I have been using the 1-P2-B settings for Kona and Jamaica Blue Mountain. On a 20 minute roast right at 9:50 remaining, I get first crack,  and finishing about 2 minutes later. I open the door and let it cool off for about 45 seconds. Second crack seems to never be heard, or once I heard a single crack at around 5:30 remaining. The flavor of the coffee is better than the long P5 settings, but not quite there as I know it should be, I need to cut the time back just a bit to maybe cooling at about 4:30-5:00 remaining. Any thoughts?

I hope someone can give you an answer, I never got Hawaiian to come out in the Behmor with out tasting baked and I gave up pretty quick. In the Hottop I use a high drop in temp to reduce the amount of heat and lengthen the time of the drying phase and want the roast done in less then 16 minutes with 3 minutes from start of first to finish at city+. P5 would seem to get you there with maybe with a smaller batch size to get the roast done quicker.

I think getting to first right around ten minutes is good, What I forgot to mention was my amount of beans, I'm using 7oz per batch. I need to kind of test the time better, say every minute after 1C, The beans seem pretty close at 7 min remaining.

Hi
I can't really help either, I don't have a Behmor

I roast with a modded popper, and I have some Kona and JBM I bought a little while ago, and have not roasted yet.
I was planning to try a slower roast on them, and see how that works.  I found that worked with a softer bean, and figured that these would roast like a soft bean.

BTW, I work by LAX, live in Brentwood.

I am about to roast one of my few 1/2 pound JBM beans. I was wondering why you were using P2 and not P3 which was what Behmor is recommending for JBM? Did you find P3 to be too long to warm up as P5 was?
Thanks for any help

I have used P5, not real happy so I waited till I got more Kona in. JBM in P5 was okay some hits some misses. Just P5 is a long roast. The Hottop was the best for these, since I use Kona and JBM a lot I may go back, I don't know. Since I'm down to 6-7 oz roasts, it begs to wonder why I sold the HT.

Nice, I wish I could walk to a Chin Chin! Love that place.

I just got some Papua NG, very different roast coming from them. I haven't done any on the Behmor, so again hit and miss.

I roast Kona on P5 1lb D, cut the time down to 20min before the roast and add all the rest of the time after the roast has started.  I roast all the island coffees this way.  (Kona, Sumatra, PNG & JBM).  I love how it turns out.  When it's finished roasting and starts to cool, I open the door after 2 min. cooling has passed.

Thanks I am going to try that next. I wasnt happy with the JBM with P3. Are you using 1/2 pound of green beans?

Now I just did a new 6oz batch of Kona, different farm. I'm still on 1-P2-B, I hit 1st right around 9:45 remaining on the 20 minute roast. There is no real second crack that I can hear, so it is what you want it to be. I cool with about 4:45 remaining. I'm going by smell now. The results after 4 days seems good, but  I have a mix of 2 and 4 day bean rest, so a mix of sorts. By Tuesday it should sort itself all out, then I would know better.
