Welcome ej, great place for a first post. Are you into chocolate in a big way?

HI Kerry

It is a hobby for me. Enough to where I got one of those table-top tempers and an airbrush to recreate what I saw in a Norman Love demo in an old Pastry Arts and Design article. Not enough to sell them or anything. David's report really does reinforce all the lessons JPW tries to teach in his book.

This is a great forum. Thanks to everybody who has posted. You've all helped me a lot already. All of the problems I've had - difficulty in sealing molds, differences in chocolate viscosity (which David answered, I had no idea about the different Callebauts) - I"ve seen discussed on this forum already.

      So im looking for the most affordable chocolate shaking table that actually works.. does anyone have experience with the ones from AliBaba or china in general?
      i bought a $100 dental table from amazon but i guess its not the right hrtz cause it kinda works, but not well enough.

      I was just wondering what PSI you all generally use for your compressors for molded bonbons? I'm sure the effect you're trying to get influences how high or low you run the compressor, but to just get a general nice even coat, what PSI do you all recommend?

      Hello everyone! 
      Im in need of your expertise! Ive been having troubles with my machine, or maybe not even my machine. 
      Ive attached an image (hopefully its clear) to show you a mould that has different tempering problems. I dont understand how one mould can have several different tempering issues. 
      Ive also been advised to have my machine between 30C-31C, however all ive known is to use dark chocolate between 31-32C. Ive done tests from 30C-32C and none have the outcome that is expected, that shiny chocolate. 
      Please share your knowledge  I really need it!! 
      Thank you!!!

      Hello. Thank you for allowing me to join. I am from the sunny Florida. I just started venturing into the chocolate world and am loving it. I am in awe of all the mold chocolate creations and want to be able to make decent pieces. Beside that I also love making macarons. I hope to learn more from all the experts in here. Thank you
