I pre-mix my nic base at 6% nic. PG/VG and nic.
I have a rather strange mix sitting in front of me. I've been looking at it for several days. It's not a cheesecake or a tobacco blend. I'm pretty sure it's too sweet but I think I'm going to try a small bottle anyway. Ya never know.......
I mix my nic base down from 100, to a bit over my preferred level on the nic, and a bit less on the PG. Flavorings will lower the nic a tad, while raising the PG % a tad as well. Flavors go in the bottle (or whatever you mix in), top up with the base, done.
Well, except for the waiting
I was mixing up a new 60ml bottle today and was struck with a question. For those of you that use TFA Pistachio, what % are you using and with how many flavors? I mixed some with simply cake and sweet tobacco and used about 6-7% pistachio with about 3-4% of the other two and about 1% shisha vanilla. I was just wondering what % other folks are using pistachio at.
Mixed up 30ml of this today... Adapted from a recipe by MysticRose on ELR...
Cheesecake Wheel Slice 2 - Toasted Coconut (WIP)
Toasted Coconut Cheesecake (PUR) 2.5%
New York Cheesecake (PUR) 2.5%
Cheesecake Graham (PUR) 2%
Italian Cream (Hangsen) 1.5%
Coconut Candy (TFA) 1%
Vanilla Ice Cream (LB) 0.5%
Biscuit (INW) 0.5%
It will likely need some adjustment, but we'll see...
I generally use Pistachio (TFA) @ 2 - 3 % and typically add Almond (FA) @ 0.75 - 1% to round it out but I've seen quite a few recipes that call for it higher...
You figure out what it is? I’ve had a few that just got named “random fruit mix” ... couldn’t figure them out. That began my self-enforced label requirement, not just marker on a bottle that smears off. If it’s crappy, at least I know what it is and can avoid making it again
Thanks for the input. How much higher have you seen other recipes use? Can you give me a general “guesstiment” of the average % people use tfa pistachio?
I usually use it at 5-6% alone or 2-3 with another nut.
That looks good but I can't vape coconut.
I'll name it something. Not my usual mix. It has cream and custard and vanilla.............etc
I use the pistachio with pistachio cream, usually 3% each iirc.
I switched to sleeping for 3rd shift so I could make infusion because reasons.
I should be able to get some mixing stuff done in these 2 nights/mornings.
Curious how sleeping for 3rd shift will blend with infusion. 3rd is my natural sleep system, always has been. If I end up not sleeping all weekend and not being extra sick because of it I may have to keep it up for future infusions.
I know I can get more done around the house 3rd shift (but not cleaning, never cleaning).
Fran have you tried a mix using chocolate mousse and chunks both yet? Think I'm going to try one, maybe add a cream or two as well.
The usual suspects:
Strawberry (INW Shisha Strawberry + FA Juicy Strawberry)
Blueberry (FA Bilberry + TFA Wild Blueberry)
Chocolate (FLV Deutsch Chocolate)
I would say you could add just about anything you like. I think I meant to try more than just these 3 but it seems I haven't made any milkshake base since January.
No but that's a good idea. I'll have to think on that. Ty
Thanks I didn't think of chocolate
I've seen it as high as 7% in a recipe, PISTACHIO RY4-U by [ENYAWREKLAW], on ELR, as an example. Over there, the median is 3% in recipes & 7% as a single flavor. Hope that helps ya...
