Lucky I have a nice big patio, and a garage! :)  You'll be dry I promise.  I might get wet making Pizza's that's about it!  :rofl:

I'll understand if anyone can't make it due to weather.  The weatherman can't get it right most of the time so I'm not dooming it yet!

Excellent. I normally ignore the weather man but when it comes to the sunny coast, it gets more than its share of rain. Its like a rain magnet up there  :D

AM - I don't suppose you'd be bringing along your portafilter pressure sensing device thingy? And will it fit in the offset Bezzera PF's?

Don't go to any trouble finding the bits. I'm feeling decidedly CBF about moving my machine yet again.  :rofl:

But yep, I'd like to find out what it's running at now... even if it's not tomorrow.

Does your PF have the 2 little slots in the top rim Kelsey ?


Sooooo, what pizza toppings are people bringing ? I was going to keep it simple but since I haven't gone shopping its going to be really simple - bacon and cheese :rofl: :rofl: I assume that bacon would cook in the oven

Jus is super looking forward to the Pizza - which probably means a baby tonight.

Yep thats them. You cant use the AM style pressure gauge on the bottom of those PF's. We rooted around and got one of AM's other PF's to fit well enough to give us a semi decent reading but it still leaked. Chris has a service one that has no slots but I dont think he would be keen to lend it out with all the 9 bar vs factory setting talk. Then again, never know unless you ask :D Bit of a bugger those slots too. On mine I must get a tiny bit of extraction that comes back up the side of the basket and runs out the slot down the side of the PF. Thought my seal was leaking at first

I have the old PF which is groove less. Haven't tried it in the new machine however.

I'm very tempted to head up the coast in the morning....

I'll probly leave Springwood bout 8.00ish and if someone wants to car pool I'm happy to pick you up and drop off later in the day.

I'll be in the work ute so you can load up the back with as much coffee bling as you like...

Enough room for the kitchen sink...

Should be fun...

Hey,
Thanks guys, couldn't  make it but now I can at least see what's happening!

I couldn't get this vision to work on my iPad but I've taken over someone's laptop at basketball.

Sorry no pics or sound- but it looks like fun

Gonna loose the laptop in a minute...
But I did hear Di say she is using her iPad which is what I'm typing this on...

So I'm gonna go see if it works through Google on the iPad rather than Tapatalk.

Cheers,

Have a great day,

Well the live streaming was fun, shame we couldn't all share the Pizza. AM tried to wave a prawn in our faces and some other blowin tried to wave something else before Kelsey  :pan him  :thumb:

Will work on some ideas for future gatherings/showoff sessions etc for here.
