i did another hops mix, it took a few nights of tinkering and shit, but it turned out nicely and i'm honestly over trying to nitpick some nuances. mix it up if you like green fruit shit or something a bit weird. there wasn't any real thought behind this, i am not trying to replicate anything real, just wanted to add a bunch of shit i like together. here's the amalgamation of that. notes below.
flv yakima hops - it's at a high percentage here, but don't let that deter you. you'll hardly taste it. it gets buried in all the fruit. what it does at this percentage is create some weird, funky, earthy, dirty depth to the fruits involved. that's about it. if you like pears or apples, this will appeal to you, and the hops will just bring some extra shit to the party.
inw lime / cap lemon lime - using inw lime here to just bump up the citrus notes from cap lemon lime, while also adding some extra tartness to the mix overall. the use of pear in this mix really sweetens this shit up quick, so the extra boost of bitter/sour from inw lime was necessary. cap lemon lime is just something i ain't used in ages, and i forgot how good it was as a base to recipes such as this. nothing crazy going on with thought process on this.
tpa pear / fa pear - obviously i've been doing this combination, in different percentages, for a long ass fuckin time. i decided to go opposite to my norm here though, as i wanted that crisp realism from tpa pear to stand up front. i'm just using fa pear in this to add some juiciness to the hops, and help give some dimension to the sweetener. easy.
fa fuji - at first, i was using inw anton apple in place of fa fuji, however i wasn't getting the apple bite that i wanted from that. granted, i know inw anton is a powerhouse of a flavor, but fa fuji can't be muted as easily by the other flavors. that's pretty much it. i wanted apple notes, this is how i got them to stay in the mix.
cap super sweet - this is kinda optional. i don't think it's entirely necessary, but i think that it does help negate some of the offensive notes you usually can pick up from yakima hops. without the super sweet, i was noticing just a touch of unpleasant vegetal flavor on the back end of this mix. it seems that adding the super sweet prevented that. and hey, i'm a cuck now that likes using sweeteners.
steep time - this is really good day one, i honestly think it's best off a shake. everything stays fairly separated and it feels brighter off the shake. it's still solid after a few days, i haven't had a bottle last longer than three days, so i can't say much about its longevity. but whatever. mix it in smaller batches, vape it quick.
alright that's it. mix it if you want or don't. i haven't dropped anything new in a minute and i like this one so fuck it. enjoy.
In honor of Game of Thrones' final season, I've concocted this bloody mess of redness.
As you can see, it's all red fruits plus a red flower.
Cranberry and Raspberry provide red tart,
Dragonfruit provides its staple fruit amplification,
Fuji provides that red juiciness,
Pomegranate and Sweet Strawberry provide their red sweetness,
And Hibiscus lends it's silky, red floral aspect.
All in all it's a beautifully full, silky, tangy, sweet rush of treachery
A floral, peach green tea.
FLV Eisai Tea has trumped FE Green Tea as the ultimate Green Tea flavor, thanks to notes from /u/ID10-T on his Green Tea Kitkat 2019 recipe. It's vibrant and sparkly and doesn't carry a perfumey aftertaste and throat sting that FE Green Tea seemed to. I actually tried using FW Green Tea when I was just starting out, and god that stuff is vile.
FLV Peach and FLV Peach Gummy form the top note, thanks to some recipe help from /u/stuckinrussia.
CAP Hibiscus was a tremendous improvement over FW Hibiscus. I could barely use more than 2 drops before the entire thing became engulfed in it. CAP Hibiscus comes through without harm and is just awesome.
I wanted to compliment the darker, bitter floral that Hibiscus was with something bright and sweet, so I went with FA Lavender. After trying it out for the first time, I'm in love. There's so any different applications that I want to put it to, so this is just the beginning.
With the florals and the tea and the unavoidable dryness of peach, I had to juice this up as best as I could without diminishing the profile. So, I threw in some FA Fuji, as is tradition, and a little bit of INW Raspberry. To soften them up without becoming too noticeable brings in TFA Dragonfruit. It all just settles as this interesting fruit mesh below the dominant Peach.
As delicious as it all was, I felt it needed just a tinge of sweetener, so in comes FW Sweetener.
The WS-23 throws off nothing, so a significant improvement over TFA Koolada, and for my first experience with WS-23, it is amazing. Fluffy icyness throughout. 0.5% was a tad too much, so I dialed it down to 0.25% and it's perfect for me.
Feel free to adjust koolant and sweetener to taste.
A smooth, juicy pear candy. Remember as a kid eating Pez candies? Imagine a handful of Pez textured candy mixed with the ripest, juiciest pear picked straight from the most bountiful pear tree all whipped together is a refreshing, candy textured eliquid. A great all day vape for you fruit/candy lovers.
FA Fuji is the King of Apples as far as I'm concerned. At 2% it's a solid, bright, crisp and sweet apple. It's fairly realistic, but works very well in this candy-esque profile.
INW Two Apples is tart and sweet. It's heavier on the green apple flavor and pairs exceptionally well with the Fuji to help flesh out our apple in this mix.
DIYFS Holy Holy Grail RY4 is absolutely fantastic. It's a thick and creamy caramel. I don't get much tobacco from this, just heavenly, velvety, creamy caramel with notes of brown sugar and vanilla. Super sticky, too.
INW Milk & Honey is the perfect accent to our caramel. It's dark and creamy. You get touches of honey and brown sugar that play wonderfully with the apples and already very present and pleasant caramel.
Simple Mix, and it's simply delicious.
Taking some inspiration from various Asian fruits and floral notes, I think I may have found my new all day vape. I saw TFA Cherry Blossom and wanted to see how to work that ingredient in a recipe for a nice, sweet floral note. I feel it plays well with the other ingredients.
The overall profile initially has an interesting smoky fruit/floral note on the inhale, the exhale focuses more on the citrusy side with more focus coming through on the WF Starfruit. FA Fuji. and CAP Kiwi. FA Mandarin helps bring a citrus note to the overall profile and FA Lychee adds more of a little juicy mouth-feel imo. Off the bat, it may be a little harsh on the throat, but after a day or two, it really mellows out.
Hope you guys enjoy and comments would be appreciated!
Delicious Grape Jelly Gummy!!
I tried creating a few grape recipes this year and they all ended up with a weird 'coiny'/copper aftertaste, so I almost gave up on grape.
This has perfect balance on the grape without leaving a weird aftertaste thanks to INW Grape and Jelly Candy Combo. This is a Delicious Grape Candy Shake and Vape that will leave any grape fans with a Smile!!
I dont think this one needs much of a explanation. Just mix it up if you like grape or gummy Candy!!
I wanted a nice warm, subtly spiced apple cider. I could drink those little cider packets by the gallon during the winter. I find that most "jug" cider has a metallic taste so I usually prefer the packets unless I open up the wallet for the really good pressed cider.
Hangsen Apple Mix is my new favorite concentrate for apple cider mixes. It's a little artificial so I add some crisp authentic apple with FA Fuji. The liquid amber turns them both a little more towards cooked and adds some depth and warmth.
TFA Brown Sugar is here to mingle with the inherent darkness in Liquid Amber and turn it a bit sweet and slightly caramelized.
The obvious choice for cinnamon is the king, FLV Rich Cinnamon. I use it super low here so it doesn't take over the mix and just accents it.
The Apple Mix, Fuji and Rich Cinnamon together can go a bit in the dry direction so I'm boosting the juiciness with FA Pear. It also adds just a little depth to the apple.
I like a little orange zest simmered with my warm spiced apple cider. It brightens up the apples and accents the cinnamon really well. I chose FW Tangerine because it's a subtle sweet tangerine that doesn't bully other flavors. It does the job of brightening this mix without being obvious.
This is good shake and vape but give it an overnight steep to get really saturated flavor.
Crisp and juicy with the perfect sweet-tart snap, a very realistic Fuji apple, (I swear I can taste the skin of the Apple, and the sweet perfect fruit underneath) natural sugar flavor you'd expect from an apple without tasting artificial.
