[Homeroast] Behmor questions

I agree that dark roasts should not be a problem.

After getting a Behmor, I spent the first half dozen roasts trying NOT to
char the beans.

Subject: Re: [Homeroast] Behmor questions

I've been using a Behmor since Tom started selling them.    NO problem
getting dark roasts.    I roast inside, under a vent hood.    I always
preheat the roaster and chaff tray for 1 minute, add beans  and
restart.   I nearly always roast 8.0 oz. at the 1/2 lb. setting.

I have to be very attentive or I might actually get Char$s.
