Alchemist John’s Oven Cocoa Roasting Log

In general, if you try oven roasting, you will start hot (350-400 F) for a short amount of time and slowly lower it to your target temperature (275-300 F).   This is for about 2 lb/1 kg of beans.  The more you are roasting, the higher your initial temperature can and has to be and the time will probably be a little longer.

Remember, you want to roast the cocoa beans, not bake them.  This is how that looks:

Whole cocoa beans

375-400 F 5 minutes

350 F 5 minutes

325 F 5 minutes

300 F for 10-15 minutes or until done*.  Look for the aroma of baking brownies and/or pops.  Both are good indicators you are there.

*For an even better indicator of a complete roast, use an infrared thermometer and roast until the beans show 250-260 F.  Make sure you stir the beans before taking your reading so you don’t have a high bias.

how to custom draft underwear

account for stretch (ease)

dont stretch elastic when sewing. make smaller than measurements by a certain amount, maybe an inch or two of “negative ease”

” I should also point out that you could stretch just about anything until the point of breaking if you really try. The important thing is to make sure that you can stretch at least 25 percent without getting any resistance from the threads holding the seam together. If possible, aim for at least 50 percent stretching, especially if you are sewing a garment that will remain stretched when on the body.”

knit bindings: knit running lengthwise, use 1.25 to 2 inches, folded in half and ironed flat also lengthwise. then sew it on stretching the binding to match the leghole, before side seam is done up

leg bindings 80 or 90 % of original length of the leg hole. add bindings before side seam is done upfinish knit binding with a twin needle

To complete your binding, simply fold the binding over and toward the inside of the garment. Using a twin needle or a zigzag stitch, topstitch around each of the openings.
