Thanks for the phone visit. I went back to the machine and decided that there just didnt seem to be enough steam coming out. I used a thick needle and poked around in the steam nozzle and a piece of wood (like a broken toothpick) came out with the next blast of steam. Now plenty of steam is coming out for at least 20 seconds. Why does the sound of the steam in the milk change as the time goes on? It starts out at a high whine and then gets lower and lower, almost like a growl. Anyway, I think there is hope for froth now, as long as I can avoid boiling the milk.
