I've gone through over 6 completely different concentrate constellations tackling this flavour profile. This is what I've narrowed it down to, at least given the flavours I have in my arsenal. I am craving Yig with a nice cold beer so badly and have renewed motivation to get this dialed.
The Blackcurrant element:
FA Blackcurrant is the star of the currants in my opinion. It's extremely close to the one if not the same one used in Yig. On its own it's a bit dry...
In comes FA Pazzo RE aka King, this is one of my favourite flavours from the newer FA lineup. It's the blackcurrant/raspberry gummy candy with some sugar coating. It adds some body to the currant note, I want it to almost be syrupy and this seems to go in the right direction.
The Cookie element:
On to the Oatmeal Cookie aspect. I unfortunately only own one "Oatmeal" flavour and that is TPA Oatmeal Cookie. I have not had much success using this flavour initially but through much research. Reading any notes I could on this flavour it's getting easier. It's a flavour that needs help, a lot of it. It does however contain that certain something I presume required to imitate Yig.
To balance it out and shake off some of the Oatmeal Cookie off notes I've added FA Meringue to mellow it out, bring some air and sweetness into the mix. I've also added CAP Golden Butter because every cookie/custard can't stand without it. INW Biscuit also gives it that buttery goodness as well as some vanilla cookie body. Last but not least some FW Butterscotch Ripple, mainly because the first time I mixed it up to test solo it had so many notes that got me reminiscing of Yig. I think it will also add that caramelized note that is the best part of an oatmeal cookie, those crunchy caramelized edges.
I never got too much custard when vaping Yig so I decided on something lighter like TPA Vanilla Swirl along with some sweetener of your choosing and that's what I've got thus far.
Any criticism and or input would be greatly appreciated. Now that Namberjuice has closed their doors I have this burning desire to get this right finally and would appreciate any help.
One love and keep on vaping!

My favorite lemonade has always been lemon twist pink punch lemonade by quite a margin. I started by recreating that in your face lemonhead candy. Took a while but I had a breakthrough when I mixed a lemon meringue pie. FA-Meringue was the last key to the lemonhead puzzle. Unfortunately, this lemonade needs to steep for 3 days as FE-lemon takes some time to really pop. I suggest mixing this without pink barn lemonade while it steeps and then the night before it's ready throw it in and let it sit overnight. This is close to indistinguishable from the lemon twist and I would love to hear your opinions on how I did! Thanks and I hope you enjoy. I left the super sweet at the lowest acceptable amount. I personally like it at .75 on this one, but start low and increase to your liking.
so i mixed golden snzzberry custard by the diydiscord and it just honestly did not push enough flavor for me at all it was a good idea and I could tell it had very much potential so I pushed a few flavors up and added some sweetener and now it’s phenomenal. so most of this credit goes to the DIYDISCORD on alltheflavors.com .
2 years ago I challenged myself to develop a Lemon Meringue Pie recipe without using a lemon meringue pie concentrate in a recipe called "Oh You Tart". It was an amazing achievement and one that I was very vocally proud of. Still to this day it stands up beautifully.
However in the last two years a lot more flavors have become available and a lot more knowledge has been gained since then. With that said, it's time to introduce you to an even more amazing version of this recipe profile, with even more amazingly delectable mouthfeel & flavour than ever before.
This is Oh You Tart 2.0
The Base is made simple by combining the delicious tones of WF Almond cookie & WF Lemon Squares.
The lemon curd custard combines a combination of Inw Creme Brulee, VTA Sour Lemon, FE Lemon & FA Butter while some other lovely lighter lemon notes are loaned by the WF Lemon Squares.
However this is a taller, fuller meringue pie than ever before so I have gone with a very full mouthfeel on the top of the pie by using a combination of FLV Marshmallow Vanilla, FA Meringue & a little FLV Smoked Butterscotch.
The accenting in the recipe happens from different directions here that just work. The FLV Smoked Butterscotch helps with that genuine out of the oven home baked note. The super sweet offers a little sugary note to the meringue. The FA Butter even this low helps the base, the curd and the top beautifully.
There is a lot going on here to create what is to my taste the most amazing full Lemon Meringue Pie recipe I have ever tasted with or without using a LMP concentrate. It has been an awesome experience to rebuild this profile from further knowledge while taking advantage of the latest concentrates available to me. Creating this recipe has been something that has not only challenged me once more but has rewarded with the most delicious experience that I could have ever imagined!
I hope you enjoy this just as much as I enjoyed creating this recipe, but let me know what you thought in the comments below.
I enjoy this at 60W on a Single 0.2ohm SST coil on a Recurve RDA.
Steep Time 5-7 days
Seriously if you like a solid recipe that works give it a go!
Cheers for reading this far, now go and get mixing!

This is one of those that I made, tried and didn't like, then left alone for 5 weeks and tried again, and it was WONDERFUL! Best banana bread recipe I have tried yet. Then again, with TFA Banana Nut Bread it's really hard to go wrong.
TFA Banana Nut Bread : obviously the star of the show. Such a great flavor, only needs a little help.
FA Cookie: to fill out the sweet "baked" flavor
TPA Butter: because butter
FA Meringue: for a sweet hint of frosting
FA Hazelnut to add to the nuttiness
and finally the flavor that has to steep in to be good...
CAP Cinnamon Danish Swirl V2: this is for a hint of cinnamon, however after the shake it is still a bit overpowering imo. however, after a few weeks it works great!
Definitely recommend letting this one steep a bit, not exactly sure how long is best. Gonna say to start at 2 weeks and go from there.
It's a wet peach gummy candy with street cred...
FA Peach White suggests a peach gummy flavor.
CAP 27 Fish. Red candy? Why not flip it? Here it works very well as a candy base and provides the right mouth feel.
FA Fuji subtly rounds out the peach flavor.
FA Meringue adds sweetness and body.
Add sweetener or coolant, if that's your thing.
Creamy vanilla pudding cup topped with a mixed red fruit in syrup and topped with crumbles of cookies.
Surprisingly good off the shake and only seems to get better with time. Haven't had much time to steep yet, but I imagine after it stabilizes in a week or two it will be even better than off the shake. But for a creamy vape off the shake this one turned out really well.
Lemon meringue pie- a tart lemon curd, sweet fluffy meringue and a buttery pastry. I tried really hard to get the balance between the flavours right so it was authentic to eating an actual lemon meringue pie.
CAP Lemon Meringue Pie is the main player. I just accentuated what it already has and filled in where I felt it was lacking. I tried using VT Lemon Meringue Tart but CAP worked better for the type of LMP I had envisioned.
FE Lemon (aka ‘Xpress Flavour’ Lemon on Chefs) and LA Cream Cheese Icing make up the lemon curd layer. FE is just a really lovely lemon and works perfectly here to create that lemon meringue pie kinda lemon. If you want it more lemon-y you can bump it up to 1.5%. LA CCI is what makes this mix so good. It gives it richness, mouthfeel and makes
it a lemon curd rather than just a lemon. I think it needs a bit of a steep to really start working though. I wanted to avoid using a custard or anything too creamy so as not to mute the acidity of the lemon.
INW Biscuit and CAP Sugar Cookie create the buttery bakery layer. You can definitely sub INW Biscuit for JF. Most of the versions before this one I made with JF. The INW just seemed a touch more present after the steep.
FA Meringue is obviously the meringue layer, but it also sweetens the whole mix as well as softening any of the harsh edges of the lemon.
I like to use CAP SS at 0.5% but you can obviously sweeten to your own tastes. I think it does need at least a bit of sweetener to brighten everything up.
You can leave overnight and it’s ok but it gets so much better after at least a weeks steep.
I tested it on a single coil in the Hadaly and i got a really great balance in the layers- the lemon, the pastry/ bakery and the meringue were all present and easily identifiable. I went onto test it on a couple of dual coil RDAs and although still good the layers were a bit less distinct. I personally have found this recipe works far better with a more restricted airflow. I tried on the Drop Dead with the airflow wide open and I mainly just got lemon. Once the airflow was closed a little more than halfway a lot more of the profile came through.
I’d really love to hear feedback-
any criticisms and suggestions as to how I could improve the recipe would be much appreciated.
