    I have now had a full month burning my new castine stove. Just the other day I checked the chimney and it looked like the bottom of the chimney has just some dusty soot in it. Very, very small amount. About two feet from the top of the exposed chimney it looks as if there is a very thin coat of creosote glaze. Is this something that is normal?

    This is also more so going to be the case in the early Fall and late Spring with smaller fires.
