Topic: Just got My Behmor (7 msgs / 187 lines)
1) From: Jim Couch
And have also managed to snag some of the Limoncillo, which I missed out on
last season. Anyone got any behmor profiles that will keep me from wasting
any? I could do it up in my iRoast2 but........
T.I.A.

Hello Jim,
First, congrats on the new roaster!
I think it's safe to say that every Behmor roasts a little different.
If it takes me 10 minutes on P1 to get to First Crack of 8 ounces of a
hypothetical bean, it may take you 9:30 or 10:30 to do the same.
I would work on that sampler pack it came with, and gather some data
in your BehmorThing program.  See how long each bean takes to reach 1C
using the amount of beans you typically want to roast.  See how long
after the start of 1C does 1C seem to end, or 2C seem to start, if you
go that far.
Once you get a few roasts in the Behmor under your belt, you will have
a better feel for the proper profile.
Using P1 for your first few roasts gives you good data if you want to
then use P2.  You really need a feel for where 1C starts and how long
after it starts does 2C start (perhaps) in order to set the roast time
properly for P2 and end the roast.
That is because the first segment of P2 is simply 100% power, like P1.
 If you know that on P1, 1C starts for that bean after 10 minutes, you
would set the time for P2 to be 10 / .6 = 16:40 *.  If you set the
roast time to 16:40, the P2 power drop occurs at 10 minutes, allowing
1 C to be stretched out until you decide to hit Cool.
Have a lot of fun and drink some great coffee with your new Behmor,
Bonnie P.
* On P2, because the power drop occurs after 60% of the programmed
time, take the time to 1C / .6 to calculate the total roast time, if
you want the power drop to happen exactly when 1C starts.

I'm on my second Behmor.  I roast 3-4 lbs every Saturday.
Occasionally 5 lb.  It takes about 40-45min per lb.  19min to 2nd
crack approx..  13 min for cool down. 10 min for cleaning the old and
prep for the next roast.  A few minutes for being a slacker.  Thats
about 3 hrs every weekend roasting.  I used to mess with other, slower
profiles but now I go P1 all the way.  I don't want to spend the time
for anything else.  Works for me.

How do you go about synching your Behmor thing with your Behmor Roaster? Is
it the preheat setting in the BT settings?

I setup 'BT so it's ready for me to hit Start.  I set the Preheat to
None if I'm not using it.  I don't use it for 1/2 lb.  I do use it for
3/4 lb.
I get the roaster ready to go with the roast time set, everything set,
I click Start on the Behmor and then run over to my computer and click
Start on BT.  I don't really need to run very far, the computer is
next to the roaster.
There is a little button on BT to adjust the computer BT time to the
roaster time.
By the way, I just received this list message Monday morning.  I must
be one of those people with occasional list delays.

So, normally, if you don't do a pre-heat, you program your BehmorThing and
your Behmor with the same settings, make sure BehmorThing Preheat profile is
set to No, and then hit start on the Behmor and the BehmorThing at about the
same time.
If you do a Preheat, set the BehmorThing program for either P1 or P3 Preheat
and you'll notice that instead of a Start button, you have a PreHeat
button.  In this case, you hit Start on the Behmor and PreHeat on the
BehmorThing at about the same time.  The way that I do it, when BehmorThing
gets to about two minutes, I hit stop on the Behmor, quickly program the
roast profile and then hit Start again.  When I hit start on the Behmor, I
then hit the Start button on BehmorThing so that it knows the PreHeat is
over and the Roast is on.
Note, that you've already programmed BehmorThing before the preheat with the
roast profile that your going to use after pre-heat, so you just have to let
BehmorThing know when to switch over.  You'll see BehmorThing sliding out
your roast profile by adding time in the pre-heat phase if your watching the
roast graph.
I hope this makes sense.

Hmm, I also didn't get this email until Monday, but didn't know it until
Bonnie pointed it out (Gmail hides those details).
I usually don't bother adjusting the clock between BehmorThing and the
Behmor, it's usually only a few seconds drift.
