Also, a lot of pipe tobaccos have a corn syrup casing that's best removed before attempting to prepare moassel out of it.

For what it's worth, making your own is a lot of work, but I've found it more rewarding to smoke than 90%+ of tobaccos on the commercial market.
Coyo mentioned this post( there are two methods listed the latter(post 14) is the most recent and has been having the most success. Coyo got it right, there are a lot more steps to making the tobacco rather than just adding glycerin. hope this helps.
