    Default Banana Cream Pie

    Hi all, this will be my first recipe posted, I hope you enjoy it, as much as I have. It's kind of rich, but then so is a good banana cream pie right?

    I use a VG based 150 mg nic solution that I cut down to 15mg. Here are the amounts and percentages that i used in my mix.

    In a 10ml amber GLASS bottle I added in the following order:

    1.0ml (10%) 150mg nic VG from ecx (was ordered as 100mg and I got a 50mg bonus)
    3.2ml (32%) PG
    4.0ml (40%) VG
    0.7ml (7%) Capella Banana
    0.7ml (7%) TFA Graham Cracker Crust
    0.4ml (4%) Capella Vanilla Custard

    I then add on top of that:

    5 drops of ethyl maltol in PGA
    4 drops of Vape Wizard from FlavorArt
    2 drops of acetyl pyrazine

    Put the top on, shake well. Put in a hot water bath for EXACTLY 5-15 minutes , shaking a couple times while it's in there. Let is sit for roughly 12 hours, then vape.

    I am currently vaping it on an eVic, set on 6w output, with a 2.4 ohm Vision 2.0 knock off from DiscountVapers.com. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as i do. It's not an all day vape, as it is very rich, but it is a good desert vape IMO.

    BTW, thanks to all of you guys for the info I have garnered over the last few weeks, of research into DIY. You have all helped tremendously.

    Hey Redbox,

    Thanks for the recipe. Sounds like a good one!

    However, I'm a little concerned about your understanding of nic concentration. Surely you didn't buy nic at 150 mg/ml? Perhaps you can clarify what you mean by 50 mg bonus?

    I ordered 100mg nic, and received 150 mg nic, which I consider a 50% bonus.

    My understanding of nic concentration is just fine, my explanation however may not be.

    Well then, color me confused, lol.
    I wasn't aware that any vendor sold nic over 100 mg/ml to the general public. Guess I wouldn't want to go there personally, but to each their own.

    It's labeled as 100mg, but when I run a test on it, it is actually 150mg. , sorry for the confusion. I figure that since I am blending it anyway, I get to use less nic base, because it's stronger. So for the same money I get 50% more nicotine. That's a bonus where I come from, and am happy for it, I am also glad that I got the nicotine test kit, or I would be vaping at 22mg when I want to vape at 15mg.

    Ok, now I'm understanding where you're coming from.

    However, it's a little disconcerting that your nic base is testing so much higher over what it should be.

    I hope that you reported the discrepancy to the vendor?

    You may consider it a gift, but how about somebody who didn't test it and thinks they've cut it to 36mg, but it's really at 54mg.

    ETA: This really is a serious matter. Please report this nic issue to the vendor ASAP.

    Someone reported it to them, and they messaged me, and we are in the process of an exchange. Concerns addressed!!!

    To Iffy: It's in my post, you just have to look harder. But I'm with you on the sentiment.
