So I was wondering how it works with those who use a variac to slow down =
the
roast by running at a lower voltage.  It seems to me that when you turn d=
own
the voltage, you'd also have to reduce your batch size.
I know that one time I plugged my HIP into an outlet on an extension cord=
plugged into another extension cord, plugged into a three-way outlet exte=
nder
(in other words, a heavily loaded circuit) and the fan could barely move =
the
beans around.  The ones at the outside _never_ got to the middle and stay=
ed
green.
If you're running at low voltage, what batch size do you use?

I'm at 3500 feet (Sierra Vista).  What effect would you expect altitude t=
o
have?  Oh. Water boils at a lower temperature, so it would be driven off
faster.  Is that what you were thinking?

Yes, the baking a cake takes less time thing.  :-)   I know there are 
other variables, but this is a big one.
