The heat input is fixed and determined by the applied voltage.  You can 
vary the ramp however by increasing or decreasing the weight of beans in 
any given roast for a fixed heat input.  The chamber shuts off the heat 
at 480 or so.  At a fixed heat input a larger weight of beans will take 
longer to roast.

We rest the coffees a minimum of 5 days, we have the machine grinder set up right, Etc.  The beans have been taken care of but the are a little old 12-15 months. Today I received a new, smaller order of beans.  I have about 5 pounds or dreg beans remaining. Some of which I want to use to refine my roasting. I suspect I need a better roasting location. I suspect that the plug is under powered. I have already talked to my electrician about this one.  I had considered ordering a commercial roaster but that is just cost prohibitive at this point.
