Default If i dont pack my bowl all the way...

Will i not taste the shisha that much? Cause i just tested out new strawberry shisha and i didnt pack the bowl all the way cause it was just a test run not a session.

So basically my question is "Will i not taste my shisha much if i don't pack the bowl all the way?"

as long as however high you packed it is flush to the bottom and the sides it should work just fine

im sorry i should've been more specific. I didnt pack it at all, like i just took some out of the box, sprinkled it to the bottom, and lit it up.

So basically the bowl was a little less than half full.

that prob going to effect the taste, 1, you gotta mix it up as well as you can and 2, very little heat reaches all the way to the bottom so it need good side contact to cook well

I've done that before and the taste isn't there all the way. Then you need extra heat to get it to even heat up...and then you can easily burn it. Now, I just pack a bowl right even if I'm the only one smoking it. I may waste some but I feel it's better to have the full experience of the flavor instead of a dumbed down version to save shisha.

Oh ok. It's hard testing flavors like that. I did it with AF Apple and it sucked. So recently I packed a bowl with AF Apple and it still sucked. LOL

If you do that then you have to have a lot more heat so that it will reach the bottom. Even then I'm not entirely sure.

What bowl are you using? Aside from the Nakhla overpack method (and Tangiers, from what I hear) you shouldn't be "packing" it at all. If you sprinkle it in up to the point where is isn't touching the foil at all, that shouldn't be much more than halfway in a standard bowl anyway...

I routinely do this for short sessions of about 45 min, and to save shisha and it works great. There is no loss of flavor, no added heat is needed, and it works for me. My setup is an egyptian bowl, 1/4 full of shisha, one layer of heavy duty foil, spiral hole pattern, and usually it takes about 8-10 draws to get it going. I use two ******* hookah coals and a windcover. Smoke is thick as normal. Might want to give it a try.

my setup is a small lightup pumpkin hookah. i dont know the name but heres the pic of it. Same bowl so yeah. Like i said before i didn't pack in the tobacco. but i didn't put much in anyways. So i wasnt purposely trying to use a certain "method" or anything. If anything it was all unintentional.
