Did some searching and haven't really found an answer so I'm looking to find out if anyone has a solution to my specific prob.
I got my AGA a few days ago and have been trying to get it set up right. I have tried using 500 and 400 mesh. I've wrapped it tight and loose. Got the wick in there snug and loose as well. I don't have a torch and they haven't built any walmarts in Afgahnistan yet so a bic lighter will have to do. So my issue is that i get the wick and coil setup and glowing nice. Itheats from the middle out and glows nice and even all the way up to 12watts. Coil is wrapped 3/4 and comes out real consistently to 1.8 to 2 ohms and holds steady unless the positive nut comes loose. I've even gone so far as to glow it, shake the livin mess out of itthen glow Iit again with very consistent results. Then I put fluid in, prime it up and go to try it out and get burnt juice. Then I tip the setup glow the coils, take care of the hot spots that showed up and repeat only to get burnt juice again. Now I'm at a point to where I'm getting good flavor and vapor but still have a mild burnt taste. I've ramped the wattage up from 7 to 10 and the flavor and vapor increases with no real inceease in the burnt taste. Is this something I just need to let work out on it's own or do I still have a problem I need to work out?
Edit: I was using 70% vg yesterday and added in some 50/50mtoday to thin it out. But yesterday and today I've been able to tip and burn to cutoff with no glow. If I immediately hit it again it'll glow though. Give it a few seconds to wick back up and no glow.
