I just wanted to let you know I did my first roast on my 8lb. drum yesterday. It went really well. I was able to get the universal rottisserie to work with a little modifying. I tried to follow the 6lb. drum roast profile from the roasting guide. I did experiance a uneven roast for my first try, but the coffee was still, delicious! It is very exciting roasting with this system. My cooling tray will blow the beans up in the air if its not on low! Otherwise the fans air swirling motion actually stirs the beans like there was a sweeper arm. I cant wait to give it another go. I can really see a perfect profile that will easily be developed with a few more times. Thanks alot and I’ll get you out some photos soon. Jay S.
