    My banana is a melon!

    Fooling around with some banana concentrates over the last few days. I have some from Noe's co-op, some Inawera and some ecigmodshop super concentrate. I was trying to get more banana into my banana custard, and went a bit overboard, and I now have a very melon flavour. Cantaloupe (rockmelon) more than watermelon. If you like melon, I'd recommend playing with banana concentrate LOL

    I guess it's the chemicals, A1. Loads of chemicals change their flavour depending on the concentration. Diacetyl, which many people choose not to use for vaping because it's been associated with bronciolitis obliterans, is deliciously custardy to start with and if you use a bit more, it tastes just like "I can't believe it's not butter!" which is why it was so popular in microwave popcorn (which is an abomination, and anyone who buys it should be killed and then revived to be killed again.)

    I have the banana cream pie super concentrate which I've just been trying recently and I would say it's not full on banana but I can't taste any cantelope/rock melon. Then again, people describe melon boba as tasting like watermelon and all I can taste is very strong cantelope.

    Didn't you know that everything is "upside down" here in Oz ? That obviously goes for taste too ha ha.

    On a more serious note I'll remember this post when I'm mucking around with my DIY. I've been hovering around 18-24% and considering going higher, but I've always wondered why I've rarely come across any recipes higher than 25% ..... maybe the answer is as youve mentioned, about the higher concentrations changing the taste to something totally different.

    i use LA Banana Cream Concentrate..... it tastes like banana at all strengths I've tried so far.... (up to 15%) My latest mix of my banana cream, I halved what I usually put in (5%).... steeping now, but I think the taste will not be muted too much

    Can you use it as a doubler MrsG? and top up with PG/VG/NIC to bring it back under control?

    interesting!

    but surely the banana concentrate on its own - ie unmixed does not smell like melon?

    id guess its probably the way it has interacted with whatever else is in the banana custard mix

    what other flavours are you using in the mix mrs g?

    ALL HAIL THE NANA!!!!!!! But seriously, banana is the single most recurring flavour in any mix I do. Y U SO GUD FOR?!?!?!
    I did make a raspberry/banana mix the other day that came out as a somewhat super sweet melony flavour, I gave it to my roommate. I'm more in to the whole super dark, rich flavours and I find that banana just adds an awesome creamy taste to any mix
