I would follow the directions on the bag.  Figure it this way:  If people 
follow the cooking directions on packages, and they get ill or something, 
the people of today's society will jump at the opportunity to sue the 
manufacturer.  So, with that in mind, the manufacturers are going to be darn 
sure that their directions will not result in a law suit.  It's a sorry 
affair when someone gets burned by not using common sense when microwaving a 
meat pie on high for 7 minutes or so, and then cutting into it immediately 
after taking it out of the oven, and then sues the manufacturer for not 
warning them that the contents may be hot.  The dumbing down of America, 
also known as C Y A.  They put the stupid warning on the container to 
prevent the law suits by dumb people.  So, especially since this is your 
first attempt, I would follow those directions on the bag to! the! letter! 
to insure good results.
Be positive!  When it comes to being defeated, if you think you're finished, 
you! really! are! finished!
