Default Waldmeister

I don't know if you guys have tried this stuff but it's a sweet syrup flavoured with Linden from Germany used in kid drinks and while it's great on it's own it's even better with your moassel. What I do is put about 120-160 grams of the stuff in with the ice water in the base and mix it up. It adds a great floral taste with some sweetness to what ever you're smoking provided it's not an extremely strong flavour. Do note that it will make the water in base green but that doesn't bother me.

You can also use it in place of honey/molasses when making your own moassel or when wetting something is overly dry like Zaghloul, Salloum Plain or Desi Merli. Mixing it with Desi Merli plain is amazingly good and so easy I hope you guys give it a try.

Sounds pretty cool...the green color of the water would be cool with my green base.

Made a bit of mistake here in that Waldmeister is made with Woodruff rather then Linden. Americans can get it here: http://www.germandeli.com/rawawsy50.html and the price is cheap which is nice. Also, this stuff is great over ice and mixed with milk. Lots of people use this various German biers as well. Lastly, I know that a lot of people have used fennel syrup in the same way in both drinks and moassel so that is worth looking into as well.

While this stuff is the real deal, people will be able to find many flavored syrups used in a drink that persians call "Sherbat". Oddly enough, the most prevalent brand is Zer Gut (which is phoentically spelled German, Sehr Gut meaning "very good"). They have many syrups floating around, but I never thought of mixing it and making my own moassel. Thanks for the inspiration Hajo!

I thought that was what that meant. This is a French Engineering company with a German name I don't know any Germans I could ask. Egyptians, Saudis, Ethiopians, Americans, French people, one Australian guy but no Germans. OH well.

I'm really glad to see that this subject took off. Not sure about Waldmeister being English as my bottle says it's made Germany and all the writing is German. Anyway, it does use the woodruff herb which I cook and make ales with but yeah, that is what gives it the flavour.

I bought some fennel syrup from a German mail order place and I look forward to making some moassel with it.

It's great over milk and ice as a drink or on ice cream.

Here in Israel with Thank G-D so much fruit growing, a number of syrups were created with the fruit and corn syrups mixed. I bought a mango flavour last week to mix in the water and I tried it on shisha. Too much gets it drippy and will bake the shisha though.

I've never thought of fruit syrups from Israel, actually I can't think of any Israeli product I've seen on the market but it's interesting to hear about. When you use syrups with maossel you need to use it sparingly and only with dry stuff like exported Zaghloul or Desi Merli. I would guess that mixed in with normal stuff it would be awful. Also, syrups mixes with maossel shouldn't have any corn content.
