Hi guys, starting to experiment on my Bullet V1.
I’m trying to reproduce other peoples recipe for small batches (200-400gms) (The Bob Hoss for example) as I’d want to roast once a week and experiment roasting profile.
But i have a problem: when following other peoples recipe, my roast run away and burns.
Following exactly Bob recipe, (also cheated and putted more beans just in case (200g)) I got FC around 2min and a complete burnt roast around 6 min… how could Bob do a 9min roast with the exact same parameters yet extend it to 10-11 mins??
I suspect a couple of things (but i also feel stupid and like I’m missing something obvious):
- dirty probe could read a lower temperature than real thus leading to higher preheat than expected?
- different bean origin, size and humidity level… but to a 5min gap extent?
- California dry air (16%) could lead to less cooling for the same airflow?
- My Bullet just heats more than others?
In 4 tries, i couldn’t do a single low dose roast that was drinkable even with a good looking profile (see image below). The profile below looked a bit dark to my taste, smelled ok, yet tasted bad, and smelled burnt when ground.
Any help, tips and tricks would be suuuuuper apreciated!
