I have been trying Scott Rao Hario V60 pourover this week. 1:17 and blooming with 2 parts water the first 45 seconds then splitting the rest into 2 pours. A little stirring is included. We like it.

My brew ratio is 1:17 (exactly 59.5 g/L). That's roughly 8.5g per 5-oz cup.

I'm looking to hire someone to teach/help me to find the best roast profile for the 3 types of coffee that grow on my farm in nicaragua. I live in LA, but but could go anywhere in so cal with my Behmor for a roasting lesson. Please contact me if you're in

When your wife thinks 30 grams for a 6 cup setting is strong, you learn to drink muddy water when you are making coffee for both of you.

I use a rule of thumb of 60 grams per liter. 8 cups (1 liter, 32 oz) = 60 grams, 6 cups (3/4 liter, 24 oz) = 45 grams. 10 cups = 75 grams 12 cups = 90 grams

Control for drum roaster
BobbyS
Does a drum roaster respond fast enough for PID control?
Ringo
Yes, most commercial drums have pid control. This is an update I want to make to my drum someday. I believe I could have more consistent results with pid.

Be careful to evaluate if a roaster is really a drum roaster... the presence of a drum don't make it automatically a drum roaster.
The true nature of a roaster is the predominant source of the heat.
Could be hot air, and drum only an agitation method. In this case is a convection roaster, and air temp response to PID is very good.

I'm just gonne keep these questions in this thread instead of making a new one.

Question: for a 1k to 2k roaster, how big of a blower would I need. I have my eye on a round pan, 18 inch dia. for a cooling tray
dmccallum
The San Franciscan SF-1 uses a 130CFM blower. I intend to use this one for my build - https://www.grain...plit-3FRG2

The SF-1 uses a single blower for both roast draw and cooling tray and switch via a gate/valve.

You might get away with less, but assuming San Fran have it right.
BobbyS
good to know dm, thanks! I have a 227cfm that I am going to use for the cooling tray. I think I will give it a shot to use it for both too.
