    Any tart Raspberry out there or at least a less sweet one?

    I tried the PUR yesterday. Really good without that artificial fake taste. Not sweet like TFA sweet raspberry.

    I did a mix with the Pur yesterday but haven't tried it yet. Any opinions on INW Raspberry?

    I have my building supplies in an old case that has pop up drawers when you open the lid. I’m thinking the nail polish case would slide nicely onto the closet organizer shelf. I turned part of one of my closets ( the side with shelves only) into vape storage.

    Takes a long steep but Purilum rasp is a good one that isn't sweet, not really tart either; just a good all around rasp. Drop or two of lime can help as well.

    Perhaps I’m more sensitive to sweetener than I realised. Would make sense considering I don’t really eat or drink it. I agree it’s a great concentrate. It can add that something extra a mix might need.

    Given my sensitivity to sweetness I feel it's a flavor better left alone. At least for now.

    My Fizzy Gin Breeze is tasting a bit sweet this evening. Could just be my tired evening taste buds. If not there will be another tweak to the recipe. I like it so it deserves a tweak or two. Have to make it a point to try another mix tomorrow. Hopefully I can mix a couple new ones too.

    I tried the jasmine juice that I “fixed” with a little fig again tonight ( yes, I know patience is a virtue. I am not blessed with much of it). The fig “spicy” is gone. It gave the fruits and floral a warm depth without any discernible fig flavor. Bonus, it’s not sweet (I don’t think), as it took the sugary down several notches. As a food I find figs gross, so it was a leap to try it. Pleasantly surprised.

    Sorry PJ, I don't mean to put you on the spot; as I understand that you are only sharing what you read from others. But, I am guessing(?) that the recipe as you posted is for a ready-to-vape (as is) recipe? Then, if using the Trinity as a S.B. concentrate substitute; one would want to omit the deluents (PG and/or VG), and mix only:


    TFA Strawberry Ripe 54.55%
    INW Shisha Strawberry 36.36%
    FA Red Touch 9.09%

    to create a flavor base (compound concentrate), by omitting PG and/or VG... and then use that in place of a recipe's specified S.B.?

    This seems like it ought to be obvious to me, and I shouldn't even be asking, but I am just not wrapping my head around it. I feel like Charlie Brown; and my ignorance is showing. :blush::D

    I believe you are correct for a true flavor stone. The terms can be confusing at best. I mix what I call a cheesecake flavor base.It's all mixed with pg/vg/nic. All I have to do is pour it into a smaller bottle and add what other flavors I wish.

    Ahhh<light bulb moment>... I didn't even consider just adding the rest of a given recipe to the pre-made Trinity base.:facepalm: I guess I am glad I asked.:)

    I was thinking adding a 5.5% (diluted) mix, in place of a branded concentrate (at a 1:1 replacement), sounded awful weak.

    Please excuse me, while I go sit in the corner, with my funny pointed hat. :blush::facepalm::blush:
    :D
