Once again, our wood was fairly wet - much of it was more than 30% moisture, so we did not get the yield we would have liked, however the kiln got plenty hot - more than 700 degrees C at times. And we made a lovely batch of biochar, destined for the rabbitry manure pits and ultimately, John's worm bins.

|OK, now how do we get him out of there?|
|All loaded up|

|Quenched with water, time to unload|
|Nice looking biochar|
