1st try with bread machine and heat gun
bvwelch
Hey Chad, no worries. I learned a lot. And I could tell, in the first 5 minutes, that this would probably be a "baked" situation, but I chose to go all the way to the end (on LOW heat), and took notes (in the interest of science).

I didn't mention it before, but with the new "vertical mod" in place, I did a dry run (no beans) on HIGH heat, and wow, the temp shot up like a rocket -- 450 F in about 80 seconds. So, in the future, with my '555 controller, or just manually switching from HIGH to LOW, I should have great control over the profile.

Also it was a good test of the new "vertical" mod, and the improved TC readings are very encouraging.

Personally, Sumatra seems flat to me anyway, so it may not be too different. We'll see in a few days.

Hi Bill,

The air does heat up in a hurry. But drop a pound or so of beans into the roaster and watch the temperature drop. Mine typically drops to about 120F before it starts to climb back up. Just something to be aware of when timing the roast.

Still, that 555 does promise a lot of control.
