Roasting Profiles – A Comprehensive Tutorial

Roasting Profiles – A Comprehensive Tutorial

In this comprehensive screencast, we take a detailed look at roasting profiles.

Clocking in at over 23 minutes, it really earns the title of “comprehensive”. We move fast, though, covering the function, use and flexibility of profiles, as well as the ways they can really help improve your roasts, and speed your workflow in Roastmaster. We also look at some real-world examples of profiles to help you get an idea of how to implement them in your own workflow.

Be on the lookout for a condensed, “Cliff Notes” version of this screencast, where we’ll glaze over the finer points for those anxious to get started quickly.

Some of the screen captures here make use of the Data Logging option

    When you use thermocouple on the quest roaster, where do you place the ET probe (inside the rotating drum as per quest analog meter or outside the rotating drum via the lower screw holding the bean entrance)?

      I place the ET probe int the lower right pre-drilled hole – next to the drum door arm. See here. In that photo the bean mass probe is the left one, and the ET probe is the right one.

      I’ve been thinking about moving it to what some folks call the MET location – the bottom right screw of the bean chute, to see if that gives better accuracy for estimating heat changes.
