    Hi @Skoozle thanks for taking out your time. The downstem is stuck inside the Hookah base. Have a look!

    That's great that you found what you were looking for. Pure raw tobacco leaves as in just loose leaf tobacco? Or is that a specific brand? If you want to experiment, you could try adding some glycerin to the tobacco leaves to get a better burn or smoke. There seems to be some good information in the How-To Workshop section for DIY hookah tobacco. If you try anything else, let us know how it goes.

    I'm not 100% sure what the problem is. Is only the lower part of the stem (the screw off down stem) completely inside the vase? If that's the case, I would try to bend a sturdy wire into a hook to try to pull it loose. If the hub is in the opening of the base as it should be, I would try gentle persuasion trying to twist and pull it out. Make sure it's not threaded in. Alternating cold and hot water could give you the thermal expansion you need to loosen the stuck threads but it can also give you the thermal expansion you need to break your glass base. Use that trick at your own risk after everything else has failed and don't go too extreme until you are ready to break the base anyway. If I have misunderstood your issue, please explain more or post a picture or link to a picture. (I'm not sure if those are currently allowed on the forum) Good luck!

    I saw your other post about traditional tobacco, so I'll kind of respond to both posts here. Nakhla Zaghloul is going to be an unflavored traditional hookah tobacco. there is also zaghloul lite which will have less nicotine. Nakhla Double Apple is oddly enough not apple flavored. It taste like anise or black licorice. This will also be a very traditional flavor as I believe this was the first flavored hookah tobacco introduced. If you want to avoid all fruit flavors, you could consider mint, cinnamon, coffee or chocolate flavors. Afzal has several Paan flavors as well. There are so many flavors for hookah it's impossible to try them all and everyone has different tastes which makes recommendations difficult. What would be your ideal flavor if you had a magic wand?

    Hey there! Just adding anything but glycerin wouldn't make it cloudy. The glycerin does. Of course nowerdays there is an option for pg too but what seems more intersting right now; glycerin is actually some kind of alcohol not active for a human being but it is a kind of alcohol. And this alcohol is like I just read a product which comes after adding sulfites to the alcohol generation. So if there was honey and a realy bit of water mixed to the tobacco and sulfites in which might have come out of a sugarcane melasses which we know now as blackstrap they might have just had glycerin by natural in. Maybe just ad glycerin to your leaf by a 1:2 ratio (tobacco:glycerin). By myself I use a 1:2.25 ratio and glycerin was mixed with honey with a 1(honey) to 2(glycerin) ratio and a few drops of water which i just drip in from my hand. Don't let confuse yourself from the strange ratios that's just the results of the tests I made by myself. If you would like to get it to glycerin by nature I think you need to store it quiete warm but I never tried . If you would like to test this glycerin honey thing - give it a month because glycerin needs time to eat the honey but it does.. somehow xD really sweet after a month. And... you know tobacco raw leaf is a very quality product with many good resin and if you wash it you make a quality product quiete worth- and tasteless just let it be the pure power of tobacco and get yourself a leaf in that strength you like. No wash. ;D Greetings from germany man dominik

    Let's stay and talk about things - it is active than. Just to inform you, in germany there is also not one active board. It may seems a bit like there are active but it's an up and down of three or four offending idiots. So if we stay and show that we're on in times we might get an community back. World wide hookah smokers will see this THIS THIS is the only board with members. I will stay and talk about this and that because I want an community. Maybe you too? And if it's not the normal things to offend members I realy like to stay as an active member. Maybe you too? Greetings

      I honestly laughed out loud at the bag of roe.  I'm glad my office mate hasen't made it in yet or I would have had to explain the whole thing to him.   I'm happy to hear that it worked out for you.  Was it the thick black gasket that made it fit?  That's what I use for my Fancy Hoses with the Mya.   It was really no big deal.  The hose was packed away in a box not being used so I'm not going to miss it at all.   Thank you for the kind words, Everyone.
