    Behmor 1600 with Mac OS High Sierra

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi Everyone,

    I recently bought a Behmor 1600 Plus. I'm now getting started with home roasting and needed some advice on the following:

    - What roasting software and thermocouple do you recommend for use with Mac OS High Sierra?
    - Where do I place the thermocouple?

    I did some research and browsing on this website and I found some of the following software options but I'm unclear on how to select the appropriate one

    1) Roastmaster App
    2) Roastlogger
    3) Artisan

    I really appreciate any advice you all have.

    G'day Stefano,
    I've been looking for the same answers, I actually bought HeatSnob temperature device with my Behmor, only to find it is only good for Windows ��
    I don't really want to buy Windows10/Parrallels/Security to run it on my Macbook, and I briefly tried installing RoastMonitor on my iMac via Win10/Parrallels, but it failed to run, so I left it at that.

    I downloaded Artisan and had a fiddle with it, I haven't tried Roastlogger, but having a lot of apple devices Roastmaster App looked interesting so I bought it.
    I found a iCelsius Probe on ebay (UK), am waiting for it to arrive. But at this stage, RoastMaster is the way I'm going....

    Don't think new, think used.
    Heaps are always being advertised and even some 'refurbished' ones with warranty for not much more than you would have paid for your HeatSnob.

    I've got an old Dell Laptop (12+ years old, using for 8+ years) running XP dedicated to running CS Roast Monitor.
    It cost me next to nothing, batteries are still available as aftermarket items and it has never missed a beat.

    Sure you could buy old, you might get lucky or you may end with junk. Noisy fans, over heating processors, bad hard drive sectors, failing ram, dead batteries, high security risks with redundant Windows OS.

    Well, of course you've got to be smart about where and from whom you buy one; thought that was a given...

    This has also worried me for some time, even though I never connect my roasting notebook to a network and have nothing else on it, I still am worried Putin has a team of hackers working on stealing my roasting notes then entering the Golden Bean with them. Of course if I make it too hard he may send a team with Novichok after me. Glad I am not the only one worried like this.


    Ps Andy says his had a dead battery and just plugs it in. That is what I also do.

    hahaha, funny buggers...
    I may not need to worry, my roaster arrived broken, no reply to email.
    I'm too impatient, so going to try make a hinge....

    Assuming you bought the Behmor from here.....how long did you wait for a reply? Andy is usually like lightning if he's in the 'office'. Did you use the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of the page. I'd hang tough til I hear back.

    For a computer that you would literally just install the roasting software on and then never connect to a network again, risk is pretty low...

    Yes

    7 days

    email, replied to an email they sent me

    I have fixed it, took it apart and made a pin. cut the head of a bolt and put a nylock nut halfway, one end sits on the door hole where the original rivet hinge was and the other end in the hinge slot on the control panel
    Not as ideal as a new door, but at least it does the job.
