Unhappy My Syrian Still Smells Of Brass - Any Ideas?

Hi Guys and Girls,

I got myself the following Shisha 2 weeks ago ( have smoked out of it twice (AF Watermelon and AF Grape) and the taste has been good.

I have cleaned it twice (Base soaked in hot water and washing powder, cleaning brush used for the detachable stem, soaked in warm water with washing powder, warm water then poured through the pipe and then brushed again), but when I pick up the pipe and smell it, I still get a nasty brass smell.

Is this simply because the stem is made out of brass or because I have failed to clean it properly?

I have followed Photolinger and others how to vids on cleaning, so am bamboozled as to this smell.

Any help is much appreciated!
