Default Little experiment of mine

Well I have a ton of old ( i wouldn't do this with fresh ) nakhla laying around. So I grabbed a ziplock bag of it and decided to make my own shisha.

1. I took about 70 grams to start off small and put my faucet on as hot as possible and put on some rubber gloves.

2. I then proceeded to wash the tobacco so i can get all the old ingredients and flavor out..the way I did that was wash it till the water that came out of the shisha was damn near clear.

3. I let it air dry for a little bit, then I took this irish cream syrup i had and put 3 ounces of it into a ziplock bag, threw in the shisha and put half an oz of honey ( to thicken it )

4. Now I have the shisha marinating in my freezer ( not for long just so the flavor can infuse a little better )

5. Then I will test it out and let you guys know.

I tried this exact thing with old nakhla and it was catastrophic fail. The consistency seemed right, looked just like regular shisha, but it tasted awful. I used molasses, honey, and glycerine. All bought from a grocery store, that's probably why. Hopefully you'll have better luck, let us know how it goes :P

Wow Speel,

Thats really creative! I thought we did some creative stuff with shisha, you have surpassed all expectations, lol.

throw up some pictures when you do your first smoke session, i'd love to see how it turned out.

The consistency is a little watery .. I might put it on a plate and let it air dry for a little while.

Dunk I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw the pic and before I read your post, too funny. I'm sure he'll get some flavor though, getting it completely flavorless would be too challenging

If it doesn't turn out for some reason, you may want to add some glycerin to make it burn more evenly.

That sucks. Making homemade shisha is really, really hard. I've tried it a few times and i either got no smoke, or got a little smoke and had crappy taste. I've done a bit of searching and have never heard a real success story of anyone making homemade shisha, nevertheless a recipe or something of the sorts for it. It's definitely not easy.
