Default Glycerin...

Hey guys kind of new to this forum, though I'd say hi before asking my question. I have a 32' KM Green Double pear and have recently bought a MYA QT for transport reasons.

Anyways, my question is this: I have some dried AF that i need to revive and i have heard a BIT of glycerin helps. Does anyone know if this would work?

Thank you in advance,
D4

Glycerin is what is put in tobacco to produce large clouds and won't replenish any flavor. Try honey or a light molasses if you want to add flavor back to your dried tobacco.

All I can think of is the song by Bush, haha. Thanks for getting that stuck in my head. And yes, that mixture should do quite well.

The flavor doesn't go away because the tobacco's dry. All honey and molasses do for flavor is add honey and molasses flavor.

If it's dry, mix in just enough glycerine to coat the tobacco - it'll look just a bit shiny under a strong light). Then put it in the microwave for a few seconds (for a full 250g package, about 45 sec.). When it dries out, the sugars in the molasses or honey it was made with start to crystalize. Addition of the glycerine and a bit of heat brings them back into solution.

If I'm prepping a full package, I like to let it cool down and settle for a bit. Preferably overnight.
If you're just fixing one bowl's worth, you shouldn't have to use the microwave. The heat from the coals should be enough.
