At 11pm last night, the most recent charge had not melted, so I just left it overnight.

This AM at 8:30, the glass had melted down flat again - to less than 3/4 of the pot. I did another charge, and will let that melt.

Once I'm over 3/4 of the pot "melted flat", I'm going to turn it up to 2250 for cooking. Probably around noon, unless another charge is required.

I see no need to fight for "a totally full" crucible on this first charge. Anything over 3/4 full will give me plenty of glass for this first run of the system.

Now all I need is a gas "bar-b-que" fitting installed in the house to use instead of those 20lb propane bottles, and I'd be set!
