    Lemon Curd.
    CAP Vanilla Custard V1 - 8%
    LA Lemonade - 2%
    INW Biscuit - 1%
    FLV Milk and Honey - 0.8%
    TFA Vanilla Swirl - 2%

    This recipe was my take on a thick lemon curd with a thin biscuit base.
    The Inawera biscuit serves really well here at only 1% to provide the base.
    The bulk of the flavour is made with the vanilla custard, with the vanilla swirl complimenting the thickness with a lighter top note.
    I searched for a while for a flavour that gives creams and custards a more milky flavour with a hint of honey (that isn't like cat piss....). The Flavorah Milk and Honey works well here for just that, and in fact, I also think it provides the biscuit with another layer.

    The real star of this recipe is the LA Lemonade.
    I have started using this flavour a LOT in my mixes, as it is hands down the best lemon flavour I have found. So much so I have started ordering litres direct from Lorann.
    At only 2% the Lemonade gives a strong and tart lemon bite that works in with the custard and cream to complete the thick, tart curd.

    As always, my mixes are made at 70/30 VG/PG.

    I highly recommend getting your hands on LA Lemonade.
    If you like lemon flavours, this is one of the best. FW is no comparison (and it has a tendency to separate).

    The milk and honey is another flavour I would deem a little obscure, but is worth having a small bottle of, as I can see it being very diverse.
    You could sub it out here for 1% sweet cream, but you would lose a little of the magic.

    Ordering litres!!

    A man in love with his craft and prepared to suffer for it.
    I can only imagine ordering litres of anything in one go as I'm sure I'd be wearing it as soon as I walked through the door.

    Hey @rupert , I didnt know where to put this but I was chatting to @Posterboy today on the phone and he told me how much he loved the juice that you donated to the last fundraiser and he won - he has now ordered the full range of Deity Vapours juice. I gave away the sample you sent at the meet - so didnt get to try it, Kind Posterboy is going to give me some 5ml samples to try.
    Will let you know how I go :)
    Anyway just thought I would let you know your prize went to a good home!

    Thanks Pippi :)
    I am really glad that he liked the prizes, and we will be happy to donate pries for other raffles in the future :)
    I also hope you enjoy the flavours too.

    Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

    LOL I order either 10ml, 100ml or 1L, 10ml to test a new concentrate 100ml or 1L if it passes my testing.
    If it is something i will use a lot I ordr 1L if it is something I use to spice up other flavors (in other words in small amounts) then 100ml is usually plenty.

    Yeah fair enough.

    I actually keep forgetting than both yourself and Rupert are juice vendors. Therefore you both would use buckets more than your average vaper.

    While it is true that my concentrate purchasing is due to my making juices now, I will unequivocally state that I am a DIY-er first and foremost :)
    The only reason I ever started branching out was due to demand. I don't need to sell juice (I make bugger all from it), I do it because people want it and I got sick of sending out samples at my own cost :D :D :D

    I like tinkering with new recipes and flavours, and as regulations get tighter around the world, there is becoming more and more of a need for DIY-ers to share their knowledge.

    Your last paragraph just about sums my opinion up on you Sir Rupert.

    A crazy chemist you may be but you're also a person with a lot of good in him too.

    You should put your hand up for Prime Minister as I'd vote for you.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge as I know you've certainly helped me in more ways than one.
    I also hope you win lotto and have your best Christmas and New Year to date!

    Enough crawling and back to being a miserable old git for me now.

    A good name for a juice.

    Ruperts " Your are making me blush"

    Do you think this would work with the Molinberry milk and honey (Winnie) - they recommend a dilution of 6% ? Flavorah Milk and Honey says 2-5%.... so would that be .9% do you think ?

    Haha, how about a banana slightly nestling a fuzzy peach?
    Now, thats making me blush :D

    Would be worth a try I think :) Maybe hit it at 1% and see how it tastes.
