From @Queuetue : I find boston rounds to be the very best bottles for mixing and temporary storage. I use them for my VG and PG as well as on the scale while I'm making a mix. With a top that's easy to fill, easy to cap and with minimal access to air, I keep a bunch on hand for unflavored base, or whatever project I may be up to for handy, quick access.
The tip is small enough to use with most top-fill RTAs or RDAs as well.
Taken from Magnus8wood on reddit from the november 2016 recipe thread:
I concocted this recipe from memories of my mother's failed Spiced Apricot Jam from my youth. While making the jam, my mom decided that the recipe called for way too much sugar, so she cut the sugar by a third. Well, as any experienced jam and jelly maker will tell you, you cannot cut any of the sugar from a recipe because the jam won't set. And of course, my mom's Spiced Apricot Jam did not set... So we took that syrupy stuff and poured it on pancakes, waffles and ice cream and Wow(!) was it ever good! But my memories of it mostly consist of sitting down in front of the TV to watch Fantasy Island and The Love Boat back to back on Saturday evenings with a humongous bowl of vanilla ice cream and (failed) spiced apricot jam. So now I give you my first ever recipe (based on, you guessed it),...
Spiced Apricot Glaze On Vanilla Ice Cream
* Apricot (TFA) 5.0
* Cinnamon Danish Swirl (CAP) 2.0
* Greek Yogurt (FLV) 1.0
* Fresh Cream (FA) 1.0
* Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (TFA) 4.0
Steeping: At MINIMUM one week, but two is much better. [EDIT: One week of steeping seems quite nice, and I'm not sure I can tell a discernible difference anymore from a two week steep. Maybe my taste buds were being rather exuberant on that second week steep. Whatever. Just wanted to add that I find it too bad that only one person has tried this recipe - that has commented, at least. It turns out to be a really solid recipe and I wish that more would find this out for themselves. It has been my ADV for several weeks now, and I'm not getting sick of it yet. Two weeks lets the Apricot settle into its creamy base, and also allows the Greek Yogurt, Fresh Cream and VBIC to meld together nicely. Heck, guys & gals, one week gets them all out of the school at the recess bell, but two weeks gets them playing nicely together in the schoolyard. How's that for an analogy, eh?
So enjoy it, all! And please, I do hope some of you will try it, and if you do, hopefully some of you will comment back.
So im looking for help with this one. This is a snake oil type recipe, with adaptations from other other recipes as well. Its surprisingly good for a first attempt but ofcourse it can get better. Try if you like snake oil.
Coconut candy + coconut fa
This worked really well in ID-10T's mango colada recipe so i used the same coconut base. Same result, a perfectly balanced coconut that doesnt overwhelm the pear.
Wanted to use this with pear, but also wanted to make a coconut vape, so decided to put them together. I had heard liquid amber is really good with coconut, so i saw no reason not to. It adds a layer of complexity to the recipe that is needed, and helps to make sure the pear is not too bright. Might try this at 1% next time.
Saw kopel using this recently in his fruit mixes and thought why not. I think it works quite well in this recipe but im open to suggestions for using another cream. Might try this with cream fresh or bavarian cream in the future, although i like how the lightness of the cream compliments the coconut.
Can probably sub this for any other pear except FA pear (due to its weak flavour) just make sure not to overdo it.
One of my favourite recipes. From sadpandavape on reddit/ELR
Butterscotch ripple - This flavor is awesome. Light butterscotch flavor that feels like a mix of VBIC and Butterscotch regular. blends perfet in this recipe and gives it the fullness it needs.
Double Ry4 - Fantastic staple of tobacco flavors. At this % it gives the perfect hint of tobacco and the caramel aspect of double ry4 melds fantastic with the other creams.
Fuji Apple - Do I need to explain this gem of a flavor?
Vanilla Custard - Gives the missing vanilla twinge we felt it was missing. CAP Custard has this intangible fullness and vanilla/caramel punch that puts this recipe over the top.
Ethyl Maltol - Helps the Tobacco and apple not be too dry. Can be made without easily.
Got inspiration for this recipe from nom bongo but its not an exact clone. This recipe is more peach flavoured than the original but is still delicious! The mango and papaya help round out the peach, whilst the marshmallow gives it some light sweetness. If you want it a bit more creamy try adding 1% FLV greek yogurt.
