*Outside Variables to Coffee Bean Roasting*
There Are Many Factors When It Comes To Roasting And If Your Time Is Off By 2-4 Min, That Is Okay. As Long As The Beans Are Being Roasted In Under 18 Minutes.
1. Ambient room temp is something to be considered, anything below 55*F will result in a roaster running cool.
2. The supply voltage being too low or an extension cord being used can also result in low heat output.
3. Running the fan too high during a roast will also result in low heat output.
