Hatching Brine Shrimp

Hey guys, I am getting more and more exited for my angelfish spawn ( due to lay in about 2 weeks) and I have been looking around for the best way to hatch Brine Shrimp.

Here's what I have:
Brine Shrimp eggs
enough salt for 5 gallons
Bubbler
2 liter bottles with caps that have airbrushing coming out of the ( from co2)

Questions:
Is there a certain temperature they need to be hatched at?
When is there yolk sack at its most nutritious?
Is a certain amount of lighting required?
How salty should the wager BE?
Would it be worth it to set up a 10 gallon to dump my extra water out into an grow the extra shrimp into adults?

I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this, it didn't seem to fit anywhere else!

Thanks ,

Bubbles0oO
