Thread subject: Homeroasters.org :: Brewer to Roaster..blower question...

I'm just starting to get some stuff together to build my fluid bed roaster.
I will be using a Bloomfield Airpot Brewer to house everything, so it will have a very nice, commercial kitchen, appearance.
I think I want to use a 5" x 14" Pyrex tube for the main part of the RC.
From what I've been reading here, vacuum cleaner motors are the choice of many of you 'expert' fluid bed builders. However, I'm looking at hot tub blowers. How many beans can I stir in my glass RC with 70 cfm from a 2 inch outlet??
