    Hi all,

    Seems to be a lot of DIY'ers on here, but not too many seem to be sharing recipes at the moment. All those that aren't planning on starting their own juice lines in future, could we maybe revive this section and flood it with idea's and recipes?

    Let's all be mad scientists and share our little "Frankenstein's"

    :devil:

    Awesome Idea! :D

    I'll start. ;)

    Blueberry banana mix

    8% VM Banana
    8% MBV Blueberry
    6% VM Cream
    1 Drop EM for every 5ml

    Air it for 12 hours before steeping it for 2 weeks.

    Enjoy!

    *VM = Vapour Mountain
    **MBV = Mount Baker Vapor (import from USA)
    *** EM = Ethyl Maltol aka. Sweetener

    Peach Rooibos:
    concentrates from VM

    Peach 10%
    Rooibos 5%

    I found the rooibos really needs time to pull through.

    Give it at least 2 weeks.

    One of my favorites so far

    Uncle Uke's Pineapple:

    TFA Pineapple 3%
    TFA Sweet Cream 3%

    (For more fruity taste, switch to 4% pineapple and 2% sweet cream)

    Chilled Apple Sours...
    Did not think this would work, but has become my ADV... Lovely.

    55% VG / 45% PG

    5% Apple (TFA from SkyBlue)
    2% Sours
    1% Koolada
    1% Menthol

    I use this in a Sub Tank, Not sure how it will be on Drippers etc
    Shake and Vape... Or leave it to Mature a little... dont know what that is like, I make batches of 50ml and clean it out before a week passes :)

    Started this one at 8% total flavoring, but I found the pear too harsh and in your face. Funny thing is, @Melinda warned me that pineapple has a big throat hit and can overpower other flavors easily. I find this to be true of pear and not pineapple in my case. I dropped it to 6% total, substituted the Bavarian cream with sweet cream and it is better. Think I will drop thepear even further on the next batch and increase the raspberry and coconut a bit.

    Might go back to adding Bavarian cream again and maybe skip the sweet cream and just get some EM. Haven't played with additives yet, and have only been using TFA flavors from Skyblue. Wish the'd stock kiwi flavor.... Really want to make a kiwi/menthol mix..... "wink wink, nudge nudge"

    Also mixed up my own variation of Tropical Ice on Friday, and liking it.
    Used the 60% menthol/PG that Skyblue now stock and adjusted the percentage to get around 8 drops/10ml

    I've made a few "pining Juliet" clones and the TFA Pineapple is an absolute throat killer! I'm still trying to find a way of calming it down without adding "smooth" to the mix, but I don't think it's gonna happen.

    An apple/kiwi/coolada combo could also be a winner.

    Played around with a new NET as well. Got some Mocha Cavendish from JJ Cale tobacconist in Clearwater last week. Mixed 15g tobacco with 25ml PG, 25ml VG and 25ml Vodka. Gave it a stir and popped the glass container in the slow cooker with the lid off (on the container, not the slow cooker). Filled slow cooker about half way and let it simmer on LOW through the night. Switched off in the morning and let the mix cool in the cooker. Switched on again next evening and repeated process.

    Mixed it in at 20% to a mix of 50/50 PG/VG. Added about 1 drop of brown vinegar per ml-ish.
    Next time I will mix in 25% NET, needs a bit of kick. Currently experimenting wiht different fruit flavors around the 4% mark to add to it. Trying to create something similar to Tark's Rasputin. Definitely a dryer vape than Rasputin and much less sweet.
    Again, may need some EM to perfect it.

    Funny that pineapple doesn't bother me at all. Could be all the years on the Car-watch Camels that has made me immune to it :D

    I'm too scared to do my own NET's. It's that whole not knowing how much nicotine is in the final mix that will kill me. I'm just gonna stick to NET's from Valley Vapour until I feel I can tackle it on my own ;)

    Everyone is different. I think that Melinda's Nilla Custard has a very harsh throat hit, but almost all others on the forum don't seem to think so... Each to their won I guess.

    Great thread btw. I love the idea of DIY, and am trying to get everyone I know to try it out for themselves. With so many different perspectives and inputs, you can get some great recipes you'd never even have thought of before!

    Pear is a really overpowering flavour, but I really love this mix.
    First mix was 12% pear but was way too harsh so I toned it down a bit.

    Creamy Pear

    Pear TFA 9%
    Bavarian Cream TFA 5%

    Was great after 3 days steeping, a little bit better after a week. Sadly, I enjoyed it so much that the bottle didn't last much longer.

    This next one is still a work in progress. Its already on Version 5.
    Its called Panana Cream.

    Peanut Butter TFA 8%
    Banana TFA 5%
    Bavarian Cream 2%
    To which I add 2 drops of Dulch de Leche TFA per 30ml. (Optional)

    My ADV after at least a week of steeping.

    I brewed a Strawnilla V2 and a Pearnilla this weekend.

    I think they could work, and i'll post then. If not i will tweak and post the outcome.

    @Viper_SA The 15% Coconut I understand why you went with the 15%, however becarefull of a perfumy taste to your liquids 15% is a high for a TFA Concentrate. I would like to suggest a touch (0.5% - 1%) of TFA French vanilla or Vanilla Swirl just to lift the subtle flavour of the TFA Cocnut.

    @Melinda thanks, I wouldn't try that with some of the other flavors, but the cocnut doesn't really kick. Still have it steeping on 0mg, so I might try the dreaded vanilla. For some reason vanilla is not a flavor I enjoy vaping though....

    My DIY contribution towards this thread, I made this juice over Desember and it was mildly successful with some of my testers, some LOVED it and other thought it was ok, in all fairness it went up against Happy Holidays and Ambrosia. I called it Curacau:-

    TFA Bavarian Cream 4%
    TFA Ethyl Maltol 3%
    TFA Sweet Cream 2%
    CAP Sweet Strawberry 5%
    TFA Vanilla Custard 8%

    At the lower % I'm suggesting it should not really add lots of flavour to the liquid it just lifts the coconut a little bit so you don't have to use 15% of the flavour. I really battled with the coconut and the only way I could get some flavour out of it was to add some french vanilla, suggested Vanilla Swirl because its just vanilla with out the frills and may work a bit better.
