I just finished doing 2 roasts of CR Dota and for the second roast I took the chaff collector off for the cooling cycle. It seemed to cool faster than the first roast and the beans seemed cooler.  Maybe because of the increased air flow it cools quicker.  I didnt keep track of the time or temp, so it could have been wishful thinking on my part, but the beans seemed cooler.  I dont have a temperature probe so I can't be sure.  Has anyone else tried this.

Yes, my standard procedure is to raise the hood and pull the chaff collector
during the cooling cycle.  I always use the "stop" mode (hit the red button
twice) as well to get down to 212F (100C), then dump onto a perforated heavy
cookie sheet over a downdraft fan.  The drum is replaced and the cooling
cycle resumed to get the roaster down to 140F (60C).  Seems to work pretty
well.  It feels like cooling times are shorter with the full procedure but I
haven't tried to measure and compare either.
