Had a bit of time to roast a few batches this morning. Roast in uninsulated
garage, ambient this morning outside 18f garage 25f. No biggy, have roasted
in colder! First Rosto batch did some FTO Harar. Didn't even need to use a
boxtop. Did use three sided cardboard closely enclosing sides and back of
Rosto plus 2/3 covered exhaust vent for greater recirculation. Only had to
peak heater voltage (130v) briefly during a couple segments to maintain
profile. (Have roasted in the teens in the past, then need to use a top for
more heat retention.) Followed with a half of 11/04 Jarimillo Gesha, now off
to cold roast a half of Rancho Aloha Kona.

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.
