Topic: Chamber temps in Behmor (6 msgs / 125 lines)
1) From: Seth Grandeau
I was wondering if anyone had done any simple mods to get useful temperature
in the Behmor.  I was thinking of trying a thermocouple, below the drum and
out of line-of-sight from the heating elements.  If anyone has come up with
something simple, and useful, I'd be interested in trying it.  I'm finding
it harder to hear and distinguish the cracks as I go from 1/2 lb batches up
to 2/3 or 3/4 lb.
Thanks.

I have thought about a probe right through the center axis of the
drum.  This would require though-drilling of the left end drum spindle
and cabinet, possibly some silicone grommets to seal the holes in the
cabinet walls. and a probe to be inserted after mounting the drum.  It
seemed so drastic that it has been thus far only a thought experiment.
I think I will continue to use the Behmor unmodified for a while.
Regards,

Sounds like a fun tinker, but to what end?   With such limited control
that data might be more frustrating than useful.

Mike,
My goal was just having better information about my end-of-roast temp, so I
know when to hit the "Cool" button.  I sometimes get 1st running into 2nd
and it's not always clear to me which crack I'm in.

This is how someone got a temp probe inside the drum:http://coffeegeek.com/forums/coffee/homeroast/333876Eddie

My thought experiment involved mounting a standard oven thermometer inside =
the drum with some safety wire.  It could be read once per revolution (by t=
he fleet-of-eye). I also imagined a more elegant form of thermometer mounte=
d in the same way, but haven't done the requisite search.

Haven't gotten off the Dreaming Board, and I agree that, with the Behmor's =
lack of control, it might only raise one's frustration-level. =

Happy Roasting,
