Even my "bad" roasts of the Esmeralda are pretty tasty, im drinking one right now(i didnt sell it to Stanza, cause other roasts cupped better).
Any way... Greg, I feel like if i tried that profile on the quest it would be underdeveloped. I haven't gotten good results from quicker finishes. But Ill try it and report back, what are your fan settings?
People have been raving about my Esmeralda roasts, but those folks didn't have my Acatenango. hahaha
Anyway, I think the airflow is the opposite between and Quest and a Diedrich, right? With the Diedrich the fan pulls cool air through the drum so you open to cool, and you close to build heat. So, I start with the airflow off, at around 7 minutes turn airflow all the way to start slowing the roast down and to get rid of some early chaff and some of the moisture in the drum, at 8:30 I lower the burner setting and shut the airflow, then around 9:30 full airflow to remove chaff and really slow the roast.
Don't go by my temps because it appears to me that the Quest temps are about 10 degree higher than mine but I don't have one to compare apples to apples.
