I sent this from the wrong email address yesterday, maybe this works better!

Subject: Behmor different questions

> Hi,
> I have owned a 240 v Behmor in almost a year. I have not really worked out 
> a opinion on the different profiles.
> I usually roast 270 gram, wich means I roast on the 1 pound setting.
> On p1 this is no issue, but with all the other profiles I understand it 
> makes a difference because the profile is made for 1 pound not just 270 g.
> With Brazil beans and Hawaiian beans I use p3, but with a roast time about 
> 16 to 17 minutes I wonder if this is not really a too long roast question?
> I have started to use a 2 minute preheat on p1, and then ½ pound p3, but 
> the times for the roast is about the same as with 1 pound p3 without 
> preheating.
> I cannot read the display and I had forgotten that the p3 default is C, so 
> one thing I will change is to set it to A wich would make the first 2 
> stages shorter, as I understand what Joe is writing on the Behmor 
> homepage.
> Any experience or views on the p2 profile? some say that the drop in 
> temperature causes problems?
> Finally Joe as the last update to the manual suggests to preheat the 
> roaster without drum or chaff tray for 1 minute, this should in some 
> unexplained way give a better roast. I red it yesterday so I have just 
> started roasting this way.
