    Capella vanilla custard

    Just had some arrive. I was pretty excited as I absolutely loved the vanilla custard that mrsgruffy sent me (her brew).

    This tastes nothing like it. It's just doesn't have the creaminess or sweetness.

    Does it need a sweetener or a higher concentration? I made this at 18% in a 75:25 PG:VG mix. Fortunately I only made a 4ml test batch.

    Any suggestions?

    I only mix it at 5%, and add a little EM, or sweetener.

    The creaminess doesn't come out till its steeped. 2-4 weeks

    Yeah can't say I'm a fan I have about 60ml mixed and another full 10ml bottle of the concentrate. Can't see myself vaping it any time soon.
    I j st vape it when I ran out of other juices for backup.

    Dalmas, put it in the back of the drawer and forget about it for a couple of weeks, after you make it up. It does need a bit of time to stew.

    Chuck 1 drop of ethyl maltal in for each ml.
    Im mucking around at the moment adding extra vanilla and a touch of butterscotch in 17% vanilla custard.
    Steeping is a must for this flavor.

    I can't taste any flavours at 5%. I guess I like strong flavours. I mix almost all my juice at 15% plus.

    I really like sweet flavours. My main vape is butterscotch. Any reason why you don't like it arth_d?

    Yep, I'll definitely let one steep once I get it right but I don't really want to put away a 4ml batch to stew then have to wait another 3 weeks for a 30ml bottle to be ready.

    Are you just mixing flavours then vaping them or steeping them for 4 days then vaping?

    It should take about 2-4 weeks to perfect a flavour. You need to see what it does over time.

    For instance I'm trying to make a perfect apple pie recipe. Yesterday it was all apple and today it's all crust and cinnamon

    I also have a new recipe in the makings called "pink stuff" its actually pink in colour. It's filled with summer fruit flavours which will make all the senses go mad!

    Mix a tiny batch, shake the bejeebers out of it, chuck the bottle in the ultrasonic cleaner for a couple of cycles to vibrate the bejeebers out of it then try a some on the dripping atty. With most I have made you get a sense for where it will go. This just seems much more bland than most.

    5% Ethyl malto added and steep. It will be pretty good after that I reckon.
