Using Huky with home natural gas hookup?

I installed my North 500g in a walk-in basement and had some trouble finding a professional gas installed to work on a home roaster. US code requires stainless steel B1 vent for gas venting. Single walled can be safely used if spacing codes to combustibles - like wood - are observed. You will need a stainless steel venting system

AeroPress Metal Filter Comparison?

The Fellow Prismo comes with a metal filter but I think the gasket is too thick to work with the regular filter cap. {link}

La Marzocco GS3 MP -Steam boiler reads over 3bar cold

Ignore the question about the toothed wheel. I don't recall ever having used the hot water dispenser so I had forgotten that the toothed wheel was accessible behind the side panel to mix water temp. I am beginning to think that the steam boiler solenoid valve may be stuck open. With the machine completely disconnected from power when

Lelit Bianca V3: My wordy impressions after 2 months of use

That's why I wrote that 20 seconds is too short. You could potentially accomplish the same steps by programming the machine pre-infusion options, but there's no way to set a 30 seconds pause (20 is the maximum). At least not with the current firmware. This should be trivial for Lelit to add

How much does roasting affect cup score?

What is interesting is that a mediocre roaster that is good enough to not cause roast defects but not good enough to highlight the coffee in its best light isn't completely hamstringing a coffee. A 1.5 point difference is nothing to sneeze at (especially at the upper end) but it isn't a staggering change. An 83 "good" coffee

Using Huky with home natural gas hookup?

I think the Huky is fine if you get the new stove AND your intent is a permanent set up. Just have a way to exhaust to the outdoors. If you decide to keep the propane set up, the tank should not be indoors for safety reasons. {image}

The definitive comparison - Synesso MVP vs Speedster

Oh my bad! The danger of ambiguous names. Yes, I meant Lagom mini. I was on my phone, didn't see equipment listed, and forgot there were multiple. We agree completely on the mazzer mini!

Having around 10 bars while brewing on La Marzocco GS/3 AV

Did you plumb it in and set your regulator higher than the factory's? If so, then yes, either adjust your pump or your regulator. Or if the factory set the pump to 9 bar over inlet and you're feeding it water at three bar, you'll get (up to) 12 bar out of the pump. But yes, it
