Corretto roaster. I wanted to be able to control the power from a
computer so I could produce a consistent roasting profile. I also
thought it would be fun to try and put it together :-)Bloody Ripper.. *I would suggest you follow up with SiliconChip as I would like to see you get some brownie points for the effort you and ya mates have put into it..Id also like to say a big thank you to CoffeeSnobs for all the ideas that
went into the above. I wouldnt have tried to build this without seeing
all the great results everyone else got with a Corretto roaster,
and seeing the nice CS Java RoastMonitor app.
Will do some research as I can see that it could also assist in a mod to teh KKTO and add some level of technology to that system as well. Would be great to manage the heating... But the knockout would be to also be able to control the fan *;) ie. Dual output..*(Windows version is due when ? *;))
In particular... If the unit is made with the option of other uses..
