Well, from what I've read, the colder you make your water, the thicker the smoke you will get, but you pay for it with flavor. And of course the other way around.

just put grape juice or soda in the base.

But really, if you think that the smoke should be sweeter, its probably jus that the tobacco isnt up to snuff, atleast for you.

I like to add some mint to the bowl with my grape, adds a little complexity and sweetness. Mizo White Grape + Mizo Mint = pure win

You either want smoke or flavor. Cold-Smoke, Warm-flavor. Well, unless you go with the White Grape+ Mizo Mint combo, you'll lick your lips all night.

Definitely true. By adding flavors to the water, you lose the true flavor of the tobacco. But whatever you choose, make sure it is ICE COLD, it will assure a smooth comfortable smoke.

I don't ever put anything in my bases but water. I've heard of putting pretty much anything flavored like what your tobacco is in the base, but I just refuse to do it, the colder the water, the less flavor you'll get.

If you want thicker smoke without extra flavor, add milk to the water. I'd say 1/4 milk, 3/4 ice water. But make sure you clean it soon after you use it so the milk in the water doesn't spoil.
