Re: another newb question-sorry
Its completely normal...But what sux about it is that it makes the water turn into the color the tobacco is dyed into and it makes your smoke taste nasty.
Hehe that is what phunnel bowl are made for...to stop that from happening ^_^
BTW NEVER use milk! It just makes the water bubble and it messes up your hookah. Just add more coals and use cold water and you will get thick smoke
