Really appreciate all of the testing and the info. 11 isn't too bad. I knew the chamber appeared quite large but that is a pretty impressive size. I could probably handle turning it on a bit earlier, especially with the load size bonus. I probably misspoke earlier...I would just have to plan on using it more so. But using the butane while waiting to heat up is a great idea. I know I sound impatient as hell...and you are probably right haha I should just get over the fear of something falling on top of the core and catching fire and leave it on a majority of the time. Does the alpha stem go on the inside or outside of the alpha core?
