[Homeroast] List Traffic at Zero and Roast Time Length

Hi,
1/5 that is technical less than the Behmor can roast on the settings.
I have never really used 1/4 pound, but it is said to be a hard small batch 
to roast, so smaller is probably even harder.
Have you tried opening the door during the end of first crack?

Claus
