Through the help of many of you in the community, we have improved our braziers. There was not enough airflow for long cauldron sessions or for those living at higher altitudes. We thought we were going to have to redesign the whole brazier, but it turned out that a new ring fixed everything. These new rings have more holes and higher ridges allowing much more airflow and no alcohol smell even during very long boiled tea sessions. These will come standard with all our braziers from now on or you can buy them separately to fit your existing brazier.
