I may try a small mix with the regular plum. I find the Smoked Plum wicked sweet.
I was thinking amber with anything like pom or cranberry. Your description of amber matches mine, indescribable.
I like it but I'm not getting much in the way of plum from Smokey Amber Plum at 3 weeks. I might add TFA Plum next time, but I don't think that tasted like plum when I tested it either. I think I'll have to get into adding things like cherry and sour.
Now there's a good idea. I'll try it with the FLV cranberry. Maybe it can improve the cranberry taste...........
What % Amber should I use?
That's an odd one, since it's not something you normally eat or drink that I can think of. Watch out for the dinosaur DNA.
I used 1% in the Smokey Amber Plum and it's forward. In the Pornegranate it took 2% to make it noticeable.
Ty. I'll go with the 1%
I mixed some FLV Cranberry with Amber - after a nice long steep, I dumped it. FLV Cranberry and I will NEVER develop a relationship.
That gets my hopes up
@hittman and @Sugar_and_Spice I wonder if some Pom mixed into the cran-apple just might "fix" it. I am still enjoying the recipe I posted but the Fuji is strong and the mix is more apple than cranberry though I do taste both. I am also going to try mixing Fuji and INW Two Apples to see what happens. You never know what might make magic!
I have a sample bottle steeping right now with the following
10% TFA cranberry
2% two apples
1% FE lemon
1% inw cactus
You guys have some interesting flavors. I tend to pick things I like to eat or drink or (once upon a time) smoke.
Like they say, you never know until you try it! Small batches rule in those circumstances.
Pam, Pom may well offset the Fuji depending on what % were used initially.
I think Fuji and INW 2 Apples mixed together would be great, so really easy on both.....
Also, been meaning to ask if you have done any mixes with Nectarin? I love a good peach flavor and it seem TPA is about the only one that has a decent one. I have yet to try that one. The flavorah got terrible reviews.
I was making more of my fav peach juice last night and wondered if I could somehow improve on it. I have a very simple recipe for mine. I use 6 different peaches all at 2% each. Takes from about 3 weeks to 6 weeks to steep but it is worth the wait to me. Luckily I still have enough from last 240ml bottle to make it through.....lol
I seriously suggest starting FA Fuji @ .5-1%, especially in mixes. Fuji just keeps getting stronger. It is a great flavor taste wise but wants to be boss......lol
I like strong flavors and am still playing with the Fuji so am not sure where I will land. I was thinking of trying 2% Fuji and 1.5% INW Two Apples. That might be too high on both, esp. if I want to highlight the cranberry. I suspect that is the problem that some are having with Fuji drowning out the cranberry. Maybe I will try going lower on both and keeping the cranberry at 7% and see how that turns out. If I want more apple, I can always add it later. Thanks!
The other day I was surfing sites looking for suggested percentages and found some people who were referring to FA as Flavor Apprentice, but using FA in their percentage lists. I've always abbreviated The Flavor Apprentice as TFA and FA for Flavourart. There's quite a difference in mix strengths between the two. Anyone seen that? If you're not paying attention the percentages you pick up from some sites could ruin a mix. FA is usually pretty highly concentrated compared to most.
I added additional info on my last post........just wanted to be sure you see it...
Yes, and I think NR started that stuff. I had ordered flavors from them from TPA and the bottles are marked as Fa. Talk about confusing......don't know who really started this but I think it was totally unnecessary......and not funny in the least.
One more point FA(FlavourArt) with all caps and Fa(lowercase a) is what is being passed around as TFA. Kinda sneaky if you ask me....
@Sugar_and_Spice - I don't have any nectarine flavors. I do have several peach flavors but haven't played with them much yet. I am a peach kind of girl, being born and raised in peach country. Nectarines are considered an inferior cousin in peachland.
Raisin Rum Bacco Cheez
FLV Raisin Rum 3 drops (30 ml)
TFA Vanilla Bourbon 1%
TFA Cheesecake/graham 2%
TFA Graham Clear 1%
HA Ry3 5%
This is very tasty though it was too sweet for me. My fix was successful however.
