Topic: cleaning the roast chamber (10 msgs / 199 lines)
1) From:
I roast in a fresh roast plus 8 that is now 2 years old.  I am shamed into
admitting that I have been less than regular about cleaning the roast
chamber, to the point that now it is hard to see into.  Regular soap and
water is not doing anything, if anyone has any ideas that might help me see
the beans again I would be grateful

I read somewhere that Fast Orange Citrus cleaner works quite well. But =
use the non pumice kind. Maybe any citrus type cleaner will work.

yes citrus cleaner works, also espresso machine cleaner. If you rae talking
about the glass, I can understand. The rest of the machine; call it patina,
and leave it alone.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Yep, asking about the glass, but what is patina?

5) From: Brett Mason
Patina: coffee colored sludge, derived from coffee oils, which slowly coat
the glass, leaving a warm, burnished appearance, where you used to watch the
beans...

Thats why I made the distinction; Only clean if it stops the watching.

david,
I think I remember reading a tip on a page at SM that they didn't worry
about cleaning the glass very often... so no confessions needed!

'Simply Green'.  It was originally formulated for just this purpose.

Yep - Simple Green is good stuff.   It takes coffee stains/deposits
out of coffee cups, thermoses, etc.    I spritz a bit on a wet paper
towel to wipe the Behmor insides too.
I use it to clean the cat and dog litter boxes.   [YES - my dogs DO
use a litter box!]
