Re: More Desi Murli reviews please!
You only need to use a scalli mod if you use a funnel. I say that because i've never had a great funnel session without one.
I've found that the smoke production without glycerin is too little to satisfy Western smokers. I have also found that glycerin makes mixing much easier and clean up after a session easier.
If you end up using closer to 20g of DM rather then nearer to 25g you can cut back on both a bit. Naturally it's a matter of preference so you can always start with 1/8tsp (2.5g) of both molasses and glycerin and see if it suits you. If so stick with it, if not up it to my recommendations. I have noted that plain DM is a bit dryer then then others so I use slightly more with it then with the flavoured types.
DO NOT SMOKE DM AS IT WAS A WASHED MOASSEL!
