  • Crazy Popper Mods - where to stop?

    Hey all, Im new to new to CS and am keen to statrt trying some roasting. Thanks to all the info posted on using / modifying a crazy popper, I can wait to give it a try.

    A friend just gave me a PID set point controller and I am toying with the idea of using it with a crazy popper to control the rate of temp increase during the roast. Has anyone else tried this or am I just going too far? For 100g roast, what would be an ideal time to aim for between 1st and 2nd cracks?

    No, not going too far. Its been done before. See here for example:

    1st and 2nd crack targets? You may get different opinions on this, and depends on bean type etc, but generally 1st should start around 8-10mins, and Ive been stretching out start of 2nd to 5-7mins after that, depending on bean.
