                Leftover greens from beanbays past....Today a little Ugandan, Brazil and something else...All taken to just before third crack to season the drum *cough cough*

                Great to have a big new toy!

                  "Hazel" sounds like a deserving name for a Has Garanti or maybe Hannah.... 8-)

                    A name! I hadnt thought about a name yet Mal...

                    I suspect you are right that its a feminine roaster- for after roast #1 on Sunday night, the heels were dug in and it refused to proceed.

                    Punchline was an unusual thermocouple wiring setup which was sending shutdown signals to the pilot  ....All solved though and working beautifully...

                    Hannah I like....Hazel would just intmidate me...Way too high expectations for absolute perfection EVERY time

                    Perhaps out of respect, we should call it "Hawker" ??

                    Any other suggestions?

                    Chris

                      Your Roaster should be called Capucine
                      Its a real girls name & its of French origin

                      I also like Mandy

                              After a 4 hour stint on Dudley Im still buzzing.  Amongst a number of other roasts, 2.5kg of Bolivian Cup of Excellence did their stuff in the drum.

                              Ill admit I was nervous and will remain so until I try the results.  At first I thought they were going to roast unevenly, as some almost went white at 135 degrees.  Considerable chaf and then a transformation.  All the beans took on the same colour, and I dumped the beans at the first signs of 2nd crack.  Every single bean looks perfect to my eye, and I never imagined this to be possible.

                              Thanks for making these available Andy.  I hope Ive managed to get this roast right and that we can all enjoy them together at our re-opening.

                                Had a party this weekend and stocks of roasted beans are critically low

                                Roasted in 2 x 600gr batches of each bean = total of 2.4 kg (4 roasts)
