    Speaking of campstoves ("Dad! Stop! I already know this!"), and I know this sounds alarmist, but you really shouldn't be smoking a pipe when you're Everclear- or isopropanol-ing a pipe. It is wise to recap the bottle the instant you've poured or eyedropped or pipecleaner-dipped or whatever it is you're doing. A spill and a spark can be catastrophic in about 1/2 a second with these juices. Also extra bad to have the stuff open with kids or pets around; they are experts at knocking things over. Yo, dog.
    I didn't even look at the alcohol content at the store. I thought they were all the same so just grabbed the cheapest one!

    I have used whiskey many times and have not noticed any residual flavor.

    They would be fine, but Everclear has over twice
    the alcohol and the alcohol is what does the job.

    I use everclear so I don't know about the flavoring personally, but dub said that rum or whiskey would leave behind a bit of flavor, but he enjoys that flavor. If you like the whiskey flavors, give it a try.

    If you have BevMo in the Bay Area, try them. They carry the 151 proof Everclear. For the good stuff, the 190 proof Everclear, I got mine in Oregon.

    Re: Ask a Pipe Guy

    I use either everclear or bacardi 151.
    the 151 leaves a very very slight rum residual in the pipe. But it is very faint!

    Re: Ask a Pipe Guy

    In my opinion it just stuck around for a bowl or two.

    I recently switched to Vodka because it has less of an after taste.....if any at all.

    Question Re: Ask a Pipe Guy

    Gentlemen, my problem is that while having a bowl, I (almost) drool like a baby eating his first ever biscuit... 2 or 3 puffs and my mouth is full of saliva... What could be the reasons and how to overcome this problem??

    If this question has been asked, I apologize for not finding it.
    If I am careful is it OK to widen the airway in the stem and shank with a drill bit? I really like the open draws on my cobs and have a few briars that just don't smoke that well.

    No, at least in my opinion. Some classify them as english/aromatics, but when I think of aromatics, the "leathery and buttery" taste of latakia falls into the english category, therefore in my opinion, all of the Frog Mortons are english based blends, although with differing characteristics. One (OTB) has a perique base, another uses Syrian tobacco, etc.

    The salivation is a response to the nicotine. 2 ways to deal with it.

    1. Spit it out, and develop a habit of pipe smoking and spitting.

    2. Swallow it. I've found that if you, heh, swallow as opposed to spit, over time you will salivate much less.

    I've had 2 pipes "opened up", but these were expensive pipes that I didn't want to damage, so had them sent out. You can certainly do it yourself, but it is recommended to do it in small increments until the desired diameter is reached, and do not use a drill. Put the drill bit into a hand chuck and do it by hand. The walls of stems and pipes are sometimes very thin, and the risk of breaking through a wall is very real.

    Hope this all helps you!
