    A couple things I’d like to add...

    WW’s Real CC recipe in the link you shared, IMO, seemed to be a bit hard on my coils. It tasted okay to me but felt the strawberry was lacking. I added a few drops of razzleberry, which really seemed to complete it and tasted much better this way to me and a couple friends.

    I took so many notes in the beginning. I’m glad you mentioned this because I flipped to a section of my notebook I haven’t viewed for a while, where I had other great notes, stones, etc. All of my many notes from earlier into DIY are making so much more sense to me now! This is another strawberry base or flavor WW often uses...

    4% CAP Sweet Strawberry - 3-4% candy sweet strawberry
    2% TFA Strawberry - 1-2% green core of unripe sb, needs body
    1% Strawberry Ripe - pink or ripe part of the sb balances it out

    @PJReid (I believe it was) Posted a couple lists on another thread a month or so back. When I have more time I’ll try to find them all and bring them all together in one thread.

    I liked Catalan Cream enough I got 30ml after trying it then never mixed with it. I'm curious if it's cream enough for coffee.
    They all smell good today. The pom has toned down so it smells more like a mix.
    I don't know how long to age the smoked plum, the single 2% taster I did of it took a while to smell worth trying. Now after weeks it's lost almost all the floral notes I didn't like and I can taste smoke and plum. I made 15ml of that one so I can keep some around.

    I do think Amber and Plum was a good choice. Right now it wasn't bad dripping on a gennie wick but was bouncing between flavors so needs some time but nothing is clashing. I tried some Amber stand alone to refresh my memory and it's definitely not overpowering in the plum mix so far.

    How long would you say to steep the Smoked Plum?

    If memory serves me right the Catalan would be fine in coffee vapes.

    None at all. I know that FLV has a Brie flavor that some say mixes well with fruits. Definitely not my kind of thing but I was just trying to help. Anything I would come up with would be way too sweet for you anyway. ;)

    I can post my lists of things to avoid. Where should a thread like that be started?

    I somehow have a Cappella cappuccino flavor. I'm going to have to mix that. Any thoughts on a cream to go with it maybe (I don't do vanillas, I am considering a sweet cream flavor) and I swore no coffee, but man I LIKE cappuccino and I don't drink it much (expensive). Might be a nice vape. Suggestions welcome :)

    Yeah, I swore I'd never do "coffees" either. My first mentholated mix is coming together fairly nicely and I swore I'd never do THAT either. LOL.

    I'm not sure in a mix. I just got the flavor around when this thread started.
    I think alone it was a week before it smelled good enough to taste and weeks longer to today. To be a stable flavor based on that it could take more than a week.
    I have a bad habit of not putting dates on new mixes (I just did on this one) and my concept of time sucks.

    The mix from yesterday tasted good it just needs to meld more (I did air it out a little this morning and that did cut some of the floral). I hope it's not a long steeper. I don't mind a few days.

    I got FA Fresh Cream coming for my safer coffee needs. I never tried it but recognized it from recommendations.
    Before I used TFA Sweet Cream. I didn't love it, burning rubber that needed aged out, but was needed in small amounts. It's a less safe flavor I'm trying to get away from.

    TFA Irish Cream (I also think has undesireables) was what set my old coffee flavors off.
    I ordered FA Irish Cream with this new safer coffee trial.

    Now you got me wanting to make my old coffee recipes. May as well so I can have something to pit the new coffees against.

    Meg loves the Cap sweet cream I add to her coffee juices. I prefer the less sweet FA fresh cream or HS cream.
