Topic: Roasting profile for the Monkey espresso blend? (5 msgs / 78 lines)
1) From: Jim Anable
I finally have a good thermometer for tracking temperature while 
roasting in my dual variac (fan and heater) P1 roaster.
Now, can somebody suggest what I should be aiming for as far as 
temperature vs. time with the Sweet Marias Monkey Blend?

Jim's air roasting advise is usually spot on. Can't say what you "should" do
just what I "would" do with Monkey. From ambient initially hit it hard
backing off heat as approach 150f ~30sec (often dropping voltage down in
high 90's) targeting 200f 1min, 250f 2min, 300f 4min drying stage, tanning
through browning roughly another 4 mintues to 400f @ 8min, backing off heat
a bit now (usually 5v or so drop) going into 1st ~410f my temps, start of
1st to end of roast ~5min even slowish ramp. FWIW ~5min end stage regardless
final degree of roast chosen when for espresso shot targeted roasts. Play
with it!

excel can offer amazing alternatives.. lol
why do you lower the heat for stage 3? the iroast will continue to generate
heat, or are your charts empirical?
