Re: Acclimation time
I don't accilmate for hours - when i get new shisha, i open it and "fluff" it up, picking out stems and stuff, then seal it away.
Only Tangiers have I accilmated, which did help.
As many of you know, I live in a humid area. Every great once and awhile, I will notice a "known" good smoke goes wrong or funny - first thing that always pops in my head "What's the weather doing?". In areas of great humidity (or great lack of) it may slightly alter the shisha on a day to day basis, but as to the intital accilmation - I don't bother. My shisha always gets alittle dry no matter what I put it in anyways, so I don't need to "help" it along any more than necessary.
