Default Help: shisha that is too moist

I'm towards the end of my container shisha and i didn't mix the tobacco well enough when i first was smoking it so the remaining shisha is VERY moist.

The problem is that it's not letting much air through and giving me a lot of resistance. I'm being EXTRA EXTRA careful not to pack it hard, i'm breaking it up really fine and trying not to pack it much at all and it's still a struggle.

I'm hesitant to rinse out some of the excess juices because i feel it robs the shisha of it's potential flavor. I know it's not the rig (32" KM with large diameter KM hose and egyptian clay bowl) cause i've never had this problem.

If squeezing the juice out is the only resort then i'll do it, but i wanted to ask some hp.com members before doing that.

if you don't want to get a phunnel bowl you can fold up a heavy papertowel a few times, put the shisha in it and squeeze out the some excess "juice"

You could also blend it with a drier shisha to balance it out and not waste all that tasty 'juice'!

I'm definitely interested in getting a phunnel... but can't find the how to spot to make it work properly (don't want to create a new thread cause i know there are a ton already... somewhere...)

But for the time being, until i get a phunnel, i'll use the paper towel idea ((i only have new boxes of shisha, all very moist... otherwise i'd mix it))
