Nice job Mike!  I have found (thanks to you at the Espresso Bash) that
pitcher size really helps in the steaming process.  I now have 4 different
sizes to use depending on the type of drink I am making or the number of
drinks.  One size doesn't do it all.

Nice one Mike,  I've had a little trouble regulating my valve to get =
just a small amount, but will work on it some more because that looks =
like a good technique.   Now were all going to be installing secondary =
needle valves at the top of our wands.

Thanks. Made Debi an after work macchiato this evening. Did much better =
on
the foam almost filling the little 3oz SS at the end of stretch & swirl!
Actually, a tad over stretched it that time. Was a bit stiff but not all =
the
way to cotton dry stiff. It'll definitely take a bit of practice =
"playing
the steam valve" as well as tip depth etc. to get consistent results
steaming 1oz at a time! But hey, it's way cool to be able to do it;-)

Can you pour a rosetta yet (assuming you bother with art)?  I've found
pouring art with a tiny (3oz too) pitcher and macchiattos to be much
easier than with my normal 20oz pitcher.  In fact, I find it easier to
pour them with macchiattos than with cappuccinos.  Hard to say why...

Only steamed 1oz in 3oz SS twice so far and once too thin once too thick for
art. Cappuccino wise I use 12oz pithcer steaming for a single, find get
better micro-foam sizing pitcher to amount of milk steamed. Regardless,
really just getting started practicing pour art, still more often than not
poor art:-) But that's ok, it'll come AND if the milk properly steamed
doesn't detract from the taste! Have served Debi some cappuccinos with very
nice hearts lately, they be appropriate.
