    I made my raspberry cheesecake. I was going to dry burn and put a fresh wick in my Zeus x but it won’t come unscrewed for me to pull the coil out. I think it’s hanging on something but it looks to be screwed in correctly. So frustrating. I’m sweating from trying to unscrew the dang thing. :mad: So I put the new recipe on top of my key lime pie wick. I am not in the mood to recoil a new zeus x. All I taste is key lime for now.

    This is good enough for the blog @Zazie !

    It’s starting to come through now and it’s really good! Wow another successful recipe! I don’t mind a lot of flavors and I’m actually getting into using several for a more layered flavor.

    That lemon meringue pie I think really helps these fruity mixes to pop.

    Coffee thermos. Course, I used to have stuff like that happen EVERY morning The problem with coffee, for me USED to be, I had to have some to drink before I drank it to be able to drink it.

    The coffee thermos effectively solves that problem for me. For example, I knocked it over this am but that meant two drops to clean up, not an entire cup of coffee.

    I have yet to understand how one cup of coffee turns into 30 when spilled but I don't gotta worry about that no more. I love my coffee thermos SO much I have lovingly emptied it and cleaned it as I prepare the coffee to be brewed every evening and I have forgotten zero times. Eve when I was super sick.

    I feel deep empathy and sympathy for your coffee experience! :)

    Good Morning Random Mixers!

    Woohoo I feel good! I've been going through this thing where I can't sleep and feel like a tired zombie while awake. Been going on for weeks but last night I laid down and took a nap and ever since I woke up I feel great. No walking around in a fog! I hope it's not early Alzheimers, but at least it's gone for now.

    I DO need to do some mixing, running out of some stuff I mixed before.

    No lung pain, no coughing nothing!

    LOL I decided to fill my misbehaving Rose V3 (which I finally figured out how to fix, and did) with something. I did a bunch of mixes when I was pretty ill.) I was trying to decide Between "Blyryn aghh" and "BBroohininli l brul" and a few others, heh, but I figured out which one was like, my French toast mix (ah I also relabeled my flavors since I almost vaped the evil Nonna cake by mistake! So I figured out what everything was and vaped it. I used a different rhubarb and it is a bit forward, but like, it's one of those flavors where you kinda get the tastes one at a time, like Rhubarb, French toast/maple creamy finish, and I love those kinds of flavors. The rhubarb just needs to settle itself a bit.

    I am drinking my new found love which is like, 1/4 cup OJ with water. I drink it between my two cups of coffee. It tastes better than straight OJ if you ask me. Of course, I grew up drinking FROZEN OJ. That is correct. We were living in Potomac MD, I had a damn HORSE (never have a hobby that eats was my dad's verdict but he was overruled by my mother) and we were drinking those TUBES of frozen OJ.

    This is because my dad was miserly. IDK maybe he was traumatized by having 4 kids but he did the shopping, and that is what cost the least, and FORGET oh, "Frozen tube or OJ and pineapple" that cost 0.5c more per unit.

    I cannot even begin to tell you how much they suck. You would sometimes AVOID drinking OJ for some time in ORDER to not empty the container. But sometimes, you would forget and that made YOU the next manufacturing plant. To make it even worse, no matter how you shook that stuff, like, the last part would be sludgy and disgusting. As you were drinking it, you were washing the container and getting out the next OJ "tube." It would slowly BEGIN to defrost and then in a little bit (because if it defrosted completely it was GONNA leak, so you'd shove the mostly frozen OJ in the container, measure out something annoying like I believe it was 3 and 1/3 tubes of water which is hard to guestimate (fortunately it was um, not really that relevant TASTE wise) and well, you would get a wooden spoon and stir and stir. I likened it to the reverse of CHURNING butter, because instead of hopefully looking for the butter to appear in the churner so you could STOP you'd be peering through increasingly opaque water/juice to see how much of the tube had melted yet, and when it was finally invisible you could STOP.

    Forget not DOING it I think the parents had cameras or something. They would find out somehow, they would figure out like, who had drank the last of it. The punishment was you had to do it for EVERYONE for a week.

    When the husband introduced me to these odd things called "mattresses" (ours were from the great depression I think) I about died. He also introduced me to like, NORMAL OJ.

    I bet that tube stuff is what they get in Prison. Hell, one prison might be a manufacturing plant for all I know.

    But yeah, sometimes water alone is better than that OJ but YAY happy today! I don't care what is fixing me but something is!

    so threw my chocolate banana pudding back to the drawing board....
    I'd made it 7 years ago with limited flavors :p and it was good enough for me

    well...eh...it's ok...nothing special, i'll mess with it some more later
    tfa banana 2%
    tfa banana ripe 2%
    wf banana candy 3%
    diyfs chocolate (vg) 2%
    fa chocolate glazed donut 2%
    tfa graham cracker clear 1%
    vt pudding base 3%

    it's not too sweet, nice mouth feel to it, but maybe too much banana
    i like the graham cracker in there, it gives it kind of a vanilla wafer hint

    I usually shoot for 15% flavoring, but I think it may be time to drop that down to 10% and see what happens

    It's good the Green Banana one-shot has no real taste of banana to me cause I absolutely hate banana in a vape flavor.

    You’re right. One cup looked like a gallon when spilled.

    Been meaning to mix for a few weeks now, but with the weather so nice, always end out in the yard, been doing a lot of work to it this year, including a new deck and concrete patio installed.

    But finally I believe I am free to mix tomorrow afternoon.

    Question for people who create their own mixes, how do you know how much of each flavor to add? Are you just guessing from doing sft or from sources that recommend a %?

    I am thinking I want to try creating my own from scratch, but looking for some points before I do.

    I'm beginning to realize that I don't like vanilla custard, has an off taste that I can't quite put my finger on.

    IDK, I've been mixing a long time. I'd like to explain but I don't know how. In the beginning I got a lot of fails but not so much anymore.

    I just guess....
    what flavor do I want to be more dominant, make that the higher % and then try to balance out the other flavors, aim for a total flavoring of 15% (or whatever % you usually use)
    then I look up real recipes online and try to mimic those flavors with flavorings I have....or look up diy recipes to get a general idea.
