Chocolate not tempering with machine

Recommended Posts

Hey guys :) 

 

Im having difficulties with my tempering machine. The chocolate is not in temper. Ive made several tests and they all have certain marks on. 

Im in a hot country so i make sure to have my mould in temper and then i pop them in the fridge to make sure they set properly. 

Any tips? Something i should be considering? 

Anything would be of great help!!!!

Could you please explain what you mean? My machine shows two temperatures. Tank temperature and chocolate temperature.

What then are your tank temperatures and chocolate temperatures? If your chocolate temperature is 31.3 - that seems a bit high - go for something between 30.0 and 31.0.

      Has anyone worked with the Agostoni chocolate couverture? Mainly interested in experience with moulding bonbons. I found a post here from 2012, but with only one reply, so I thought I’ll ask the question again. 
       
      Agostoni is an Italian chocolate maker that apparently has been around since the late 40’s, but I only just heard about them, when I found out they have a supplier in my home country of Norway.

      I make shell molded truffles.  After my neck fusion, shaking out chocolate from the molds is difficult at best.  I went to a local chocolate shop and they have a Savage Brothers temperer with a vibrating machine built in over the bowl.  They flip the mold over, turn the vibrator on, and dump the chocolate that way and it looks wonderful.  They also double wall these truffles.  That machine is $50,000 I'm told.
       
      I need a bigger tempering machine than what I have as well.  I currently use a Revolation Delta and I love it.  I'd get the 3Z but it doesn't have a vibrating machine build in.   I prefer to buy used.
       
      I need suggestions that are in the $5000-$8000 range if they even exist.  I'm self taught so any advice would be helpful.

      I want to make sugar-free bars with Callebaut cocoa liquor and Erythratol.  Any advice on ratios?  Should I make it in my melanger or would just melting, adding and tempering work? I made the mistake of buying Callebaut sugar-free with Maltitol and it is definitely a laxative.  Now still stuck with a lot of it.  Any advice is most appreciated.

      Hi All,
      I am an artist ( oil and pastels) by trade so the coloring of artisan chocolates really appeals to me. I was wondering if I could make my own colored cocoa butter using oil candy colors and cocoa butter, or is there more involved.
      Also, if I add the oil candy color to white chocolate will it affect the temper?
      Thanks,
      Mark

      Hi there, I’m looking for some interesting flavours for truffles. Any combination of filling and coating ideas? For lemon, dark ganache, orange and caramel example. 
      I also realised that when deciding to use ready made truffle shells filling needs to have a creamy texture. Any advice on this?
