I feel like many of the puzzles I post here are too short...

How can I make them twice as long?

The clues on the left solve straightforwardly:

STEIN Beer mug (5)
PEAR Bosc, e.g. (4)
LATTE Cappuccino alternative (5)
SHORE Coastline (5)
HOST Parasite's home (4)
BAIL Rescue, with "out" (4)
SCENE Segment of an act (5)
GRAIN Wheat or rye (5)

The clues on the right are

doubled up anagrams of the words from the left:

BILABIAL Type of consonant [4]
TATTLETALE Snitch [1]
INTESTINES Guts [3]
.
SENESCENCE Aging [6]
HORSESHOER Farrier [7]

HOTSHOTS Experts [4]
.
.
.
.
.
.
REAPPEAR Show up again [2]
ARRAIGNING Indicting [3]
.

Taking the

letter indexed by the number in square brackets yields: ATT.CH S......ER.

If we take the

letters, double them and anagram them we get ATTACH STRETCHERS, which is how you can make a puzzle twice as long!
