When i tried to this past weekend with a silex brewer i found in the garage i removed the metal coil and chain from the glass rod. Because i didnt want old metal in my coffee. Whats the proper flame for vacuum brewing. What is that chain and coil for. On my other pot i took the chain and coil off and the glass rod worked fine i love vacuum brewing but it seems so tricky whats the story on one pot i melted the rubber gasket because the flame was too high can you help.
