Finally, have Artisan/Phidget up and running and in the near future will post my graphs looking for suggestions what I should change. This forum appears more active than all the others so I come to you for advice. thanks, MKane

That wasn't hard to figure how to post a pic. Last phase of roast is a bit on the long side though.

Hi Mike! I've noticed the need to hit the gas as the RoR is coming up after turnaround to avoid that quick drop after the RoR peak. I subscribe right now to the Scott Rao commandments, so these tips are consistent with that approach. I've also found that depending on the bean I sometimes need to also boost the gas a little after 1C after having come down on it throughout the roast.

Turnaround seems kind of high for your low charge temperature. I'm wondering if that is because you have a very small charge? Might be helpful to include your charge weight in your profiles (under roast properties).

I know you've got a lot going on with learning a new roaster and Artisan (presumed) but when you get a chance, I've found adding event buttons to track gas settings and fan or damper settings is really helpful.

Do you have the damper? IS this your first roaster, or what are you used to?
LMWDP #581 .......... May your roasts, grinds, and pulls be the best!

Thanks for the reply Tonefish. I did the above roast before I saw your post. Charge weight is 114g. Thanks. I'll stand on it next time.
