    Saw the email from Klatch about the seraphim coffee brewing machine. Tried to look up some
    details, and seems like it's for professional coffee shops and probably costs a fortune.TD

    I guess it all depends on what type of equipment you are using along with your knowledge base.
    You can have all the brewing knowledge in the world and have equipment incapable of holding
    mash or ferme...

    Personally, right now I don't think it's the roasting equipment that's holding me back. I think
    it's mostly ape running the roaster. Of course, I'd consider a nicer roaster, but i can't see
    going for ...

    I'll let you know. I doubt it is "worth" it, but it will be a novel experience. The other thing
    I noticed was rather uneven roasting of the Maui beans, and I am curious as to why. Uneven
    drying after ...

    Roasted the Hawaiian Coffee today.Anybody who has roasted peaberry coffee knows how difficult
    it is to do, but the peaberry can take a back seat to the Maui beans in terms of difficulty.
    Holy Sheet!I'...

    Thanks.So... 10 min @180, 30 min @ 140 ( I'm guessing 20 min @ 160) my bath only fits 8

    Ok so turns out that the cider in the two quart jar is cleared. This is what I will be using to

    to typica...
