    Thanks for all of your feedback. I am meeting with someone on Friday who has alot of experience with my type of machine and I will report on our discussion and roasting.

    Try this one, too:

    3min@300, 3min@350, 4min@400, 3min@420, 2min@400

    ignorance revealed by this question, eldub...i'm understanding your most recent profile to be 3 min until 300*F, 3 more min to get to 350*F, 4 more min to get to 400*F, 3 more min to get to 420*F(13 min thus far), but i'm confused by the final "2min @400". could you clarify for me?

    The profile in question gives AMBIENT TEMPS of the roaster. (At least that's what I'm guessing from the information given by OP.) The process would be shooting for BEAN TEMPS of roughly: 5.5 minutes until 300*, 2.5 minutes to get to 350*, 3 more to 400* and 4 minutes to finish at around 445*.

    The last two minutes w/ambient temp at 400* should be all that is needed to slow the roasting process down and still allow batch to finish without stalling w/bean temp of (hopefully) 445*.

    PS: I really have no idea what his roaster will do, but the times and temps above do correspond roughly to what I like to see on my roaster. The place I'm prolly wrong on the above profile would be by giving 300* as the starting point for ambient temps. After thinking about it, I'm guessing that the first temp programmed into the machine should maybe be closer to 380* to allow for temp drop after charging the barrel.
