Topic: V8 Behmor (8 msgs / 161 lines)
1) From: Gary T
I just got a Behmor not too long ago and have put about ten roasts under its belt.  Has anyone else notices a v8 juice and/or a slight plastic-y scent to the roast when brewing?  I keep looking around in the roaster to see if I missed a piece of plastic that is burning in the roaster that the beans are absorbing as they roast.  Let me know! -Gary

No smell in mine.  But look at the bright side: you won't have to
lament what you "coulda had" :-)

That's interesting.
I do notice a difference in the aroma of roasted beans between my behmor  
and my RK grill.
But not plasticy or v8 juice, it is a little less pleasant and I just  
attributed that to my imagination.
Hmm... I will have to try and quantify the difference in it. That means I  
need to place another large order because I'm down to small amounts of  
several beans!

I know I smelled a hot plastic smell from my Behmor when it was new.
But I never sensed it in the coffee. My Behmor is just over a year old
now, and I haven't smelled it in quite awhile.

5) From: Luis Zaman
I noticed some tape used to package it up was still left on the cover  
when I was roasting. I didn't smell it, or notice any difference in  
the cup. It seems this could contribute to some smell though, if the  
tape happened to be burning at any point. However, this was on the  
outside of the roaster, so I don't think it would be changing the  
flavor at all.
I did have one batch smell sort of funky, but when emptying it I found  
a bean from a previous batch that had really really burt up. The next  
batch was perfectly fine.

I have been using one for a couple weeks now. It had kind of a new smell but
has since went away. What are you keeping the finished product in? I find
glass jars are not so good?
Can anyone suggest a good priced bean that makes a really good dark roast?

interesting this is brought up.  the other day i was roasting a few batches and a few min into one roast i smelled burnt plastic and looked around frantically to see if i left something on top the behmor.  saw nothing and figured maybe it was the beans i was using or the fact that it was the 3rd roast that morning and the residual heat had something to do with it.  another thought based on what was said before: after roasting i use plastic cereal bowls to sort and pour my coffee into bags.  maybe it was the bowl although i would have noticed scorches on the bottom of the bowl.  but yes it seems i periodically will smell an intense heat smell that i could see someone saying smells like plastic.

Do you suppose it is the smoke suppressor element burning up the smoke?
