Default another newb question-sorry

Hi there, just wondering whether the tobacco juice should be dripping from the stem into the water?

Thanks.

not necessarily.. its ok if it drips on its own. but adding so much glycerin that makes it so much drippy. and that is why the hookah's stem smells bad due to all the juices, and you have to clean it ....

I think it is generally dripping on its own, i try to balance the amount of 'juice' and tobacco. I clean it after every use so i don't think it will be a problem?

Some juice dripping is not a problem. If there is some extra juice visible in the tobacco jar, after I load a bowl, I always pour that juice directly on the tobacco in the bowl.

If you are smoking a juicy shisha it will usually drip down the stem or hold on the grommet. Then when you remove the bowl the juice ends up on the hookah stem and in the tray. It's normal, but messy.

As everyone else said it's normal. Cleaning it out good with some lemon juice would help with all the odors.

No need to be sorry for asking questions. Thats what we are here for. As all you want in my opinion.

Its completely normal...But what sux about it is that it makes the water turn into the color the tobacco is dyed into and it makes your smoke taste nasty.

Hehe that is what phunnel bowl are made for...to stop that from happening ^_^

BTW NEVER use milk! It just makes the water bubble and it messes up your hookah. Just add more coals and use cold water and you will get thick smoke

And even those don't cure it completely.

i use the phunnel bowl, as long as you dont overpack you wont get flow of juice out.

the juice is the flavor and glycerin, it going down the stem isn't bad, but youre losing flavor and smoke.

You can still get juice in the stem, even with a phunnel bowl.

Using a bowl, you will get some juice in the stem of your hookah, it is not a big deal ... just be sure to clean your hookah after each use.

Cheers!
