Default Quest to make my own Shisha...

Well me and my brother are kinda tired of some of the brands out there not tasting the way they are supposed to taste like, so we are going to try to make our own.

Basics: Long leaf whole Virginia tobacco. It is readily available to us since we own tobacco stores and we deal with things like this. We are also going to try Asfahana High Quality Tombac. This is basically a dry leaf that the old timers prepare and smoke.

for flavoring, we will try several different things, a few in particular. Not giving this info out because of obvious reasons, but if anyone is interested PM me.

Glycerin will also be used at the right ratios.

We will start making these within a couple of weeks. Anyone interested in testing for us, PM me. We will test first ourselves. And then we will let it loose on you guys lol

Lol @ hookahpimp and his moms

Heres some advice..I used glycerine and i found it way to thin so i had to add honey. Try to see if you can find sugar cane syrup or somthing thick with out a taste. I tried Molassas but ah man the smell just got to me and no way in hell i was gonna smoke it.... and have fun.

Well there goes my plan to rule the world with my own special version of Hookah Pro Shisha! To much competition out there! Guess I'll just stick with the Hookah Pro Forum & Chat

Bilal, don't forget to give your mom my address, I can't wait to try her homemade shisha! I would particularly like to try the banana nut bread and the curry chicken salad flavors ... thxs! hehe
(now everyone is going to want to order those on your site ... lol ... "When is PYH gonna be selling his Mom's shisha!?")

Testing tongiht on first batch

First batch is watermelon, and we will be playing with ratios. Some batches will use glycerin, some molasses, and some both...along with the flavoring. Tobacco will be consistent for all 3 as well as the setup. Im having 3 Syrians set-up, all single hose, and all 29". All bowls will be typcial egyptian and hold about 25-30g. I'm going to try my best to get the best combination and what will work the best for sampling to you guys. More to come soon..
