I have gone through so many variations of grape recipes to finally get here. The Grape Juice & White Grape combo is great - but can easily read as sweet wine, which is useful, but not what I was going for. I did want a darker grape, without using Grape Concorde. I wanted it to read as a slightly sweetened, blended grape drink that is somewhat authentic, and somewhat sweetened & flavoured.
FE Grape - lovely mix between authentic, and slightly candy. Works great to add another layer to my grape
FA White - adds a smidge of body, surypy sweetness
TPA Grape Juice - this is mostly the base of the trinity, extremely underated grape
FA Black Currant - was added very low to bring some body, as most grapes can read quite flat - it also adds a bit of purple to the paler grapes.
Sweeten & Cool as you prefer - my suggestions here is for a more commercial feel sweet grape juice. The WS23 I use is a 20% dilution.
I wanted to make a wine and grapefruit shandy cooler garnished with fresh herbs. None of the grapes worked on their own as a wine so I had to combine INW-Grape and TPA Grape Juice along with a touch of CAP-Blueberry Jam and FA-Brandy to deepen the grapes into a more wine like flavor. The FA-Champagne combined with the FA-Grapefruit and FLV-Yakima Hops form my shandy and add some light carbonation to the mix. The INW-Cactus is there to add some tartness to the grapefruit as well as adding more of the moist mouthfeel. The FA-Zen Garden combines with the FA-White Winter (spearmint) to bring some freshly muddled herbs into the mix.
This is my favourite juice that I have made so far.
It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s pretty sweet.
(TPA) grape juice and (TPA) grape candy go well together to make a fairly synthetic/candy grape flavour. (CAP) jelly candy assists with this. I don’t really know what to say about (TPA) black currant... I suppose it’s kind of like Ribena and helps to round the flavour off nicely, I think. You can take or leave the koolada. That’s really a personal choice. It doesn’t alter the flavour profile, but I think it helps to make the whole thing pop.
You could use this as a shake and vape... I do. But I also usually make a second (bigger) batch to let it steep. I don’t usually touch that bottle until about 2 weeks.
Mix this one up, you will not regret it. As always, enjoy, and let me know how you feel about it.
this was one of my favorite sodas as a kid and I wanted too put this in a vape and try it out so I used tfa cola syrup to help with the thickness part of it and tfa champagne to give it that fizziness in the soda and cap grape too help out the bring out that grape soda alil more and also grape juice till fill out the grape soda and give it some depth and with alil koolada in there to make it seem like its sitting in a glass of ice
I was asked by a coworker to formulate a grape lollipop, I brought this to him yesterday and he immediately asked for more. I thought I'd share with those of you looking for a solid grape lollipop.
No thorough notes on this one really as this was done in just a few short revisions but....
FLV grape is an awesome candy grape if you're looking to formulate your own. Also, It's very sweet so it carries the heft of sweetness in the mix.
TFA Grape Juice pumps in the little lacking grape POP so to speak.
CAP Blueberry Jam was a concentrate I hadn't found a use for yet but it serves well in this mix to provide a deeper candy "effect". Think of it as a "texturizer".
FA Meringue isn't used as a sweetener here or even intended for a sugar effect, Instead it's meant to shave off any sharp notes you may perceive from the candy components.
FA Marshmallow is used as an enhancer to serve to thicken up the mix. (Mouthfeel)
A simple delicious and authentic bubble gum recipe made to show off just how easy the Molinberry American Bubblegum is to use. Just like the the familiar ones you may have had but only better I think. Give it a try and tell us what you think !

After trying several different clone/remix recipes out there, I have finally come to the conclusion that the most important pieces are these 3 components and you can build from there.
4.5% Cereal 27 (Cap) - This is your bread
5% Golden Butter (Cap) - This is your butter obviously
4% Sweet Strawberry (Cap) - Your Main Strawberry note
Bring in AP at 0.5% and you've got a bit more nuttiness to your bread. Want an even better bread? Add 0.15% of Joy (FA). You're pretty damn close right here and this is a very vapeable recipe.
Now here is the catch, we know that with these 3 main components, we do not get a dark brown caramel look to the juice, and we know the original is definitely a brown tint. That could be the steeping process, but its likely that there is something more going on here. So if we look back at Waynes remix, the Strawberry Jam with Toast has that nice dark color we see present in Jam Monster. So it would only make sense that this is added to lift the bread rather than using the AP and Joy and also make the strawberry more jam like. Ive seen chatter around the web about Cranberry Sauce being in all of the Jam Monster series to give that nice jammy flavor, but I cant seem to find it. Strawberry Sweet on its own is close but starts to hide in the cereal and butter, so we need to bring it back with RF Strawberry, and then lift the toast with the Strawberry Jam/Toast from RF
So if we add 2% RF Strawberry and 2% Strawberry Jam w/ Toast, we start to get that nice strawberry and the dark golden color of the juice.
This will get us closer to the desired color, but i haven't had a chance to fully experiment.
Either way, remember what Wayne says, think simple. The three main ingredients, to me, are very very close to the original and its all CAP. As a business, that would make more sense financially to build the recipe off these three main components.
Would love any feedback!
