Newbie here looking for tips
Syncopadence
Hey everyone, new roaster here. I read through the roasting 101 basics and found some useful info, but I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for my equipment. I'm using a ceramic roaster that you use on the stove, and was wondering if there are any tips/general guidance you might have? I use this on my gas stovetop, so should I be adjusting my flame throughout the process?
Thanks in advance for any help, and I apologize if this info is already posted somewhere.

Welcome! Can you post a picture or a link to the roaster you're using? That would be helpful for receiving feedback, advice, tips, etc.

Continuous agitation is the key of success.
Try various flame settings until you hear cracks (like popcorn) in the 7-10 minutes ballpark.
Before cracks start probably you should lower the flame a bit, but is difficult to predict exactly how much, this is too much a senzorial experience...

In general, and others may correct me if I am incorrect...

You want a steady semi-rapid increase in temp ( 300-350 ) up until first crack and this process should consume 6-7 minutes. At first crack you want the temp to rise but not as fast and you want to extend the first crack event about 2 minutes. If you want to go a bit further to second crack and beyond you then want a more rapid rise in temp. If in second crack I typically do not let that event go more than 10 seconds or so then dump those beans and cool them to 100 degrees within a 4 minute period.

Store the beans for off-gasing at least 24 hours and then give them a grind and a pour-over..
