Happy New Year, to you, too, Hank!
Nice work!
Thanks for keeping us posted on your Quest quest! Are you keeping notes on control settings, bean-load, bean-type, and results? When a particular roast batch hits First Crack, how do you "hit the brakes" to extend First and the interval after it and before Second?
I am really hoping someone will host a Quest event somewhere in the San Francisco Bay area!
all the best, and,
Happy Roasting,

> One - build duct work to carry the smoke out the window
> Two - build a funnel to use to dump the beans into the roaster.
