Hot Seat Sunday — glasschalice468

Event

The thread that's Still Going™! This is an AMA thread with a twist – the 'victim' gets to name who is next up in the rotation.

There are some rules:

Try picking someone who hasn't gone yet

It has to be someone who actively posts here

No dead people (i.e. notcharlesmanson isn't eligible)

Preferably a name that people recognize, 'regular poster' means someone who is a) alive and b) has posted in the last three months

Complete the FAQ before posting

If you do the hot seat, you can add up to three names to the list of people who are potential victims.

Possible: /u/AlfredPudding, /u/odiedoodah, /u/Apexified, /u/enyawreklaw, /u/shyndo, u/NaCHeF, u/fieldgreens, u/duncanyoyo1

Already Done: /u/juthinc, /u/isuamadog, /u/humanpuck, /u/eyemakepizza, /u/ID10-T, /u/vApe_Escape, /u/mlNikon, /u/EdibleMalfunction, /u/Foment_Life, /u/Kittybit8, /u/Vishousness, /u/staybert, u/TeslaDelMar/, u/UnappreciatedRobot, u/modivin, u/Max-Savage, u/CheebaSteeba, u/Zany1337, /u/glasschalice468

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How'd you get your handle?

glasschalice468 was literally something I made up on the fly one day so that I could comment on some playstation game's subreddit. A chalice is just a fancy cup. As for everywhere else I'm RainbowDragon or just Dragon for short. Discord, ATF, ELR, ect…

How long have you been mixing for?

I'd like to start by telling the story of how I got into mixing. I spent about 60 bucks on 2 60ml bottles of Twisted's Pink Punch Lemonade. It's good but good grief was it sour. far too sour for me. Having spent all of my allotted moneys on this juice I wasn't about to give it away or dump it. I figured that I could dilute it and it would become more manageable. So I needed to find out what it was made out of. On the hunt I went and I found DiyorDie and, shortly after, this subreddit.

I started mixing in spring of 2019, almost immediately participating in the showdown in the discord on the blue team (w000 go blue!) along with staybert and alfredpudding (best teammates for a newbie). After that I have been involved in the community and loving it. I found out how easy and cheap it was. I also found out that I could probably make something to my tastes so much easier. no more wasting money on overpriced bottles roasting and oxidizing on my local b&m's shelves.

MTL or DTL?

Mostly DTL but I can swing both ways on occasion.

Current flavor or profile obsession?

The juice that I'm using most often right now is my own twist on a few popular recipes by other mixers that I published as Green Blood Soda. It's a fruity berry citrus mashup that is really nice to cleanse the palate for other things. My favorite profiles are actually bakeries though.

Most/Least disappointing flavors that was/not as expected?

Oh man, so I usually get flavors that have been tested and recommended by other mixers except for maybe a wild card that I threw into my cart. That is, until I was a guest on Noted for the Almonds episode and then again for Cookies. Doing testing like that where you grab all that you can find of a particular profile and sfting each and every one at a few different percentages is a whole 'nother animal than sfting something that you know is decent already but just want to get to know better. I have to say that about half were just awful and useless. I probably said the word "plastic" 14 times in that almond episode.

On that note, Solub Arome's Vanilla Custard Nougatine is absolutely fantastic and I wasnt really expecting much from it at all. I expected a fake vanilla and some weak vague milky dairy but what I got was this rich, thick eggy custard that is, honestly, the best vanilla custard that i've had the pleasure of trying. Ridiculously good.

The other side of that coin is MB Cookie Bite. Smelled so so good but tastes like somebody forgot the cookies were in the oven until they burned on the bottom. I was pretty disappointed.

Mixing Milestone?

I'm not sure about milestones here, I pretty much started out trying to make my own and trying a few of other peoples' recipes. I know that we all recommend that new mixers start by sfting and trying established recipes but that wasn't really my style. I like to do things my own way.

Recipes you admire/love?

I love Largo Milk by ediblemalfunction, Snickerdoodle Cookies by ID10-T, recently fell in love with Blueberry Lemon Cookie by the Developed guys.

White whale?

I've been working on this Pineapple Walnut Cake for like 6 months. I had to shelve the idea until I can go through some sfting of other pineapples.

How would you describe your mixing style?

My mixing style? Uh…well I suppose it's kind of like spicing food, I smell and taste each one and in my head I have that final painting of flavor that I'm trying to achieve which tells me how forward I want/need each one to be. Most of the time I just start with one flavor and decide what will compliment it, like, what it needs. Building each other flavor after it to fill in the gaps.

Advice for new mixers?

The best advice that I can give is the stuff we usually tell new mixers. Use a scale. Learn to love single flavor testing, don't skimp in this area because there is no short cut to getting to know your flavors better. DO NOT BUY FLAVORS BASED ON THE NAME ON THE LABEL. seriously. not all flavors from all vendors are even vapable. Do the research. Check the safety site. Example: NF Almond tastes like almonds down low but if you turn it up it tastes like cooked black cherries. I wouldn't know this if I hadn't tested at multiple percentages. Do the work. It pays off. Happy mixing guys.
