Topic: FR8 roasting too fast (3 msgs / 60 lines)
1) From: michael holland
I went the extension cord route - adding 75' between the roaster and outlet
has slowed a 3 minute C+ to about 5mins. Starting in a cold roaster gives a
FC in about the 8 minute time max on the dial. Later roasts go a little bit
faster since I can't wait 20 minutes between loads of 1/4 cup (30 or so
grams).
There is usually some chaff left behind in the chamber but most gets caught
in the collector. The leftover trace doesn't seem to hurt anything.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
when I used a fresh roast, I used 2 methods to slow it down.
Each min. I would go to cool for 10sec and then back to heat.
The other method was when first got going a bit, I'd cut the machine off =
and let it coast thru first, then back on to the first snaps of 2nd =
(Full city)Then off and let it coast to the desired finish. for C+ let =
1st get going good then cut it off and cost to finish. Be prepaied for =
smoke when you cut it back on.

There is no need to "wait 20 minutes between loads". When I roasted multiple
roasts, I let it complete the cooling cycle, dumped the beans and turned it
back on in the Cool cycle to complete another one, empty.
I have had no trouble cooling the machine using double or multiple Cool
cycles.
