  • my first crack

    folks, just received my Behmor 1600, burnt it in, added 300gram of peru, set it for 1 P4 C. With 8.30 remaining on the clock a rolling first crack occurred for 1.30 minutes, opened the door and smoke came pouring out, hit the cool button as the beans were dark and gleaming. Now not sure what happened as i expected a second crack but wasnt game enough to continue. ur thoughts appreciated.

    Its always hard to tell whats really going on because we have no idea of how truly the image represents what you are seeing, but judging from what I can see of the card, you have gone wayyyyy past 2nd crack!

    Those beans look like good fertiliser and time to try again, either more beans or different profile.

      Hi lumenary

      Why did you use P4? They do look very black and shiny but perhaps not as bad as they could be (i.e. charcoal black).

      Let them rest and try them in about 4 days time.

      Id suggest you use the P2C setting and maybe increase the bean size to 330g.

            Re: my first crack

            Im guessing you might have hit rolling second crack at -8.30. I did something very similar on my first roast (not on a Behmor). Is there oil developing on the beans?

                Oh well, I tried using mine as a Possum deterent....didnt work. I did try one cup of mine (using my Hario hand grinder....easier to clean). Wasnt undrinkable but I didnt chase my losses....

                  Re: my first crack

                  yeah that amount of oil would only be there once a roast goes too far

                  try shortening roast time to see how it goes
                  dont worry about wasting beans

                  the 2kg given is meant for that purpose. keep going at it and you will eventually get it

                      Re: my first crack

                      hmm
                      that looks more like start of rolling first crack to me
                      IMHO
                      do you have the timing of when it hit R2C? and would you have a temp logger by any chance?

                          I think that was 1C you heard, what time was on the display when you hit cool?

                            ok folks am getting the drift of things, set up another 300g on 1P2C. at 13.50 left the turbo kicked in for a minute.1st crack started at 11.20 to go till 10.00 to go. 2C kicked in immediately. hit the cooler and all ended pretty well, now to try and upload an image...

                              that looks like a mighty fine roast
                              looks about first snaps of 2C
                              id say a CS9/10

                              youre getting the hang of things
                              when i first started i had trouble recognising the difference of 1C and 2C, but after quite a few roasts youll get the hang of things

                              I do find having a temp probe helps me judge when to anticipate 1C and 2C too
