    VapeBar - Substitute Juice Forum

    I have now mourned the demise of VapeBar for the requisite amount of time, and as much as I miss them it is probably time to move on.

    Vapers, just like me, that totally relied on VapeBar's Couldron Ejuice for their ADV will, by now, need alternatives.

    This thread has been started so that AVF members can tell each other about the Juices, Concentrates, Mixes and/or Recipes that they are using now that are similar to the VapeBar juices they used to use.

    Some of VapeBar's range is still available from other vendors, but their own custom 'Couldron' brand of juice is not.

    To kick this thread off I will start with the most popular juice from the VapeBar 'Couldron' range:

    VapeBar Product:
    Couldron - Peach Tea

    Best substitute found so far:
    House of Vape - Georgia Peach concentrate
    Mixed at 20% with PG (80%) to make a Doubler

    Plus +
    Same dry Peachy overtones
    Not fragrant, scented or sweet

    Minus -

    Not quite as tart in the aftertaste as the original Peach Tea
    No 'Tea' overtones in the aftertaste.

    My View
    Not quite the same, but a pretty good (and not too dissimilar) substitute as an ADV

    A good Peach Tea is not that difficult to make.

    I recommend TFA Juice peach, FlavourWest Iced Tea or Health Cabin Black tea, a few drops of TFA Raspberry, and some TFA sucralose sweetner. You may not be able to get it as smooth as MJ does it, but its a good temporary substitute. The tea needs to be a background note- so half of what you use for peach.

    Im much more interested in a Black Briar substitute. Almost every Blackcurrant and Blackberry I have taste nothing like Black Briar, even in different mix combinations. Black Briar has a unique dark berry taste that I cant even come close to. If anyone has any concentrate suggestions, please post them.

    The first time I met MJ I told him I like tobacco flavours and he told me you're gonna like fruit LOL
    He was 100% right

    Thanks for the tip on the Peach Tea Marty, I still have some Black Briar and know what you mean

    This should be in the ejuice forum, not vapebar's old subforum, just saying...

    Wicked mint. You have to play with the percentages as both are very strong. I mixed to 70/30 and 8mg nic

    OK I understand that selling hardware is probably not a good idea in WA these days, but surely selling his cauldron juices would still be ok? I too am missing the Peach Tea... and having not ever mixed my own flavours, I'm a bit lost

    Yeah I mentioned that as well, also a fan of peach tea, and wizards brew too. But apparently (said by others) most of their income was from hardware/other supplies. Regardless, I'm sure they wouldn't want to be working under a cloud, potential of raids etc to disrupt them even if all hardware removed from sale/site/premises.
