Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

Finally broke in the Turbo Baker II
jzuzphreek
So last weekend I got to use my new HG/BM setup. I think I'll need very FEW modifications to the BM to make it more roast-friendly. I LOVE the thick glass lid, but don't know of any way I can cut it to make a hole for the gun to shoot through. My first roast, I just left the lid open - not the best scenario, but it got the job done. Also, I need to find a way to attach a thermocouple inside the bean canister. I think I can go down the outside and up through the hole where the paddle sits.

Using an oven mitt and working carefully, I was able to lift the canister (with the paddle) and empty the beans into my stainless steel colander (sitting on a fan) while only losing 10 beans (yeah, I counted).

The only 2 unfortunate occurrences where that I roasted a little too light, VERY bright in the 4 cups of pour-over I've done. Also, when I sat down the (VERY HOT) canister after emptying into the colander, my 27 month old (who LOVES roasting with me) reached over suddenly to grab the canister. He wasn't seriously wounded, but I don't think he'll be trying that again!

Hopefully your son is faring well after his first roasting mishap.

Did the topless HGBM produce a good roast?

Just saw your response Allen.

My first roast was terrific (well, terrific to me compared to my past roasts). My second roast wasn't as terrific. I ended up tipping the beans and didn't get close enough to second crack. I stopped way to early, and still scorched my beans. The flavor still comes through with a pour over brew, but I have to sweeten the cup with sugar/splenda to mask the smokey flavor.

Incidentally, I tried a few shots with my new Mypressi, and the espresso was so bright I practically saw spots! Not pleasant at all, but at least it was because of the roast and not my technique! ThumbsUp

Also, does anyone have any tips for cutting a hole in a glass dome. I'd like to use the dome if possible, because it's great being able to see the roast without having to open and close the lid. I've seen plenty of tutorials for cutting glass bottles, but I'm just interested if anyone has experience cutting holes in glass.

The glass in question is probably 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.
