[Homeroast] Fwd: scorched coffee

I almost always set to 473-476 with a pre- heat or back to back roast.  I reach 1C In the 9-11 minute range, this is usually real close to when the air in the drum has just reached 473.  Basically, I am heating full- on from start of roast to 1C.  I dial back the temp about 30 seconds into the crack.

I've dabbled in some profiles with ramps and isothermal holds but usually run a basic heat full throttle and then back off at the top...tastes better to me.

> James & Jeffrey,
> Thanks for the input. I've been worried that dropping it 435 for about 19 minutes might be too low and I would end up with a grassy roast. When you set it for 435 when is 1st crack?
> I've been using this machine for about 5-6 years and its only every so often this happens. I just recently started paying attention to which coffees do this. I have 2 chaff collectors and clean 1 while I use the other swapping them out about every 2 months. I noticed a great deal of chaff, I'll have to check the sweeper. 
> thanks for the help
