help with getting precise weight of chocolate into each mold


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

How did you arrive at 0.01g?  0.01g / 28g is 0.04%.  That seems like it might be overkill for chocolate.  An inclusion would weigh much more than that.

I don't have the answer, but whoever does is going to want to know what accuracy you are seeing and what your target is (i.e., +/- x grams for each case).

Jim Cameron:

Anyone been able to find a good source for round belting pulleys in the USA or reachable location?

No idea if this is anything like what you're looking for (dimensions? load?) but here are some:

You don't say how many you need and I couldn't find any either, but have you considered having them custom printed?

What is closest Guittard chocolate to what See's uses?


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

I have been molding some chocolates using Callebaut Belgian Semi-Sweet Callets 811NV-595 and Belgian Intense Bittersweet Callets 60-40-38NV.  I would now like to try a Guittard chocolate similar to what See's uses.  They apparently use a custom mixture.  Aside from Guittard's vintage chocolate, I don't see a wide variety of Guittard online.  I bought the Callebaut from Gygi and they have Guittard French Vanilla Dark Chocolate Block.  I will try this, but would prefer to find a better starting point.  I am focusing on chocolate in the $8-$13 per kg range (in ~50 kg quantity).
