I always eanted to try Yogi Original Granola but never had a chance so i decided to mix one my way.
CAP Cereal 27 Is the base for the toasted granola, its AP, toasted cereal and sweet, at 5 % its the perfect base.
TPA Rice Crunchies adds more AP to the mix and a darker cerral ttpe flavour to make it a bit more fuller and interesting.
WF Oats & Cream Cookie gives a tiny bit of a earthy oat flavour at the end and helps adding a bit of creaminess.
FA Nut Mix is the secret weapon it has a great generic, earthy and creamy nut flavour that tricks tour mind making this flavours above mix and taste like toasted granola bar with some nuts in it.
Fa Honey is top heavy and very strong, with 0.5 % you get a lot of honey flavour just how its suposed.. a lot.
Fa Maple darkens the honey and adds syrupy taste and sweetness, while the dry notes it has get blended with the grainy part of the mix.
CAP Super sweet Is essential as honey is basicly sugar so 0.75% + honey+ maple syrup you get that high amount of sweetness.
Jack Daniels Tennesse Whiskey, Lemonade and a splash of Triple sec.
The Bourbon Trifecta by ID10-T works wonderfully here The Charred oak and sweetness from flavorah gives a lot of autheticity to the mix with only 0.5% while Kentucky Bourbon and VTA Bourbon add sweet bourbon, booze notes and some extra woody flavour.
Flavorah Lemonade its so good.. here plays the role of the citrus lemon-limey lemonade.
VTA Orange Tang is our Triple Sec, mixed with the bourbon booze note from VTA Bourbon gives the illusion of adding triple sec and also brings some fizzy notes and sweetness to make up for the simple syrup as Flavorah is a pretty natural lemonade.
You can Omit Ws-23 to get extra booze notes as it kills the top booze note but this cocktail is served on ice so .. you choose.
( if you omit ws23 drop by half the sweetener)
After 8 are pretty slim thin mints with a dark chocolate and a goey fontant like mint, just an after dinner treat to clear your palate.
This recipe looks pretty simple but its super tasty and accurate.
FLV Creme de menthe has a nice creamy texture and hints of chocolate with a nice peppermint note , but the peppermint stands out and separates itself a bit too much sometimes.
Using Cap Double Chocolate V2 we add a nice dark chocolate note which tames down the pepperminty note blending it a bit better.
FLV Cream is so awsame, it adds silky smooth creamy texture that creates kind our fondant like texture thickening the creams.
OOO Powdered Sugar adds a little gritty sugar note to give realism to the minty fondant.
Sweetener is needed for the authenticity of the recipe, chocolate needs to be sweet and fondants are made of sugar.
Sweet Marshmallow ice cream with buttery clusters of cereal treats.
It's like cereal milk ice cream turned up to 11, has a thick buttery Vanilla marahmallow ice cream mouthfill with a soft a fluffy aftertaste, filled with grainy notes of rice krispies.
FW VBIC + TPA Vanilla Custard + TPA Marahmallow :
This is our fluffy Marshmallow Ice cream.
FW Vbic is just a fluffy vanilla cream, not much of an ice cream per se, and here comes pretty handy to turn it to a marshmallow ice cream.
TPA Vanilla Custard adds butter, and thickness while TPA Marshmallow contributes with sweetness, stickiness and gives the marshmallow flavour.
TPA Rice Crunchies + FA Pazzo Burlone:
Rice Crunchies are just Rice grainy cereal flavour from them we dont get much more ,but this gets even better with the addition of FA Pazzo Burlone, this one adds some extra bakery, milky notes that make an OK recipe turn into something really good.
Super sweet: with 0.5% and having marshmallow is enough but i use 0.75% as i want this heavy sweet taste like commercial juice has. Feel free to choose but marshmallow treat ice cream? This should be really sweet..
Orange Black Licorice ice cream.
A ribbon of black licorice swirled into an orange-flavored ice cream base gives this tiger its stripes.
Theres no need to re-invent the wheel so i used the trinity of Vanilla Ice Cream TPA Vanilla Swirl+ LB Vanilla Ice Cream + HS French Vanilla ice cream and added VTA Orange marmalade to give a bit of tangy zesty orange notes in combination with CAP Juicy Orange, as being a ver flat orange flavour works really well in this ice cream.
The interesting notes are given by the mixture of Licorice, FW ( Candy type) and CAP( More towards a clean Licorice Flavour).
Dont be afraid of getting too much licorice as it is pretty blended in the cream.
This e-liquid was a thing for me time ago and since then i tried to make a remix as close as possible but playing with coffee concentrates makes you hate mixing.
Now i think i got close enough to share it.
Salted Caramel Machiatto has a top heavy caramel/ Butterscotch note, bright and dark at the same time followed by a butter milky note and a lot of sweetener.. A LOT!! with a subtle coffee note lingering through the vape.
I have been trying a lot of coffee concentrates to find the exact one and finally realised that VTA Hard Crack Toffee is the coffee note in this e-juice and is not an actual coffee concentrate( this shit happens so much).
Coffee is barely noticeable in the original and so in this mix,
add 0.25% at a time to reach your own sweet spot. I personally like it more at 2-2.25% but trying to get close to the original 1.75% is enough.
They call for salted caramel but i get a Butterscotch sour tangyness with some bright Salted Caramel so thats what i did. I think the caramel note is better here than in the original while being a bit thicker and richer( not a bad thing though).
For the Milky Buttery Cream part im pretty sure its just VTA Coffee Milk Froth as its pretty subtle but noticeable and this flavour, with just a touch of it , delivers a nice rich butter creamy feeling.
The sweetness in this juice is nearly offensive for me now.. but back in the day i vaped just commercial juice and didn't think it was that high.
0.75% super sweet it quite spot on for my mix but i think 1% or even higher is used in the original helping that bitter/sour note i get that comes from super sweet.
So adjust to taste but 0.75%-1% is where you get closer to the original.
You can SNV as nothing needs to steep out or feels harsh or rough. I think its pretty tasty but after a week it gets better.
I may tweak some % as steeps a bit more so keep in mind this is not a 100% finished recipe.
I watch noted the other day @Alfredpudding mentioned that VTA Boysenberry was a straight on blue raspberry i had to try it out and F*ck man that was the missing link.
Lb Blue Raspberry is great but feels thin even at 8% but by adding 1.5-3% VTA Boysenberry you add more syrup without adding more water.
Wf Sour blue raspberry candy adds more blue raspberry flavour with candy texture while its a bit darker than LB's its really good.
1% Flv Berry blend is mainly to reinforce that berry background.
Add sweetener as desired i think it does better with 0.5% SS and 1% sweet candy, but it also goes really well with 0.75% Ss and no Sweet candy.
Ws-23 is optional i usually use it on my fruity mixes.
Stixx Mixx Dark fire = KENTUCKY VIRGINIAN as it isnt on ATF.
Vanilla milk and caramel with a hint of actual Kentucky flue cured tobacco leaf. This award-winning flavor can be best described as the King of Tobacco. A caramel vape-uccino with subtle tobacco on the exhale.
If you haven't got the DIYFS Holy Grail and Vanilla V1s you should do well with V2s, although it wouldnt have the same complexity it will still be pretty tasty and sure will be creamier.( mind that some % tweaking might be needed due to flavour muting and intesity of the concentrates)
I can't remeber the sweetness on the original Django but 0.25% super sweet or a low amount of other sweeteners will make the flavour more sarurated and full so it wont hurt feel free to adjust.
This ejuice has so much story behind .. Long story short,
TPD, Changed the eliquid flavour, NETs.
So if you enjoyed the original Django this is a Tribute to that eliquid trying to emulate every aspect we all enjoyed from it and sure you will enjoy now.
I have to give a special mention to @horizonism on ELR for all the effort put to recreate the original Django over the years,
hope you will enjoy this one.
•Capellas Vanilla Custard V1: im using v1 instead of v2 mostly for the steep time( pretty sure v2 was in the original mix), v2 needs over 4 weeks to get rid of the butiryc acid note. If you want to avoid DAAP use v2.( be ready to let it sit at least for a month)
•Stixx Mixx Kentucky Virginian:
This is not in the original mix but is the closest i could find and it resembles quite well the kentucky tobacco used in Django with dark woody notes.
1% is pretty low for a NET concentrate but OG Django wasn't really a full tobacco vape and it will be very present in the vape.
Mix & Steep:
The original Django was a 60VG/40PG but this mix will also do well in 70VG/30PG.
I Suggest at least a week of steep but its better after 10-15 days.
Best results after 20-30 days.
