Here is another 2 ingredient recipe. Mouthfeel is full and a rich vanilla custard is the initial flavor with the vanilla sweetened strawberry on the exhale and a tasty treat when you open your mouth and let it breathe. This needs a 2-5 day steep. When it turns a rich rose color it is ready. Lovely CAP Vanilla custard for that rich base and FA Red Touch to give it a nice strawberrylicious balance. This is another of my ADV's. Easy and delicious, but it needs the steep!
An accessible and dead simple green apple hard candy for people used to paying way more for juice. The fancy label and booth babes are in your mind.
Special shoutout to Flavorah and Liquid Barn for putting together the DIY Extravaganza at the Vegas Vape Expo. Mixers were breaking down DIY for attendees. This recipe was my attempt to create a quick, tasty, and "commercial" vape juice right in front of people on the fence about trying DIY.
As a "simple" juice, this is mostly about bolstering a single flavor into a fuller vape. Luckily, CAP Green Apple Hard Candy really doesn't need all that much help. It's a green apple jolly rancher, full shop. I don't get any of the acetone off-notes present in a lot of green apple concentrates here. It's almost perfect for a sweet, sticky and slighty warm hard candy vape. It's a simple profile, but executed really well. This recipe was specifically formulated to 16% to work with the liquid barn basic bottles, so the 12% is a bit arbitrary, but it works well there.
FLV Sour Apple brings in some support. It's another green apple candy flavor, but it isn't quite as full and sweet. The "Sour" part is pretty great though, and it just provides a bit of punch to keep the jolly rancher from building into something too sticky and cloying. Most "sours" aren't all that tart and the malic acid will gradually eat at the flavors underneath, hollowing out your juice. FLV Sour Apple doesn't seem to mute nearly as bad over the long term, and it really helps to set off the CAP. 3% of this flavor is a lot, but we're not in overflavoring territory and the CAP GAHC soaks it all up.
And Capella Super Sweet, well, it's a sweetener. The acids there seem to help further enliven candies and this is pretty much the perfect place for it. 1% is a bit high for a DIY recipe, but it's still on the low end for "commercial" stuff. It's also a candy recipe, soooooooooo..... But whatever, use as much or as little as you like. It's DIY. If Super Sweet is a bit harsh for you, then try FW Sweetener at 2 or even 3% for a comparable level of sweetness. This isn't the recipe for TPA or EM, and the muting with those options is probably detrimental with any kind of steep. I feel like you actually want a bit of bite with all that sweetness.
Can you add cooling? Yes, it's DIY. The recipe will work fine with it. Stick with a neutral coolant instead of something like menthol. I like .5% of 30% WS-23. You can go as cold as you want though. 1% will be "icy." 2% will be brutal. Again, it's DIY.
So there you go, this was actually relatively popular with the people I talked to, and I hope it's a pretty good illustration of how easy DIY can be if you stay out of the way of the flavors and just want to vape something that tastes good. For just 2 flavors and some sweetener, you get a good balance of sweetness, tartness, and depth of flavor. The level of flavor may be a bit obnoxious, but that's the point. You could make this more complex or less overwhelming, but I wanted to target an audience of people that were not already invested in the community.
I'll get back to 10 flavor existential nightmares soon enough, but I thought this might be worth sharing. As much as I enjoy the nerdier side of mixing, the show was a good reminder that DIY can be a bigger tent and I need to do something to help make it one.
Also, Shyndo came up with the name. I'm not sure if the DIY snobs or the juice line goons are Camp Tigerclaw in this scenario, but it's a cool ass name and sometimes that is enough. BIG TENT.
So I have been wanting to try WF peach pie & cream for a while. All I can say is wow this is probably one of the best peaches that I don’t get a perfume note from. It lacks a little in the pie department but it’s a easy fix. Paired with JF biscuit, Cap Vanilla whipped cream and touch of Tfa vbic makes WF peach pie & cream shine. Great job Wonder Flavours. Don’t be afraid to push this one 5 to 7 % range.
My purpose was to create a mix,mostly focused on the bakery side of an apple pie and that's the reason i use 2 apple pie flavours,taking the best out of each(according to my taste of course).Despite the use of tpa's dx bavarian cream,this recipe is practically a snv(2-3 days for the flavours to settle).That is quite strange for me,because i usually get off notes from unsteeped dx flavours.I can only guess that this happens because of vta's flavours,but i can't really explain it.
Week 45 (The year of mixing) - Sweet and mellow coffee flavor with rich tones of buttery caramel drizzle, flavored with smooth hazelnut and light coconut notes, and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. There's a bit of sweetness used here, you don't have to - it's optional - or you could replace it with whatever sweetener you prefer if you like your coffee's really sweet like I do. If you're more of a black coffee drinker, you may need to add in something like FA Cappuccino at 0.25% or Tiramisu to bump the dark coffee notes up some, but this is far more a light and sweet coffee flavor.
I will start this by saying, I love coffee, but have a hard time with coffee e juice, It all tastes like burnt popcorn or just burnt coffee. When I say I love coffee though, I should be honest and say I put mocha in my coffee at home with some creamer. So, this recipe is very similar to my coffee at home.
The recipe is pretty straight forward, I will just add the VT Coffee Base is excellent.
Was at a brunch and they were serving Crepes with a Cointreau sauce( orange liquor) , and it was just plain old YUMMY . So this was my attempt at capturing this and it comes really darn close
WF Crepes is just a great sweet pancake/ crepe base with out any additional maple syrup notes but needs a touch of texture to add those darker notes. So I added a bit of FA joker for that darker fried edges and it works perfect thanks @starsandclouds for that recommendation. I think you could use FA biscuit, or even hazelnut at a low percent to capture that as well
WF croissant and CAP butter peacn adds those lovely creamy butter notes and body that I wanted to add here The butter pecan also add some more texture
VT Orange Marmalade, FA Rum and VT golden syrup create the orange sauce . Golden syrup is like a sweet generic pancake syrup that is really useful here adding that sticky sweet sort of mouth feel to the Rum and Orange marmalade . I used rum rather then brandy here as I did not want the other fruit notes that brandy can have and i wanted some of the darker spice notes from the rum
I used FW sweetener here at 0.05%
NOTES/SUBS while Joker is not needed it does add the darker crunch to the crepe . Any dark cookie note could work at a low percent . if you want more of an orange pop top note you can a dd another orange/ citrus of your liking to the Orange marmalade. I did not want the orange to take over but to be more of a accent note .
