First of all, I want to that everyone for the advice and experience on stirring/not stirring with the PII. I ended up sort of doing a combination..... I left the lid on, and then would lift out the butter tray and give it a quick stir with the handle of a wooden spoon every now-and-then. That seemed to work pretty good, even if to just clean out a burst of chaff. After a minute or so the beans were rotating fairly fast but more circular than up and down....that is why I still stirred now and then. I tipped it backwards (1/4" or so under the front feet) as one site suggested which really helped in the circulation.
I roasted in the garage, as it was snowing in Colorado Springs today. I can't imagine doing it in the house....? My first batch was some Kenyan Peaberry's, and now I can't wait to try them tomorrow. I am NOT going to make it 24 hours, just until morning..they smell great! It sure was easy, and hope I am not disappointed tomorrow!
Thanks to all again!
