Throwback Thursday: TFA 2018 https://ift.tt/2C8QPYE

This is part of project I agreed to take on after it was pointed out that so many of the resources in sidebar and wiki are ancient. The idea is, rather than revising them myself, I'd post them here once per week to gather feedback on how to improve them. They belong to all of us, everyone should have a say in what they say.

Last week, we looked at a 4-year-old section of the wiki that contained 7-year-old recipes using only TFA flavors. Some of us had some cheap laughs (except that one guy who seemed pretty upset about our disrespect for our elders) and called for the recipes to be nuked from orbit, but some of us had some serious thoughts about the original intent and benefits of the recipe compilation. Some just wanted to replace it with a another compilation of cheap, simple recipes, but it seems like we have one of those weekly around here. Just search for "cheap" and "simple" using the customized google search in the sidebar that was provided by our new top mod/official overlord /u/InertiaCreeping (the mod team recently shed some dead weight, including that of our most useless founder).

There also appeared to be enough interest in a straight reboot of the old thread that I'm calling for that here and now.

Post your favorite all-TFA recipes here!

Post them in tables, post them with bullets, post them with ATF/ELR links, post them without ATF/ELR links, post them AS ATF/ELR links, post them with notes, post them without notes, post them if they're your own creations, post other people's' recipes that you've enjoyed, post them any way you like, just post them!

You can react to the recipes and discuss them after they're posted but top-level comments that aren't TFA-only recipes will get zapped.

Disclaimer: This might make it easier and less expensive for someone to do some entry-level mixing. Staying off the stinkies without spending beaucoup on juice is the most important thing, right? But for intermediate mixers, for best results, more often that not you should mix with varying flavors from different flavor houses. Each company does something better than another one. While mixing with just one brand may be cheaper, easier, or more accessible, it will not usually give you the best mix possible.

Note: It's been pointed out to me that doing only an all-TFA recipe compilation is unfair, as Capella and Flavor West are also pretty accessible and inexpensive. It's worth noting that if you break down the amount you're using in a mix, more concentrated flavors that come with a higher per-bottle price tag can actually be less expensive per mL used in recipes because due to their concentration. A flavor you typically use at 1% is cheaper than a flavor you typically use at 5% unless it's five times more expensive. But, we're talking entry-level here. And then there's the whole cost/benefit analysis of simply using the best flavor for the job at almost any cost. But the idea here is to get non-mixers mixing as easily and inexpensively as possible. So that's what Throwback Thursday will be for the upcoming two weeks before we move on to another topic. Get your FW and CAP recipes ready for the next two weeks.

Let's do this!
