Maybe post in the Behmor section. Behmor users can see it. The SHOUTBOX post will be hidden in a few days.

Uniformity in Roast
General question to all of you on how to best achieve uniformity in bean color? I don't have any major melange issues but minor variations in color.

Specifically, I roast on a FB roaster. Any FB pros out there solved this? I think I remember some info coming out thaty drum roasters achieve uniformity better due to the contact with the drum surface or something like that?
I was having circulation issues when I first built mine. I was having a small amount of beans getting trapped at the inlet. That was due to having too flat of a bottom of my RC. Since then I’ve added a funnel with steeper sides and that seems to have alleviated my issue. I’ve never roasted on a drum, but I get a pretty consistent roast. You create an interesting thing for me to keep an eye out next time I buy some drum roasted beans.
Funny enough I have never had circulation issues. I get really great sprouting and bean movement in my RC. Like I said, I have very little variation in color but would love to know how/if possible to increase uniformity.
This more a question than an answer.
Would not the variation of ripeness and processing be a root cause for any variations that roasting do not cause?
I cannot imagine a mill only releasing beans at an even condition. There must be variations in sorting that are well within parameters of acceptance.

Like I said, just asking. I do not care that much if I am happy with the brew. That is just me.

Interesting point!

Especially considering I see the most variation from East African natural processed beans. For my Central/South Americans the beans are always uniform at the end of the roast.

Picking/Sorting/Processing may be a potential culprit here.

I don't care either really and the people I give my coffee to never mention anything. Just one of those situations in which I see the defects and shortcomings of the end product even if others don't
I understand your point. I am not disputing it. I notice the same things, just do not do anything about.
Thank you for asking the obvious question.
