Hello Experts,

I've purchased recently a Twirlo Coating Machine with both SS & Copper kettles 7 Litter each (I have also and Sprayer head connected via heated hose from my Savage tank). I would like to coat Nuts and Coffee beans and possibly at a later stage dried fruits, caramels, marzipans, and Jordan Almonds. Any advice where to start (I need a jumpstart on techniques), do you know any supplier(s) in the US where I can buy quality ingredients?

Many thanks and looking forward to hearing from you!

here's a link to a TheChocolateLife discussion with a wealth of technique information.

You've probably already seen it, but I wanted to share it anyway.

In this discussion Jim Greenberg suggested using to acquire polishes etc. I just requested samples from them and am looking foward to playing. I just picked up a Kitchen Aid panning drum and while it is itty bity, it will be good enough to learn on.

Thanks Larry, I've just read the material (Good stuff to Start). I've also ordered samples as well and will share results once done.
