I didn't have the Vienna so just followed HIC's instruction to increase something else to 2%. I did that with the Catalan and it was bloody delicious!Gah, I wanted to make this, ordered everything but somehow Catalan Cream didn't make it into my basket. Must've been a space cadet moment.
Cool, I have everything else but catalan. I think what I'll try, is increase the other ones by .5% each, instead of doubling one of them. But, I am definitely going to order the catalan!

This recipe is kind of like a caprese salad. Sometimes simple is better when using the best of ingredients. In this case, simple is just the best
FA Catalan is something I always keep in stock. It just works so well with so many things that I use it when I'm stuck and am never disappointed with what it adds.Cool, I have everything else but catalan.

Yeah, I thought I had ordered it, but apparently not. HIC notes that this is a shake & vape, so I may make it tonight!FA Catalan is something I always keep in stock. It just works so well with so many things that I use it when I'm stuck and am never disappointed with what it adds.
I like the idea of increasing the other flavours by 0.5%. Please let me know how it works!
4th of may is STAR WARS DAY! AND THAT'S TODAY BRO! Happy 2 years of no cigs to you bro!Hi Hic
Long time follower on the other site, stopped smoking 4th May this year, having read through and through your recipes i finally took the plunge into DIY.
You have as i have read inspired alot of folk to get into DIY including me now.
The above recipe i have made at your 4% flavour and i enjoyed it, that 4ml went fast. Made another 4ml at 5% and wow wow wow lol.
All i can say is this is great and i have now made 30ml 30/70 pg/vg 6mg nic.
Thanks so much for all your dedication and hard work i have joined this forum to follow you and the gang and hope to join in on the Flavour Art topic.
some time soon been lurkin long enough.
Did you add Catalan Cream?I have been lurking for a while, ordered flavors (thanks HIC!!) and this was my first recipe. I was very excited - I like creamy vapes so I thought I would love this and I really, really wanted to love it but...grrr... I don't! I used 2% Vienna Cream since I didn't have Fresh Cream (which I swore I had ordered...). I'm mixing by weight (was a baker in a former life) and shook everything well beforehand. I think .5 % Tiramisu and 1% Vienna Cream would have worked better for me as the vanilla is way overwhelming. I'm getting chocolate and alcohol (vanilla - your notes are right on about this one!). In any case, I'm wondering how I can mellow what I have left out/lighten it up/sweeten it perhaps?
This site is great. Thanks in advance!
Did you add Catalan Cream?
I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.
Well Fresh Cream is what mellows it, but maybe like you said could try raising Catalan by .5-1%, but I wouldn't go higher than that myself.Yes - I followed the recipe along with the suggestion of doubling down on 1 cream if you don't have all 3. I just read his notes on Tiramisu and I should have used less. I also should have doubled down on the Catalan Cream instead. I followed the recipe without even smelling the flavors beforehand! Had I done so I would have definitely cut it in half. Vienna Cream and Tiramisu are both VERY strong. This really is like cooking! Lesson learned. I was hoping to hit a home run right off the bat - oh well. I am looking forward to making more mistakes though...
Do you have any suggestions for what I could add to mellow the chocolate flavor?
So you have an android phone?Ok. I feel like an idiot and rightfully so. I just realized what I did wrong with this recipe. I didn't use a calculator - I did the math myself....enough said? I used 10% Tiramisu (!!!!!!!!), 20% Vienna Cream (!!!!), 10% Catalan Cream (!!!!!). Wow! No wonder it tasted REALLY BAD and no wonder I had to change the O rings on my tank this morning!!! LOL Instead of thinking in %, I was thinking - ok 10 ml total, 1 part flavor 1, 1 part flavor 2....I'm glad I figured that out because I've been looking forward to trying out HIC's recipes. They all sound really good and most likely are, unless, of course, you failed math 101 and you're an idiot like myself! lol (Please tell me I'm not the only who has done something like this their first time around).
I realized the error of my ways when today I decided to just make my own quick blend of pineapple, banana and coconut. After I mixed it and I looked at the amounts I wrote down it suddenly hit me that 1ml of 10ml = 10% and NOT 1%!! My recipe: 6g base, 2g pineapple, 1.5g banana and .5g coconut. Can anyone tell me how I can make that vapeable without making 100ml of the above. Add a percentage of that to a base I suppose - but how much?
The reason I didn't use a calculator is because I'm on a Mac and I can't seem to find a decent one compatible, not to mention one that will take into account using a pre-mixed base. I hope someone can help me there. Is there one out there???
Sigh....glad no one can see me blushing in the corner with my dunce cap on...
No - an iPhone. Am I correct that I can use a calculator that's assuming I need to mix and just ignore the PG/VG ratios and only look at the flavor ratios? Total noob! (obviously)
Speaking of vaping hardware, I remember you mentioning somewhere that you like using tanks. What tanks are your favorite, and do you usually go with max VG? I have trouble with most tanks and max VG juices :/I like the extra sweetness and smoothness of max-VG, but you should use whatever ratio suits you and your vaping hardware best.

Hello HIC thanks for the recipes this is will be my first try DIY mixing, before that can i ask you, if i don't have FA fresh cream can I sub it with another FA flavor like marshmallow or another TFA flavor, because I'm From Indonesia, in my country is hard to find FA vendor with complete flavor line than TFA, sorry for my bad grammar, thank you.
Sure, you can use FA Marshmallow instead! If you have a favorite TFA cream flavor, one that's fairly neutral or vanilla-like, that would also work fine (but might require up to twice as much).
1% FlavourArt Vienna Cream
1% FlavourArt Catalan Cream
1% FlavourArt Tiramisu
1% FlavourArt Fresh Cream
Shake 'n vape!
If you don't have all of these Cream flavors, just use more of one of the others. Extra Vienna adds a sweet, creamy vanilla; extra Catalan adds vanilla, cinnamon, and caramel;
I didn't have the Vienna so just followed HIC's instruction to increase something else to 2%. I did that with the Catalan and it was bloody delicious!
had to boost the flavour concentration to 10% because I got so much used to these flavours.
