Topic: CRLM vs La Berliner [[was RE: +Why vary fan speed fluid bed roasting?]] (4 msgs / 99 lines)
1) From: John Abbott
Yes I have tried La Berliner in the HotTop and it is simply wonderful.  I
have about 30# of CRLM and need to drink it regularly to keep it inside the
safe window. I have most stored in Vac Bags, but I feel better turning my
stock every quarter to half year.  I just have 3.5# of the La Berliner
left -  need to order MORE!!
 I have a cheap and dirty system in mind - a multiple tapped board with load
resistors switched in/out of the circuit. I don't think I'll need more that
three speeds in the drum.

John, The La Berlina is one of my favorites, too.  I'd call it my 'usual',
especially for my morning Americano.  Dan

Hmmm.  Have you worked with stepping motors before?

Oh yeah - big time.  My first real experience was deploying a camera on the
Mariner probe :O)  Of course then I didn't have to pay for any of the toys
and had a million dollar lab backing me up.  Now as a retired
engineer/pastor I have to pay all the bills and I do things in a little
cheaper mode.  Running a switch to control two dropping resistors is cheap
and fast.
