Hey Rob,  Do you mind posting a pic of your small 3spd fan setup used during cooling for us Behmor soon to be plus owners?  Any other tips on cooling.  I use a spritzer water spray bottle with a metal wire mesh small basket with handle to cool my popper beans currently.  Any issue with over spraying imparting off flavour if moisture sits on the beans and lid is closed on 1 cup mason jars?  I do 70g batches and they each get their own jar.  How long should I leave uncovered to ensure fully cooled/dry?

Hey Scott,

I'm not Rob, but I happened to be puttering around & read your post so I just though I would post a pic of my 3 speed fan that I use.
I don't put mine on the opened door, but I aim mine from the right hand side of the roaster & blowing crosswise to the left. I do it this way so that the air stream from my hand held 3 way fan isn't fighting the cooling air output from the roasters bean cooling squirrel cage fan.

The air blowing crosswise is more efficient I believe in scavenging & pulling out the hot air. {;-)

Mine is a bit smaller, maybe about 10" in diameter. It's pretty powerful though. Don't get one that rotates, and look for the lightest weight without being all plastic. I've nom problems with my door in the 3 years I've been doing this.
perhaps with the faster spin promised with the new Control panel, the fan might not be necessary.

As mentioned in the manual, it's always good to anticipate ahead a bit as to what roast degree you want, and go to the cool down a wee bit before that, to allow the roast to "coast" those last 30-45 seconds at the start of the cool down.

Mine isn't a big fan, it only looks big with the close up with my webcam. My fan blade diameter is only 5" & to the outside of the fan shroud, it's 8" Rob.

Sorry, I ofFAN make mistakes. ;>D

I forgot to mention, in reference to spritzing the beans, I no longer do so. I read somewhere this generally not good. Can't remember the reason now.
Probably the only thing I read in all my Ken Davids books I nom longer consider. Off topic, but Ken's books are a wonderful resource.

Instead of blowing cooler air into the roasting area I use a cheap 2nd hand Hoover vacuum cleaner to suck the hot air out. I hold the hose close to the rotating basket during the cooling cycle. This gets rid of chaff too.

 
I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

I do the same with my shop vac. I also take a leaf blower to the inside of my Behmor after cleaning out the chaff. It allows the walls to cool quicker and I can do back to back roast without having to wait 1/2 hr.

This is amazing. With one fell swoop, Joe is getting rid of the number one obstacle/complaint/annoyance people have registered over time about the Behmor, while still leaving the original programs that many love in place.

It makes me wonder what the manufacturers of other roasters that we needn't name are thinking at this point. The new manual mode on the Behmor, combined with its standout capacity and price point, could put a real dent in other roaster manufacturers' business, and thus potentially be a game changer.

Absolutely cannot wait.


(By the by, I open the door and use a blow dryer on Cool one minute after the Behmor's cooling starts. I too blow the air in diagonally rather than straight on; otherwise the blow dryer's air gets hot because of the intake of hot air from the roaster. And I've found that I don't need to do it more than about 3 minutes in order to bring the temps down pretty quickly, so I'm not standing there as my wrists get sore. And true confession: I love cleaning up chaff. Does that make me weird?)
