So far I’ve managed to go through about 25 roasts (still a newbie) and I’m struggling with getting homogeneous results in terms of bean roasting level.
As with many others, I’m trying to stick with Rao’s method of a smooth declining ROR throughout my roasts.
However, it seems that I always have to do some picking at the end of my roasts to remove the outliers. I’ve tried playing around with the Drum speed a bit, but my results are always pretty much the same.
Does this seem out of the ordinary? Any suggestions to help me achieve better results?
FWIW, I’ve been using the I-ROR as a reference for my declining ROR.
