Making Coffee In a Percolator

I just got a Farberware coffee percolator. It uses 3 tablespoons of coffee grounds per 6oz coffee cup. Once the water starts to bubble, how long do I have to let it percolate? Then do I take it off the flame and let it rest? Please be specific, as I have never had a percolator before. Many thanks.

Once the coffee begins to perk (bubble), let it continue for 5 minutes, then it is ready to drink. It will be very hot, so be careful. Three tablespoons for 6 oz. of water is way too much. I'd measure one tablespoon per cup and see how that turns out, then add more ground coffee next time if it was too weak. It takes a bit of experimentation until you get it right.

Wow, that's gonna be some strong, expensive coffee! Start with 1 Tbl. per cup. Percolator coffee is stronger than drip coffee because the hot water is run over the grounds more than once by bubbling up through the tub unlike a drip which only drips hot water through once.
