    Things must have come together somehow today cause I got through trying several juices. Got some fails and some wins. Vaping an older Strawberry Cheesecake that's rather tasty right now.

    Looking through my mixed recipes and found one that really puzzles me. Guava Cheesecake with no Guava in it...................

    I find TFA DF to have a nice tart note. I am constantly amazed at how different all of our impressions are of any given flavor.

    Then I'll just order 10ml LDPE for flavors and replace them yearly. Thank you for your help.

    I finally dug out my WF roasted pecan and hazelnut and cream. I never did single flavor testers on them. I remember someone saying that they liked the hazelnut solo but don’t remember the percentage and if it needed to steep.

    The WF Hazelnut and Cream, I do @ 6% and vape it the next day. You could try out a tester because I have known some people to vape it as soon as its mixed. It will continue to develop as you vape it and stays steady for several weeks. At about 6 weeks or so its should be fully steeped and becomes a good flavor to mix with other ingredients if you want. Me I just keep vaping its goodness.

    Can you tell I love this flavor?


    I also use the WF roasted pecan, it does have cream in it @ 5% and needs maybe a week to taste good.

    You're welcome!
    You might want to check DropperBottles.com for his prices on the 10mL size. You have to get 100, but he's got good prices. There's also an on-going code there for us. IIRC it's either DIY or ECF.

    PackagingOptionsDirect.com also has a 20% off sale going on now...when your order includes bottles and closures. Code is: BETTER2GETHER, used at Checkout. Ends tomorrow night.

    I did a shake and vape on the HC at 6% and mixed it with peg400. It was harsh and overwhelming in the enthion. The RP was pretty strong too. I’m going to put them away for a week after diluting them some with vg. I probably should have just used vg to begin with since it’s what I’m used to. I might go ahead and mix two more with vg to compare.

    I haven't used the PEG400 so no ideas here. I always waited a day or two before trying the HC. I mix mine in 50/50 pg/vg, so if you are using max vg then maybe a week to steep is good.

    Let us know.

    :)

    I had an unexpected success (Fran, skip right over, it’s sweet ;)). Caramel cinnamon roll, sweet rice, smoked butterscotch and a teeny bit (0.1%) coconut. Can’t wait for it to settle out. Cross between a sticky bun and rice pudding

    Pretty good yer-self, CeeCee!:laugh:
    I really like the interactive function of your first link. Thanks for sharing!!:thumbs:

    Another great resource, for anyone who still enjoys reading, is the book titled "The Flavor Bible: The Essential Guide to Culinary Creativity, Based on the Wisdom of America's Most Imaginative Chefs." It is a huge (nearly 1,000 page) tome; but, for those who have the patience to spend some time with it, it can be revolutionary. It can be found in hardcover, paperback, and digital media.

    Did you use 100% PEG? That was harsh to me.

    @Sugar_and_Spice I have a new equation for you. I have mixed 2 30ml bottles of HA Italian Cream at 1.5% this time. When it comes time to put it in a recipe do I do it the same way? (10ml plus .02%)

    Don't see why not.

    I don't remember reading how the last one turned out for you? Did you post about it?

    If you want, I can check the numbers for you, Just give me what % of each ingredient you want the final recipe to be and what size bottle.

    You use peg400 in place of VG? I use PEG in place of PG and still use VG
