    @tazzle and everyone — sharing a DiY recipe that a friend and Master Mixer @I'mnotZak mixed for me. Please feel free to make any adjustments to suit your taste. This particular flavor originated out of Belfast.

    Gingerbread ICS
    Capella Gingerbread 3.5%
    Capella Graham Cracker 1.5%
    Inawera Biscuit 1%
    TFA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream 3%
    TFA Vanilla Swirl 2.5%
    FA Meringue 0.75%

    Recommended steep time: 3 weeks or to suit your taste

    Savory ejuices are one of my favorites.

    Will definitely give this one a whirl when I can pick up the flavors I don't have! Thank you, and I'mnotZak! <3

    Nice, I have one gingerbread vape I make from time to time & really enjoy. This one looks really good. I think I'll go mix it now. Thanks for posting... :D

    Thank you @NotSoMini, @tazzle, and everyone who posted such kind comments. This mix was still a challenge even though the original (Out of Belfast as mentioned by Mini) listed the flavors without %'s on the bottle. I made about 6 different versions with varying flavor %'s before settling in on the recipe posted on this thread. I also added the FA Meringue to round out the mouthfeel and this flavor was not listed on the original mix. ( I find myself adding FA Meringue @ .50-.75% to just about every bakery recipe that I mix.) The interesting thing is that another ECT friend, @chanelvaps prefers the version below. She likes the throat hit that I think is due to the higher % CAP Gingerbread. As mini mentioned, the mix needs a few weeks to settle and blend. I find it "ginger" heavy when vaped fresh. I also find that the CAP Gingerbread takes on a "ginger ale" taste above 4.5%. I have posted the other version below in the event anyone would like to give it a whirl.

    Gingerbread ICS V2
    Capella Gingerbread 4.5%
    Capella Graham Cracker 1.5%
    Inawera Biscuit 0.75%
    TFA Vanilla Bean Ice Cream 4%
    TFA Vanilla Swirl 1.5%

    Happy mixing friends!

    BTW, I don't consider myself a master mixer by any stretch however, I really enjoy DIY and will gladly accept the very kind compliment!!:)

    What the Master Chef said is true that I gave him the ingredients minus the percentages. The vendor's website has a tab that says "What's in it?" and when you click on it, it does list the various flavors. This is the first vendor that I am aware of that is forthright in listing all of the ingredients.

    3 weeks today... :D Just loaded it up & all I can say is WOW, this is so good! If you like gingerbread, you need to make this one! I did make one sub, CAP VBIC instead of TFA... :cool:

    I'm really glad you are enjoying the mix! Your 3 week steep matched exactly what @NotSoMini has documented. Did you use the CAP VBIC at the same % as the TFA?

    Enjoy!

    OK, I bought the needful Capella stuff (I hope Graham Cracker V2 isn't out of bounds), and will be giving this one a spin shortly (maybe tonight, since I have to wait 3 weeks for it)!

    I've used GC v1 & 2 and don't notice a lot of difference... YMMV.

    You can always sample it at different intervals as taste is subjective. For myself I found it was subtle after steeping for approximately a week or so.

    No worries, I'm only fake-grousing. I've got a pretty long line of new mixes and new-flavor tests to sample, so it may take more than a month before I get to this one anyway. But I DID put it together last night, so it'll be waiting for me!

    Thanks for posting it, and thanks to @I'mnotZak for cooking up the clone!

    I took it along on my business trip this week. I meant it to be my morning flavor, but it's really an ADV. I used the original version @NotSoMini posted, very well steeped. Extremely good and it's now on my permanent hit list. Great job!!!
