Topic: Any Success with Behmor Profile 4? (8 msgs / 141 lines)
1) From: Ken Hawes
Hi everybody,
I'm wondering if anyone has had success roasting with P4 on the Behmor?  
What beans have worked best?  Since my wife and I prefer our roasts on 
the darker end of the spectrum, I've been hesitant to try it. 
I roast 1/2 lb of beans at the 1 lb setting and come close to maxing out 
the time on P2 & P3 - usually yielding a nice Vienna roast.  Voltage 
does not seem to be an issue, as the heat lamps cycle on and off at the 
highest settings.
Any success stories out there?  Thanks for your input.

Why haven't you tried the P-1 @ 1Lb with a 1/2LB of beans and then the 
time to max after START?  Do not select any A,B,C,D just take the default.
P-2 is difficult to get to line up with the 1st crack.  The purpose is 
to have the power drop  as 1st crack ends so as to extend the time 
between first and second.

I like P4 better than either P3 or P5.   Don't be hesitant; just do it!  Any
type of learning costs something, time, money, coffee beans...

p4 is my default.
p4, B, start, and about 6 or 8 +'s or more depending on bean density
and ambient temps.
i usually just let 2nd's get started and go for cool. also depends on
the bean and what i want. good for kona or centrals. given up on
chaffy ethiopians in the b16 because the chaff always seems to end up
smoking & smoldering....
ethiopian and other hi chaffs go straight to the rk.
