Topic: first stir crazy roast (3 msgs / 41 lines)
1) From: Kris Bhatti
I've been roasting with the HG/BM more than a year now and have been really happy with the results.  I bought a convection oven at the thrift store last year for $5 hoping that one day I'd find a Stir Crazy so I could try this method as well.  I finally got a SC last week for $2.50 and just tried it out this morning.   I like it!  I really liked how quiet it is.  I didn't do a dark roast, so I haven't completely melted the plastic knob yet but I'm heading to the hardware store today to get the copper cap I saw on CG.  All this time I waited to find a Stir Crazy and now I saw another one just yesterday.  I didn't want to get a backup until I actually tried it, but if it's still there today I'm getting it.  Both it and the one I got had never been used.  As long as I am patient, the thrift store provides most everything I need for roasting - except the beans of course!

Yes, over time the thrift stores provide almost all of the necessities and
many of the frills as well. It is amazing what folks throw away.

It sounds like the Pacific Northwest thrift stores are particularly
rich in coffee equipment. When it comes to coffee equipment in the
parts of the country where I have lived, it's bleak, even for hot air
poppers.
