  1. Hey, no more report user button? Also can someone please either increase my message storage or erase everything in my current one? It will take be hours to erase enough to message again. :)

  2. Traditional Flavoring

    Dont let it get too dry. Too dry means no good smoke. Unless you burn the tobacco itself, which sucks. Al Fakher and Starbuzz still make plenty of candy flavouring but I dont know if you can get it in Germany. Have you ever had Nakhla in the Can or Glass jar? The difference between that and what comes in the cartons is astounding
  3. cool. i need a new hose.
  4. Traditional Flavoring

    Well, let it mellow few days. I'm told that helps meld all the flavours as opposed to making it and smoking it immediately. I am NOT an anise fan. Peach has always been my go to flavour, with the OG Tangiers K-Peach being what i smoked exclusively for many years. Let me know how it turns out.
  5. Traditional Flavoring

    From what I understand Nakhla Double Apple is red apple, Green apple. and rose. I know folks in German often get the lower glycerin version that your purity laws allow and simply add additional glycerin to get something more like we get here in the states. Search the DIY section for people's attempts at making their own. There are some tricks that are not immediately apparent.
  6. Hi. Im new to the forum and you appeared to be the go to guy regarding my query. Im due to start a job in a new shisha place. The place still needs to be set up. All I wanted to know was, could you help me regarding how to seperate the hose pipes for different flavours. I know I need to split them so that the hose pipe wont have old, strong flavours lingering in them when used at a later date. My query is, can I use a hose with multiple flavours. Such as can a grape hose be re used for another flavour such as purple velvet etc. Otherwise I will have to use a large number of hoses for each flavour. Sorry for this being long winded. I just really need this job and dont wanna mess up. Hope you can help. Thanking you in advance.

  7. Owning a hookah lounge

    If you read the So You want to open a hookah lounge post and still want to do it, feel free to ask plenty of questions. I'll be happy to answer them as I may be the only member left that has ever actually owned a hookah lounger. :)
  8. I must agree. Also keep in mind that if you are doing everything the way you always have and suddenly your coals are acting strangely it could be your coals. Counterfeit CoCo's are a big business. Just throwing that out there as well but I would definitely say your heat is too high.
  9. commerical dry racks?

    When I had my lounge, I used QT's. Very compact. I had a Plate/glass rack for a commercial dishwasher for the bases and I stuck the stems through the wires of the shelf over the sink. If you are using bigger hookahs I would say a line of PVC pieces set upright to stick in the bases to let them drain and dry and perhaps the wire shelving trick for the stems. Most lounges I know with bigger hookahs just wash em and put em back together again.
  10. Update me

    I don't know about anyone else but i still smoke exclusively Tangiers. Though I did get to try some of the KM peach that was damn tasty, review this week. Eric still lives, Tangiers has gotten to the point where he has real managers and customer service people running the day to day stuff. Havent spoken to him in a while. May have to call. Anyways, welcome back man.
  11. we can do photo albums on the forum from our good old days. :)
  12. Heh, I cant remember the last time I actually ordered something online.
  13. So, the Phunnel bowl in all its various ripped off versions are designed with the central tower to be slightly lower that the edge of the bowl to allow for heat distribution. So in this case, you should fill the bowl to the top of the bowl, while leaving the top of the tower exposed. As for your heat. That depends on the tobacco, your smoking style, and other personal preferences.
  14. I cracked an irrelplacable base by using brita filtered water out of the fridge...Now I stick to plain tap.
  15. Electric Heated Bowl?

    40 bucks huh? I look forward to your review.
