Mixed an experimental juice this morning as always looking for a good vanilla custard.
10% TPA Vanilla Custard
3% TPA French Vanilla Deluxe
2% CAP French Vanilla
Mixed at max VG and 3mg.
The TPA Vanilla Custard was 10% because I had that amount left in a bottle.
The TPA French Vanilla Deluxe at 3% to add a strong vanilla note and creaminess to it.
The CAP French Vanilla as it has custard notes to add more depth to that perspective of the mix.
Now to wait and see what becomes of it… lol
What kind of experiments do you do mix up and why?
Most of the time mine are just random ideas or boredom in my ADV mixes.
Today I am playing with cap van custard because I steeped a shitload of it dor almost a year and ended up with not much love for it. I use it as an additive, but I want to freaking like it more than I do.
If I belnd it with some other creams it is okay. Something with the custard, and its only cap that does this to me, makes me a tad nauseous. I also can use it low to “thicken” bakeries like in pecan pie or apple pie. Inw Custard does well with me. As long as I have been mixing i have never tried the tpa or fa offerings. I think I would probably like the fa custard if it indeed has the slight citrus qualities.
It would also be helpful to know if you are trying to mix for a pod or Subohm. I’ve done TPA VC II at 8% successfully for my Subohm devices, some single coil, most dual coil. because I use a GC, I am not as limited to steep times as many. Flavor development happens MUCH faster.
I find that strawberry gives me heartburn if I have too much, but no problem with CAP VC 1. Have heard some people have issues with the diacetyl so that may be the problem for you.
I use TPA VC 1 and 2 in mixes, not so much as standalone though. CAP French Vanilla reminds me of a rich custard at 6 - 8% by itself too. Just been testing WF Vanilla Custard (SC) and quite nice at 3% but needed a longer steep than I thought before it developed.
The normal FA has a very slight lemon note to me, the Premium apparently does not. Have not used the INW as my usual supplier doesn’t stock it.
