    Congrats on your maiden roast lemoo. :)

    Looks like C8 or 9, but it looks like a great roast from where i see.

    The Peru is a great bean to learn on.

    Trust you have plenty of beans to play with. :D

    Re: First Behmor Roast

    i also had my first roast monday 9th evening with these Peru: 430G, P1,D ( extending the time to max 22.30 )and got a similar result although Bemor timed out before i heard the 2nd crack, so i wasnt sure if they were under-done.

    Anyway first taste this morning ( 2.5 days after roast) and they were fabulous!

    I also have done last night a smaller batch 350 g starting weight and got to 2nd crack and a cs9+ colour so interesting to compare the flavour of them.

    seems to me you cant really go past 350g if you want the option of a really dark roast with these beans.

    Re: First Behmor Roast

    hmm just noticed something interesting

    was putting a roast through P2/B on the behmor

    according to the manual it says that p2 ramps up to 100% power to about 60% of the time and then drops the power back for about 30% of time

    and for the last 10% of time ramps power back up to 100%

    does this mean that the back elements should turn back on?
    I was datalogging the temp change as well and noticed no increase in temperature before the program ended and went into the cooling cycle

    the temperature drop was accurate @ 60% of time in but just didnt seem to increase from there and just slowly coasted to lower temps all the way to the end?

    Re: First Behmor Roast

    Im new to this roasting caper but pretty sure it is meant to be that way: i suspect there is a lower temp at which the main element re-ignites. ( maybe less than 100C as it measures by its thermistor on the outside of the oven wall.).

    The basic problem seems to be getting to second crack with 400+ grams.

    The answer is to use less beans- max 350g i reckon, plus extend the time to max available.

    All speculation by me at this stage... no doubt Andy can confirm....
