    You can go to their website www.GQFMFG.com and print the manual. I would follow the instructions on the first hatch, and then make any adjustments needed for your situations. Everyone seems to have slightly different conditions and results.

    The only tip I have is to use a straw and large syringe to fill the water when you are in lockdown.....
