Topic: Slowing Popper Roasting (10 msgs / 126 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Others on the list are much better at popper roasting than I, but two simple
things you can do"
1)  Reduce the amount of beans roasted per batch ... heat passes through
more than being trapped by the beans.
2)  Use a good quality extension cord ... reduces the voltage ... 40 feet,
60 feet, 100 feet ... make sure cord does not overheat.

adjusting the air fins on the inside of the popper has worked the best for  
me, i started opening four fins at a time ( in the 12, 3 6 9 position) this  
wasn't enough so i opened the next fins in line (1 4 7 10 position) i have  
extend my FC+ roast to 12-13min depending on the bean.

Cold environment helps, or hinders depending on what you're trying to accomplish.
Sweet Maria's staff pointed me to:http://www.edwardspiegel.org/easnuke/modules.php?name=Load_Page&uidůThat page is very good for getting one to benchmark your popper and then make
desired adjustments.

how did you open the fins? i have a poppery II. when i look at my fan, it
has a solid disc with fins on the inside and it doesn't appear that i can
pop off the retaining washer easily.
btw, i really like your suggestion because it's such a simple mod.

Great page, with clear, enlargable photos.
Is that plywood in the last photo a roasting box or part of your work bench or
... ?
The glass chimney is just that, plain glass?  Not pyrex or something special?
