    Heat Gun Volume Question

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all,

    I have been lurking here for a little while and now have become a member and even received my first beans (thanks Andy)!

    Im using a popcorn popper at present and wanted to know if heat guns are as loud as the popper. Im thinking of getting a heat gun, but only if its a bit quieter than the popper.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Heat guns are indeed quieter than a popper.

    Poppers are somewhat problematic when it comes to trying to hear 2nd crack. With experience you can easily discern the rice bubble popping over the fan motor, but just barely. The beans will also give a puff of smoke sometimes when youre into 2nd crack.

    If you use a HG and dogbown method, it is WAY easier to hear the cracks than the popper. But you DO have to stir the whole time. If you build something to stir for you, then that tends to make a noise, which gets you back to square 1 again.

    Im thinking about a BBQ roaster after chrissy anyhow. will see.
