    Or longer steeping time.. ?

    I got a very well reviewed strawberry custard which was great in the store on a lesser rig than mine but on mine I'm just getting a weaker taste....

    I usually vape 80/20 liquids at 47.5 watts. I'm finding this liquid best right up at 60 watts but still lacking.

    I use aspire cleito tanks with .4ohm coils so should be enough power....

    First time with cleito thanks I've ever not had amazing flavour right out of a fresh bottle

    Hotwire, I have heard that tanks can make a difference to flavours of liquids.

    For example, I have some Geekvape Ammit 25's at one side. The Vaping Biker used custard liquids with them to initially review them, the results weren't that impressive. So he had a think about it and found out that other folks were using fruit liquids, tried a fruit liquid not expecting much and was massively surprised.

    And can't find much information about Vanilla, but have found out the boiling point for Vanillin. It's 285°C, that's damned hot

    yes to all of the above but in my opinion custards are one of the longer steeping flavors. You could try different tanks, certainly. You could also try waiting.

    Yes, well, for me they do need more steeping.

    Equipment has very much influence.

    I have NEVER had a store-bought juice taste the same on two different rigs. That is a big reason why I DIY now.

    I try my recipes on my tanks and adjust.

    Its vaping good now.

    I'd like it a bit creamier but is a clear liquid no colour at all.

    All my UK liquids aren't as creamy as American ones.

    American juices tend to be that little bit better from my experience. And kudos to them for it!

    Beard no 24 gonna be my next one!

    DIYing is slow to get the recipe just right...on your atomizer and tastebuds, but it pays in the end.

    I’ve found quite the opposite, too much heat brings a kind of black pepper element to custards in my experience. Lower wattage is definitely beneficial in my opinion.
