    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... :D 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... :cool:

    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... :cool:

    You figure out what it is? I’ve had a few that just got named “random fruit mix” :blush:... 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.

    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.

    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... :cool:
