Default Coconut Milk

After all this talk about stuff to put in the base, i got to experimenting. This is what i found.


- Orange Juice does add a certain sweet & sour quality to the over-all flavor in your smoke, but nothing commonly noticeable

- Red Wine compliments grape flavors, reducing the floral aspect of that flavor if it has any, or making black grape flavors a little more bitter. The wine does not make any flavor better or worse.

- Milk is a waste of time. I was, in fact, using skim milk, so maybe the aspect of the presence of fat would play in. Anyway. milk did nothing to the taste of the smoke or the richness of the smoke. It simply was just a filler.

This is where i was hit by surprise.
- Coconut Milk. I have been one of the people who says that putting anything other than water or water+ice in your hookah is just for kicks. I had used Coconut milk before, but more as an offhand kind of thing. Last night i actually tried to create a good mix of diluted coconut milk. So I ended up going with 1/4 Coconut milk in and Acrylic Mya base.
I brought it down to my room, screwed on the stem, and then wondered what to put in the bowl. I had a poll, it ended up coming to SB White Peach.

This was the single most amazing session of my life. The Coconut Milk in fact does create much richer, fuller, whiter, thicker smoke. Everyone was just purely amazed at what was being let out of their mouths.
Britney: " Oh my God, I didn't know when it was going to end, i got scared!"
Nick: " Damn..."
Matt: "Dude, I'm the fucking cloud lord! Watch this!"
Garet: "My Kamehameha has never been better. SHIT! Ever. Wheres the spinach salad man?"

I'll post up pics to prove it soon.

Coconut Milk is an amazing base liquid to use. Along with the amazing clouds, after you inhale you have a very creamy sensation in your mouth, mainly in the back of the throat. Not Cottonmouth-Hock-a-Loogey creamy, just a creamy tatse, which was purely Fantastic. The Peach was a perfect blend.

I don't know what actually makes the smoke thicker, but while in the base the smoke matched the color of the pure white Coconut Milk, it was amazing.

I am going to assume it has something to do with the amount of Fat in coconut milk. It contains a much higher level of fat then Whole Milk, maybe the lipids do some binding...?

After my experience cleaning a hookah with regular 1-month old milk......I don't know if I can even feel comfortable putting anything with the word milk into a base of a hookah. Nah, I'm kidding I am really excited to try this out.

Things to Buy:

Burner to light coals.
Coconut Milk.

The stuff i bought didn't put out any flavor, it put out a kind of feeling, maybe a texture (which might be a bad way to explain it). I guess one would describe it at a creamy "taste" but there wasn't a noticeable coconut taste in the smoke i could find.

I would describe it as the smoke tastes how it looks. Be careful though you guys, it does bubble up if you add too much, and this stuff gets chunky when sitting. (Not rotten chunky, just clumps. In the can it may even come in a lump.)

that line right there would work well with a advertisement. the DBZ kids would be like, "i want to try this thing called hookah!"

That kid has that little smoke maneuver down pat, it's his signature move as of now.

On myspace, the caption of him doing it says "G-spot blows his load".

And i picked a better word then clumping Milk... it Coagulates! Oh yeah.

Update!

I measured and experimented, and have found the perfect proportions of CM and Water.

My Mya Acrylic needs 28 ounces of water, that's the perfect amount. I filled it with 20 ounces and added 8 ounces of CM and sloshed it around in order to mix it. This measurement DOES NOT bubble up into the stem and hose ports, a common problem with creamy base liquids. It will get close to the top but will never go over!

So subtract 8 ounces of water from your total amount and fill the space with coconut milk, mix it around.

Your total amount will vary, so i recommend experimenting, it's very fun when every pull you take looks like your breathing milk.

Zensilk - there are different types of Coconut Milk (even lite coco milk). I base my choice on if I can hear it sloshing around when I shake the can. I bought a can once that was nothing more than a solid mass of slimly white goo... gross is an understatement! It wouldn't break apart even in a blender - ended up tossing. I'm not sure if it was old, bad, or what - but it was unusable.

Don't just check the Chinese section, check for a Indian and look in the Mexican isle too. I'm buying some extra tonight along w/ a bottle of mexican Sangria & Apple soda. Should be great for base mixes!

Thai Kitchen is great, but it pretty expensive. The lowest one i found, the one i used and still use is called JFC Coconut Milk. It's about 2 bucks a can. Cheaper if you buy at costco in bulk if you can find it.. of course.

I wouldn't recommend a Lite CM just because i think alot of the factors have to do with the amount of Fat in the milk.

And i am sure a high quality Milk would do even better.
