Re: Roasting 1lb with the new 1600 control panel

... tried raising the front of the roaster up 1 - 1½ inches? This is a classic "trick" in our bag of cheats, tricks and lies to make the Behmor yield a good roast. That more or less matches at least one obvious effect of the higher speed and gets the bean mass a little more in front of ...

Re: Behmor tips

Pressing the P1 button during a roast will display the sidewall sensor (with the old panel). The units are arbitrary, and it's frankly not of great value IMO... well, maybe when something goes wrong, if you're familiar with its normal readings. There's another sensor, in the exhaust path IIRC, that'...

Re: Behmor tips

The new higher drum speed in the 1600-Plus will achieve about the same thing as tilting the roaster as it keeps the beans higher up at the back of the drum where the heating elements are. I'm currently roasting my Africans using 1/2# on 1# P3 C with a manual stop/cooling and doing very well. I also ...

Roasting 1lb with the new 1600 control panel

I'm considering the panel upgrade for my 1yr old behmor 1600. My one complaint about the roaster is the long roast times for a full 1 pound of coffee. I've always thought the coffee was a bit flat and possibly "baked". I generally roast ...

Is there a per coffee list of 1600+ baseline profiles?

Hi, Is there a way to know, for every coffee you can buy on SM, what's a good starter curve on the behmor 1600+? Especially now that we have better control/temps, and we're most likely logging the curves with some software or other, I can't seem to find anything other than ...

"Ideal" roast

With about 60 Behmor roasts and 20 kinds of beans under my belt, I am playing with different levels of roasts and ways to get there. Obviously there is a continuum from green bean to charcoal chunk, and I have used workarounds for ...

Re: Behmor drum speed

No problem and again my fault for having discussed it in a way that could lead to contusion. I just want to make sure it is beneficial and serves a good purpose versus just selling an add on.

Re: Behmor drum speed

Of course you may, Joe - it was a casual question that just arose while thinking about Byron's advance glimpse of what they were seeing. I didn't recall that the different motor was only being tested, but maybe that just didn't stick; I do recall at least a suggestion that it might be optional. Than...

Re: Behmor drum speed

If I may.. One of the goals of power control was to stretch times between 1C and 2C.. besides power, motor speed can play a role.. What I do is in manual program D for 16 rpm, when 1C starts, Press C to reset time.. After about 20 seconds and 1C is getting a bit of momentum I press P1 (no power) and...
