Fresh water every time and never allow it to boil other than very briefly.

Water from different areas/bottles influences taste a great deal.

Teapot is the only way... just learn how much water and brewing time to use for your particular taste.


Much the same 'mechanics' as coffee really.....

It is for the folding forum... but zyzzyxs' 'What are you listening to now' holds the record for SPCR.

Hi Mike, it should be safe, the core/client does regular check points so little/less work is lost in the case of an unexpected termination.

When it restarts it should start from the last check point.
