Topic: behmor batch size (5 msgs / 84 lines)
1) From: Benjamin VerHage
So I've done about 20 roasts or so on the Behmor so far. I think I've roasted a half pound of beans in all but one roast. I've also found that I start to get tired of drinking the same type of coffee for days in a row, so I wanted to start roasting smaller batches. I've seen some blind taste test results on Coffeegeek that seem to show that the 1/4# batch size isn't the best flavor-wise. Has anyone had the same experience? I may try 1/3# (that way I can get 3 roasts per pound...an even number is always nice). I know experimenting is probably necessary, just wanted to see if anyone has a suggestion or two.

Ben,
I've been very happy with my 1/2 and 2/3 lb batch sizes in the Bahmor (all
done with the machine set to 1 lb).  Above this, I sometimes run out of time
and I've had batches appear inconsistent (some beans darker than others).  I
would expect that roasting 1/3 lb on the 1/2 lb settings would give you
enough time control.  Good luck.

If the roast you're apt to miss, take a gander at this: <

re:Sweet Maria's Behmor coffee roaster profiles.
They have roasted and written some pretty comprehensive descriptions of ways
and means of processing the coffee they sell.

Ray, this should be required reading for anyone roasting on a 
Behmor.  Actually, Tom and company have so much information on their 
site and at our fingertips it amazes me.  I started reading this page 
before I even received the machine, then once it got here I read the 
instructions over a few times, read tips from the list, and made sure 
I read Tom's notes several times.  Not every roast has been perfect, 
but I feel the notes and the directions gave me a leg up on how I 
usually do things - glance at the instructions and just go for 
it.  This is just my experience, others may have different 
experiences.  Whatever, no one can say that Tom and Joe haven't tried 
helping us all roast well with the Behmor.
