home roasting in one day.
Not really. I'm sure others have done similar. I've actually done more. Last
December I roasted over 8 straight hours for Christmas gift coffee,
something like 24 back to back batches, don't remember the exact number and
am too lazy to look it up!:-)
BTW, the Caffe' Rosto can take it. Forget that cooling between batches
(other than bean cool down cycle.) I always start my roasting sessions by
pre-heating the Rosto so timing is the same as back to back. I'm still using
the same Rosto... (bought a second Rosto when I thought this one was dying,
my mistake. Batteries low in DMM giving false voltage readings on variac!)
BTW again, love the variac. This session started at 76f ambient and last
batch at 62f. Roasted all to same 440f 11:30 total time 6min 380 to 440
development stage. (give or take 5sec)

In a couple years, after I rebound from my current "troubles" my neighbors
won't be able to say a word to me, because I'll have refurbished my garage
with another Diedrich and an afterburner.  To the right of it will be about
15 bags of beans, to the right of it will be shelving and a work surface
with my sealing and labeling equipment.  The only clue that it isn't a
garage anymore will be the Selkirk vent pipe slightly protruding from the
roof.  I can't wait.  It'll give new force to the phrase "home roasting."

dropping by Jim?

9) From: Jim Garlits
Make sure you come through the gate into the back yard.  :)

10) From: Les & Becky
With that size roaster he won't be green very long!  It is all going to turn
brown fast!!!
As my father-in-law says, "I am not envious, I wish I had his and he had a
bigger one!"

11) From: R.N.Kyle

go away, but there is no place like home.
