I use a ceramic type insulation
This is similar to the type that is used in kilns ect

However any insulation that exceeds the heat that the roaster produces should be OK

A buddy of mine has a welding blanket he would give to me for some coffee. I know its not insulation but the heat rating would be acceptable....

That will work fine
Just remember to look at the drawings I have uploaded on the main thread as to position ect
All the info to build this type roaster has been covered in great detail
It's important to follow the roast chamber volume recommendations for best results

Depends on the version one is building ?
However both versions -
The KKTO V1 is insulated under the false floor & externally for best results
The KKTO V2 is insulated in a similar manner but has a manufactured liner and has an air gap on the sides so it works like double glazing
