Default If Shisha gets dry, can it get revived?

Ok, so I took all the shisha out of the fridge last night and tried another bowl tonight, definetly worked better (was able to finish the bowl). I had some good flavor at the beginning but only for a couple of draws on the hose. I used three pieces of the exotica coals and one piece of the heavy duty foil. I used a large bowl and sprinkled the shisha in loosely, not to loose but not packed to tightly. At the end of the session (about 30-45 minutes) I got a real harsh draw from the pipe, so I lifted the foil and all the shisha was finished. So, is there anyway to revive the shisha once it starts to dry out? It still has some moisture, but I am thinking the fridge must have taken a lot out of the shisha.

Yes. Use a simple mix of glycerin and honey. You can buy vegetable glycerin at a health or whole foods store. And use pure unflavored honey(ie no berry or orange etc etc). About 1/4 teaspoon per standard bowl works well. A little more if it's really dry.

I agree with the post above. Glycerin never lets me down when I wanna revive old shisha. I always use honey to add on a sweeter taste

Yep Kwikwi covered the bases. If the shisha I have is dry I weigh out 50 G and add 1/4 tsp. of honey and 1/4 of vegetable glycerine and mix it up good.

keep in mind folks, that honey turns to stone when you heat it. So expect to have a hockey puck in your bowl when your done! But yes, this is how it's done.

It is normal for tobacco to dry out after you been smoking it for a while...? Take some coal off if it get really harsh.
