fill the base to where the water is about 1/4-1/2inch above the bottom of the stem. 2 full coals or 1 coal broken into 2? maybe to much heat

Dont worry about the size of your rig, I have a mya QT (what is that 12 inches? ) and I get clouds off of it, it's either your coal management or over or under packing.

two of them shouldn't be too hot. A9, from what i remember, does not have a harsh feeling in the throat. Have you cleaned the rig thoroughly? that could be it.
