Hello from Idaho!
Hello everyone. First post here, but long time guest/learner of roasting bits.

Been roasting over a year with a heat gun and drum setup with moderate success. It's pretty redneck, but it gives me a fair amount of control (temp/drum speed), especially for a total cost under $100 (heat gun and volt meter). I've since added a switch for the drill (on/off) and a heat shield/cap for the drum.

I've been lucky enough to get some exposure to roasting with a Sivetz build bed roaster from a friend who roasts for his coffee shop. He loaned me Sivetz's text book Coffee Technology and enjoyed and learned a lot from that book.

I've been slowly designing and acquiring parts for a bench-top drum roaster, but having little kiddos and a day job has slowed that project down a bit. I hope to pick up some more knowledge from the forum on getting that design off the ground.

I am new here too but have had a chance to scout around and found an enormous archive of information. Just go to the Forum index and pick your area to view.. If you want, you can turn tracking on or off in the upper right of the OP (original post) so you do not miss any responses.
