Were both up early! In response to your questions...
Yes, they do. *Pre 2009 models had difficulty doing so, however there have been several modifications made that enable the HG to roast the rated batch sizes comfortably.Originally Posted by 59776D737F6C1E0 link=1245553678/101#101 date=1284750746
The choice is really yours. You can roast with a full range of airflow in the same way as the Diedrich. *The rear of the drum on the HG is perforated and in my experience, the HG has a quicker response time than the Diedrich (I used to roast with one) both to gas and airflow changes.Originally Posted by 59776D737F6C1E0 link=1245553678/101#101 date=1284750746
We do recommend the addition of a low pressure gas gauge - without one you are really flying blind. *These can be fitted at any stage, and when installed while setting up the roaster, they are provided at cost price.Originally Posted by 59776D737F6C1E0 link=1245553678/101#101 date=1284750746
