Default questions about mixing fluids

i have heard all over the place about using other fluids than water in the base.

but i hear of so many different ratios. (I.e. 1:1 if its semi transparent, 2:1 (water/other fluid) if you cant see through it at all, straight if you can see right through it.)

i know that is a bit confusing, but if someone can give me a basic run down of mixing, cause i have wanted to try vitamin d milk, but i wasnt sure how much milk:water. or if even to mix it.

thanks alot guys.

dont put to much milk into the base because it will end up going in the hose...about 1 or 2 cap-fulls should be enough..with other liquids i will put it 100% juice and that works good

You might have better luck with cream and water mixture. I heard it is not as iffy as milk when its diluted with some water. It is all personal preference. If you want to do milk then by all means go for it. Personally I might use some half and half with a pint of water or something. That way it wouldn't get all up in my hose. I hope this helps! Happy Smokin!

Anyone ever put coffee in their base? I'm guessing you'd have to dilute it

Me too, the only and I mean ONLY thing that has been in my base besides water is soap or lemon juice/baking soda when I am cleaning it and ice on the very rare occasion. I am not one to throw all kinds of weird shit in my base to try and enhance the flavor. I don't think it even really does anything. My friends do it, and I couldn't tell the difference.

Whenever I mix the liquid in the base, I always use mostly water.
Something like 70/30 with red wine is quite nice with berry flavours, and this morning I added a tiny bit of lemon juice, which gave a nice little tang.

I had a really bad experience when mixing. Back when i knew relatively little about all things hookah, i decided that it would be a good idea to fill a base up with milk. It'll be alright, you'll get thicker smoke I thought... needless to say i got a mouthful of milk.
<_< >_>

I'll stick to water thanks.
