put the about 5g into the bowl (fluffy). the bowl should be half-full ^^
then take 3 layers of tin foil and put 2 smaller pieces of the coals on top of the bowl.
maybe you have to use a windcover.

I have issues with AF as well since I'm so used to Starbuzz. The only one I haven't had a problem is AF Grape. I'll be trying your method PCServe. Thanks.

Fill the bowl 3/4 of the way.
and score and break 3/4 of the finger coal.
make sure it's lit completely

What kind of hookah do you have and what coals are you using?

You really just need two layers of foil just to keep the tobacco from scorching

NEVER use milk...It has nothing to do with getting a lot smoke....It just bubbles and messes up your hookah

If you wanna learn how to et up your hookah, watch my vid:

milk is okay. the smoke becomes more mild. but be careful, just use 50% milk and 50% water, or it bubbles up to the stem and into the hose

Hehe I even try a teaspoon of milk and the rest is water+ice and it still bubbles. That's why I always stay away from putting milk into the base...Unless its horchata :P

It never bubbles and it makes the smoke very sweet and smooth

I use soymilk and it bubbles, but not much, just really small bubbles. I didn't even dilute the soymilk, but i had little straws to create a diffuser sort of thing. If you're gonna use soymilk, make sure you have some sort of diffuser to make the bubbles smaller

You hippy! LOL

Let your shisha acclimate for a couple of hours, pack it fluffy to just below the rim of the bowl, use 1 layer of Reynolds Heavy Duty foil, poke alot of holes with a round toothpick, use 1/4 - 1/2 stick of natural charcoal and a windcover. Thick smoke will follow.
