Default Agave Nectar

My Sb Pumpkin pie and Irish Cream were sent to me, and both were very dry for Sb. The Irish Cream was so dry, in fact, that it has no taste.

All i had to add today was htis stuff called Agave Nectar, anyone used it?

It's like less viscous and much sweeter than honey, but won't crystalize when left sitting for prolongued periods.

It works very very very well to make shisha wetter, although my Irish cream is pretty much beyond saving.

I just wanted to put this out here as a great thing to add to shisha in place of honey or glycerine, and it doesn't impart and other unwanted tastes. This stuff is syrup from an Agave Cactus, the same place Tequila comes from!

Check it out!

if it did many people would love it. sadly needs to be fermented

it should work fine but it does have a taste to it which may ruin the smoking experience if you do not like it. its why glycerin is used a lot because its taste is neurtal.

But when added too much it's soapy.

is glycerine what is naturally in the shisha, or is it just added to save dry shisha?

Glycerine is added to shisha.... But with my experience with making shisha I have noticed that glycerin is what actually smokes.... Plain tobacco and honey or corn syrup or molasses doesn't smoke... only when the glycerine is added did I ever get any smoke from it. only thing I can think of adding the honey is to make it wetter and stickier... glycerin is oilier and doesn't hold together as well... Both glycerin and honey are about as sweet tasting.
