DIY E-Liquid Recipe

This is my remix of the popular UK e liquid lemon tart by dinner lady e liquids.

DIYorDIE Runner up recipe of the year!!!

This was a very long journey and i hope i've done some justice in attempting to copy it..... even if i did'nt ha i hope i've created a tasty lemon tart for you all to enjoy. I've managed to create its profile very well with sharp lemon curd followed by a creamy fluffy meringue finishing off with a buttery pastry crust.

notes...

FW Lemon meringue pie

I needed a profile to start with and this flavour seemed to work,its profile works very well with the other ingredients its lemon flavour is very bright and more forward and stronger than capellas offering. The meringue and pastry wasn't an issue at the time because i knew that could be worked on. The 3% was enough as a starting point without it taking over the recipe.

FA Lemon Sicily/Capella Juicy Lemon

This was the most tricky part of the recipe theres so many lemons to chose from it was a minefield and completely had my headspinning. I tried them all in various percentages and combinations. some were to authentic taking on a sour aspect that didn't suit the profile. I knew i already had a good lemon within the FW lemon meringue pie,but it wasn't bright enough. Everyone knows FA lemon sicily is a fantastic lemon so i had to use it. I pushed it to higher percentage because the lemon was the main profile of dinner lady lemon tart. It's vibrant and not sour and it really started to work in what i was trying to achieve. Again this was probably enough to complete the lemon profile but i was concerned overtime it might fade so another lemon i really liked and thought it would complement is capella juicy lemon. Adding a small percentage just built on each other creating a bolder lemon with some added sweetness and juice. They really work well together and that was the lemon complete.

FA Custard PI 3.14

I needed something to create the curd aspect i tried alot of variations and to this day this is one aspect that still bugs me and is something i'll go back to. However this seems my best option so it stays for the time being. It seems to work very well with combining with the lemons and the pie. Its not a heavy custard like capella vanilla custard which i did try and to some degree it works,but it does add vanilla which i didn't want in the recipe. Custard pi gives it that creamy curd feel and the custard also has citrus notes which is a win win and really works well into the lemons to create a kind of curd.

TFA Graham Cracker Clear/INW Biscuit/Capella Golden Butter

These 3 created the pastry base and worked excellent into the lemon meringue pie base. I love graham cracker clear and i think its in the original it lends to a nice creamy biscuit base and adding the biscuit at a lower percentage and the butter works its magic in creating a nice pastry filling.

FA Meringue

We all now about this flavour it just works!!!! its in the original and it had to be in here. it's really forward in the original and pushing it to 1.5% is enough to give you that fluffy light mouthfull.

Sweetner

I added 0.75% mainly down to it being mainstream juice the original is sweet so why not,a little of whats good doesn't hurt . I also feel it tones down the lemons and turns them more into a cooked lemon rather than a sour fresh squeezed lemon. you can leave it out should you wish its still great without it.

TFA Bavarian Cream

I added this at a small percentage just to combine the whole recipe ,it also works well into the custard and lemons and hopefully ups the curd aspect aswell as adding a little glue to the recipe and not drying it out.

This is one of my favorite recipes. The lemon in it is just perfectly balanced with the meringue and crust.
User: MrBurgundy Score: 5 Entered: 2 days ago
Excellent recipe. The lemon isn't overbearing at all. It's thick and creamy with a flaky, fluffy pastry. It keeps you coming back for more. ADV status. Will definitely be mixing again.

Damn this is a tasty recipe! I usually don't like lemon vapes but needed something new and different and this one fit the bill once I was to order the Custard Pi, I didn't want to make any substitutions. Well done with this.
User: juiceIQ Score: 5 Entered: 27 days ago
I ended up mixing this with FA Custard rather than FA Custard Pi, and despite the substitution, it is absolutely incredible. Having never tried the original, I can't vouch for how closely this resembles it, but I can say that it is has the sweetness, zest, and texture required for a brilliantly compelling lemon desert profile. Thank you for sharing the latest addition to my daily rotation.

Bloody brilliant! I had to use CAP LMP because I didn't have FW version at the time and I love it. Can't wait to make it again with the FW variation. Really accurate lemon curd tart, bloody delicious, awesome job! Cheers 🍻

This is a delicious mix! Even right after mixing it's very good. It gets better with time but make sure you mix at least a 120 or you'll never get to taste it after a full steep.

Brilliant, can't put this down. You brought the lemon curd together perfectly and nailed the crust. Definitely the best lemon recipe I've ever vaped. This is what makes DIY so much fun. Thanks for sharing this masterpiece!

Very nice sugared lemon tart, very fluffy, not overly sweet or lemony, but closer to a lemon macaroon for me, still very enjoyable!
User: Nugget40 Score: 5 Entered: 4 months ago
A very authentic, amazing recipe...the lemons in this work magically together, not overpowering, no off "pledge" taste, just a nice cooked, sugared lemon. After a week of so the pastry really starts to come foward. One of my favorite lemon e liquids ever

A genuinely impressive recipe worthy of its rating. Simply amazing. Tastes exactly like a lemon tart after a week. I might pay for a second premium account just so I can rate this twice.

This is a great effort at a clone. It's fantastic. If I were to be hyper critical I would say that to my palate, you're missing a little of the lemon curd flavour/texture in the middle of the recipe that the original has but damn it's close. You nailed the base and higher lemon notes perfectly. Going in the rotation for sure. Thanks for posting

This is now one of my top 3 favourite lemon recipes. I was tempted to buy the original just to see how this compares but I thought why bother when this is so satisfying.
