    Behmor roasting profiles

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all. I have a question and i was wanting know if anybody else has the same experience. I have a behmor roaster and I have played around roasting now for a while which has had some good coffee outcomes. I have also tried to use the auto roasting profiles and they are not roasting as I would think and as suggested by users in other forum posts. When using Andy's profile of 200g charge ( this time ethiopian on this occasion) , then selecting 200, P1 for a 12 minute timer. I get to 10 seconds remaining and my roast is yellow not even getting to be any shade of brown . I then have to select "C" ( 2 minutes added) 4 times to get to a first crack I have also tried 400, P2 , B for a 20 minute timer. This profile with a 250g roast charge of bean and same again I'm getting to 10 seconds remaining with no brown at all on the beans just the yellow straw/chaff colour.

    Maybe it is just the power supply but I have tried it at various power point and even at the board in my shed for direct supply. I am sure my 240V power setting on the behmor during set up is correct however I am not sure how to double check this. .Just find it curious that many roasters on this forum are having 12 , 14 , 16 minute roast but all my roast unless I hit the beans in manual with P5 all the way from the start are 20 mins plus to get to a dark profile .

    Any suggestions would be great. Like I said I have had some good tasting roasts but all in milk drinks . As a shot they do taste burnt a lot of the time , so would love to understand if its me or why I am having to roast in manual to achieve any dark roast results. I am trying to achieve a dark roast as I find they give more punch in milk drinks.

    Thanks

    Ambient temperature has a lot to do with how long a roast will go for, lower the temperature of the air coming in, the more heat is "lost" in heating the air before it heats the beans.

    Play around with your starting weights (ie: less beans for a darker roast, more beans for a lighter roast) using the same settings.


    As for the other questions, they are all in the manual.

    Top of the manual says:

    Part 1:
    Introduction to the Behmor 1600

    The Behmor 1600 is not intended nor meant to roast coffee to levels known as Vienna, French, and Italian or darker.



    Part IV
    Setting voltage program:

    For 220v countries while pressing program button A insert the power cord’s plug into your power source.Your system display should show 220. Now press Start. The 220 will disappear from the display and youare now ready to perform your next steps.

    For 230v countries while pressing program button B insert the power cord’s plug into your power source.Your system display should show 230. Now press Start. The 230 will disappear from the display and youare now ready to perform your next steps.

    For 240v countries while pressing program button C insert the power cord’s plug into your power source.Your system display should show 240. Now press Start. The 240 will disappear from the display and youare now ready to perform your next steps.

    --------------------------

    Dark roasts without getting BBQ/burnt flavours are tricky to roast in anything. You might want to try not rushing the end of the roast to make it dark, instead roast longer to get to the same point.

    ...but be wary, the difference between dark, really dark and bean ignition is pretty small!

    Hi

    Just did a 400 gr batch Yirga Special Prep last night.
    My prep for every roast is to run the roaster for 75 seconds to preheat. My settings for the Yirga are 400, P2 and C which leads to a 21:30 time setting. I get my first crack even before I have to press Start at the 75% time point. The A temperature then is 200 C. Then I press C and wait for the first sign of second crack to press cool (Every time you press C the clock jumps back to 3:10, just in case you haven't had second crack yet or want to go longer). After 30 seconds in the cooling cycle I usually open the door a bit and after a minute fully. With five minutes still to go everything has cooled down so far that I can stop. The beans at that point are lukewarm. The results so far have been very consistent.

    This does seem a little odd. Even roasting outdoors in Canberra in winter (in ambient temp of around 5C), 400 P2 B will get to second crack before 20 mins are up on a payload of 380g. Though I guess I do intervene and make the roaster go for about 1 minute longer on 100% in winter.

    From the preamble to your post is sounds like you were getting more 'normal' results when overriding the auto profiles from the start. Is this correct?

    Yes thats correct on the override to manual control from the beginning. I'll have a look at the settings Andy when I next plug it in and confirm 240V.I am also going to be more conscious of the longer time after FC to avoid the burnt taste . How long is to long I guess or would it be a better approach to drop the power setting and watch for colour or until the "A" & or "B" temperature drops and as soon as they drop cool the roast at this point? When I say darker roast I mean CS 8, 9, 10 is about the range I try to roast in most of the time. Have never actually burned a batch yet . Roasting in my region shouldnt be to worried by cooler ambient temperatures as it is always above 20*C when roasting year round. I'll try some of these suggested profiles from others that have posted here to see if that helps. No big problem I just was searching for a simple repeatable approach that would be a good general profile for most beans. Obviously there is tweaking from bean to bean which is fine.

    Thanks for all the help so far it will be good to try these profiles and see the differences.
    Cheers

    I've not had experience with the Ethiopians however I've found a straight forward profile to be getting fairly consistent results with central and south Americans, Indian Elephant Hills and Sulawesi Blue.

    No preheat. Either 200g or 400g batches. Select P2 and B. FC is usually not long after the 75% timer safety feature. Once FC starts (several distinct cracks) I hit C for the Rosetta Stone timer, press P3 for 50% power and + button once. I open the door slightly for about 10 sec to let a bit of heat out then let it go right to the end of the cycle. I will occasionally hit Cool a bit earlier if there are initial signs of 2nd Crack.

    I tried this following advice from Andy in a other thread and I haven't had a dud roast in about 10-12 roasts since. Normally roasting late afternoon so ambient temp is low 20s this time of year.

    Prior to this I was always preheating. I've had better results since starting from scratch.

    Just an update for information really. Checked the 240V setting and yes it was correct. So tried a roast yesterday afternoon of 150g of indian elephant Hills AA and used the above mentioned profile 200 , P2 , B , Got to time out and beans just yellow had to hit the "C" for a 2 minute addition to timer 4 x times to get any sort of colour . Approx CS 8 at my best guess. So no real change I can only put it down to a power supply issue unless it is element or something machine based ???Power supply doesnt make sense to me as I live in a home only 6 years ols so I would have though the wiring and all the electrical would be pretty good. We also have a big ass power station in this town so you would think the juice is available in bucket loads!!!!

    Anyway so I then ran another batch of Ethiopian Gambella Sundried 400g load. Profile was 400 , P2 , B for 20mins total then straight to manual and P4-75% for the duration of the roast . Reached first crack after 1 "C" addition but still had 2mins left on the timer . So at first crack hit "C" again then P3 until time out , then cool with door open. Roast looked really uniform so will give it a crack in a day or so to see what it is like. Not a dark roast by my guess probably CS8 again which is all I am looking for really.

    I think the moral is I can only manual roast which is fine I'll just keep fine tuning my profiles and as always I take bulk notes of everything I think is necessary on every roast then taste the results. Auto profiles are just not for me I guess.....

    Thanks all for your input and help .

    Have you carried out the maintenance steps described in maintenance update release 3 at Behmor Manuals and Maintenance Updates – Behmor.
    It mentions that failure to clean dust from the DC and exhaust fans could contribute to longer roast times.

    Also, have you tried using the roaster at someone else's place to see if it is a circuit issue? (I doubt it as I'm guessing that other appliances might also be affected.)

    Removed content originally posted as after re-reading it appears that you have a Behmor Plus model and not the earlier version I posted about.

    I have just received my Behmor 1600 Plus (thanks Andy. Fastway tried to deliver last Wednesday,Oct.10 when I was not home. After a couple of phonecalls from me they delivered today Oct.15.)

    I have just done my first roast with the Behmor. 400g of Peru Ceja de Selva AAA at P3 C. With a loss of 16%. No preheat. Quite a loud first crack.

    It is an even roast but has come out at about CS 7, a little lighter than what I have been doing in my popper. . The test will be in the cup in a few days.

    Barry.

    If you literally just paid for one and are worried why don't you call the office immediately before it ships? (assuming you bought it new from CS) There is every chance Andy wont see a random comment in one of the threads - and forum comments aren't much of a way to get a resolution.

    What email address? Use the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of this page.

    You can actually roast to the depths indicated above (either intentionally or otherwise)....there's just much margin for error if that is your target roast level. You gotta work 30 seconds ahead of what you observe.

    Ok ive done that, so are you telling me you CAN roast Italian style ? I know it’s a darker roast than normal, is it a case of having to roast manually or it just won’t cope with the heat required ?

    It is certainly possible, but you run a larger risk of setting the beans on fire if you over-do it You will also likely end up with quite oily beans. The vendor (i.e. the bloke who bears the warranty / litigation risk) is naturally bound to give you conservative advice. I don't target roasts of that depth, but it happens (particularly when roasting a particular bean for the first time). I'd just chill for a little while and wait for Andy to contact you.

    That's fine, I understand the risk, if the machine catches fire then that'll be my problem.
    I'll wait for Andy's reply.

    No worries. Just double up on the regular cleaning routine as well (particularly around the temp sensors).

    My quote was from the company that builds them and is early in their manual.

    http://www.behmor.com/docs/english_manual.pdf

    As mentioned above, the difference between very dark and beans on fire is small which I assume is the main reason that the manufacturer doesn't recommend going that dark.

    I would recommend that you try roasting a little lighter, the coffee will be better too and far less bitter.

    Maybe you could just by a popcorn popper and play around with roast depths? Your payment wasn't in the bank today so the roaster hasn't shipped, we can refund it if needed

    It's near 11pm, this discussion doesnt need to happen here, I do reply to all contact us queries, usually during business hours... But not all night!

    Have a decaf, I'll get back to you in the morning.

    Ok, all good. As per the manual,
    Roast at your own risk. Fire hazard. Warning! ⚠️
    I’m good with that, my uncle in Melbourne a long time ago was importing green beans and roasting them and selling to restaurants and pizza houses. One day the machine caught fire. That was the end of his roasting days. Now he buys and sells roasted beans.

    Personally I’ve had enough of stale pre-roasted beans and having my request for Dark roast too light. We actually live right across the road from Mountain Top Estate coffee, the Previous manager did a good consistent roast but now it’s hit and miss.

    Australian coffee is super tricky to roast dark, you will be better off creating something to suit using Mexican, Ugandan, Colombian, Brazil or even some of the Robusta coffees we have.
    Good luck and please be careful.

    I have just started using my heat snob today with roast monitor and it is freakin fantastic to use. Easy also for a computer monkey like myself, however I have a question that I'm sure people will answer in a heartbeat but I'll ask anyway. I have saved my roast profiles as both CSV and JPEG and as per Grahams manual tried find them under profiles which is in the CoffeeSnobs folder that is automatically set up when you install the software. But There is no profiles in the folder?? IF i load template or look RML I have the saved roast profiles but thats all. I was mainly just wanting to look at them for a bit of a debrief and study how and what happened during the roast and look at the times and temps a little closer. Can the profiles be found ??If not what do I need to do to find them in the profiles folder??Cheers all

    PS. Thanks heaps GrahamK for the manual and all the posts on here made it really easy even for a muppet like me!! Thanks all

    Hmm that's odd... I'm guessing it must have saved them elsewhere in some other folder... I also save the CSV and JPG, and have made my own specific bean folders in the profiles folder. But not sure where it would have saved... unless do a generic search in C:, either for whatever name you called them, otherwise it just auto-saves them as whatever the date is

    Thanks simonsk8r. I have had a bit of a look but not tried the search idea so I will try that. It's a bit weird but not having used this program before I am still learning . Love roasting with this program though its much much clearer to see whats going on . The difference between the behmor"A" and "B" temp compared to the thermocouple in Andy's position is really big. Loving roasting just a bit more now if thats possible.

    Depends on which Windows version but the current software saves the JPG and CSV files into:

    "My Documents"\CoffeeSnobs\Profiles

    which will have a full path of something like:
    C:\Users\Freddy\Documents\CoffeeSnobs\profiles

    Once upon a time they were in a folder under the actual program, gotcha was that breaks windows rules and some people had permission problems on certain versions.

    The CSV (Comma Separated Value(s)) file contains reported values from the RoastMonitor software in a simple text format. By using the 'Open with' command you can view it in Windows using Notepad, WordPad, Word or any other text viewing/editing software.

    Yep, I use Excel too...
    Much simpler to manipulate the data if one wants to.

    Excel, or another spreadsheet program, would be the default program to open CSV files in windows if they (Excel et al..) are installed. A text reading/editing program is a method of viewing the contents of a CSV file in a non-spreedsheet format.

    Notepad and WordPad are loaded by default on Windows systems when the OS is installed. Excel is a program that is part of the Office suite that you pay for separately from Windows. The information shown by Notepad and Excel is identical, the only difference is the way it is displayed.

    Can highly recommend Libre Open Office, which includes a decent Excel compatible spreadsheet. Will allow you to manipulate/chart the data in what ever form suits you...
