My first roasting effort with the Behmor 1600 appears to be a failure, bean=
s are under roasted, still have more than half the white film on and none h=
ave expanded.  I had wanted to roast only a quarter of a pound as the ins=
tructions suggest but I could not find my scales to weight them so I went a=
head and roasted a full pound from the samples that came with the Behmor.=
  I selected roast P2 and while it looked to me like it was not roasted e=
nough I added 30 seconds to the full time but was afraid to add more.  Wh=
en my wife came home I asked about the scales I could not find, they were g=
reat crystal digital scales and she told me that I broke it when I was sick=
 and uncontrollable in my behavior before I got put into the hospital.
The only coffee I have roasted now is this under roasted Kenya AB Auction L=
ot #786 Rukira.  I don't think it would be a good idea to try to roast it=
 more with this roaster so I would like to try to roast another pound but I=
 need some advice before I am willing to take that on.  Any suggestions o=
n how to get a complete roast for a pound with the Behmor 1600?
This coffee effort was the worst part and only failure on the best day I ha=
ve had since I got sick.
I am willing to try something else but I don't have any scales to weight th=
e coffee.  Please give me an idea!
