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

Dryer Heaters
Hi, Anyone tried these Dryer Heaters for fluid bed roaster 240V or can advise. To be with vacuum motor and reducer to 2" or 1.5" for the size of 700 gr roaster.
The Prose, they are good quality from a reputed company with years' life span, just similar to the dryer in your house which you forget about them. and the cons is the size of the housing which they need, Of course, this housing with heat insulation. They work with 240V for 5400 Watt and if with this voltage regulator, it can be reduced. with this quality, they are definitely made from Kanthal, not like these cheap heat gun heaters.
I used this voltage regulator in series after SSR-TC4 to control the maximum wattage for the circuit breaker.

I've incorporated that last dryer heater in my new build. I've installed a dedicated circuit in the garage to take advantage of the increased capacity. However, my Arduino/TC4/ZCD setup isn't set up properly yet so I haven't been able to test it.

I have it housed in a large electrical conduit junction box surrounded by ceramic insulation

What voltage regulator are you referring to?
I have the first voltage regulator. and you can test your heater if you have a voltage regulator alone.
Also, we can set a limit to the heater percentage in Artisan for instance 65% so the power goes maximum 3500 watts so no need for the regulator ( I didn't try this yet).
If possible it will be useful to learn from photos inside your box or any details.
The last one to the right looks slimmer which is better but these two with cylindrical housing looks need only proper reducers.
