1 lb roasted lasts a week. I can taste the flavor increase to peak, then drop after. Still very good, but interesting to follow the wave of flavor rise and fall.

I seem to have lost any roasting touch I thought I had. Very frustrated to be wasting time and money. I’m hoping someone can provide some insight on roasting at high altitude. I’m at 4400ft. Thank

Modified SR700 300g Fluid-Bed Roaster
Hi all,

I am new to the forum and have been working on building a home roaster. I came across CK build and it blew me away. I asked him for recommendations and he recommended I start a thread to talk about the roaster I am building to get more ideas.

I decided to start with the base from my FreshRoast SR700 since I spent some time writing python scripts to get FreshRoast talking with Artisan and I was able to roast up to 200g with a larger glass chamber.

I integrated a Phidget setup and cyclone chaff collector. I am in the process of modifying the top to help ease the workflow of set up and take down.

I am currently trying to figure the best way to go from the roast chamber to the chaff collection. I tried to post a few pictures but I need to edit them to meet the site requirements so pictures coming soon. For now here is a link to my current setup. Used a hose as a temporary POC to make sure the cyclone was working correctly.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
