Topic: Back to Basics - Starting hot worked! (2 msgs / 41 lines)
1) From: Alex Harvey
Hi
A week or two ago I posted for advice on fixing my beans that were burnt
outside and underdone inside using my SC/TO. I had been roasting starting at
360F and ramping up to 425F as roast progressed.
I reversed this profile and started hot, around 430F according to the turbo
oven, also preheating for around 5-6 minutes before adding beans. As first
crack began I reduced the temperature to 370F ending 3 or 4 minutes after
this as first crack seemed to stop. Although I let the beans get slightly
more done that I wanted I seem to have solved my problem and the coffee is
evenly roasted.
Thanks to those who responded.

Alex,
I'm happy to hear that you have generally solved your problem. Now you
will be able to make smaller adjustments to your general process, and
specific adjustments for specific varieties, in order to get closer
and closer to the results you desire.
