01. Tear the paper and card and place in a bucket of water to soak the paper thoroughly.
· This may take a couple of hours dependant on type or it could be left overnight.
02. Create a first layer comprising several sheets of wet paper which will help
to keep the briquette together before placing any other shredded material
in the middle. Fill the available space before folding over any overhanging
paper to encapsulate any loose material.
03. Place the top screen on top as shown in and squeeze out as much water as possible, using the handles to push firmly down on the wet material. If the material packs down too far, add more material to fill the space and repeat.
04. Turn the unit over and push out the briquette.
05. Leave the briquette to dry out completely.
· The warmer & dryer the location, the more effective the drying process. A warm greenhouse is ideal but any dry room or shed is suitable. They can also be left on a dry pavement to dry out initially, especially on hot days.
· Briquettes should be made up during the summer months and left to dry out ready for winter. They should ideally be stacked with an airspace between.
· The briquettes should be made burn with a minimum of ash (depending upon content & composition). They should not require firelighters or toxic chemicals to light.
