163 DIY E-Liquid Recipes found

Setup i used: dual fused clapton @0,21Ohm on a Velocity RDA @75-80 Watts

The Idea:
I did not want to use the basket ingredients to be the base for a pastry,which would be pretty obvious.Especially Cinnamon Danish Swirl and Fuji together could already be a pretty good and simple recipe.
So i had the idea to use CDS only as a top note.But the challenge was to find something that binds to this ingredient and is strong enough to cut through the fruit mix without overtaking it.Pretty soon i found that TPA Pie Crust could be a good match for what i was looking for.It's not sweet,dry and strong enough to differentiate itself from the sweet fruit base.I also think it mimics the crisps quite well in this particular case.
It's a little "sharp" though at this fairly high percentage so in order to round those sharp edges a bit i used EM at 0.5%
EM also brings out some of the inner sweetnes of the fruits,which isn't a bad thing at all.

The fruit base: Fuji is the main note and Strawberry Ripe is more of a sweetening agent here.It's not supposed to be a strawberry blast which hits your palate like there is no tomorrow.The good old FA Meringue has never let me down when it comes to add some white sugar to a recipe. FA Liquid Amber was also a No-brainer.It brings some fermented,warm feel to the table which turns that fruits/meringue combo into something that has slowly being cooked and stirred for some time .Meringue and Liquid Amber together brought me the Compote taste i was going for.

The Conclusion: A sweet,warm Apple Strawberry Compote freshly made with some Cinnamon Crisps on top

Steeping:after 4 days everything comes together nicely and especially the Pie crust tones down a bit.

Sidenote:After i had the recipe together i realised the i have been using V2 of Capellas CDS.I know i'm an idiot but i hope that V1 is not completely different than V2.I don't know if you guys see it as a major mistake,but now it's too late anyway because i can't get V1 in time here.
Thanks for this awesome Competition!

Feedback would be highly appreciated especially if i won't make it into the next round!

Really love my sour skittles but you can feel your teeth rotting away as fast as you eat them so wanted to nail a vape that gave me a healthier option
I wanted to have it so you got a hint of all the top notes left in your mouth after you vaped it !
After 7 revisions an a big juggling act im really pleased how it vapes ! You get a different taste as you vape an a nice sweet mixed fruit exhale thats sweet an kinda refreshing !
Had alot of problems with that sour after twang I tried all the usual suspects TPA sour 20% , FA Sour wizard , Malic acid an citric acid as well as trying various citrus concentrates an few lemonades in lower %s

Few notes

CAP ITALIAN LEMON SICILY / FA LIME TAHITY - These 2 i wanted for there citrus sour taste that are a main note in the sweets ! Kept them high to be an over riding taste in the vape ! The lemon is a bangin candy lemon perfect for this an FA lime is a great fit to the real taste of sour skittles 4 % an 1.75 worked out about right ! so there my green an yellow skittles !

TPA GRAPE CANDY / INW BLACKCURRANT - Purple i wanted to combine these 2 as i wanted that back end to taste of the INW concentrate as i get that from the originals ! Grape candy is a sweet easier flavour that fits on most berry fruits an just adds another dimension to it ! The INW is a strong one so didnt need to overdo the % on that compared to the Grape

FW BLOOD ORANGE - Tried adding other oranges in but FW is such a good bitter orange thats pretty sweet an zingy so felt that it could hold its own on team orange ! It gives that bitter grapefruit just in the middle of the vape an as its not hugely strong lays nice with the other citrus notes

CAP &JF SWEET STRAWBERRY - Love these 2 together the candy / sweety JF is bangin an cap just plays well with them adding a nice sweetness needed for the actual sweets but also pulls the other fruits in together an a slightly higher %

FA SOUR / MALIC ACID - Tried alot of combos but to get tongue curling sour you have to add so much of them it just mutes the shit out of all these delicate fruits ! Settled on 1 % FA which i find much better than TPA an .5 of malic acid (do not overdo this one as it mutes the shit out of it an ruins the recipe i found )

TPA MARSHMALLOW / ETHYL MALTOL - just adds that overall sweetness an the center part of the skittle which is kinda sweet but tasteless an the EM rounds it all together plus pulling a bit of extra sweetness From the fruits

Job done an hopefully some of you

So i've shipped this over from my ELR account.

"A custard cream is a type of biscuit popular in the British Isles. Its structure is that of a sandwich, with a creamy, custard-flavoured centre between two flat biscuit layers. Traditionally, the filling was buttercream (which is still used in home-made recipes) but nowadays cheaper fats have replaced butter in mass-produced biscuits. The filling tastes of vanilla and as such is more akin to the taste of custard made with custard powder than egg custard. It is believed that the custard cream biscuit originated in 1908.[1] They usually have an elaborate baroque design stamped onto them, originating in the Victorian era and representing ferns.[2]

Some British and Irish supermarkets produce own brand versions, with variations including lemon, orange, chocolate, strawberry, coffee and coconut flavours. In a 2007 poll of 7,000 Britons, 9 out of 10 voted custard creams to be their favourite biscuit.[2] In 2009 it was ranked the eighth most popular biscuit in the UK to dunk into tea.[3]" - wikipedia.

So here you go, my take on it. See below for a few notes.

Marshmallow - don't sub for Cap Marshmallow, it's not the same what so ever.

Graham Cracker - it was originally the dark one but have swapped for the clear due to the safety concerns and the limited availability of the original dark one.

Sucralose - I use the standard Capella sucralose, if you use Capella Super Sweet, use half of what my recipe states so 0.5% opposed to 1%.

Starts tasting really good after 3 days or more. I always do a warm bath with the bottle straight after mixing, and shake until there is so much air that it is cloudy. If you can leave to steep for 1 week or more then it just gets better.

Work in progress fresh tropical smoothie, this tastes like tropical fruits blended with milk


Wanted to simulate a Peppermint Patty for a friend. The Double Chocolate is what I had on hand to start with and it seems to work well at this ratio. The Creme De Menthe is the creamy mint portion, and the Koolada is the the cooling sensation on the exhale. The sweetener is there as more of a binder than anything else, not sure why but without it the mint is very strong and the chocolate doesn't come through as much. I played with this for quite some time before coming up with the final blend that works well as a shake and vape but is great after about 48 hours.

Three drops TFA Ethyl Maltol per 10ml.

This is the recipe I was going to post for the competition, but I didn't enter. I can't taste strawberry very well, so if someone could mix this up and let me know, I would appreciate it. It's a strawberry apple streusel, or at least as close as I can get. I can't taste strawberry's but I have had people test this on my behalf and got it as close as I could. I'm like Beethoven creating music while deaf. Only I'm not talented. Or obsessed with poop.

This is what its called, a Strawberry Margarita. That being said there is no alcohol/tequila or salt effect/taste. All of these flavorings work very well together. My experience with beverage vapes is limited at best but I think I really hit a homerun with this recipe. I have had margarita vapes in the past but none have been as tasty as this one. If you enjoy it please rate and comment. Thanks
