I've used ccw blackcurrant before, it's a good concentrate but you need to use more and it's more of a fruit taste than a cordial flavour

RE: how is your mixing going?
Going to try a fruit crumble this weekend. Thinking random fruit, probably strawberry, bunch of cream, some digestive biscuit and my mind has just blanked on the other ingredient. Ah yes, butter. Flavour ratio 8:2:2:1 so for 10ml at 20% flavour that's 2ml total flavourings, being 1.2ml fruit, 0.3ml cream and biscuit and 0.1ml butter. We'll see how that does.

It turns out I don't have any butter flavouring so I used Bavarian cream instead. Now speed steeping in the ultrasonic. Time to clean a dripper.

I'll chuck some new wicks in the Nucleus and find out in a bit.

Got it in a dripper - thus far i can only taste the berries - couldn't find any strawberry so used Forest Fruits instead. I think this one might need steeping or reducing the fruit ratio, or both.

Don, I need to know where that biscuit concentrate you sent came from.....

I also found the forest fruits I tried over powering, its definitely one to be gentle with.

When I can get some more concentrates I'll mix up a big batch of mish mash to send some samples out. Thats my adv of choice.

France. Use a brewer with automatic translation such as Chrome and you should be able to figure it out. http://www.solubarome.fr/
Their vanilla is excellent too. That was the one I used for the Quick Custard. Martin reckons it is better than the one using the CCW vanilla.

RE: how is your mixing going?
Got some more 100ml bottles of CCW flavours incoming. The Forest Fruits is potent. Don't go above 10-12%. The cream seems to me to be the same as the Nanny Bakes one. The vanilla is OK but probably isn't as good as the solubarome one above.

I have incoming, strawberry, pineapple, mango, custard and apple crumble. And just got cream, vanilla, white chocolate (which is a sort of general purpose sweetener) and Forest Fruits. I doubt the custard will be as good as the Capella one but it is way, way cheaper. Must mix up another batch of GVC clone for use in November. It takes that long to steep.

The Forest Fruits isn't as nice as the one DarkStar and Lickwid use. I got a bunch of chemical flavoured juices from a pound for ten ml place. Can't complain about 100ml for £10.50 delivered. They'll be just fine for giving away. Smile

The Solubarome vanilla is 35 euros plus delivery for a litre. That's pretty cheap. About £28/US$45. For a litre! Might just get that if the shipping isn't too crazy.

Just ordered a litre of the vanilla which cost me 39 euros delivered. Or about £3.10 for 100ml! Fortunately I can read enough French to figure out the site as I couldn't actually buy anything via Google Translate. That's me sorted for Quick Custard for a decade or thereabouts. Quite happy to pass on some at cost.

The biscuit flavour is 25 euros per litre plus 14 euros shipping - same as the vanilla. It's probably worth buying at least 100ml to cover the shipping costs.

RE: how is your mixing going?
I would like to present my very first batch of home brew. I call it "Orange Cream Sicle" Steeped for one month, and i must admit it's not bad.
Recipe:
20% PG
80% VG
5 drops of Orange Flavor
6 drops of cream flavor
No nicotine

[Image: <a href=][Image: 20150531_192355_zps1juiwnkz.jpg]" />

YES I know. I spelled sicle wrong on the bottle. Actually, I don't think sicle is even a word. How do you make the pic smaller. Damn! that's way too big.

ROCK ON! VAPE ON! Music2
