: action shots.
So, I went through the dry burn cycle to prime the roaster, longest 20 minutes of the day. :0)
Roasted 1/2 pound of Monsooned Java Arabica, 1/2|P5|D|+|+|Start
Awesome. Virtually silent, perfect full city roast based on the recommended cycle in the manual, aroma but no visible smoke, virtually silent, easy view through the window, virtually silent.
Did I mention it makes no noise? After doing the Whirley Pop for 2 years, that's a huge factor. :0)
After the dry burn plus the roast, every smoke alarm in the house went off. No visible smoke, but I'm guessing some particulates. I'll give it another shot though with a single cycle.
Overall, best purchase I've made this year hands down.
Water, Grain, Hops, Yeast: combine, age, consume.
"You remind me of that scene from Zoolander....the one where the male models are dancing while spraying each other with gasoline..."
"If there is anything that this horrible tragedy can teach us, it's that a male model's life is a precious, precious commodity. Just because we have chiseled abs and stunning features, it doesn't mean that we too can't not die in a freak gasoline fight accident. " ~Derek Zoolander
