Tobacco becoming liquidy after adding glycerin

Question

Hey guys. I wanna know why is my tobacco becoming liquidy after i add glycerin to it, considering that im not adding too much and my tobacco doesn't contain water.

Here is how im making my tobacco:

I add molasses to chopped and dried tobacco and cook it for a few minutes in the pan, after it cools down i add the flavouring and let it sit for a day. After that, i add the glycerin and when i check it the next day, it is liquidy rayher than sticky.

You're adding liquid to it so yes it should look watery.

You can lessen the amount but glycerin is what gives you heat resiliency and clouds. Even nakhla being a drier tobacco has glycerin in it.

That's a different method than what I do. I don't cook it in a pan but I bake it in the oven wrapped in foil. Yes it will get liquidy for a time. What I do is I leave it in an open container for a couple of days making sure I mix it every so often to ensure the tobacco absorbs as much of the liquid as possible. If after a couple of days still liquidy, then I just drain it and leave it alone for a few more days.
