Second day with my Bullet – one of those noobs who managed to squeeze in a purchase at Sweet Maria’s – and having a helluva time trying to figure out how to get a recipe trigger to fire. First day was mostly spent running some cheap beans through to season the drum, and did some half-assed attempts while doing that to create & run a recipe, with no success. Today I sat down and tried to figure it out in earnest, but still a bit lost.
The best I can do so far with a recipe is get the Bullet to preheat to the proper temp, and set the power, drum, and fan speed at charge time. Any triggers I’ve tried to set after that fail to fire. Managed to get 4 kilos of Java run through it for all the neighbors who put up with the smoke yesterday while seasoning, but NONE of those batches ever made it to even the second step of the recipe I was fiddling with, beyond the initial charge.
I suspect I’m doing something stupid with the time half of the triggers, but I have no idea what. After 4 kilos, those time and temp values are pretty well dialed in (checked the roast curves on each previous batch every time I reworked it, dialing in those variables).
Anyone have pointers for getting triggers to fire when roasting from a recipe?
