Just curious, why is there a difference between drum and air, and where do you make your adjustments between the two?
Looks like you did a shorter drying phase with air, and that's all. Is it that way for most beans?

On my PID iRoast, I did 300 @ 5 minutes, 410 @9 min, 435 @13min.
I'll have to adjust to try your profile, and taste the diffs.

Oh, I can. I can :D

Lovin' the PID. I've now figured out how to set up 4 separate 8 stage profiles on it.
