Now if it was me, I'd go ahead and do the same load as before. But instead of leaving it I'd be watching it, too see how its reacting. Without seeing whats happening, its all kinda of guess work. Drier wood can make your stove act different, as I'm finding out on my NC13. But understanding whats causing it is what your needing to be able to react too. Then when you start making changes, you can truly see how those changes effect it. But thats just how my mind works.
