So I got a week from a generous forum member ( @macamatic ) as my order has not shipped yet and wanted to share my thoughts over the next few days.
Initial Batch making - I don’t have a pitcher or scoop, so I measured 2 Liters of water in a pitcher and marked a line. Not the most accurate, but its what I did. Next I put about an inch of lukewarm water in the pitcher, mixed in 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and poured the whole bag in. I used a whisk to mix it up and then added the additional water. I let it soak about 12 hours overnight. Next morning I added the oil and whisked it together and poured about a liter of it in my eco vessel.
Initial Taste - Holy batman that is SWEET and vanilla-ie. I am usually pretty offended by sucraolse, but I did not get any aftertaste from it, but the vanilla taste is almost too much at first. I tried some more and the vanilla kinda evened out, but still hit me pretty bad on the sweet scale. The grit wasn’t bad at all and didn’t bother me. The batter taste that others described matched with what I thought as well. I typically enjoy bitter things, so I would probably enjoy it with much less flavor, but I definitely don’t see this as flavor neutral.
Doctored Taste - I have a lot of ceylon cinnamon on hand that I bought a month ago just for this event (and baking…), so I mixed quarter of a teaspoon in my bottle and shook it up. The taste MUCH improved and seemed more balanced. I added another quarter teaspoon and it had a tiny bit of a cinnamon taste, which I am perfectly ok with. I also figure this will help keep my blood sugar from spiking as much.
I will post again later on feelings and side effects.
