sat if that's okay with you. Send me a pm later and I can get your pp info. Thanks so much Gypsy, that's awesome of you.

    I'm looking at giving LNH a try for reg nic. Damn is that some competitive pricing. I've read nothing but good things about their nic too.

    Im interested in tryi g some of their flavors. They must screen their review star ratings, no? Almost every LNH flavor is like 5 stars. I even looked at other brands and they're all 4 or mostly 5 stars. No way in hell is Flavor West Blue Raspberry a 4.5 Stars flavor lol. 18 reviewers say so though. I think it's not... good lol.

    I have ordered Nic from LNW three times, but all of it is still in the freezer. Theirs is the best price I could find anywhere, though.

    LNW is this liquid nicotine wholesalers? Dang I thought Liquid Barn was good on their prices but these guys are even cheaper. Might get a small bottle come the first. I want to try and get one more liter in the freezer before May. just in case. :) I have about 3 liters now.

    Okay, even with the shipping ( LB offers free over $50 ) LNW is cheaper. Great deal

    I figure it cant hurt to get more. I mix for 3 people and have several liters in my freezer already, gallons really. But with the way things look, nic is going to be taxed sky high. I haven't researched it myself but people have been posting about it. Like several thousand dollars for just one liter? They really want to screw everybody over so we'll end up using the products they say.

    Time is ticking away and I get nervous that I'm not ready. I should be okay for several years though, maybe even a decade :D. Hopefully our policy makers will come to their senses one day.

    I probably should place at least one more order for nic myself. Word to the wise, DON'T wait until the last minute. Everybody who sells nic at a decent price will be out of stock if it looks like pre-mixed is going away. We think the way we hit ejuicesteals the other week was bad? Just wait until the REAL PROSPECT of no nicotine hits this bunch. And that ain't funny, either.

    @wildgypsy70 I have been sitting here vaping Strawberry Cream for a while, taking the occasional swig of my Pepsi, and you know what? It is mighty tasty together.

    I am thinking of making a variant of that SC recipe with some cola syrup and a little chocolate. Whaddayathink?

    That sounds real good to me. What cola flavoring do you use? I haven't ever tried that. I was never a Coke fan but I do enjoy a Pepsi on occasion

    The only one I've tried has been TFA Cola Syrup. I think I've been using it too heavy actually, so I'm going to keep it to about 1.25% this time and see how it does.

    Don't know if you like strawberry creams, but this recipe has turned out really good. Steeping made a world of difference in this one. (It's in the Recipes thread if you want to take a look.)

    I have a bit of a hard time tasting strawberry but I will go have a look. The one thing I do have is the RF Soda base ( was trying to make a grape soda once ) That might lighten up the TFA cola for you???

    It might, you're right. I could also try it with a little FW Cream Soda, since this recipe has plenty of vanilla in it anyway. I could back off the Vanillin and use Cream Soda instead. Good idea!

    Mix it up! Why the hell not?! The worst thing that could happen is that it sucks. But it actually looks pretty good. I’d have to sub out the cola for FA or RF, but imma gonna do it!

    So I mixed up

    CMV - Lemon cream wafer - 3%
    FA cookie - 1.25%
    FLV Vanilla Pudding - 1%

    I’m sure that isn’t the actual recipe but the CMV is without a doubt 100% the flavoring used. This tastes closer to any dinner lady lemon tart than any recipe I’ve had so far. I have a feeling the juice could be just the CMV at like 4 or 5% but who knows.

    Hi. Cap SS 2%? Your joking right?
    I use just 10 drops per 100ml, and its really sweet. 2ml per 100ml, somewhere like 100 drops.

    She’s joking. But unfortunately it’s possibly true, especially in commercial mixes. The super sweet ratio is through the roof!

    I suspected it but had to ask as I have seen recipes using % like those. Id imagine they are the ones that you read "hi, my coils only last a day or two. Any suggestions?" :D

    Well after a month of steeping, I have to say this butter pecan ice cream is just lovely. I believe it was one of your recipes @nadalama Oh it is so nice now. This one really needed the steep time. Came together wonderfully. This one goes in the "make big bottle" section :)

    Lol! :teehee::teehee::teehee:
    I really want to but I want to wait & see what other flavors @wildgypsy70 thinks is needed to make the DLLT clone as the shipping as DIYVAPORSUPPLY is kinda pricey. So hopefully I can order everything needed in one order.

    Yah it is a little pricey. I ordered a couple other flavors I needed to make it worth my while. In my humble opinion it's nothing more than the lemon cream wafer.

    I appreciate the kind thoughts, but butter pecan ice cream isn't one of mine, unless I have just had a MAJOR senior moment. :) I have french toast ice cream and fried ice cream, but no butter pecan.

    Oh! I bet it's me, I have a very bad memory. What I need to start doing is when I write it down on my recipe card, I need to put the mixologists name. :)

    Well whomever it was, thank you, it is awesome.

    @nadalama There we go, it was yours. It was the fried ice cream recipe but I didn't have cherry so I did a sub and used butter pecan and I didn't have the ooo powdered sugar so I used a little sugar daddy. But yes, it was yours. I have the ooo powdered sugar on my buy list for the first :) I would get the cherry but I have never been a fan of cherry anything :)
