I recently got my honeysuckle in so I've been trying it with different concentrates. This one is great. Wasn't sure it would work but it turned out fantastic. Its like a French vanilla ice cream with just a hint of the honeysuckle. The HS didnt really stand out like I thought it would even at 5% but it does add a nice honey like sweetness to the vape. And it even has that "green" taste to it although its very faint. Goes great with the French vanilla and vanilla bean. I've been vaping this one all day for a few days now. I hope you enjoy it too! Would love some feedback on this one along with any advice on what else I can use this honey suckle for. Thanks peeps! Cheers!
5 Pawns Bowden's Mate has been an ADV for me for a very long time. When I started DIYing, one of my goals was to create an interpretation worthy of the real thing. I tried every clone recipe out there I could find - none came even close. More than 6 months and 20 versions later, the one below ticks all the boxes for me - a really simple recipe compared to some of the others tried.
The Peppermint, Menthol and Koolada percentages below are as close to the real juice as one can get imo, but feel free to play around with these to suit your personal taste.
The original recipe used INW Milk Chocolate, which has since been reformulated. Feel free to use INW Milk Chocolate if you have the original formulation. Otherwise, use JF Milk Chocolate, which fill those boots perfectly and more.
A 4 week steep is optimal.
First recipe posting here, hopefully others enjoy it. I was looking for a good Bavarian Creme Doughnut and I looked for a bit and couldn't find much. There were a couple of things that were simple that I mixed up and didn't care for. I decided to make this my first mix. I am aiming for biting into the center of the doughnut here. The ooey, gooey center bite that results in a super creamy feel.
Zeppola/YC/Joy: This is the doughnut base. Zeppola is one of my favorites here. I tried TPA - Frosted before this and it just didnt fit right. There was something off, or artificial with it. I've tested this as a doughnut base, and it gives me a "Fresh fried doughnut" feel; slightly yeasty as well. This is my base I use for many doughnuts now.
Bavarian Cream/French Vanilla Creme/SC/Meringue/VC: This is my Bavarian Cream. The custard/meringue combo gives me a slightly thicker cream. I tried without those, and it felt too "watered" down.
The chocolate glaze: DCC. This is use lightly, as I just wanted it as a thin glaze.
I was asked how the vape experience was, and this was my reply: Its got a strong fried doughnut taste on the inhale and beginning of the exhale. Then its followed by the Bavarian cream/semi creamy flavor, with a very slight chocolate at the end of the exhale. It's a pretty thick and dense vape. Very flavorful. A couple of people have commented on the fact that the French Vanilla is so high, but it is not as strong after the steep; gets toned down by the other flavors in the mix. The doughnut taste lingers on the tongue, with a little bit of the cream as well.
If you want a little more balance, more even texture/doughnut to cream feel, you can drop the Bav Cream down to about 1% or so and drop the french vanilla cream down to about 1.5%. This adds more of a texture and balance to the mix.
