Too funny Mixed your Nutty Stixx recipe this morning.
Looking for new recipes or just recipes ideas of the not too sweet variety. Something with a cheesecake or tobacco base is always good. Boozy,nutty,chocolate,cereal,all good. Fruit is good as well as long as it has a base flavor. I need a jumpstart.......my thinker is broken.
I mixed up another bottle of that too but I'm going to let it steep longer this time. Not that it wasn't good after a week, I just think it might be better after 2 or 3 weeks.
I'm still waiting for the other Stixx Mixx flavors I ordered - they should be here Monday or Tuesday. Also, I was reading somewhere that all Stixx Mixx are not N.E.T.'s. Some are extracts.
I only have 3. A+,Aged Burley and Whiskey Cavendish.
I've got the A+ and I have the Whisky Cavendish, Butter Rum Cavendish and Canadian Virginian on the way. I'm really hoping the Canadian Virginian actually has that Canadian cigarette taste.
After that last mix I did with the A+ and butterscotch I'm starting to think the Stixx Mixx N.E.T.'s are better as a one-shot type flavor. Complex enough to be used alone.
The A+ and Aged Burley are good solo. But then again so are the Hangsen tobaccos and they're cheaper. I'm so far not impressed with the Stixx Whiskey Cavendish.
The apple honey is a bit muddy in a tank so going to take out the marzipan and bump both apples to 2%. Thinking I may sub the de leche as well.
Ah yes good old bottle wash day. I really try to stay on top of mine before the thin layer of baked on crud of the last film of eliquid emerges.... I am not always successful. LOL.
Fortunately, I seem to have no problems getting labels off, it's more like keeping labels ON. Masking tape and a really new black sharpie seems to be doing the trick the MOST so far....
Mixed up 30ml of this today...
Cheesecake Wheel Slice 1 - Caramel Toffee Swirl (WIP)
New York Cheesecake (PUR) 4%
Cheesecake Graham (PUR) 2%
Toffee Ice Cream (VTA) 1.75%
Italian Cream (Hangsen) 1.5%
Caramel Toffee (Hangsen) 1.25%
Vanilla Ice Cream (LB) .5%
Biscuit (INW) 0.5%
It will likely need some tweaks, but it's a start...
What percentage did you mix it at and how long did you give it to steep?
I use white office labels, sharpie, then wrap with clear/scotch tape. I had success with that in the lab on chemical solutions in droppers, and it seems durable for juices. Labels have to be soaked off though. If I’m in a hurry, I’ll label over the first one.
I use a Brother P-Touch thingy.
If I don't re-make a flavor I can re-name it once by using a Sharpie over it and cover with clear tape.
Peels off nicely.
this stuff sounds complicated.... all I do is soak some tobacco in Everclear and add nic and VG and evaporate the Everclear off...
kewl... another NOLA person...
and we joined on the same day ( different year tho)
That sounds like too much work
Besides, I can't get Everclear here in Canada.
The difference is, you’re organized and I’m lazy . I write the recipe on the bottle and make adjustment notes on the label. If I’m happy with it at the end, I transfer the final recipe to the notebook. I’m still in the early mixing stages of moving from good recipes to “wow, I want to make a litre of this”. So, the recipe is their only name so far.
not really...most times it's written on a piece of paper (the recipe) and rubber banded to the bottle
It’s not complicated really. I usually use and adjust recipes someone else created. Mixing is a pretty quick process
...I am so ashamed
