This is inspired by kindground the master of lemon! I really have wanted a super bright candy lemonade not unlike my lemon twist clone. After a few attempts I didnt come close and gave up for a while. As I have grown in skill as a mixer I started to wonder...can I do it now? The answer is apparently yes because this mix is absolutely heavenly. By the way I know very few people have HC lemon and that sucks. But, kindground told us it was the best lemon of all the lemons and noone bought it. This ingredient deserves better because it is phenomenal and I hope this helps people see that. So no substitutions on this one because it's exactly how it is meant to be. Enjoy folks, this one is as good as I can make it! Also, you can vape after an overnight steep but it is best after 3 days. Sweetener belongs between .25-
VT Lemon Meringue Tart is MB Lemon Tart
I made this on the fly and it really surprised me.
My thought process was to lay a thin crust for a backnote (OOO Pie Crust). Next in my mind, it needed some of that stuff you get at the bottom of a tart between the crust and filling so I added some lemon squares to it. MB Lemon Tart is pretty nice on it's own at 6% with some nice creamy biscuit notes but I knew I was going to layer this up so I dialed it down to 4. I wanted to add more creaminess to it and WF lemon custard was on point here providing a smooth mouth feel. A good lemon meringue needs good egg white fluff and flapper pie with a touch of FA meringue is my go to . I spiked it with some tangy sour lemon and It hit the spot, I gave it a good shake, let it sit for a few hours, dripped it and then tried it after half an hour and was quite pleased. To be honest I don't really know what the OOO Pie Crust is doing here and if you want more biscuit add maybe 0.5% of your favorite e.g INW or JF biscuit or try it without if you can't find it.
Sweeten to taste: I use 1 drop per 10ml of FW Sweetener.
Tested on a single coil Dead Rabbit, 1.6 Ohms 60 Watts.
Possible changes: You could try VT lemon meringue pie, FE lemon is also good in this if you want it less candied or optional addition for more in your face lemon
TL;DR "mix this now"
In case you missed it: VT Lemon Meringue Tart is MB Lemon Tart

So watching the Great British Bake off - one of the challenges was to make a lemon treacle tart . Which is basically LOTS of golden syrup , bread crumbs, butter, egg yolks, a little lemon juice and zest and in a tart crust
I was intrigued and wanted to try it so we made one and I am in love!! Golden syrup is a major ingredient for this tart and it is not available in the US - so amazon to the rescue . One recipe I found called for a 1 1/2 LBS of golden syrup. Hence the name for the recipe
WF Lemon custard is a light lemon, with a touch of vanilla and a lovely silky custard mouth feel, the body fills out as it steeps. The soft mouth feel is just lovely . The lemon is a base to mid note so if you really want LEMON you will need to add to it
The combination of WF lemon custard and Lemon sour work well for lemon notes in this mix the lemon custard is a mild and sits in the front and middle of this mix with a the lemon sour bringing a lemon zesty at the exhale.
WF Pineapple candy is used low here to bring some of the citrus sweetness and support the curd like texture of the mix
Sugar cookie and pudding base are used to bring this mix together with the golden syrup and add some bakery texture . Pudding base has a starch like body that does not have any additional spice notes. Sugar cookie fills in this mix and add some texture.
Pie crust by OOO is a really nice simple plain pie crust that works on its own with out much support and is subtle in the mix at the exhale
Note: I do think that FA custard could be used here instead of WF lemon custard as it does have a light lemon note - but the silky mouth feel of this WF lemon custard is lovely and works really well . This is a Make your teeth hurt dessert so I did add .50% of Cap super sweet to mine - but it is not needed
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!

I recently got FLV Citrus Soda - and it inspired me to play around with my previous Kiwi/Lemon recipe - and I'm quite happy with the results.
FA Kiwi & VT Sour Lemon - are here to stay, as I think they're a great combo.
CAP Lemon Lime - brings some extra zing into the mix.
LA Lemonade - helps brighten up the other citrus flavors.
FLV Citrus Soda - to add that fizz illusion - I kept it low, as I feel it can quickly dominate the mix, and also get a bit soapy at higher percentages.
Works as a shake 'n vape!
I use 70/30 - VG/PG at 3mg

A nice tropical grapefruit inhale with a sweet and sour lemon exhale. Honeysuckle mingles throughout and gives this vape a nice floral touch. WS-23 cools it and brings an icy touch. Delicious.
After vaping custards for weeks, I needed something refreshing.. This stuff hit the spot!
FA Kiwi I quite enjoyed on its own - but it needed a friend.
VT Sour Lemon came to save the day - lifting the mix to a new level.
Best enjoyed right off the shake - The "freshness" will fade in a few days ..

I've been chasing a lemon vape that can resist to higher wattages, doesn't end up tasting like overcooked lemon candy and doesn't fade after 3 days. I like a generous buttery bakery and a bright lemon curd on it with less sugar. When you bake lemon bars in real life, take the amount of lemon juice advised and double it. Trust me, it changes everything.
VT Lemon Meringue Tart/WF Lemon Squares/FA Apple Pie = That the bakery. VT Lemon Meringue Tart is lovely, you could almost vape it on its own. WF Lemon Squares isn't that lemony, but it's absolutely the buttery shortbread base for our lemon bars. FA Apple Pie marries like a charm with lemon and gives this vape the body it lacks.
CAP Juicy Lemon/FA lemon Sicily/VT Sour Lemon = This mix is the bright and zingy lemon juice profile I like. Also, these flavorings will hold themselves at higher wattages. You always need more from Capella fruits and citrus, but when you find the proper % for them, they will behave well and you can trust them.
FLV Greek Yogurt/FLV Cream = This combo is for the curd, for the tang, for the richness. Again, no bakery ever suffered from 1% of FLV cream.
This mix will age well. The first week you'll get a face full of lemon. The second week, your buttery bakery will come out. The third week and on, you'll have a well-balanced lemon bar recipe that will maintain it's lemony goodness albeit a little less zing.
Enjoy, be queer & vape on!
