KALDI Information Needed

Although the Centers are not the most friendly units. If you can get the probes only and use phidgets that is an easier way to go.

Initial gas setting on smaller roasters? (Huky Kaldi etc)

No problem - you may have a much smaller charge weight than my 540grams in an MCR 540. That may be why you hit these events so quickly. If you are learning, I recommend Steve's 80% rule and stick to that for while.

Initial gas setting on smaller roasters? (Huky Kaldi etc)

Lolol. Maybe not 30 seconds but damn fast for sure. Looking at my graph I am hitting peak ROR about 50sec -1min after TP. My Kaldi is rated at 350g, and I am charging 300g, so like 85% of rated capacity. I have considered going right up to 350 to try and lower my TP and increase time to 300...

Kinu ‘Click Feeling’ a good thing??

The owner manuals on the Kinu website say yes for the Phoenix and no for the Simplicity. It would be nice to have a comparison table for those two grinders and the Classic.

Kinu ‘Click Feeling’ a good thing??

Well yes, according to their own spec comparison.. But evidently at least the Phoenix produces a clicking sound too - seems to me they've got two different sources for the sound if that makes sense.

The Alicorn: Achieving Precision Alignment with the Baratza Forté/Vario

There is a 3D print file to make the spacers for that gap. You should not and do not have to live with it. You're so close. Have a quick read of this for some motivation (It's just a single post): "Baratza Vario Super Alignment owner experience" -Peter

Kinu ‘Click Feeling’ a good thing??

My Traveler has the "clicks". Funny thing is, I never noticed until I listened carefully just now after seeing this thread. :D

Initial gas setting on smaller roasters? (Huky Kaldi etc)

Don't take our specific gas settings as gospel! Otherwise you may end up hitting FC in 30 seconds on your machine! :D But seriously, I'd also recommend to watch your max RoR and when it occurs on on delta BT curve. If you are hitting 40-45 F/min within a minute or so of TP, that can be an indicator of...
