As already mentioned humidity difference could be a factor in your varying
roast times, assuming same green and batch size. Just as likely or more of a
factor could be a voltage difference. Higher voltage under load equaling
faster roast time. Voltage from the same outlet can even often vary time of
day depending on other usage, not just in your house but entire main
incoming neighborhood feed. Solution to maintaining and controlling voltage
is a variac.

	Now my second question, I own a Fresh Roast Plus 8 coffee roaster.
I live in the Florida Panhandle and have been roasting outside, until last
week.  I decided to try roasting inside, what I found was that roasting
inside cut my roast time by 2 minutes.  At first I thought it was an airflow
problem so I placed the Fresh Roast on a wire baking rack to get more air
underneath.  The roast time is still 2 minutes shorter inside than outside.
Has anyone ever had this problem?  If so, what kind of a solution did you
come up with.  I thought it might be the temperature difference from inside
and outside, but the difference has only been about 5 degrees.
