Woodblock Chocolate's Portland Pipeline

"Hey Charley - reminds me of the plans Henry Weinhard had to pipe beer throughout downtown Portland to the public water fountains. I like yours better. When you're done, let's do this in Manhattan!"

"Todd: Thanks for posting the video on the peanut grinder. I'd heard about the issues related to it seizing potentially, so I am happy to hear that the newer version seems to have addressed these issues. Also took a look at your sorter/winnower…"

"It may be harder to find one used, but I'd definitely recommend getting the new version if you can. The new version (PN2) has an upgraded motor that can burn through all of the nibs without having to feed it slowly. It also makes less noise, is…"

"Hi Clay,   I haven't measured the particle size, but it's definitely not liquor. It's more of a thick, chunky paste. I got it hoping that it would output a more flowing liquor, but it doesn't. I've attempted feeding the…"

"Ben: I've been looking at these as an option for a small liquor grinder for some time now. Have you measured the particle size coming out of the pb grinder? Interested in knowing about where it is - and what your experience is with throughput…"

"Hi Charley. Yep, I use it to pregrind cacao before putting it into a melanger, and I've spoken with a couple other makers who do as well. I didn't do any modifications other than adjusting the opening a little bit."

"Thanks Ben.  Do you grind cacao in your peanut grinder? Did you have to do any modifications to the grinding plates or anything? I appreciate it,     Charley"

"Hi Charley. I've never seen one of these, but it's almost identical to an Olde Tyme Peanut Butter grinder. The only difference is that the PB grinder has a sheet metal casing for the motor and the grinding plates look a little different.…"

charley wheelock replied to Michelle-Jo Garfield's discussion Has anyone attempted flavoring their chocolates with beer?
"  i tried to infuse hops into cocoa butter. It worked pretty well but it gave my chocolate too much of a bitter hoppy finish. I want the hops up front and tail off into chocolate sweetness. I was toying with the idea of putting a thin layer of…"

Seneca Klassen replied to charley wheelock's discussion aging chocolate in temper in the group The Science of Chocolate
"I think it's fair to say that chocolate clearly ages whether or not it's in temper. However, whether those changes would be different in an untempered state is probably one of those Rumsfeldian 'known unknowns' that are so common…"

It just took too long to temper and too long to work with with.
