Default Glycerin Question

I have been debating whether to put some glycerin with my AF shisha to get real thick clouds, my question is, where can I pick some of this stuff up and do i mix in into a bowl or the whole batch of shisha and how much is needed? thanks...

GNC or any other health store. Some super markets carry it.

For one bowl, only a few drops I think and then mix up the shisha.

For like a whole tub...Maybe a few teaspoons? Not too sure

For those that can't find Glycerin locally (like me) I found it pretty cheap at this place...

Shipped it's $11.44 for 16 oz. A lifetime supply I'd guess! LOL

for 50g you take 1 teaspoon of glycerin ... for just 1 bowl its difficult
but i wouldnt put glycerin to al fakher ... you will get strong headaches, if you do this! glycerin is good for dry tobacco, but not for wet tobacco like al fakher ... dont do this! you will destroy the tobacco and maybe also your health ..

and btw: the clouds wont be bigger than with normal al fakher ... i tried many things with glycerin and also with molasses. believe me that this is a bad idea ...
to get bigger clouds of smoke, try to use more tobacco, less foil or more coals, to get more heat!

For one bowl, and that's if the shisha is drier than normal, the suggested amount is 1/4 tspn. Unless you have really old Al Fakher I don't know that you would need to add anything. And be careful not to add to much since it can add a bad flavor to your smoke. Your best mixing it with an equal amount of honey.

yeah, one tablespoon of glycerin and molasses are all that is needed to make shisha from tobacco, a quarter to half teaspoon teaspoon should be plenty for thicker smoke though. For a single bowl, just a couple drops. As Kwikwi said, mix with honey or molasses, pure glycerin can wash out a flavor by itself.

Make sure you buy vegetable glycerin, the other kinds can make you very sick.

Unless the AF is very old (say 3+ years) or you left it open for a few days I'd be hard pressed to imagine why you'd want to add glycerin. You should keep in mind that while glycerin does produce more smoke it is a simple sugar and will effect the taste and texture of the smoke. If you add too much it will wreck the taste. Besides, smoking should be about taste and texture rather then making massive clouds.
