I used 9 0z and, no I didn't check the level but I will. Thanks Pam
Pam, Bear in mind that there will always be a small amount of stacking against the viewing window. That is normal - and the beans are being mixed by the Helical wire in the drum. If you look at the amount of coffee you have installed in a glass - you will see that what is on the viewing window only represents a small amount - and is representative of the distribution across the length of the drum.

Pam: your nine ounces is 279 grams. I usually roast 300 grams and when level, the rolling beans occupy the lower !/3 of the sight glass in the front cover.
"John - aging HotTop pilot" Is that John piloting an aging HotTop, or an aging John piloting a HotTop, or an aging John piloting an aging HotTop? :-) DJ Aging pilot crashing his HotTop
I'm not sure - everything is getting old DJ. But I think I meant that I was aging and the pilot of a HotTop - but since my HotTop is number 6 then maybe we're both aging :o) And the way it looks at the moment - I've been piling it up a lot lately - I have it apart to work on the beeper problem.

Thanks to all of you. 1/3 of the window is about what I am seeing. Next time I roast I will use the flash light to look at the rest of the drum. Also, I will make sure it is level. I will probably roast tomorrow. I did 2 roast with it so far, one too dark, one too light. I was way too busy today to do any. I have to work to pay for these toys. I work at home but some days are real tigers. BTW, "Starbutts" has my vote. But I am pretty sure my family won't try it. They wrinkle thei noses at anything avant-guard. I know it isn't really, but to them it is. Pam
