    Agreed. Gave mine a go after 4 days I think it was.

    All I got was strawberry.

    No toast, no butter.

    Just strawberry.

    It got out back in the cupboard for another week in hopes it gets better.

    If you want the remix to be the same as the OG Jam Monster, Use TFA Butter not CAP golden Butter.
    The TFA Butter also gives it that Neon Bright Yellow Glow.

    Thanks @Hallucinated_

    I’ll give this another go in a week or 2 and if still not happy I’ll use TFA and see what happens.

    I’m hoping the strawberry softens a bit and the other flavours pull through.

    @Paul33 i also found the strawberry to be a bit overpowering, but still a nice strawberry vape. Want to try and go down on the strawberry sc a smidgen to see, and the tfa butter sounds interesting as well. Only be mixing again next weekend due to health issue, but cannot wait.

    Hope you better soon @Room Fogger!!

    I agree. Strawberry could go down a touch I reckon. Still good but maybe time will sort it out.

    Gave my Strawberry Jam monster a go at 7 days seep and it is much better. Still a bit of that chemical taste but the butter and toast is slowly coming through. I just put a few drops of sweetener in since I noticed that mr Wayne got a heavy sweet tooth. But it can go with this one.

    Will leave it for a few more days. This one seems promising.

    Still not All Gold Strawberry jam. Bit disappointed on that. Maybe we should send him a bottle to taste what the real stuff is like.

    Glad it’s tasting a bit more promising!

    So this juice is atrting to taste really good after a longer steep.

    The strawberry isn’t ANYWHERE near as potent as it was a few days ago.

    I reckon in another week it’ll be awesome.

    Definitely is a week long steep. Think even 2 will be better. Don't know where they get SNV from.

    When I do mix it again think I'm going to lower the Cap Sweet Strawb by a little. And I see some guys suggest adding some INW Biscuit to bring out the toast a bit more. Will try with 0.5% and see what happens.

    A few small adjustments can make this one perfect.

    I made mine on 27 January.

    Definitely not a SNV @Adephi. Not at all.

    I’m gonna give it another week to see how much the strawberry drops off before I adjust that.

    Inw biscuit could work. Let me know if you add it and how it turns out.

    Hi guys

    As per request from @Adephi - he has asked me to move several posts from the other DIY thread into this newly created one. They have been moved and are above.

    He didn't want to clutter that other thread so I have helped out to move them.

    Thanks @Adephi

    Thanks @Silver .

    Think we might still discuss this recipe for a while and that it deserve its own thread.

    Good thinking @Adephi

    I think this recipe has potential for sure.

    I put it back in the dark recesses of my juice cupboard for a time out.

    The flavour is there like it really wants to try be awesome but seems like it’s holding back.

    @Adephi @Paul33 , want to mix another tester the weekend, and steep it for a month as it is currently.

    Also want to do a couple where I then drop the strawberry And less sweetener. Can do one with the biscuit as well, again guidance on % will be appreciated. Any recommendations regarding the drops would also be appreciated, thinking in the line of .25% less vs original. Waiting for the blueberry version, may get next week and want to do the same there. Maybe the extra time will do its magic, but also the tweaking may make it great for me, instead of just good.

    I also want to try it with tfa butter instead of cap golden, the greasy melted butter part is missing to me. Opinions on this?

    The suggestion on ATF was 1% INW Biscuit. But I will start with 0.5% first and go from there. It seems to be coming through already with steeping so don't want it to be too strong.

    The strawberry I will drop the CAP Sweet Strawberry from 3% to 2%. Not completely changing the profile just taking the one strawberry a bit down.

    Personally I never had the original. So I can't really compare. But in the video Wayne said TFA Butter can also be used. He used the CAP since he did not like the oily buttery taste.

    Thanks for that, I think of toast with butter as oily, so may suit my palate. And the strawberry is very pronounced vs the original, so down it goes. Now for that month of not tasting! If you are tasting the toast, I'll start with .25 on the biscuit, don't want it too dominant. I have a bud who does about 60 mls a week of the original, it's his favorite, so will het his opinion again once steeped.

    There is a general belief in DIY circles that people never want to let juices steep and won't mix your recipe if you state that it needs a two week steep. So recipe developers always understate their steeping time in the hope that more people will mix it.

    Tranceinate advises a 4 day steep for Simply Cannoli. Don't even think of touching it before 8 weeks. And even at 8 weeks, try to let it rest for another 8 weeks if you can. It never stops getting better.

    Wayne rates 'Sicle as SNV. skiddlz advises 5 days on God Milk. Both of those juices are 80% better at 3 months than at one week.

    Agree @RichJB , my juices are now starting to stay steeping for at least 3 weeks before I open them, and the simply Cannoli only gets better the longer it waits, the one I'm on now is a month old, but it's brother is still in the bin, no rush. Have a banana moon pie mixed in Nov, really enjoying it now as it is not overpowering, just perfect and smooth. Patience is starting to pay off!

    My 2c - I found this heavy on Strawberry, not enough butter and toast, before 2 weeks.

    I had one bottle at 4 days, and one after 2 weeks - I say it definitely needs 2 weeks.

    In terms of comparing it to the OG, which I've had loads, I prefer this one. To me the OG is an exaggerated Strawberry Jam butter and toast. Almost as if you let your child make the toast and they piled on the butter and Jam.

    This recipe is more subdued on the flavour profiles. I prefer it actually.
