Tryer: Install or Not?


#1

I just received my tryer kit, I have a pre order Bullet where the tryers were not installed yet.
Do you Bullet users use or like the tryer or is the door viewing enough? Any thoughts or regrets?


#2

Go for it …I use it to confirm yellowing during the roast ,relatively easy to assemble.


#3

Yellow is really easy to see through the window, isn’t it? I roast outdoors. When I use the tryer, my ROR plummets. This is when it’s 30-45f out. Maybe I should use something to plug the hole when I have a sample out.


#4

I am about the unhandiest person I know, and I was still able to install the tryer without much trouble. The directions were really very good.

I like the tryer a lot. I don’t keep it pulled out for very long and I haven’t noticed any adverse effect on my roasts, even though I roast in my garage and it could be 40 degrees or less there in the wintertime.


#5

Well, I sat down to install my new kit, I’m glad I tried to put the handle together before I took apart my Bullet, the insert in the wood handle has a threaded tapered metal insert that has glued in it and not enough threads to start the screw before the quick taper, impossible. I even had to remove the overflow of glue to see what I was dealing with… frustrating.


#6

I use it in all my roast :+1:t2:


#7

Same here. It’s tough for me to imagine roasting without my tryer. Hope you get it situated!


#8

I don’t use the tryer, but I installed it anyway figuring that any future firmware updates will be based on it being in place. So I’m basically keeping my roaster the same as current production.


#9

I have not observed a drop in ROR when roasting outdoors.


#10

I installed the tryer kit this morning and just completed my first roast with the tryer, I actually went well into second crack, a place I rarely ever go, It was great being able to look at the beans and give them a little smell.
I’m really digging my Bullet.


#11

i went back and removed it
imho the airflow is better without - and since the air i unparalleled cold compare to a gasroaster it helps imo
