    Hey kids. Hope everyone is having a nice afternoon!

    Question for the DIYers that premix their custard or cream bases. How long do you let them steep before adding in the final flavors.

    I think this is the way to go especially for my Lemon Custard. Even with using FE Lemon it still fades after several weeks of steeping. However it can be quite strong to start with. So I was thinking 2 weeks for the custard and then add FE Lemon then steep another week or 2 if I can find the patience which I doubt lol.

    I love this thread. I wish I had stumbled on it earlier in my DIY forays lol!

    I agree with the Cascade being an absolutely great drop in coil tank. I use one EVERY night. It’s my Go To Bed or Out And About tank. I use the GT ccell coils. Im not really fond of the GTM coils. Other than that I’m dripping all day for the most part lol!

    Me and ccells don’t get along:laugh: Different strokes... I like the flavor and all of GTM coils, they just don’t last long enough and often don’t wick right causing little burnt spots. Once they get those the coil is history. I’ve had this happen to about 50% of mine after only a few days or a week. Good ones last about 3 weeks. As I’m sure you probably know, they aren’t too cheap. I can see this being a problem for many.

    I don't like ccells either. I like coils I can rebuild.

    I have a White Strawberry Cheesecake
    TPA Bavarian Cream 1.5%
    Cap Graham 2.5%
    Cap NY Cheesecake 6%
    TFA Strawberry Ripe 3%
    TFA White Chocolate 3%

    This mix has little to no sweetness for me and no taste of fruit either. Going to remix
    TFA Bavarian Cream 1%
    Cap Graham Cracker 2%
    Cap NY Cheesecake 5%
    TFA Straberry Ripe 5%
    TFA White Chocolate 2%

    Maybe

    That’s precisely why I don’t like the GTM coils that the Cascade comes with.
    Have you tried the other GT coils? I like the GT 4 as well because it’s “best” in my vaping range of 35-45. Vaporesso just came out with a GT mesh coil that will fit the Cascade but I haven’t tried it yet.
    All my others are RBAs too.

    Yeah it’s definitely a DL tank & coil setup.

    Fran, have you tried VBIC in that cheesecake recipe or is it too sweet. I used to use 2% in the strawberry cheesecake I used to use.

    This is the tank I’m referring to and the GTM coils are a bit over half way down the page. I know there are other coils I can try with this tank. I just haven’t yet taken the time to do the homework, etc.

    So I'm lowering my WTA content to 15%, the plan is to eventually wean off the WTA. But I'm posting about it here because I have to overcomplicate things and I did it in a very roundabout way.

    First I diluted 36 mg WTA to 24 as I've been doing. Then I mixed some 24 mg unflavored and mixed that at 25% with my 24 mg WTA, so I have 24 mg liquid that is 75% WTA. Then I mixed THAT with my v2 berry mix at 20%. It maths out to 15% WTA.

    It's kinda handy to do it that way though, because it dilutes my flavoring to 80% of the original mix strength just like before. So the flavor shouldn't change.

    Maybe someone will find that interesting.

    Tomorrow I have to reduce the flavor in one of my mixes and hopefully get my cheesecake remix done.
