"First some background and a little on what we're trying to accompish... The cocoa butter in chocolate 'crystallizes' when it cools. The problem is, that it can crystallize in many different forms (at least six). The type you want is…"

"Without seed you're going to have a really tough time getting anything to temper with these machines -- the machine will tell you when to add and remove the seed. Without that you won't get the beta crystals (or at least not enough of them…"

"I was making dark. Based on what both you and David are telling me, I need to make some temperature adjustments and warm up the molds and chill after filling them. I will also pay close attention to the humidity and crank up the dehumidifier to full…"

"Hi Jack. I do not know ANYTHING about making chocolate, but I did just purchase a Rev Delta in the spring of this year. I could not get anything to temper with the preset temps. The melting temp is too low for really high quality chocolate. You can…"
