Red face Too much shisha?

Can putting too much shisha in the bowl make it harsh?

Yes if you touch the foil the shisha can burn, or if you add too much heat you also risk burning it

It depends on the tobacco. There are a lot of people here that use an overpack method with Nakhla and get amazing resulsts.

Some shisha is more heat sensitive and will burn a lot easier, others can take more heat and still be fine. What brand are you using?

If you over pack the bowl too much I would suggest that after adding the coals you dont hit the hookah for about 5mins, let the top layer of shisha sear off. After that the shisha left will be just fine.

I've heard that after foiling up and before the pokeage of holes, you can hold the bowl in your hand and it back and forth in a downward motion to get some of the juice to touch the top of the foil so it lights easier? Was my friend talking bullcrap?

Also, is there any major difference to double foiling your bowl?

Having the juice or even some tobacco touching the foil will make heat transfer better but as others have said it is riskier to over heat and burn the tobacco.

Doubling of foil or using HD reduces the heat transfer from coals to the tobacco. It adds strength to the foil obviously and will change heat management. Personally if you can get good smoke using a single layer of regular foil, there is no benefit really to doubling or changing. I still prefer a single layer of Reynolds for all bowls and tobacco I use.

Yes, over packing can have negative results, as the shiisha gets charred very quickly. When someone else packs my bowl, I can tell in an instant if they over packed.
