To those who have experience in making CS themselves I want to ask if it's normal that the silver electrodes discard a fine mist with a golden-brownish color? Within the first seconds the mist began in my self-distilled water and now, after 15 minutes and after cleaning the electrodes and putting them in again I notice the water turning dark-brown-blackish color. Is this okay? I don't trust it. Could the voltage be too high? The water is distilled and at hot temperature with a drop of honey added. The silver also stains the sides of the glass where it touches it a bit of brown-blackish kind of residue or something.
