Topic: My first real sucessful profile roast! (28 lines)
1) From: Les & Becky
Mike and all you profile roasters!
I finally pulled of a real profile roast.  I had 7 oz of Peruvian beans
left.  This is a bean that I like roasted light, and it was the last of my
stash.  I roasted two roasts of 3.5 oz each.  I used my modified Wear-ever
pumper!  I preheated the chamber to 350 degrees, and I dropped in the beans.
The chamber cooled to 275 degrees and it took one min. 25 sec. to get back
up to 350 degrees.  I held the roast at 350-360 until the 4:30 mark.  I then
increased the temp to 375-380.  I held this temp until the 8:45 mark.  I
then finished off at 415 degrees and shut off the heat at the 11 min.  I
then shut off the heat element and left the blower going for 5 min. and the
beans were cool.  I have some very nice light city beans done in an 11 min.
roast.  Normal time in this heat (80 degrees outside when I roasted)  for
that roast would have been about 5 min. in the Wear-ever.  Now comes the
hard part, waiting until Friday to see if it tastes as good as it looks and
smells.
THANK YOU LIST MATES FOR PUSHING ME TO ANOTHER LEVEL.  I may not stay there
but at least I can say I gave it a try!  With our dry weather and fire
restrictions, roasting over wood will have to wait till fall again.
