    Dan my very succinct advice on all you have said is this - give vaping time. Be patient with it. When I first started I found e-cigs to be harsh, plastic tasting and not like cigarettes, but they gave me the all important nicotine fix. It took time to really start tasting the liquids.

    I've had a see-saw struggle with my quit from cigarettes so I have a bit of experience when I say that each and every time I stopped smoking again and went back to e-cigs, e-cigs just didn't taste great but after weeks of vaping, and ONLY vaping, it got better and better to the point that a cigarette would taste strong and pungent (plus leave an awful after taste in the mouth) and e-cigs gave me a splendid deeply complex experience of taste sensation.

    Give it time, stay off the analogs and keep trialing and testing new liquids, atomizers, mods, etc. It is all part of the fun of vaping.

    Ferran Adrià also has millions of dollars worth of flavor chemistry lab at his disposal. He can also choose the best medium for his flavors: emulsion, foam, cream, etc. All E-liquids need to be in a base of PG and VG and be able to survive repeated high heatings.

    I think the manufacturers of Pepsi-Cola would like to have a chat with you. ;)

    I have no intention of asking it to be closed. I kinda like it here:)

    Maybe we'll have another NETtys in a few months...see how things shake up after people try more stuff, juices become steeped, etc. LOL.

    Maybe he has millions now, but when he got started he was pretty much like everyone else. Today his flavor creation techniques are used by ordinary chefs who do not have huge budgets. Some of his techniques can even be used at home with a minimum equipment.

    True...but, in order to recreate certain food textures, he has to do it. When it comes to recreating or capturing just a pure flavor, without the texture(s) associated with it, there is no need to use most of that stuff.

    I hear you. Definitely. I am not giving up or anything. I already like Halo's juices, so I can always use them. And today I had a conversation with one vendor who is willing to work with my ideas to try to create what I have in mind. It is going to take some time, but I am pretty confident that it can be done.

    Thank you for your support and encouragement. I appreciate it!

    Just looking in, but I don't think so. Dan is self-described "foodie". As soon as you see that, I knew it wasn't a troll.

    Foodies are very passionate about taste(s), I don't think its a troll at all, but sometimes conversation (normal flow of real conversation, not forum conversation) takes twists and turns and you do end up off topic a lot in real life.

    If this was, for instance, a topic that had movie critics about best movies, you'd expect the topic to get off topic quickly as well. Ditto with literary critics when discussing "best books". :)

    Nature of the beast. IMHO.

    Nice poll!!

    Somewhat wasted on me, I don't do tobacco very often, although I do have some Ahlusions Smooth Criminal which is *perfect*

    ...and also some Plume Room Candied Cavendish. :) I will still order again but t's a little too sweet? Sweet should always be in the background, at least for me it should be. You know it's there, but it isn't THERE THERE. This from someone who vapes desserts........but if the sweet is upfront, it would be the same in a regular dessert.......sets your teeth on edge. The most delictible sweets are subtle in their sweetness, you can feel it in your brain, your eyelashes flutter just a tad, its a chemical reaction. :)

    When it's out in front, like a cheap grocery store cookie or Little Debbie cake, you know you are not eating the "best" dessert

    Thank you Scarf for this thread. I've learned a lot and have pages of notes, really I do, along with my own extractions. Too bad my two itty bity votes didn't make the list LOL. The other NETS I have are still aging as I said I wouldn't revisit them until after Labor Day.

    I hope to get more NETs in the future as my wallet allows. Darn...my money tree is not producing a bigger harvest :laugh:

    So that somehow excludes him from staying on topic even when he was asked/suggested many times to go to a thread where what he was discussing is on topic... I don't think so. Forum etiquette is the same for all... one type of person isn't excluded from it.

    It is too early to tell how long it might take until a "beta" sample is available, but when I have it, I will let you know. I can tell you this though, it is not going to be just another NET. It is going to be "outside of the box," in a good way.

    Look at the time stamp. I posted that before all those silly troll posts started. Nobody suggested that I go to another thread, but when I was explicitly asked to stop discussing what we were talking about, I did. Interesting that you do not seem to think that the "drop" clip and comments about it were "on topic," but my discussion about NET juices was "off topic."
