Smile Coldest Base Ever

Ive been trying for a long time to get the smoke to be the coldest I can.
I know that a ton of people say cold = no flavor but that's fine. I just love the cool refreshing feeling of an extremely cold mint cloud.

Anyway, this is pretty obvious and I'm sure someone has done it before.

1. Boil water

2. Pour shit-loads of salt into it slowly until it wont dissolve anymore

3. Let *** cool

4. Put in freezer and turn your freezer the coldest you can (if its adjustable)

5. Wait till frozen

6. Put base and hose in freezer (so the temperature shock wont kill it)

7. Wait 5 min then fill the hookah up with your salt water and the rest is normal.

Salt lowers the freezing point of water so when enough is dissolved in it, it allows the water to stay a liquid at extremely cold temperatures. This way you've filled up your base with 100% ice. It stays cold for an extremely long time and you can always throw a few more cubes in there to extend it.

The only downside to this is that the salt will make your mouth dry if you chief it and dont have anything to sip.

Try this with an orange cream flavor.. the first 20 hits will be so cold and creamy you'll think you're actually eating a creamsicle. ITS TEH BEST

I'm going to state my opinion on this.... One of the worst ideas ever. The salt mixture will start to destroy ANY stem you use with this. Also, the fact you are using salt and it drys you out, you are dehydrating yourself even more now. Not to mention, it may also have an effect of your lungs you aren't thinking about. If it's drying out your mouth, it may be doing the same to your lungs.

Get a Soguk or an ice hose tip if you want this effect.

I clean my hookah through and through after each use and so far I've noticed no deterioration. But makes sense that you'd want to protect your hookah.

As for the inhaling... many people actually inhale salt for extended periods daily to clear sinuses and they see no ill effects. They only thing you have to watch out for is high blood pressure.. but this is caused by ingesting salt as well and you're way more likely to eat too much salt simply by eating french fries lol

OK, yes, some people inhale salt for medical reasons. Inhaling salt does cause a rise in blood pressure, yes, and who actually checks their blood pressure? So you are taking a big risk, one that I would never take just to have a cold base. If you want that cold of a base, place your base inside a container filled with your 'super cold' mixture, that way you don't run the risk of inhaling it.

Hahahah no man, I'm not taking a big risk. The entire ocean is so filled with salt water that its not drinkable at all... and people live on boats their entire life constantly breathing air that sits near salt water and they're fine. Look it up, there is no risk other than high blood pressure.

But those other options are good ideas. I just posted to share another idea I thought of. Thanks for your concern!

Lol you guys are ridiculous. That's an interesting science project, but I wouldn't do it. I'd just throw some ice cubes in if I wanted the extra chill.

Let me see if I get this - you are filling your hookah with salty ice cubes, right ?

I've tried something similar and didn't get salt in my mouth. The salt simply won't travel down the hose.

Unless I'm missing something, the salt to your lips came from licking your salty hands :P

By the way, there are other means to lower the freezing point of water which won't kill your stem. Think anti-freeze (glycerine / propylene glycol).

Or even alcohol if you're looking for something stronger. :P

Funny thought - using glycerine instead of water in your base...

All good ideas guys!

Yeah I think it'd be really interesting to use alcohol. Maybe I'll mod a freezer to drop really low near the freezing point of alcohol -114C (-173.2F) Or... more realistically the freezing point of some 80 proof liquor .. "84 proof liquor freezes at -34.44C (-30F)"

Im not saying this is something people should do in a daily bowl haha, I just find experimenting interesting like most people.

Dude why the hell do you want frozen smoke... Cold tap water does the job for me everytime... Sometimes I throw in a couple of ice cubes (only when I'm smoking mint)

While you guys worry about supersaturating your base water with salt for a lower freezing point... I'm just going to throw my whole hookah into an ice bucket and add two trays of ice. It doesn't hurt the stem, takes all of 1 minute to do, and keeps it damned cold.

AverageJoe is right. I'd get a $5 foam ice chest from WalMart and cut a hole in it for the stem. Put ice in the chest and you have yourself once chilly hookah.

Or just do this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tP9RS5enYT0

Me and my friends have contemplated taking ice, throwing it in a blender, and adding that to the base
have a majority of it be this Slurpee but also about a third water so smoke still gets filtered, would this work in theory?

coldest base possible? simple alcohol in freezer as base water. keep that on ice too. but i wouldnt reccomend it unless you only smoke hookah for the cool thick smoke rather than flavor
