Default Just curious...

I was just scanning older posts and a few thoughts popped into my head.

1. How often do you all smoke your hookah. Is it multiple times per day or a few times per week?

2. How long can you store tobacco based Shisha assuming it is well sealed and fresh when purchased?

3. Should it be store at room temp or in a refrigerator?

4. Do you see anything wrong with using those metal screens over using home made foil? I notice the holes are a bit large but I have never had any problems with ashes coming through.

5. To many questions for one post?

Thanks for any input...

1) Almost every day
2) I don't know. I have some that is almost 3 years old and smoking perfectly.
3) Do not put it in the fridge, it has a natural ability to drain humidity causing the tobacco to dry out over time.
4) If there was a problem they wouldn't be on the market long. I don't use them but someone must be for them to keep selling them.
5) Never, next question?

1)Everyday if i can, but at least every other day
2)I've had stuff for 2 years old and smokes fine, different tobaaccos probably taste different times
3)Room Temp, the shisha gets a shock coming from the fridge and then onto hot bowl, probably burns a lot quicker as well
4)Its all personal preference, most people dont like the metal screens as they cant seem to get them to work properly such as me, but if it works well for you carry on using them.
5)Nah keep the questions coming

I don't ever use foil anymore, I love my metal screens. They're absolutely perfect for me.

depends on mood and company, sometimes daily sometimes not for weeks, but when i do smoke its always atleast 3 bowls.

2. How long can you store tobacco based Shisha assuming it is well sealed and fresh when purchased?
I've yet to have any go bad (had some mint for over a year)
3. Should it be store at room temp or in a refrigerator?
I find its best at room temp air sealed.
4. Do you see anything wrong with using those metal screens over using home made foil? I notice the holes are a bit large but I have never had any problems with ashes coming through.
I keep a few around myself in case of an alluminum foil crisis mixed with a nobody wants to drie anywhere crisis.they seem to work well fo rme, but the foil has much better heat managment.
5. To many questions for one post?
i prefer a wall of questions in one post then 600 posts ith one question each, makes it harder to read the thread.
Thanks for any input...Anytime
filler text, read qoute you silly gooses

1. Averaged out probably once a day. When I am sitting down with friends for a while we often go through the first bowl and then wait a bit and strike up a second.

2. Indefinite. It depends on the blend. Honey, molasses and glycerin are natural preservatives so you never have to really worry about rotting so long as it's stored properly. Flavor can fade if the brand uses certain techniques. Like Fantasia whose flavors are alcohol based. Eventually the flavor can fade in my experience but it still takes a really long time.

3. Room temp. There is no advantage to storing it cold and the fridge will just suck out the moisture which is kind of one of the most important components in shisha tobacco.


4. Holes too big, carbon build up, rust and they are not versatile. Only usable on bowls that fit them and almost never is it the bowl I want to use. Also like I was hinting at eventually they rust and become unusable.

5. Yes. I hate you and will never be your friend now.

1. At least once a day. Sometime 3 -4 a day
2. Not sure never sits long enough to go bad
3. Room temp Seems to work best, just remember to stir it up before you use it.
4. Metal screen on my Med Egyptian and Vortex, Foiol on my Mini clay (screens don't fit it.
5. The only stupid question is the one thats never asked, so fire away.

1) Probably three times a year, because I'm always working so darn much.
2) A year in a cool dark place
3) Room temp
4)Never used them now I'm going to try them this week
5)A question is a sign of a healthy mind, no questions are a sign of dead brain cells.
Love this forum.

Thanks for any input...
1- at school once a day 2 sometimes 3 bowls in a row (3 hours)
2-some say 6 months, other say 2 years. if its sealed well you can push it as far as it stays moist. if its sealed it will last well over 2 years depending on how the manufacture seals it
3-room temp, never in the fridge, it will dehydrate
4-some people like the screens but most dont use them, i dont use them because i dont want to have to deal with figuring them out. as to home made foil do you have a rolling mill in your garage?
