    Hi @shaunnadan , It took a while for me to thank you on the oak steeping because I wanted to give you the best feedback on it that I could.

    The delay was primarily because I didn’t have the concentrates to assemble the Eishsmijter at the time and also had to steep it properly to do a fair comparison to the oak steeped version. I also stored the oak steeped version in the fridge to inhibit the steeping while waiting for the new batch to mature.

    In my opinion the oak steeping vastly improves the product. It has a full body feel on a full lung inhale and a pleasant feel and flavour on the exhale with all the flavours being detectible. The fruitiness is diminished a tad but this can be corrected by modifying the fruit content a bit when mixing. I am sensitive to throat hit, and the original Eishsmijter gives me too much throat hit on inhale. The oak steeping mellows this perfectly.

    So all in all steeping in oak seems to be a worthwhile procedure, and I will now be making oak barrels for steeping.

    Thank you for bringing this method to my attention, I really appreciate it:)

    Thought these three recipes would be good to try and make.So far made (and steeped) Tooth Chipper and its very nice and normally I don't like banana flavour,next up Eishsmijter.

    @Soutie Can I sub CAP VIBC for FW or TFA VBIC in your Tooth Chipper recipe? Also can I sub TFA Coconut DX for FA Coconut?

    You should be able to sub the VBIC quite easily, its quite a small percentage and is really there to support the banana and flesh out the cream. as for the he coconut, I haven't tried subbing FA coconut but if anything it should be better than the TFA DX, I would try it at around 1% to start and work your way up from there.
