Since you've done it, do you want to write an "adequate" set of instructions to go in my FAQ? Even if it's just a set of simple requirements (min/max electrode voltage, current limits, suitable electrode metals, stirring, etc) rather than instructions, that'd be a good start that a competent hacker could build something from.
