Default How to get big clouds from Nakhla

Anyone know how to get big clouds from Nakhla double apple? Nakhla is by far my favorite but i always have trouble getting big clouds like some of the other brands (Romman, Laylina etc) because of its dryness......

That's just it. Nak is a dryer shisha that has a good pronounced flavor. All of these super wet shisha's have tons of veg. glycerin that produce the billowing smoke clouds you're accustomed to.

There's a couple of options -

Put a little honey or molasses in with the Nak. It's blasphemy, but will make a small difference.

I've noticed that putting coconut milk (cheaper alternative is the $3 pina colada mixers) in with the water in the base. About 2/3 water and 1/3 coconut milk. A lot of hookah lounges in the middle east use milk/cream in their bases along with the water, which I feel would do about the same (I'm just always worried about the milk warming up and souring over a long session).

Enjoy the flavor of Nak. That's what you're smoking it for.

edit: And I have noticed that some of the Nak in the glass jars tends to be a tad bit wetter, as stated above.

packing Nakhla DA tangiers style will produce great clouds and still give awesome flavor

Nakhla is pretty much the only shisha that I pack in my mod bowl cause it's pretty dry. I always pack it by grabbing a small pinch and dropping it In and I get awesome flavor and awesome clouds from it.

I just drop in in the bowl, then pack it down a little so it's pretty much online with the rim of my Egyptian bowl. Throw a single layer of foil over it and bang about 20 holes in it with a pin in the center with two qls on the outside. Thick enough clouds that I can't see in front of me lol

I usually use my KM tri-metal with a standard egyptian bowl with 2 ******* hookah ql's.

Nakhla never disappoints me.

Hey!!

No, i actually didnt! As I saw this thread, I quickly wanted to help out with a good tutorial on how to pack nak, but unfortunately i did not know that linking to foreign hookah forums was not allowed.
So Dunkel informed me about that and edited my post, now it looks like an introduction in the wrong place, but yeah....

greets
