Patrick Pineda replied to deedee devi's discussion weight translation from NIB to CACAO LIQUOR in the group HomeBrew Chocolate
"the bean looses roughly 12% of weight in shell and aditional 8-10% in moisture and loss when it comes out as liquor. From the bean expect 78-80% yield on liquor. hope this helps"

Hi Patrick,

 

Thank you for your reply. I live in a small town (Ruma) which is 50km northeast from Belgrade. I would like to start small-scale production of chocolate dipped pretzel rods (and pretzels). I need to organize production of pretzel rods (dough mixing, extruding, baking..) as well as dipping in chocolate. I would appreciate any suggestion concerning small-scale/homemade production this type. For example, I've seen on the net that some producers use portable a/c for making homemade cooling tunnels. Similar ideas about chocolate tempering, melting, dipping, cooling would be more than welcome.  I have limited resources for this plan so I have to improvise for the beginning.

I didn't write in Serbian because I wasn't sure you would understand. Sorry i was wrong.

 

I deleted my comment at the Start Up Central by mistake. I am going to post it again.

 

Thank you in advance

 

Dragan

Patrick,

I am looking to buy bags of cacao beans starting on an intermittent basis and hopefully turning into a regular thing. Clay Gordon said I should contact you. I do import many foods, but I don't want to import the beans myself, but I do have trucks in various parts of the country I can pick up with. Please contact me.

Most memorable chocolate experience:
Riding in the back of a WWII jeep along the Venezuelan Colombian border in search of the rarest Porcelana, the only known example of Porclena grown at high altitude 1,500 MT above sea level.

Meeting the farmer and his family and sharing homegrown coffee with them and their pet parrot.

I Love my job, not just for the adventure but because of the cool people i get to meet and work with.
My favorite chocolate is:
Amedei, Gearhart, Sacred Steve, Mast, Safeway Select (white with blueberry sugar crystals)
