  1. I'm still not sure about the stem, having just finished smoking this whole vanilla bowl, I really think something's not right with my setup, I'm going to give it another deep clean now and I'll see how it comes out with the next flavor
  2. Hi all, haven't been here in over a year (god damn...) After some curveballs that life threw at me I hadn't used my hookah in over a year, completely disregarded it, that was until the other day when I had a massive craving and stopped in at a brand new lounge which just opened up for my first hookah in ages. If anyone remembers my old posts, hookah tobacco over here in Australia is RIDICULOUSLY priced (australian sin taxes have tobacco on a 1000% excise!) and flavors were limited to AF grape & mint and Nakhla double apple. This new lounge however now stocks several hookahs for purchase and a variety of flavors at very reasonable prices, and I walked out with the taste of guava and watermelon on my lips and a tub of AF vanilla for my poor neglected 22" MYA which had sat in it's case for too long. So I went to fire it all up again the other day, tangiers mini phunnel with some AF grape and coconaras, and well, it tasted absolutely weird... I thought maybe it just needed a thorough clean so i did the whole baking soda and vinegar clean, scrubbed it in hot water and dried it out. Tried it again today with a double apple and vanilla combo in my mini phunnel and while I could taste the aniseed, something was still wrong.... So I cleaned the hookah quickly and made up a bowl of straight vanilla, and still it tasted like ass... I couldn't figure out what was wrong.... Then I remembered I had an old hose from my first Chinese hookah when I started smoking, grabbed it, gave it a quick clean with compressed air, stuck it in the other hose hole and bingo, I can taste the vanilla properly now! I'm currently sitting here with two hoses, my MYA standard hose which tastes like crap, and my old hose which tastes like vanilla with a slight ass taste in the background... Now I remember that just before I packed up my hookah, the last time I used it my friend packed the bowl with some very wet AF grape, and the juices dripped all the way down the stem, in to the base and also the hose inlets, I gave it a good clean with vinegar and baking soda that day but the last time I used it I remember it tasting like ass again. My question is, is my setup tainted? I know now that my hoses are most definitely no good, but could my stem be possibly tainted too...? Sorry for the long post boys and girls much love and happy smoking, I await some advice! Thanks!

I've smoked AF the whole time (only thing i can get my hands on besides herbal) and it's just not working for the huge smoke. I was getting better smoke with a normal phunnel method, or even a standard mya bowl, i dunno why it just won't work for me... any suggestions? [/quote] I have been trying this method with mizo and reg. nakhla and it works really well. On a bowl, the first session usually get me regular clouds but it's only when I am using a necro bowl that I get the big clouds. I guess that in my case the solid first layer that the first session creates then works as a better heat transmitter. I don't have any real clue though [/quote] Got the chance to try this with Nak Double Apple tonight, same story as before, good flavour but no massive clouds I'm using a small phunnel (i broke my alien mini yesterday :'( ) with three coco's and tightly packed tobacco. just isn't getting the smoke.....

[quote name='ilikemyusername' date='06 July 2010 - 09:17 AM' timestamp='1278370069' post='474053'] Call me crazy but for the last year or so I've just been using my large mya bowl with a windcover and a single coco. I get great flavor and smoke while conserving coals and money. you guys have fun with this method but me, I'm back to basics. [/quote] When i first started, i was using a small egyptian bowl (max 20g of shisha) and a single quicklight and it was the best clouds i have ever had to date.
  5. Cleaning A Gross Stem

    soaked my mya in straight vinegar for about an hour, then an hour in hot water, then dried it all. came out like brand new.
  6. sorry, 60-40. Can't figure out how to edit my posts on these forums...
  7. Al Fakher Lemon 60% mix with Al-Fakher Mint. Tried it the other night and it blew my mind...
  8. ah why not. Pictures from this saturday night, one of the biggest nightclubs in Australia "HQ".

  9. Fake Al Fakher?

    I've been wondering about fake AF for a while now too. I was talking to my local tobacconist a while back and when i asked "is this all you have?" in regards to his 3-brand, 3-flavor selection of shisha he started ranting and raving about how hard it was to find shisha in Australia and that if i was to go and buy it myself from anywhere else i was very likely to be sold fake AF shisha in a re-sealed container... Anyone ever heard of this happening? not just in Aus but anywhere?
  10. [quote name='INCUBUSRATM' date='20 June 2010 - 06:34 PM' timestamp='1277021094' post='472207'] $95? I'd find a new hobby... [/quote] Aussie "Sin taxes" aka. bullshit. Big thanks to Venger, got some AF in the mail from him today! Gonna be doing that from now on, wayyyy cheaper (3 week delivery time isn't perfect, but hey, beggars can't be choosers)
  11. So i bought a 250g tub of AF today ($95... fml) and it came in a plastic tub. Can i store the tobacco in that tub directly (e.g. not in the packet, just dump the shisha straight in the tub i got it in) or should i store it in something else?
  12. mini and small phunnels have arrived... i'm never using a standard bowl again!!! :D IN LOVE!

  13. Favourite Hookah Pastime

    Lying on my waterbed with the hookah on the floor next to it. Surfing the net/using my laptop for "studying". Playing some guitar or listening to music, both really, really loud! (cos thats the way i like it! lol) Sitting on big armchairs/lounges when smoking with friends.
  14. MYA has arrived, absolutely stoked right now!!! [IMG]http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l294/helli_01/01062010482.jpg[/IMG] Mini phunnel, small phunnel, vortex and more shisha coming next week too
  15. [quote name='F16WarBird' date='01 June 2010 - 03:12 PM' timestamp='1275367326' post='470112'] As a fellow n00b, I recommend going with a smaller bowl until your build up your tolerances to CO & nicotine. [/quote] I'm a smoker too, nicotine tolerance is nice and high lol Ordered a HJ mini funnel and a small tangiers too, can't wait, my new MYA just arrived today too
