Talking with Eric Buss (Squid Vapor LLC), he mentioned a savory custard tobacco, and that got me thinking of a brew. So this is my tribute to him for all he does for the community.
Let this one steep 7 days minimum for the custard to settle into the mix.
(Cap) Vanilla Custard - The main custard note.
(TPA) Pecan - Added for that savory nutty note to compliment and take a little of the sweetness off of the RY4. I initially thought of using (TPA) Pistachio, but I thought that may make the recipe too much like Wayne Walker's Stacio-RY4-U with a hint of pipe tobacco added.
(TPA) RY4 Double - Used here for that caramel tobacco note. I started at 3.25%, but it was too far forward. This version is dialed back to 2% with the (FE) Captain bumped up from 2.25% to 3.5%
(FE) Captain - (Using ECX's description) sweet pipe tobacco flavor with hints of maple and coconut. I needed to round out the tobacco with a nice pipe blend, and I really enjoy FE Captain.
(FE) Tobacco Absolute - Added to "dirty" up the tobacco and round off the edges of the coconut, maple and caramel notes from the Captain and RY4 Double.
Peanut Butter Banana Tobacco
Thought of a Banana RY4 dessert style tobacco so i went trying the classic ry4's, butterscotch and caramel but found TPA's Peanut Butter screaming at my face so here it is.
TPA Peanut Butter Is a great peanut butter with some flaws but here does his job perfectly. Adds a bit of butter to the mix as well as a chocolaty note that goes really well with bananas.
TPA Banana Cream was another obvious choice for me i love it and its so easy to use, has good creaminess at 3% and the banana is exactly were i wanted it.
TPA Ry4 Double ok.. i wanted an ry4 and went with the classic, at 3% adds a bit of tobacco like note with caramel.
FLV Caramel is more of a brown sugar than a caramel at 0.5% helps the caramel from Ry4 to get deeper and adds that brown sugar sweetness to everything.
Finally FLV Red Burley is my favourite flavorah tobacco, and in this case helps giving the recipe a slight tobacco note without having to steep the ry4 for 2-3 weeks, wich was one of my goals for this recipe. Has some nuttiness that plays awsamely well with peanut butter and a slight frutiness that goes nicely with banana, (Red Burley is aswame)
I let it sit for 3 days but after a week or so it gets better.
The more you let it the better it gets.
This is a nice sweet Carmel peanut butter tobacco vape.
Ry4 Double with FLV Cured makes a nice tobacco flavor with hints of Carmel.
TFA peanut butter is my Favorite works well here and the Maple syrup enhances the sweetness. ( you can sub DX PB).
Cereal 27 adds a nice Grittiness to it which I love.
The Vanilla Swirl lightens the notes to make the flavors work so well together. Allow about 3 days of a steep. Mixed at 60/40 as this is my go to. Mix how you like.
Ever since I started vaping I've been fascinated by TFA Pistachio, the smell is just amazing, but I have never been able to find a recipe with a satisfying strong pistachio flavor. I have done countless bad attempts trying to nail down the Pistachio/RY4 combo (made famous by Charlie Noble), but almost all of them have ended up in the sink.
I did however have an epiphany when the legendary @shyndo released his recipe for his "Karl Custard" oneshot, where he not only uses TFA Pistachio at 8%, but also wrote an incdedibly helpful note on how to tackle the sharpness that such a high percentage of that flavour brings.
As I did not possess the flavors he is using, I started making my own version with 8% TFA Pistachio as a starting point, and with his notes as help. I also got some very encouraging words from him on the DYI_eJuice discord: "dont be afraid to push shit just because some pretentious bastard tells you he gets "off notes"".
So here I am. PUSHING!
TFA Pistachio: I set out to copy Shyndo by using this at 8%, to really bring that powerful yet creamy pistachio note.
TFA RY4 Double: At 4% it is just enough to force mute the heavy pistachio note to a perfect level, while bringing that lovely caramel tobacco note to the mix.
DFS Holy Vanilla: Creamy eggy wonderful vanilla. At 2% this also helps take the edge off the pistachio, but mainly blends it together to a lovely vanilla pistachio cream that you just want to eat out of a spoon.
FLV Milk & Honey: I would say this is optional, but I think it brings a complexity to the whole mix with that dark sweetness that works very well with the pistachio and tobacco notes.
Again I just have to thank @shyndo, who not only came up with this amazing recipe (Karl Custard), but also went out of his way to answer my questions and gave me invaluable advice on how to develop recipes. So please make sure to check out his Karl Kustard
Regarding steeping, this only gets better the longer it steeps. After a month this is incredibly tasty and the pistachio has blended perfectly with the rest.
If you want to add more tobacco flavor, don't add more RY4, but instead add @Fear 's Cardinal combo: 0.25% FLV Kentucky Blend and 0.75% FLV Red Burley.
TFA RY4D can be swapped for DFS Holy Grail RY4 at 7%, if you want you can also lower DFS Holy Vanilla slightly to make up for the extra cream that the Holy Grail brings.
Nowadays i'm hitting the streets way more often with a POD in my hand. When I'm at home - i'm back on my RDA's. However I've been chasing a creamy smooth cigar like sweet tobacco. But something that would register on the palate in a POD.
This is all that, its a cigar like tobacco (Kentucky + Red Burley) - backed up with a THICC and dirty cream (RY4 Double + CAP Sweet Cream). With a good Vanilla to hold the two together (Holy Vanilla).
Sweeten to taste - I like it at 0.2% SS.
Before I started mixing, I used to vape FW Pralines and Cream at at LEAST 20% and a ton of sweetener. I didn't know any better but I loved it anyways. Pralines and Cream and FW Butterscotch became my favorite single flavors to vape. This mix came from the gut as most of my mixes do and I've learned to write them down. Sweet, nutty, rich , and creamy. Takes me back to the Good O'le Vaping days of 2013. When Provaris cost 300 bucks and you just had to have one. Just before the crazy eyed sweaty son of the Vape Shop owner was wrapping 32 gauge Kanthal free hand around some silica wick and telling me how great it was. And sure enough I'd find myself fumbling around and having to go ask sweat kid to help me. Trying to reach that "perfect vape" experience. Anyways... This one is really nice after the shake and I don't like most recipes off the shake. Went back and added a bit of Super Sweet to make the creamy stand out. Feel free to leave out or sub for your liking.
