My spice/coffee grinder with blades can pulse. It just turns every thing to a fine powder fast. I just got the lemon drops out of the dehydrator. Put them in a ziplock bag and crushed each one with my fingers. I cant handle another day of "Hunan Hands".
Put them in a mason jar and give it a shake. Most of the seeds end up in the bottom. LOVE the smell of lemon drop powder. Ive got a nice batch that were all deseeded and then sun dried too.
Just tried a 50/50 mix of lumbre and gochu, 7grams each in the blade grinder. Turned out pretty good but definitely on the very upper end for kimchii use. Smells and looks great though. I will sample it in my simple kimchi for hot dogs.
My coffee grinder will also turn the pods into fine powder. And I sometimes do that deliberately. But pulsing in moderation will render whatever coarseness you want.
I have as close to thoroughly as I can reviewed the dehydrators mentioned in this thread as well as a few others. I feel the Weston I initially inquired about will best suit my needs and requirements. Thanks to all involved for all the input and recommendations.
Patience continues to pay off. This just went down to $414.96.
Take note here. This is an important point that many people miss. Photoperiod is not the way of the pepper plant! It doesn't care at all.
I'm surprised by your corner grow statement. That's equivalent to 145W on my 16 square feet. That, plus a room with non-ideal reflections and I really don't expect substantial grow in the corners. Are you meaning that the plants survive? Because they are surely very light starved, no? I can't see them as being very productive at such a low light intensity!
Heat output a positive byproduct? Why? It impacts how close the lights can get to your plants. You can always add heat and isolate your growing area better. Too much heat and you waste both energy and need to vent it out to not cook them.
I dont grow indoors all year long. I start plants in Dec/Jan and grow til plant out around Mothers day.
Heat out put is a positive byproduct? ABSOLUTELY. I can thermoregulate by running 4- 6 hour cycles.
