My HotTop profile
I copied this from another thread, may have put it in the wrong place.
Any tips???

After running this roaster for a year and a half, I have saved this profile.

I set max temp to 428 & time to 25:00.
It pre-heats and starts timer at 167 degrees.
It runs 100% heat, 0% fan.
I dump 225 grams (8 oz, so I use pounds of beans without odd leftovers) at 375 degrees. Time is @ 20:40 - 20:30.
At 19:30, 18:30, & 17;30 I turn the fan on 25% for 30 seconds to evacuate humidity.
At 16 minutes, I lower to 60% heat and turn fan to 25% for the rest of the roast. 16 is 'usually' where the BMT is 310 signalling dry beans.
(This varies, I suppose by moisture content of beans)
At 13 minutes, I raise to 80% heat. About 1 - 1 1/2 minutes before 1C.
1C is around 11:30, but this varies alot.
At 10 I lower heat to 30%. This is close to where the BMT and oven temps are equal. (413-415 degrees)
I tried 20% but the heat seemed too low. More heat, and the machine wanted to eject (428 oven temp) before the roast was done.

I eject when my BMT is where I want. Usually 445 about 10-15 seconds into 2C. Sometimes i eject at 435/440. Time varies, but around 8:15.

My time & rate of rise is:
About 4 1/2 minutes -- 27.1 degrees p/min to DRY.
About 4 1/2 minutes -- 17.3 degrees p/min to 1C.
About 3 3/4 minutes -- 12 degrees p/min to EJECT.

I could chart this, and post the photo.

I would like to see this as a graph so I can try to emulate it with my setup.
I don't have a graph.
