Topic: New Rosto single batch size record! (4 msgs / 83 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
Rosto batch size record for me anyway. I'm roasting on the same 20amp
circuit the majority of my outdoor Christmas display uses. 4pm, timer set to
turn on the display at 4:30, not enough time for two more batches. What to
do. Delay the lights? or...
Since they were to be ISH (only two recipients getting it since they won't
be getting Kona:-), I reduced the individual planned batches from two 1/3#
to a single 9oz weighed greens batch. Finished a couple minutes ago no
problem. Variac allowed to keep the same target profile. Careful gentle
Rockin' Rosto style. Exactly two beans 'escaped' to the chaff hopper. Even
cooled down to usual temp' - course I upped the voltage to 129v for cooling
cycle!
Off to label and bag the Kona & ISH... (I agree Terry, these 1/4# valve bags
are cool - way up town:-) Then get it all to ship tomorrow.
And put a Pork Loin roast went on the Traeger two hours ago:-)

Way to go Mike!  I have been roasting 8 oz in my poppers.  Note the plural.
I have two 110's off a single 220, so I can run two of my WBIs at the same
time!  The BBQ sounds good, you must not be getting as much rain as we are
down here.  I'll be doing my Christmas roasts next week!

Enjoying a fine vac brewed Kona Blue Sky as I type.

I love my little valve bags.  I've already used them for gifts.  The
recipients loved them too.

You really know how to live, Mike.

Oh we're getting our fair share of rain all right. I roast coffee in the
garage. I thought to both Rosto's quickly unplugging from the variac to
fixed 120v for cooling then starting a roast with the other Rosto on the
variac but didn't. Juggling enough as it was. The cool down cycle of the
roast is when I thoroughly de-chaff the previous roast, get the greens for
the next roast etc. (brew a cup, quick check of email, even caught a nibble
or two to eat during the day!)
On the deck out back come rain or sleet or winds or snow the Q must go on!
