Less heat when over packing! <--very important!

So, I made the (in)famous how to over pack Nakhla video. For what it's worth, I've given up on the technique. It works just fine but I find it's not really worth it (to me) in the long run. I've gone back to loose packing in a wide shallow egyptian bowl and have dedicated a hose to Nakhla DA. I'm finding that a nice sweet apple taste is becoming more prominent as time goes by.
See me on YouTube!
