I recall when I first read about INW Rhubarb and its authenticity. I had to try it, only to sample it and throw it in the bottom of the box. I was recently discussing baking things like apple crisp and rhubarb crisp at work, when someone asked if I could make a rhubarb custard vape. It got my creative gears turning, trying to figure out ways to impart INW Rhubarb into that type of recipe without it being overly tart and also without just dumping sweetener in to mask what might otherwise be an undesirable flavor in a vape. I've always thought that proper pairings and the right additives should eliminate any need to pour diluted sucralose into a mix unless you're trying to clone a commercial juice.
What I came up with is shake and vapable and carries plenty of sweetness without the gunk. It isn't exactly a "custard" in my opinion, but it isn't exactly a "crisp" either. It is however, delightful and very tasty.
Those of you that have a bottle of INW Rhubarb already understand the potency and subjective "vile tartness" of the flavor. It can be too sour, tart, vegetal, whatever sensitivities it hits your palate with. That being said, it is very true to it's name and Inawera did a great job as far as authenticity with this one. Readers who have had the pleasure of gnawing on freshly picked rhubarb from the garden will know exactly what I'm talking about. If you don't like it and you have a bottle, it is workable, the key is pairing it with a supporting cast of fruits that can accent it without taking over.
This flavor reminds me of a strong white wine. It carries a fermented note and does wonders with wetness in a recipe without adding the aloe funk INW Cactus would. I used it (ages ago) in my Grape Ice Cream Cone to add a little jazz and beef up the main fruit note. I still make it fairly regularly to this day, Koolada and all, although some prefer it without the chill factor. I've tried many other fruit combos on this base, but I've found the ones I like best kept the Liquid Amber. Without it, the fruit note gets lost in the mix and fades into the backgrund. But back those creams off, and we lose that thick ice cream volume and mouthfeel. It took a lot of trial and error to conclude that I needed FA Liquid Amber in this recipe, and I carried that experience to the recipe below.
Not an earthy green pear like TFA Pear. This one is more of a candied pear with its bright juiciness. It almost comes off as "crisp", and carries a lingering sweetness on the tongue. It does have a relatively authentic pear taste, but there is definitely some extra sweetness to go along with it. I tend use it at lower percentages to brighten up fruit recipes rather than cheating in a sweetener. It blends well with the green note of the rhubarb and helps ease the tartness into something much more palatable.
As a standalone strawberry, it holds its own, but it does benefit from being put with other strawberry flavors if you're after a full on strawberry taste. It has jammy properties, comes off a bit candied, and lends some soft creaminess, almost a puree if you will. It works well with every strawberry I've tried it with. Here, it serves as a great addition to the fruit portion of the recipe, mellowing out the rhubarb a bit further while giving the mix a bright hint of strawberry without coming to the front.
CAP definitely hit the cinnamon with this one, but some say the bakery "danish" portion got left out along with the "swirl". It doesn't have the thick breadiness you would expect, and that's fine for this recipe. I started out trying for a rhubarb crisp, but tabled the idea and decided to make the mix a bit more gooey, bringing the next two flavors to the party. This could probably be backed down to the 1.5-2% range for the cinnamon sensitive. As far as using v2 here, just don't, you will be disappointed. I've subbed CDS v2 in other recipes, and it doesn't do the wonderful things v1 does.
This is one ingredient I find to be a bit under-rated and under-utilized. All opinions aside, I find this a much more valuable ingredient than CAP Vanilla Custard. It doesn't take much to get the job done, and it's much thicker and egg-ier as a custard should be. Some say it has a vanilla note, others claim there to be none. I personally don't pick up vanilla from this one, maybe more of a heavy milk/cream sort of thing that would definitely play into a cereal recipe a lot better than actual dairy/milk offerings out there. At 1.5%, it serves as part of a thick and solid base for the fruits to sit on without turning the recipe into an eggy fruit + cream sort of thing.
This is not a strong or dark vanilla flavoring. At 1%, it provides a quite bit of body without bullying out other ingredients. I find it incredibly versatile, much like TFA Vanilla Swirl, yet I find this to be a little thicker and more concentrated. It's a great booster for the Custard, and adds another layer of depth to the gooey base. If you don't have this, TFA Vanilla Swirl at 2% should be an OK sub, but order yourself some of this because you're missing out on a fantastic ingredient.
An eclectic blend of RED heroes creating a mezmerising taste sensation.
INW Rhubarb is what it says on the label... This is an eerily authentic rhubarb in a bottle and encapsulates the distinctive sour & fruity rhubarb taste perfectly. It's sharpness and slight sweet notes lends itself perfectly as a pairing with strawberry.
RF strawberry brings an authentic, fresh strawberry, burst to blend beautifully with TFA Strawberry. Combined, they create a magical union of RED.
I tried various combinations of strawberry but settled on a real strawberry taste rather than than the popular and unrealistic strawberry notes.
As raspberry can overpower a recipe in an instant, I opted for Sweet raspberry to bring the sweet, slightly tangy raspberry feel, boosted by the authenticity of FA Berryl. The wateriness inherently present in Sweet strawberry lends itself perfectly here as it tames some of the stonger flavours, especially the Rhubarb. I tried both FA Raspberry in INW Raspberry and felt that Berryl was less aggressive and sat much better here to create the final RED layer.
FA Cream fresh adds a slight creaminess and binds our RED trio, whilst providing a subtle mouthfeel to make the mix more harmonious.
Give this baby 5 days or so for the Rhubarb to settle and allow the REDness to shine!!
This recipe should not be an insult to God and has nothing to do with it.
In my childhood, my mother always made Gods Food (in Swiss German: Götterschpys, in German: Götterspeise).
In a bowl, she has always added a layer of rusk (Graham Cracker Clear), a layer of rhubarb compote and a layer of fine vanilla cream on top of each other until the bowl was full.
I have now tried to replicate this fine dessert in a liquid and I think I have succeeded very well.
If you like rhubarb, vanilla cream and rusks, you should try this liquid recipe immediately.
I usually don't post recipes, mainly because my pallet is shot to shit. My best recipes are usually 3-5 ingredients, 12%-16%. And I can TASTE them, not imagine what they taste like.
This recipe is a simple rhubarb/raspberry muffin crisp. I've been chasing this profile for quite a while, with lackluster results. I took inspiration for this version from a thread somewhere online, and now I'm not sure where. Even though the other recipe used only 2 of the ingredients (Meringue and Rich Cinnamon), I still feel I owe credit where it is due.
The trouble with this recipe was finding a decent muffin base that didn't require 3 ingredients on it's own. Enter FLV Lembas Bread. A great, full muffin that is a great neutral start, if a bit dry. Call in TFA Butter. ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY PERFECT playmate for Lembas Bread. Provides richness, and anchors the base of the recipe. Plus dem 'ketones nukka.
The brown sugar works in 2 seperate aspects in this recipe. Adding moistness and sweetness to the base, as well as working with the Meringue and Rich Cinnamon to create the "crisp". I think people underestimate the textural effects Rich Cinnamon. The flavor is obviously great, but it can add a fresh-baked feel to many bakeries at extremely small percentages.
The fruit portion satisfies two requirements for me. #1, figure out a way to use the may-be-stronger-than-betahydroxymethylfentanyl substance known as INW Rhubarb, and utilize a combination that doesn't rely on sweetness for flavor, and will not fade with time. Trying to find a Raspberry to work with INW Rhubarb was tough-INW's offering is much too similar as it is quite tart to me on it's own. TFA's tastes like grass clippings, CAP's was close, but didn't quite punch through or hold up to a steep well enough.
FA Berryl (Raspberry) ended up the only one besides MF that had the flavor I wanted, and the necessity of a 20 fortnight steep took the MF off the table. From there, it was just trial and error to figure out relative strengths of the 2 fruits after a week steep, knowing the INW Rhubarb HAD to stay @0.3% or lower. I tested the Raspberry @ 1%, 1.5%, 2%, and 2.5% with 2% being the magic number. Any higher and it takes over the muffin base, any lower and the Rhubarb buries it like it was gonna testify.
The FLV Cream helps round the whole thing off with more moisture and mouthfeel and blah blah blah blah. That shit is just excellent, put it in errthang, ya dig? Hopefully if you mix it, you'll like it, and leave some feedback.
Tasted Rhubarb Lemonade, choose to make an EJuice :)
Lemonade\Lime\Lemon Sicily as Lemonade Base.
Rhubarb as Main Profile, Raspberry for backing it up.
Strawberry Shisha as Complimentary Berry Note.
Ethyl Maltol for smoothing out the harsher Notes.
Super Sweet is optional.
edit: rhubarb - 0.1 to 0.9
A classic rhubarb crumble like Granny would make.
Nice tart Rhubarb, toned and sweetened with a touch of strawberry, sitting under a golden buttery crumble and finished with a dollop of vanilla cream.
CAP Sugar Cookie/JF Biscuit/ FA Butter - The perfect components to get a soft buttery crumble flavour with a little crunch. The butter can absolutely be swapped for TFA Butter. JF Biscuit is a softer, more buttery biscuit than it's INW cousin so a better choice in this recipe, though again can be subbed.
TFA Strawberry Ripe/ TFCC Rhubarb: The filling. TFCC Rhubarb is not all that strong in comparison to the well known companies, its best described as perfectly emulating a candied rhubarb sweet flavour. The strawberry helps to fill it out, sweeten and give it more of a stewed texture.
FA Cream Fresh/ TFA VBIC: Make a nice 'dollop' of cream to round the recipe off. VBIC adds just the right amount of creamy vanilla, while the Fresh Cream keeps it light and fluffy.
Add Sweetener to taste. I like 0.25% Super Sweet in this one.
My test subjects and I found it perfectly good to vape after 4 days, though this will vary dependant on the Rhubarb used. Rhubarbs usually need a bit of time to settle down so this is not a shake and vape unfortunately.
Really lovely after 2 weeks.
I will be trying the INW Rhubarb in this when I eventually get it in, and will update if I like it better. Feel free to experiment with the rhubarb, I realise most people are not going to have TFCC version as I've only seen it sold at MakeMyVape in the U.K, but it's the only one I have at the moment that I like.
Trying to replicate tantedampf.de's (Berlin's best vape shop) "Rhabarberkadabra",
which is a rather sweet rhubarb/strawberry blend with a hint of vanilla custard.
As of now, I'm not all that close to the original but do love it, anyway.
It's way less sweet than the original, so I ordered a couple of alternatives to my current 1,5% CremeFresh topping in order to try and get closer to the original's sweetness.
Nevertheless, this rather sour incarnation is a pretty nice vape in it's own right, already!
I couldn't find any brand name Rhubarb flavouring here in Germany, so mine is actually "[FlavourDorado] Rhabarber" (German supplier/repackager?) and not "[INW] Rhubarb".
FlavourDorado's proposed dosage range says 1.5 - 2.5 % for their Rhubarb
You will want to adjust your percentages based on your particular Rhubarb flavouring
If anyone has an idea about which bigger brand name flavouring FlavourDorado is repackaging, please let me know!
Tastes just like taking a bit out of fresh, crisp rhubarb. INW really nailed it on the head with this one. It's got a bit of a sharp tartness to it, with some sweetness that's reminiscent of an under-ripe strawberry, and a slight sort of fresh celeryesque taste to it. It is quite sharp/pungent at first, but mellows out in to something beautiful after a steep. This flavor makes a great star of the show as well as accent to other fruits or herbal profiles. This flavor is pretty forward, so it's definitely going to be playing towards the top of the profile.
