Biochar kiln report is a continuation from this story. So if your new to this website read it first to give you some background.

Once upon a time their was a charmaster who liked to experiment with fire. He found himself settled in an idyllic situation where he could work with fire and create biochar. One day however things went pear shaped.

yesterday we ignited the Adam retort biochar kiln and took some temperature samples below is a table showing how it was going.

Well the trouble began when the First shift went for dinner. The second shift started getting false readings from the IR temp scanner and by the time the first shift came back the scanner was no longer being coherent.

Aha it was a flat battery oh well we will seal up the

Adam Retort biochar kiln

and try again tomorrow no biggie. So we set about putting out the fire and sealing the firebox then we sealed each chimney and went of to bed.

The next morning I awoke in horror to the sound of “Holy Cow Pats” look at the kiln lid it is WRONG. I ran down to see what was going on and nearly fell over.

The kiln had ignited all by itself sometime during the night and the intense heat had bent the lid open so it could continue to operate as a big pit fire. Holy cow pats batman.

So the team was assembled and we went to work on battening down the hatches and trying to work out what had went wrong.

Check out these pictures of the Adams retort biochar kiln blowing its lid fellow scientists and send me your thoughts or comment on this post and together we can work out a fix.

I will continue this report on the adam retort biochar kiln in the next post as I like to keep them short and sweet so I don’t loose your attention.

Science and Art at the Castle on the Hill The link to Biochar

I found out about this special talk that was being filmed at the Science Art Research Centre very late but Boy am I glad I made it.
There was a riveting report on how the fundamentals of science particularly Physics was a flawed system and then the correction was presented along with 6 other people from specialized fields explaining how it has changed their endeavours. It was a great night I even got to ask a fundamentally important question about Biochar. I walked away knowing exactly what I am doing is the best choice I have ever made. Thank You to all the very bright Scientists, Artists and Researchers it was a great night.

what was written on my tshirt was Biochar Natures Balls

My Shirt did say Nature Calls but was rewritten into Biochar Natures Balls ... I liked it : )
