I just roasted 500g of Mocha Mattari -- it's on it's third day of rest. Should be cracking into it tomorrow AM and I can't wait!

more Capacity out of SR 500
Dann-Oh
Does anyone have any tips for getting more beans into a batch per roast? I feel 100g is on the small side of what I want. We seem to be going through the 100g batches in about 3 days. I can only roast on the weekends and Id like to roast larger batches. Any ideas?

100g is about the limit with making batches on that machine. I typically wait about 3-4 hours for the machine to cool and then make another batch. Typically do 3-4 batches over the weekend and that gets me through the week.

Why wait to cool? when on popcorn machine, I was running back to back 3-4 batches...

Supposedly you'll shorten the machine life. I have no way to know if it's true or not. Electing not to take the chance.

The other reason to not roast back to back is you'd have to make a slight adjustment to the roast profiles recipe as the unit would start from a warmer point. I routinely dry my beans for 2 minutes at low temp, before starting the roast process in earnest.

Already preheated my popcorn machine, never started the very first roast from environment temperature.
Sure, started with lower temp, about 175C, but not cold. So all roasts were consistent.

AlanAdler does 140 grams in his SR500. He also made a nice mod for the roast chamber that effectively turns the sr500 into a spouting bed: http://coffeegeek...010#594010
A nice mod here that I'm getting ready to try: https://forum.hom...ad_id=4760(Update: Broke my SR500 chamber trying this. Time to order a new one).
