    UPDATE!!

    The names Evan...EvanS. Yes I still AM!!

    Roaster - FreshRoast 8 Plus
    Grinder (Primary) - GOT Rancilio Rocky Doserless
    Grinder (Backup) - Cuisinart Burr CCM16
    Drip (Primary, for wife) - Cuisinart Brew Central 12-cup
    Drip (backup) - Free Gevalia 12-cup
    Press - Bodum 32oz and 48 oz.
    Mokapot - 3 cupper (and the reason for the need of new grinder)
    Attitude - Better and better all the time
    Disposition - Still Questionable

    Been roasting using the FR8 for about 1 month, which equals 3 lbs worth of 1/2 lb samples. So far so good! Saw the Cuisinart Burr getting sloppy, both silting my press pot and putting chunks in my Mokapot, so pulled the trigger on a Rocky just last night. Learning just how quickly the start of 2nd crack turns into the end of 2nd crack.

    Looking forward to RRA 07/08

    Roaster - Dog Bowl, Wooden Spoon, Wagner HT3500
    Grinder - Horrible Krups whirlyblade
    Press - Bodum Kenya 32oz
    Mokapot - 8 cupper
    Attitude - Uweh?
    Disposition - Happy go lucky

    So I started roasting about two weeks ago. I don't really drink coffee too much because it makes me way sleepy and jittery. Anyway, I've been using the dog bowl method and it works pretty well the more I roast, the better my roasts are. I grabbed the 3lb peaberry special over at Burman and two lbs of Nicaraguan Pacamara peaberry. Mixed 'em all up and have a ridiculously balanced blend.

    I have a vacpot coming in.

    I'm also a yerba mate enthusiast. I've been drinking yerba mate for just over two years now. Far cleaner energy than the nasty jitters and sleepiness I get from coffee. Doesn't taste as good though. Although yerba mate is good with a cigar.

    Welcome to the club, Mi'ke. I hope you find a lot of enjoyment with the hobby - and I know you'll find a better brew in your cup.

    Is the Wikipedia write up on yerba mate about equal to your experience?

    If ya gotta shorten it, try Mith. My name is Matt.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yerba_mate

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mate_%28beverage%29

    Both articles are pretty good. I must say that I prefer the elaborada style mate without stems. http://www.yerbaguru.com/ is an excellent source. There used to be a good shop here in the Phoenix area but it was evicted about three weeks. Taragui blue is good.

    Drinking mate now (at work) and I always get comments. It's funny.

    grinder: a B&D whirlley(for now)






    well, I can finally post in this thread

    I just finished my first roast in my presto poplite popper, and everything went well. No fires and not as much smoke in my garage as I would have expected. The beans I tried out first were some 'Mexico Organic Nayarit Terruno' from the sampler I purchased from sweetmarias. I didn't time anything for the first run, just watched it very closely and observed the changes of the beans while they roasted. I could here the first crack very well and took them to 45seconds to a minute past. I'm pretty sure I didnt get into second crack at all, but the whole process couldnt have taken more than 10 minutes tops.


    The beans have a slight bitter smell to them(from what I can tell with a stuffed up head) and are pretty dark in color. Now I have to wait a couple days to see if this first run was a success. thanks to all u knuckleheads for starting me down another hill




    oh ya...I have chaff in places I didnt know I had


    edit...did a second roast and went a little darker. first crack 4 minutes in, second crack started at 6 minutes in and was pretty much done at 7. is it normal for second crack to be as loud as first crack?


    here are my results

    Welcome to the growing fraternity of cigar-puffing home roasters, B'oods. I hope you find as much pleasure and enjoyment with this craft/hobby as I have.

    Poplites tend to be bean burners except on cold days; they sometimes do better with fewer beans and/or a long extension cord to settle the heat down a bit. Good luck and enjoy the results.

    Allan,

    As always your contributions are a pleasure, especially so when coming thru a haze of cloying smoke that promises better coffee and many smiles a few days hence. From skillet to Behmore I am glad you've joined the fraternity of home roasters and hope you find as much enjoyment from the hobby/craft as I have.

    I am advised I must spread more rep around before passing a bump your way. Perhaps some other BOTB will oblige. Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year, Sy'ick.
