Thanks to everyone who has replied so far-it is appreciated, I am an over-thinker, and probably an under-do-er, which can be an evil and frustrating combo. That said....
I have only ever had fluid bed roasters- the Gene Cafe (on my second one already, as the original one from 2006 gave up the ghost). The first one was knob-twiddled more than the second one. I tend to stick to the same beans, having learned that try quick, rebuy quicker, so you dont miss out on beans you really like. I write a time and a temp on the plastic bags, and set the Gene for those settings, and let it go. I load 300-320g charges, and do not preheat. I set the timer on my phone for 2-3 minutes ahead of the scheduled completion time, then leave Gene to do his business until the phone reminds me to supervise the final approach and landing. (I roast in my house's basement, and simply run a metal flexi dryer vent-hose out an open window-- easy peasey! My kitchen is small, and the 'vent hood' is outside ventred, but is built into a microwave, so not a real powerhouse. I am not likely to try to set up a gass roaster on my kitchen stove-top.
I sometimes do 2 or 3 roasts in a row, mostly on weekends, when I have the time, but sometimes do a single roast in the morning or at night after work. I roast for myself, and on ocassion, for a friend, or for the shared drip machine at work (i have my own super-auto machine on my desk there). So, I am looking for a roaster that will allow me the same or better roast quality, with at least double the batch capacity. I enjoy roasting, but more for the result than for the ritual. I'm 61, so once I retire that might change, and would like the roaster I buy now to still be properly functional then as well.
So, given the above (heretical as it may seem), should I just get Behmor and be done with it? Leaning toward that or a Bullet R1, as it would be Gene-like in terms of cord, hose, and go "installation", or would I be missing out on not getting a Huky or BC-1? The Huky I lloked at is from croptocup, who have put together a bundle which comes in at close to the price of the BC-1, and similar to the Bullet.
