Topic: Hearthware Precision Question (7 msgs / 178 lines)
1) From: Myron Joshua
What happens if I want to lengthen a roasting time by a couple of minute
once the roaster goes into its cooling cycle? Can I
a.) just bop on the roast button or should I
b) unplug the plug and then start the roast process or must I
c.) wait for the cooling cycle to finish??
Best, Myron

Yes, you can hit the roast button again.  I permanently lengthen the roast
by installing a smaller washer under the bean dispersion rod in the carafe.

Dan, could you explain your modification a bit more.
1. How does your method differ from turning up the dial. (Does the dial
control temp, time or both?)
2. Doesn't the washer interfere with proper movement of the beans?
3. How does the washer effect the time of the roast (or does it just allow
you to use a higher setting on the dial??)
i was afraid that hitting the roast button a second time (before finishing
its cycle) might drive the roaster crazy. Thx for the input.

Myron,  Making the washer smaller makes the vent larger admitting more air.
Increased air means decrease temperature. What happens is that this lowers
the temperature ramp.  It takes longer to get to the same temperature.  A 9m
roast now takes 12m.  I've found the results are mellower, but without
decreasing the origin flavors.  After modification, you will have to use
higher settings on the dial.  A 6 will become a 9, or thereabouts.  If you
don't like it you can always put the original washer back in.  I use a 1/2"
washer that half covers the first row of holes.  Dan

Pop the roast button again-never ever unplug the beast when it is hot-will
fry the innards.

You can just hit the roast button again, but you've got to be very 
quick about it. I use a five-second cool cycle near the beginning of 
first crack, and another 1'30" later to extend some roasts for 
espresso. With the HWP, a little cooling goes a long way.
Best,
