/u/Philosaphucker makes Grack Juice
/u/Bobbysavage asks what outer space tastes like
/u/ID10-T answers "Grack Juice with Bavarian Cream instead of Cactus."
I mix it and feel that the grape is too strong.
/u/ID10-T dubs it "Galaxy Grape"
It's Galaxy Grape. It's what outer space tastes like. It's cold and weird and kinda purple.
Grape to taste, but don't use as much as in Grack Juice. I enjoy it as low as 1% but my senses are so tender.
Also the koolada will freeze you, just like space would. That one's to taste, too.
There's one word that captivates this vape: balanced. It's sweet, but not too much. It's tangy, but not too much. It has punchy, vibrant fruits and berries - not too many to overwhelm, not too few to not leave you guessing - and it's not harsh. It's really creamy, but not in the heavy cloying custard kind of way. It's also not an innovative flavor profile per se, but it's still unlike anything I've had.
This tastes more like a smoothie that's meant to be drunk than a straight up yogurt meant to be eaten. It's suuppeerrr smooth throughout the vape and really leaves me craving for another drag every time.
The yogurts and butter cream create a suprisingly thick, slightly sweet and perfectly tangy cream base which works well with the strong, dark and tart Harvest Berry, the sort of candylike Kiwi and the Blueberry Extra that bends the berry notes away from the blackcurrant in Harvest Berry and towards realistic forest fruits. EM takes away the chalkiness in the yogurt. I got the idea of using FA Kiwi in this recipe from Killberry Yogurt by MikeC / VHM, that Kiwi has got some SERIOUS secret ingredient potential going on.
Mix this. You won't regret it.
Overnight steep - optimal at 3 days. After that, I don't notice any significant changes.
I have two recipes to which I always fall back to. This is the other one.
This was the love child of getting tired to unbearable throat hit from fruit vapes. I decided to combine the softest fruits I knew TPA - Strawberry (ripe), TPA Banana Cream and TPA Jackfruit. Golden Pineapple came in later, because it's not harsh at these percentages and fits like a glove in here, and vanilla Custard was the last nail to the flavor coffin. I fiddled around with the ratios (and you can too), but these percentages make the most pleasing balance to me.
Pineapple can go up to 3% before accumulating annoying throat hit.
Jackfruit is perfect at 2%
Banana Cream works at 2-3%
Strawberry (ripe) at 4-5.5%
Vanilla custard to taste, but over 1.5% imparts a custard taste and can make the vape too thick and sweet. Under 0.5% and you'll just be better without.
This is a familiar flavor profile to many, nothing new. Strawberry, banana and something tropical. It's sweet, smooth and delicious. The Jackfruit makes this the amazing vape it is. These are all the notes you need:
TPA Jackfruit - The best tropical flavor I've tried, and the star of this recipe
TPA Banana Cream - Delicious and creamy
TPA Strawberry (ripe) - Sweet and soft
CAP Golden Pineapple - Fruity top note
CAP Vanilla Custard V1 - Perfect thickening agent
I started this one almost a year ago and I held this back for a few months until this September because I always though it's not ready, but to hell with it. I enjoy it and my friends enjoy it.
I give you BB-8, the recipe that tries very hard to be a mango lassi and tastes like the feeling you get when you watch BB-8 roll around in The Force Awakens.
Coconut/Cream/Yogurt - Lactones/cold cream/yogurt. CAP Creamy yogurt didn't have enough tang to not be Yoplait, so Greek Yogurt is there to support. It's still not very tangy but it's not supposed to be.
Mango/Sweet Mango/Dragon Fruit - percentages from /u/bigted209's "The Mango!". I lieu of INW Mango, I tried INW Dragon Fruit and that filled the top note tropical hole which TPA and CAP mangos leave behind. Nice.
Cardamom - Gotta have that cardamom. /u/CheebaSteeba says it's overpowering even at 0.0something. Someone somewhere said that that could be because of INW Mango. If you're scared of cardamom, omit it or try at ridiculously low percentages. You? You like it at 0.25% or lower.
Sweetener (Kinda optional) - TPA Sweetener is 5% sucralose, 5% maltol, and it does fit in here, because there's nothing fruity/sugary sweet in here otherwise. CAP Sweet Mango is sweet, but it's only that over-ripe thick sweetness. You need a bit of sugar. Maltol can give a bit of jammy sweetness, which doesn't bother me but I could live without it. Can be replaced with your favorite sweetener. I'm guessing CAP Super Sweet at 0.25-0.5 would be perfect.
I like numbers.
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.
