Yes that is absolutely correct! Patience is the key my friend. Wash your hookah out and start off with moderate heat, and if you feel you need a bit more then add a bit and see how you come out. As long as the flavour is ok, you're good man. Don't worry about clouds just yet, flavour first. Also, Nakhla will get your head if you aren't used to it. Good luck my friend!
