INW Yes We Cheesecake

Just wanting to know if anyone has done notes for INW Yes We Cheesecake.

I have done a SFT at 3% and even after a month I get a strong coconut from this. It’s not totally unpleasant but also not great if you know what I mean. I mixed 50/50 with a WF Vanilla Custard so ened up @1.5% of each but still can’t shake that coconut taste…

Any thoughts or ideas on how to tame it?

Yup there is coconut in YWCC

Yes, We Cheesecake Inawera 1-1.5
This is one of my fav cheesecakes. It is a full cheesecake with a great balance of graham and cheesecake very creamy, hints of coconut. excellent mouthfeel and texture. Needs a little settle time to be at its best.

Drop it back a little. If you use it lower and pair it with another cheesecake the coconut will still be there but only hints and will add to the creaminess.
What do you have?

Thanks @woftam, mixed my 3% 24/11 so thought it may have been enough time but obviously too strong regardless.

I have TPA CCGC, FW CC and CAP NYCC. Also have Strawberry Cheesecake (SC) (WF) Which isn’t very strawberry to me.

Sorry…, don’t know if it would work or not, as I haven’t used INWsYWCC…, but most times I have made something cheesecake, I mix a little FLV brie cheese in to boost;)… maybe tht would cover up tht coconut flavor…

if you a shooting for a plain cheesecake try 1:1 Cap NY with YWCC 1-1.5 of each - if would want hints of sb and coconut use the WF (which is also an excellent cc)

You could also consider if you have any of the following
Hangsen Italian cream will sell the cream cheese a little more (.3-.5%)
Greek Yogurt FLV (.3-.5%) will also help

Try it with TFA ccgc, it boosts the cheesy aspect to me… or FA nycc

FA nycc

Don’t have the Italian Cream or the Greek Yoghurt, but the FW CC adds a good cheese note at lowish percentages.

The SBCC might be a good option too. I have plenty of each Cheesecake qty wise so can experiment with them all.

I don’t have this and don’t think I could bring myself to get it either… lol.

Just throwing my two cents out there Simon would probably help you better though!

Thanks @St3v0, the more the merrier. I welcome all advice as that’s how we all become better mixers.

My all time fave cheesecake is LorAnn. Not saying run out and buy it, but if it happens to catch your eye at some point - maybe even a small bottle, I’d suspect you wouldn’t regret it. It pairs very well with pretty much all other cheesecake flavors.

Brie is not at all what you might be thinking on, @woftam
It’s a mild cheese, definitely cheese, but I use it more for the mouthfeel I can pull from it at lower amounts… around .2% up to .4% in combo with Greek Yogurt at .12% or 3 drops in 30ml, with flv Cheesecake between .8% up to 1.4% turns that cheesecake flv has that tries to be an upscale cheesecake into something a bit more believable, and tastier. Some pastry zest with graham cracker can complete it for a cheap quick “greasy spoon” type restaurant… if you add some Starch Base to smooth the graham cracker into something home style… so many ways one could spin a really believable cheesecake. :slight_smile:

brie, used at .8% along with the cheesecake at .4% with sweet fig and some cinnamon crunch… is fantastic too :smiley: try some milk and honey with that at .6% and you have something delish!

I’ve used the Yes We CC at up to 2% Max I think, and found the coconut note comes through in everything except when I’ve used it with Lemon which seems to help cancel out the coconut, at least for me.
I do like a coconut note in some of my CC mixes but when I don’t I’ve been using Vanilla Custard CC (OOO) :ok_hand:

I just got WF Lemon Squares so might see how that pairs with it. Might make something nice between the 2 of them. Cheers mate.

I went through the same issues with the coconut. I don’t mind coconut but the gamma lactones I am sensitive to. Other than taming it like was suggested you could try MB Cheesecake which does have some light lemon notes or LA cheesecake which can get like a bubblegum note but again I am sensitive to some of these notes. There is always WF strawberry cheesecake so it depends on what you are aiming for. Let us know if you need more ideas. :slight_smile:

Thanks @lukeloop. I have the WF SCC so that will be my first pairing to try. Was also thinking of trying it with TPA CCGC and a splash of FW CC to see what happens. Otherwise I can always use it really low as an accent in Custards. Did you get your GC today?
