Thanks...another rabbit hole!MaKoMo wrote:I wrote a short post "How close?" on how the numeric similarity measure in Artisan works.
I hear what you are saying in the last graph about RoR vs BT curve, but the discrepancy is due to the beginning of the roast not being aligned. Instead of aligning at drop, what if we align at charge? This would get the profiles off to the same start.
I, for one, currently believe the heat applied to the very beginning of a roast is critical to the subsequent development of that roast. Hitting DE at 3:00 or 3:30 makes a difference in how that roast will develop. In other words, a roast where DE occurs at 3:00 might be fully developed by 7:00 with only 1:10 DTR, whereas a roast that doesn't dry until 3:30 might be underdeveloped with 8:00 total roast time and 1:30 DTR.
I'm just throwing numbers out there, but I am definitely finding a link between high initial RoR/fast dry time and completely developed fast, light roasts.
All that said, I need to play around with this feature for a while.
