Is there a way to look over past preheat charts in RoasTime

Hi there, I was wondering if there is a way to look over past Preheat Charts. If not I think this might be a nice to have with the roast profiles.

Might just be me though :slight_smile:

Iโ€™m curious and a fairly new roaster - so what would be the big benefit of analyzing the preheat charts?

I live in a cold region with drastic seasonal changes and I bet Iโ€™d see differences in preheat time and characteristics throughout the year (as my roaster is in a shed and more susceptible to temp differences than my house)

Yes thats the bulk of it.
Also I was curious if the differences or gap in the bean probe and the IBTS sensors with different roasts had an impact on the roast. I was trying to figure out if longer preheats made a difference and if the bean temp prob would heat up in a pre heat.

Iโ€™m just messing around to try understand the preheat and the effects of it on the roast.

just take screenshots during the preheat phase. hopefully youโ€™re also taking temp and humidity readings as these too affect the process. Enjoy the roasting.

We currently do not store preheat data. We take the last ~4 data points from preheat and put it into the roast, but discard the rest.
