Topic: Typical HotTop roast (3 msgs / 165 lines)
1) From: Irene and Lubos Palounek
This is almost a "typical" roasting experience in our HotTop.  Our HotTop
was running too hot at 250.0g of green beans; it seems fine for 2/3 of a
pound or 302.4g of green beans.
At around 4 pm in an 88F Texas afternoon:
Costa Rican Miel
302.4g green -> 260.8 g roasted (-13.75%)
87F sunny afternoon in shade -- did not measure the humidity, I would guess
about 60%
HotTop set to level 4 run "automatically (not extended)
Roasting time 17:23
Roasted bean color about 55;
just before the second crack, I guess
Voltage at the outlet 120.0V loaded/122.7 V unloaded - (that means when the
HotTop heater is on or off)
The HotTop beeped 4:07 after being turned ON. Beans in at 4:17
The following times counted from the "Beans In" time.
15:00 very First Crack;
15:40 rolling first crack;
16:40 First Crack ends;
about 15:50 HotTop beeps signaling the roast will end soon;
17:23 beans automatically pouring out into the cooling tray.

I really appreciate your HotTOp roasting posts-if you can get a roast to go
17 minutes in that Tejas heat-ought to work in WI.  I am assuming the
resultant brew is very good.  Like Chris Beck-have the plastic at the
ready-don't need no Northbrook IL UL Lab certification.
thanks a bunch
