Default Coconut Milk = Big Clouds?

I have heard rumors of putting coconut milk in the vase mixed with the water will give you extremely creamy and thick clouds, has anyone ever tried this?

Wow, im a newb around here and I swear Ive heard it all already...from alcohol to coconut milk. From most of the videos of reviews as well as my personal experience...water, maybe cold water is all you need along with proper heat management to get good clouds. Honestly, Ive had sessions with not so thick clouds where the flavor was just as good...so I dont pay attention (too much) on whether the clouds look really thick or not. As far as creamy...well bud, not sure what else you may be trying while smoking...oh wait, those were just rumors.

Try putting Honey or Vinegar in the base.

Your tongue and olfactory receptors (Those things in your head which decode aromas and flavors) have trouble picking up the flavor of things that are cold.

Take ice cream... When it melts, it tastes way sweeter and stronger than when frozen. This is because it is over-flavored to compensate for the fact that being frozen reduces your ability to pick up the flavor.

Personally, I don't think anything belongs in the base but liquid water. If you need to add a bunch of goofy crap to your base to make your session enjoyable, you should probably think about trying a different tobacco or coal first.

Some claim that chilling the base (Whether by adding ice or going to inane lengths to create goofy smoke-cooling devices) provides a thicker smoke, but I don't buy it. I get plenty thick smoke with lukewarm water.

Very interesting to read about the temperature of the water having an effect on the flavor. Also, I'm always down to try something new, as long as the clean up is worth the trouble.

I've heard the same rumors of coconut milk. All I know is that sometimes depending on your location and the store, coconut milk can be quite expensive for what it is. I've also tried regular milk and I really noticed no change in clouds. All the milk did was bubble up and almost go up my hose!

ive tried it with regular milk. it really just screwed up the liquid level in the base. it started to bubble and then get in the hose. it was a pain in the arse to clean too i didnt notice a significant difference in clouds or thickness to warrant doing it again.

cheers

you know if you put acetone in your base, you get a huge buzz and then you die.

Water man, stick with it. anything else can mess with your pipe, or waste said fluid. Stick with years of tradition, this wheel aint broken.
