    I'm smoking some Britts Balkan out of a MM and its good up until I get near the bottom of the bowl where it get bitter.
    This is a MM I only use for this blend.
    Its well broken in and I have ran a pipe cleaner thru it and changed the filter.
    Any suggestions for me?

    Some blends simply get bitter towards the end of the bowl. Burley blends are generally accepted as being the worst in this regard but I have found heavily cased blends that also have loads of propylene glycol in them are the worst.

    There is no cure. If things start getting bitter I would change blends. If the blend was enjoyable in other respects and I really liked it anyway, I would simply dump it when it started getting bitter.

    All of this is likely not what you wanted to hear but old pharts like me don't always sugar coat advice.:old:

    I agree with Arkie. Smoke it while it's good. Tip it when it turns bad.
