Topic: Temperature profile for beans in SS stovetop roaster (31 lines)
1) From: james McDougal
Here's the link to temperature profile of a roast on Sat. (actually only my
third attempt at roasting)http://picasaweb.google.com/mcdougal.jim/CoffeeBeanTemperatureDuringRoastingI think the probe is in the beans and I'm probably getting good temperature
readings. The gas stove was on medium heat (5 for me).
First crack was about 370 - 400 (8 min) and I think I got second crack about
440 (13 min) aiming for a FC+ roast.
Seems to me that if :
1. I turn down the gas (1/2 mark?) at 1C, I'll extend the time between 1C
and 2C.
2. I add the beans at 300 instead of 400 on the same gas setting I would
extend the time to get to 1C.
3. I lower the gas mark (i.e. 4) - I would lower the slope of the
temperature profile - which is currently 17.6 deg F / minute.
Actually, it appears that between the gas setting and the initial
temperature to add the beans, we can have a lot of control!
Thoughts or criticisms would be welcome.
