Default Vase Filling

I wanna know how much do I have to fill the vase of my MYA QT. Up to what point should there be water??

I've heard some people use milk, wtf, what's the point of it?

Also I was checking out a video on how to fill a bowl correctly. But according to what I've been reading this doesn't seem correct, because the guy packs the bowl with too much shisha and I've read that the shisha can not touch the foil, and also this guy from the video puts 2 foils on the bowl instead of one. please correct me if I'm wrong and point me in the right direction. Here is the video:

Thanks!

Water should be 1/2" to 1" above bottom of downstem.

I only use water in my base, not even ice. Milk is just messy and dumb IMO.

I/2 to 1 Inch above bottom of downstem

Foil High Density Reynolds foil 1 if tobacco is not heat tolerant use two layers that is to help with heat management Tobacco should not touch the foil though some people fill the bowl that high normally leads to harsh smoke through burning tobacco

Milk can be used but the vase must be washed after the session for sour milk pongs Same as alcohol added to the base water and other flavorants and Ice

The heavier foil use 1 if a lighter normal household foil use two the thickness of the foil helps with your heat management so that the tobacco cooks not burns. Thicker foil more even heat spread better heat conductivity and takes longer to heat up but retains more heat. the thinner the foil heats up quicker more prone to burning the tobacco thus the second layer to aid the first (make it thicker) Some tobaccos are more forgiving than others in the heat department and others need more heat Desi Murli needs the heat to get going then less heat to keep going Nakhla is more forgiving with heat where Al Waha burns easily that is what the 1 or two layers of foil helps with

i have seen people say as little as .25 inch up to 1 or more inches. i usually am on the lesser side with my mya mini since the pull is choppier since the base is small

as to foil, regular foil most people use 2 layers, the heavy duty usually one, heavy strength is supposedly the rename but i think they are different thickness, if you burning or getting a lot of harshness then switch to 2 layers

I fill to the bottom "line" of the dome part on my Mya QT every time I use it. It's a very easy draw I'm guessing because of the small surface area.
