Topic: Use caution cleaning your roaster! (4 msgs / 96 lines)
1) From: Dave Huddle
Just this week, I learned a  valuable lesson about removing chaff from
my Behmor.
It is VERY important to be sure that the hose on your small shop-vac
is connected to the vacuum side and NOT to the exhaust/blowing side.
It really makes a mess in your indoor roasting area if the hose is
incorrectly connected.
I'd still have chaff in my hair - if I had any hair!
On the other hand, I learned that the vent hood in the new roasting
room (also laundry room)  pulls really well.    I had to turn the vent
off so I could remove all the chaff pulled up onto the filter.
I suppose this event confirms the message on my office door  - "DRINK
COFFEE  Do Stupid things faster with more energy"
That's my homeroasting educational message for today.

I don't have a Behmor, but I could add another word of advice.
Yesterday morning, I stumbled into the kitchen to make my cuppa coffee in my
Chemex.
All was fine - decided to put the filter in a bowl so I could pour my cup.
Didn't realize that there was
more water still in the filter. Also didn't have a secure hold on the
filter. Coffee (grounds and liquid)
got all over my arm, counter top and floor. A quick dunk under running water
prevented a burn, and
I realized that I *really *need a cup of coffee first, in order to make my
first cup of coffee...

No coffee was harmed during this occurrence; I still had a great cup of
homeroast.
