I Did Not Bring it up

Anyway the article was very straight forward so that is why I choose to stay clear of Vanillin as well as others when it was posted and talked about. But I can only imagine that Commercial Vanilla e-liquid does in fact contain Vanillin. It is now that the debate is surfacing again. So if anyone finds anything out there one way or the other, it would be helpful if they post the link ----As I want my Vanilla!!! ---LOL Thanks --Sun
Considering I was a pack a day + kool smoker for 40 years I am very surprised that I need very little nicotine .. My question is .. does the juice without nicotine added create a lot of vapor?
I tried the Vanilla 0mg nicotine from Smoke51 .. also the the vanilla with 16mg [ I think ] nicotine .. Their cig has a built in atomizer .. LOTS OF VAPORT but the batteries are just awful .. The customer service I received was horrible .. they ignored my emails that said my batteries would not take a charge after a few days.
Still .. I would love to get that taste and vapor again. Any suggestions? Low or no nicotine is fine too .. I did buy one bottle of Vanilla from somewhere .. I forget, but the taste was kind of .. YUK ..
PS: I decided to buy the Screwdriver. I love the look. I drive a 67 VW Bus and I think maybe I should NOT vape with the screwdriver if I pull up next to a police car or motorcycle.. know what I mean ?
sun, I did see the posts where people were saying that it was vanillin crystals in the commercial e-liquid (though possibly unconfirmed). If this were true then I think we would have seen some cases where people were having problems related to vaping vanilla as it has been around for a good while now.
Again, just speculation. But I think I will hold off on vaping large amounts of vanilla juice until the verdict is in.
I just couldn't imagine the chinese allowing unsafe products to be used in their manufacturing
because we all know the chinese have our best interest at heart
Now that is funny, they might think a new drug has hit the streets if they smell it.

Plain vanilla flavor kind of taste like cardbord to me, it is not a stand alone flavor that we can just add vanilla and it taste good. It needs an enhancer or enhancers to make the flavor truly good.
Take coffee, it taste like crud if we just add vanilla flavoring to regular coffee but add some French Vanilla cream instead and it is hard to imagine the jump from one to the other without other tastes involved. What we all think of when we think of vanilla flavor is in a food product that has many ingerdients that help the flavor.
I have not tried to make a straight vanilla juice but it would need at least two other flavors to produce a suitable flavor that reminds us of a vanilla product. My guess would be, almond extrct to sweeten and probably butter to add a craemy taste. I have been adding mostly English Toffee to the other three to get a taste similar to a caramel vanilla cotton candy (at least by smell). The inhale taste a lot like my grandfathers pipe tobacco smelled,not sure what flavor it was but it smelled very nice. I find that I usually tweak the taste adding a little of each untill I get it just right.
Almond added to any fruit (like cherry)flavor makes it taste like a hard candy as it adds a confection flavoring. Why, i don't know but it is good that way. While most fruit flavors are fine that way, banana needs a little butter and vanilla to make it a more smooth so it taste a lot like a banana creme popcicle. A single drop of cherry also is good with it too. Almost any flavor can be enhanced or cancelled by another flavor.
If most of the vanilla flavorings have a strong alcohol taste to them, I wonder if cooking the liquid or flam baying it would reduce the alcohol taste. It works in cooking to soften the alcohol taste. Your liquid leftovers would be just a more concentrated vanilla flavor, right? You could then mix the cooled liquid in whichever solution you would like.
Kevin--what do you suggest for a method to flame out the alcohol? Thanks in advance--Sun

What does this have to do with Vanilla?

When flam baying (flambe) an alcohol in food the same way, you know most has burned out when the flames diminish. If you've ever eaten the bananas foster, it's the same idea. Without the flam baying you'd get an real alcohol taste, after, the actual taste of the liquor is there, just mush less alcohol taste.
I've also read that cooking with alcohol will diminish the alcohol by about 40-60%. I suppose that you could simply boil some of it out. Like reducing a sauce? If nothing else, it would remove some water and alcohol eventually concentrating the liquid.
