In "Roasts" I press the start button and the timer starts, but I cant see how to enter temps. It must be obvious to everyone else, but I get a flat graph no matter what I do.

Hi Andy

Sorry for the delay. I went on vacation as the next Roastmaster update was in review with Apple. It's live as of about 10 minutes ago.  :)

To enter temperature readings from a thermometer or probe, you'll need to create a Reading curve. In a new roast, tap the blue button near the roasting gauge, and tap "New Curve". Set it to Reading, and the appropriate measurement system (C or F), and save. Then, back in the roasting console, make sure that new curve is selected (tap the graph to toggle through each curve in the roast).

As the roast is in progress, all you need to do to enter temps is tap the digital readout near the gauge, and enter the temp. It will create a timestamped node at that temp. You can define as many curves as you need for recording temps.

Once you hit on a good one you want to match for future roasts, you can copy and paste it from the roast to a new profile or program as a target to match in future roasts. Whenever you select that profile or program in a roast, the target curve will be visible in the roast as well as any new curves you define in that roast for recording new temps.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Andy

I just did a practice roast in real time and I think I've got the gist of it. Roastmaster is an impressive program -- maybe a little overkill for my little popper-on-the-back-porch roasting operation -- but in time I guess I will sort out the features that are useful for me. Thanks for getting me started, Danny; I'm sure I will bother you again from time to time. Happy Thanksgiving, if you are in the US -- and if not, Happy Thanksgiving anyway.

Yes - I've staved off my Tryptophan turkey coma about as long as I can tonight, though the Sumatra and French Press I took to mom's helped with that! :) Lots to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!!!

Let me know whenever you have questions.
