Does it happen with all threads or certain one?

Anyone else have issues seeing the whole window of a thread when accessing from a mobile phone? Any fixes?

Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

1C temp, ramping vs drop?

Hi!

There's a current thread going on, did not want to hijack it. Specifically, Jack's post here.

Here it is quoted, with bold emphasis mine on what caught my eye:

I initially set turbo oven heater power to get a rate of rise that will give me 4-5 minutes to 300F for drying. Once I am at 300F and the beans are yellow, I increase power (speed up) to get to 1C fast. Usually takes about 3-4 minutes. Then I reduce to keep the roast from running away. With the unheated garage, it is taking longer for me. I never allow ET to go above 500F or it will run away.


Because I'm a total newbie to this, I've been researching the theory and process of roasting, etc. I recall reading somewhere (forget where) that after first crack, there's a drop in temperature at the bean level, and one does not want that so you have to compensate by bumping the heat up, which appears to be different from Jack's process. Unless he maintain a high temp, but is working to slow down the rate of increase?

Thank you,
jano

Hi Jano,

I do keep the temperature high but reduce power to get a smaller rate of rise. I don't see the decrease in BT you mentioned. The BT is always rising, but at a lower rate toward the end. I like lighter roasts and rarely go all the way to second crack. This seems to work for me, lets me control the roast level better.

I may also be all wrong here too, but it works for me. Experimenting is part of the fun of roasting.

Basically you want the bean temperature rising throughout the roast and never falling. In my roaster air temp is usually 150F to 200F higher than bean temp.

Often I'll bump the heat around 370F-390F to give a little energy to first crack, then back off the heat so that the roast doesn't progress from first crack to second crack quickly. 2 minutes minimum to second crack and 4 or 5 min is much better. Once I get out of first crack I want the beans temp going up as slowly as possible/practical.
