Re: Ready to think about a new roaster

... similar. But those are all $1000 plus solutions. Other than that, build a HGBM, a well instrumented and controlled hot air popper, mod your Behmor for continuous heat control and improved thermometry or something similar. You're in that world, of give up batch size, build it yourself or ...

Ready to think about a new roaster

... I started roasting nany years ago over a backyard BBQ burner with an old fashioned whirly blade popcorn popper. A couple of years ago went the Behmor 1600 but it's getting a litte long in the tooth like me and I am contemplating a change. The Behmor for the most part has been ok (After the ...

Re: Tom's Behmor Manual Roasting video...

... were similar to blending dark and light roasts except neither were optimal. I'm curious. Do you know what the two different rpm's are for the Behmor? I'm not sure why you would use the slower speed setting on the Behmor given a choice,but maybe someone that uses both speeds can explain.

Re: Tom's Behmor Manual Roasting video...

Thank you for that. Besides faster being "more even", did you find flavor differences?

Re: Tom's Behmor Manual Roasting video...

I use a home built BBQ roaster, never used a Behmor, but thought I'd add this as they seem to roast in a similar manner. Changing from a 7 rpm motor to a 30 rpm motor did two distinct things. My roasts were much more even and the chaff was drastically ...

Re: Tom's Behmor Manual Roasting video...

Thanks, Ira... And from Tom's video on drum speed. It seems the shop consensus was fast-drum roasted better for brewed. Part of what I am wondering is if the time of starting into fast-drum in the "Manual" video is significant. On the P3 - P4 aspect. I was in part looking to find if a pers...

Re: Tom's Behmor Manual Roasting video...

Fast lets the beans go higher up the back wall of the drum which brings them closer to the elements which should effectively increase the heat.

P3 and P4 reduce the heat which should help keep the beans from racing between first and second crack.

Tom's Behmor Manual Roasting video...

There are a couple of things Tom does in the video not explained. They are things I'd like to understand, if some one would help me with it. 1. Put drum speed in fast mode at 8:10 (3:50 minutes into roast). It seems like Tom was either watching the beans or the time or both or ???, but I don't know ...

Re: Behmor Customer Service

As an update to my previous posts after our Second Brazen failed again relatively soon after replacement we decided on trying a Bonavita which has been great so far. Pre soaks the grounds and makes a great cup of coffee. I really like the Brazen but it seems there are some inherent issues with compo...
