any one know if this new panel will allow us to do a full preheat to get the behmor up to the desired temp before starting the roast?

Well, most of us just run the 1600 for a minute and a half with an empty basket. Stop, extricate said basket, open and dump beans in. re-insert basket with chaff tray..and go.

That said, I'm not sure these's an option to pause the machine at say 3-4 minutes countdown, attach the basket with beans in, add chaff tray without losing half the heat anyway. As it is now, once the machine reaches a certain temperature, stopping and starting doesn't work, until the machine cools to a predesigned inside temperature.
Basically, it's really just a matter of semantics. I just subtract (in my mind) about 2 minutes of my roast time to first. Say my 14 oz roast takes 12 minutes to first. In actuality, without  a 275f starting temperature as would be a sample roaster or such, I just take 2 minutes off the time to 1st crack. Thus, I just say 10 minutes. As long as I log this consistently, It's all relative, and now it's a matter how large a "charge" per roast, profile, etc.

Most important is that for ANY electric roaster, you have a good 117-120+ voltage at the plug when starting the roast. Eschew an extension cord.
I can get very fine roasts from city to FC + in under 15 minutes.
Sure going to be fun to have even more options.

Attached is a basic guide for the boards functions that have been added.. the original program still remains the same and in fact when in manual mode runs simultaneously with the manual so you can toggle back to auto at any point with no ill effect. I myself am still vetting the new program and found when I go manual (P5) I bump drum speed (D) and when 1C begins I go to P1, drop motor speed (D again) because power then goes completely off, then I incrementally add power up if I want.

The reason I've gone P1 is that is 0/ zero power to the elements and it reacts slightly quicker than P2-P4 because of refresh attributes of any appliance MCU which has some lag time.

Special thanks to Norm for putting the guide together for me so I could pass it along to everyone here..

Thanks, Joe! Looking forward to swapping one in when they're available.

BTW, the photo attachment isn't readable. Is the pdf version downloadable from your website yet?

Let's see if imgur is allowed, for a PNG file of the instructions:

This is my third use of imgur, so I guess you'll have to copy the image and perhaps save or print it.


Edit:  for updated URL and a direct link to it.

Hi Joe,

For a few years now .txt, .zip, .pdf, .doc attachments have been disabled, & only .jpg, .gif are allowed.
This was done due to a/the Coffeegeek website overhaul & redesign promised a number of years ago, but it never/hasn't happened as of yet..

All you can do is put a link to the pdf document on the Coffeegeek forums for now.
