Default Help new to hookah

Hey guys well i need some help. I recently bought a mini hookah its probaby 16" not sure but more or less, well i've noticed that the smoke gets kinda harsh especially when practicing blowing o's. I've smoke at hookah lounges before but it is never feels like this when i set mine up at home. I can try blowing three or four then it gets uncomfortable and just end up blowing the remaining smoke in my mouth. I use instant light coals and i always add ice to the vase. Am i doing something wrong? Thanks for the help!

I'm no expert but from what I've found, using a double layer of foil really helps.

It sounds like your coals are too hot and are burning the shisha - Try clearing the chamber (blow through the hookah) and taking off one of the coals.

also poking a few holes rather than tons, like i used to and not using more than 2 coals works wonders. also watch sambooka's vid on how to set up your hookah, a masterpiece it is, i tell you

Yep sounds like a heat management problem...try using a double layer of foil, and if that fails, less charcoal my friend
