Pourable microfoam - on my third try!

Post by RonMJ » Sat Mar 15, 2014 12:16 pm

After reading a lot on this forum, my first two attempts flopped, but I nailed it the third time! 6oz of fat free milk, 12 oz flat walled pitcher, tip in the center (why is the arm so damn short anyway?) a bit below the surface. Expand about 40-50%, then submerge the tip about 1 1/2", move the tip toward the side and tilt the pitcher so the steam hits the side of the pitcher and goes down, swirling the milk down, across the bottom and then up the other side. Shut the steam when the thermometer gets close to 140, temp settled in a bit over 150. Every drop was microfoam. No milk under the foam. So far loving my new Dream T. And I only got it last night.

Edit: the difference on the third try was moving the wand to the side and tilting the pitcher. The prior two attempts was just moving the tip straight down into the milk.
