Mr. UPS man brought a nice, shiny new Alp to my door today!  I promptly 
unpacked it and threw in a full batch of Monkey Blend.  Roasted to a 
roaring second crack in about 17:50 in a 60 degree basement.  Roast 
looks pretty even, a few beans got stuck in the drum, and my exhaust 
system I've been using with my poppers really worked great (6" muffin 
fan mounted in a board, stuck in the window, with 4" dryer vent hose 
hooked to a plastic ABS drain tile 4" to 5" reducer as a nozzle - which 
is hooked to a spring arm desk lamp w/o the lamp as a positioner).
Anyway, I can't wait to let it rest a while and see if I truly get a 
better cup vs. my poppers.  Volume of the green beans was 1-1/2 cups, 
about two batches in my Poppery Mk. I's or 'original' Pumpers, so it 
works out pretty good.
For improved cooling, I cracked the lid about 1/2" just after the cool 
cycle began.  The beans in the cup were warm, but I'd guess no more than 
110F, and at least as cool as a popper roast after a 2 minute cooldown. 
  Definitely acceptable cooling, IMHO.
Gonzo has a Hottop, so you can bet there's going to be some comparison 
roasts going on here!

Congrats all you new Alps owners. Hope yours arrives soon Ron. I'm not
hoping for an Alps 'under the tree' tomorrow. But if a SS Rock isn't there
I'll be on the web tomorrow night!
