Topic: Home made drum roaster question (2 msgs / 44 lines)
1) From: NOEL HONG
Are the perforations small enough to roast Yemens, Ethiopians and other 
small beans? Is the drum (?Frontgate trash can) stainless steel? At what rpm 
are people running their drums?

The perforations are not small enough to roast the smallest beans.  I'm still
looking for a cheap, easy, ready made stainless drum that can do that.
It is stainless steel.
I'm running mine at 30 RPM and that seems perfect. A 6 RPM motor was OK, but
30 RPM really agitates the beans well.  It has a nice beat too .
