I've been having alot of trouble getting good flavors from my turbo roaster roasts. I have the 1 inch spacer and a GG oven. I roast 10oz at a time, get to first crack around 10 minutes and second around 15 minutes. My coffee just taste bad 8( I usually set the dial at 400 degrees. The roast appear even.
What roast profiles do you suggest? is 15 minutes to quick of a roast for 10ounces?
I try to mimic other roast profiles that I have read about. Here is my general approach: 5 mins drying time at 300F each min after raise temp about 20F which gets me to first crack at about 9 1/2 mins. at that point I try to stretch out the roast so drop the temp a bit. I like my roasts at C, C+ so try to coax 2- 2 1/2 mins before I drop them
Here are the MET temps during two recent roasts: mins 1-5: 300F min 6: 329 min 7: 356 min 8: 383 min 9: 401 Roast 1 FC at 9:48 drop at 11:48
Roast 2 FC at 9:49 drop at 13:48 - start of second crack
hope this helps- I love the SC/TO I do think you have some control over the temp (I have the newer supentown digital convection top which replaced my older analog one) jim
