Appreciate the warning though................
Power company recording says trees and wires down. There isn't even a breeze...............
Straight line winds can be a small corridor of high winds that knock down trees. Or it could be dead trees like my neighbor's.
Came while I was out of town. May make a bottle tomorrow. Trying to decide what direction to go. I really bought it to go with one of my teas. Maybe add a little hangsen italian cream?
Found these notes FLV Persimmon : DIY_eJuice
To my rescue! TY!!
They suggested 6 drops to 10 ml...any idea how many ml or % that is?
Then I would guess dead tree/branch.
Most likely. Took the wires down and put 300 folks without power.
Without counting drops per ml I would guess .1ml-.2ml
Going with 20 drops per ml. 6/20 = 3/10 = .3ml, and 20 drops per ml is usually wrong so .1-.2ml would give you room to err on the light side to add more later.
Oh my! That's very different
Never mind, stick with drops unless you have better measuring methods than I do.
They tested at 1 drop per 10ml.
I'm thinking it's 1%, so 0.3 mls for a 30 ml batch. That's based on punching numbers into eJMU until I got to 6 drops, which also uses 20 drops per ml. But yes, starting lower is better than winding up with liters from diluting it!
Flavor ReviewFLV Persimmon self.DIY_eJuice

Setup: Recoil w/ flavor barrel, Dual 15 wrap 26g 3mm Nifethal 70 coils @.17 ohms. 60w power, 450F temp limit. Full Cotton Wicks.
Testing: FLV Persimmon @ %1 and 1 drop per 10ml (about .25%), 60/40 VG/PG, Steeped 17 days.
Flavor Description: An interesting, tart, juicy, and sweet relatively authentic soft persimmon flavor with a solid throat hit. Throat hit is on par with something like FA Passion Fruit, with the same kind of acidic edge. Flavor itself is like a cross between a tart peach and sweet plum with an earthy, spicy peel note.
Inhale is tart and sharp, and on the lighter side of density. Bit of a sharp, acidic sensation on the tongue. Solid, natural tasting stone fruit sweetness. Exhale has peach up front. Closer to a sharp, slightly floral peach like FA White Peach but with an added bit of realistic juiciness. Deeper, more "red" plum sweetness underneath that. Slightly spicy, tart, top notes with a pleasant earthy edge. Sweetness tastes really natural to raw fruit. A bit light on density for the actual flavor, but the sweetness tastes pretty solid. Harsh, acidic throat hit.
Off-flavors: Fairly close to a soft persimmon. I don't have a ton of experience with soft persimmons, and no experience with the harder candied or pickled varieties, so as always YMMV. It's been a minute since I've had a raw persimmon, but it's actually really close with some of that acidity pushing towards the astringent edge to persimmons. Anything "off" here is fairly realistic.
Throat Hit: Oh boy. This might be a problem. I get a pretty solid throat hit on this and something that feels a lot like heart burn afterwards. I think people have a bit of varying sensitivity to throat hit, and I will say this doesn't taste any more acidic than TFA Pineapple or harsher than TFA Juicy Peach. So it may not be a dealbreaker for you.
When in doubt it's always a good idea to start low.
I learned something new today.Adding the 1% Scotch Whiskey to my Basil Rhubarb mix was a great idea. It would have otherwise been just another all fruit recipe that doesn't work well for me. The low level Whiskey added a nice overall flavor to the mix . I may actually drop it to .5% next time.
First reviewer seemed to have a sensitivity to this kind of flavor. I was going by the last response. I like a lot more flavor than you,so I will try 6. I can always adjust it later. They did note it’s good with baccy, so bonus for you tobacco lovers
“Smell from Bottle: Very realistic, sweet honeyed succulent smell. However, it does smell a little stronger than the actual fruit…. Almost like a candy-ish smell to it
At 2 drop/10ml: There isn’t much taste, very faint and light. However, you can taste the sweetness, but it is very subtle.
At 4 drops/10ml: Now I get more of the sweet honeyed flavor… a very delicate, moist fleshy taste
At 6 drops/10ml: At 6 drops this is where I think the flavor shines, however you could probably go a little higher with the flavor. I find the vape to be very delicate and smooth. The sweetness is very close to the actual fruit and the flavor is spot on.”
NOW I see that pesky % . That’s what I get for trying to read while my husband is talking
Hope you like it
