    If you like the way it tastes, give it a shot. So to speak. ;)

    I don't use that TFA flavor, so I can't say for sure. I would recommend using the same amount. You can always add more later if it's not enough, but it's a minor ingredient, so a little variation shouldn't wreck it.

    Friend is looking for a Peach Cobbler and found this:) I have everything but Brandy, I have Jamaican Rum, would that work or should I skip Brandy all together. Cant wait to try this!

    I don't consider Rum and Brandy at all interchangeable. If you leave it out, maybe increase some other flavor to compensate, or increase all by 50%. But it's better if you use the Brandy.

    I omit for now and order some Brandy next time I order. Thanks again! I will post my thoughts after a few weeks of steeping.:)

    I haven't used Lorann's Brandy flavor. FA's is pretty darned strong, especially when it's fresh. I'm sure 0.5% of Lorann's is not too much, so if nobody pops in with a better answer, just start there & add more if you want it boozier.

    This is my first time commenting ever on VU, and I am just blown away with HIC's recipe's! I've been using them for months now, and there hasn't been a single recipe that let me down, so hat's off! I'm very happy with them. I have a question, I was wondering if there was a substitute for the apricot. I have everything but that.

    How about FA Peach - plain Peach, not White. I used Apricot here because I like it so much with Brandy, but Peach is pretty similar.

    P.S. Welcome to VU!

    I agree, though I must say I don't like all the flavor profiles. But the ones I like are fantastic. In my opinion, the fact that most are ready to vape in a day or two just raises them a few levels as well.

    PS, give Joy 7-10 days.

    Thanks! Great to be here, this is where I come to learn DIY, and has been very handy. Every time I make something and share it with friends, they are just blown away. All from tips I've learned here.

    BTW, I've had the best remarks from your PB recipe. But I've added .5% FA honey to it, remarkable! I've played around with other flavors like adding banana (you know, like a banana with PB on it), but it's kinda hard to get a distinct banana flavor in this recipe. Any suggestions?

    Anyway, I have White Peach, the other FA Peach is on its way. That might actually work, but at like .25%? And why wouldn't White Peach work? Because of its complexity and strength?

    I just got Joy in a few days ago! I got so much going on in my flavor box haha! But I forgot why I got it. Maybe I got it for a stand alone? IDFK LOL

    Go to HIC's website. Under the free section there is a PDF in which he gives detailed explanations of the FA Flavours. Also, if you were to buy some of his recipes, he provides even more information as to how the flavors interact and effect each other. It's invaluable information that will allow you to understand how it all works. Just last week I finally nailed a Cinnamon Bun recipe I've been working on for months. It was because I finally understood what the flavors were adding to the recipe.

    Yeah, I was looking at it, and it talks about the complexity of White Peach, but that can mean a lot of things really. I think it's because FA Peach isn't as intense, therefore blends together better rather than overpowering the other flavors. But asking would confirm my thinking, instead of guessing and wasting a lot through experimenting.

    I look at it this way, it's similar to fixing a car right the first time. If I can fix it right the first time, rather than crossing my fingers and hoping for the best on a crappy repair, I become more efficient lol

    Oh, and congrats on the Cinnamon Bun recipe, do you try to use FA flavors only as well?

    No, I'll use anything, I don't discriminate. But I do like FA very much. However, there are some flavors that just can't be beat such as Capella's Vanilla Custard or Inawera Biscuit.

    It's not really the strength, but White Peach just stands out more in recipes, and it doesn't taste as "ripe" as plain Peach. Since it doesn't taste as ripe, it's not as convincing for a baked fruit flavor.

    There are tons of recipes that use it. I once made the mistake of putting in 8% of it. Didn't know until I vaped it. I still grimace when I think about it.

    Oh yeah? Sounds similar to the mistake I made putting 2 drops of FA Condensed Milk into my tank of HIC's Peanut Butter. Talk about a flavor that never disappears! Man, I tasted that for hrs and smelled it in my room for 3 days. It has got to be the worst flavor ever. I seen HIC say that it's "a tough flavor"? What an understatement, it's just flat out ugh! The thought of it to this day makes me sick.

    Anyway, tell me a couple of good names of recipe's that use Biscuit. I'll find the recipe somewhere.

    I've always thought Squonk does a fine job naming recipes. :yes:

    Especially those that contain INW Biscuit.

    It's a snap. Type... cookie ... in the Search box on this page. Look for Squonk in the results.

    2% INW Shisha Strawberry
    1% INW Biscuit
    1% INW Shisha Vanilla (or sub with another brand vanilla)

    Kinda normal for DIY to be always missing some flavors:(.

    But you could try using 4% TFA Ripe + 4% CAP Sweet
    Or 3-4% FA Strawberry
    If you don't have the Shisha Vanilla just use 1-2% of another brand Vanilla

    Adding 1% INW Biscuit to most any fruit recipe adds something unique IMO.
    2-3% FA Cookie is a close second choice...

    You just reminded me, and I mixed 4% TFA Ripe, and FA Vanilla Tahiti. Vaped, and lovin it!

    I gotta tell you, I made the most amazing Unicorn Milk!
    I haven't been able to put it down! It's definitely the best juice I've ever vaped! And it's my own too (well, for the most part) I owe it to HIC for the Home Vape Cheesecake Base for the idea. But I made up my own Graham Cracker Crust Base, similar to how you make the Cheesecake Base. I think I made a winner.

    But now that I tried your Strawberry Biscuit, I can take a moment to let the Unicorn Milk steep a few more days lol
