After a grueling weekend scraping and scrubbing, the little roaster is back on line at the main store. It has been 6 months since we last cleaned out this roaster, we use to clean it every 3 months but with the new half bagger taking on the bulk of production we scaled back with the little one. As it turns out, 6 months is far too long - or it could have been the last time we cleaned the conversion fitting going into the chaff cyclone was really not cleaned out enough and consequently created faster build up. Whatever the case, we plan to break into it again in about 4 months just to see how its doing.
Big kudos once again to Adam Schley for putting in the brunt of the work, kudos also to Adam Moore, who out of curiosity got roped into a dirty project!
