Anyone used the Olde Tyme peanut butter mill to make pnut butter?


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

We have an old tyme. We use it mostly to pre grind cacao but have run nuts through there as well. It makes a pretty ruff grind peanut butter.  No reason the sugar couldn't go through it but it wouldn't do much to it as it doesn't grind down much smaller than the sugar is already. The best I have seen yet is the robo coup Blixer 5 about $3000 and the best deal for the money. Grinds nuts into paste very well and super fast. It also combines ingredients together well. This is what we are looking at for anything to do with nuts.

Anybody ever have vanilla make a batch of chocolate sour?


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

Hi there guys,

Im wondering if anybody has any experience with vanilla interacting adversly with the acids in a batch of chocolate bringing out a strong sour flavor? When adding the same vanilla to a batch made with a less acidic bean it did just fine. Mind you were talking half a teaspoon of seed scrapings to 30lbs of chocolate, not very much, but a very distinct diffrence before and after addition of the vanilla. To the point of, in my opinion, ruining the chocolate.

Brazil Roast


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

Hi there,

I couldnt claim to know much of anything really but as some smaller grinders dont heat up much, which helps burn off the acids a bit, you may need to run your grinder anywhere from 1-4 days to mellow the acids you have in there. You could also try adding some heat with a heat gun as well but would want to be sure you dont burn the chocolate. Above 140f for an hour or two would help. Beyond that you could try lifting your time and temp on the roast and see about burning out more of the acids in the begining.
