Hi everyone, 

I can sure use some tips/techniques on using the Cona glass rod with the
Yama vacuum pot.  A Cona rod arrived with my order of greens this week, and
I tried the rod for the first time this morning.

I set my coffee grinder to very coarse in an attempt to not have it stall.  

My first attempt didn't work.  It stalled pretty early on.  Stirring didn't
work.  Ultimately, I put it back on the burner to equalize pressure enough
so I could get the glass rod loose.  What a mess.

I recall it takes the proper technique to use the rod with the vac pot.  Are
any of you having success?  Can you share your tips?
