Hottop Project outside the box
Well I installed all my UK-105 upgrade but the element.
I am waiting on a 1000w element to arrive.
WAIT! Don't yell at me.
Hottop had a 900watt prototype.
I got a PWM to tone it down. limb
Now quietly, any thoughts???

So I mostly finished the mods.
Tested a batch.
Ran PWM at 3/4+ power.
Set roaster on auto to see what happens.
Seams to roast alot faster...

Poop, pic's flipped back from editing.

Auto ran 3 mins faster than program.
Manual without charge took 1.5 minutes less.
Manual with 250 charge and 240grams took exact time minus a few seconds.
Will roast Sumatra lintong this weekend.
Ran outta Ethiopian.
I roasted 300 grams Sumatra set to 18mins.
Dropped beans in at 16mins, 174degrees.
Made some fan, heat tweeks...
Had to dump at 15.5 mins first batch.
Second batch all the same.
But... let it go 20ish seconds longer to hit 10ish seconds into 2nd crack..
Both smell good... 1 a touch fruity and other woodsy?
Will taste monday and tuesday.

Consistently roasting 300G. Like it but will try something other than Sumatra soon. (30lbs so far)
From charge to drop has been, 13 minutes and 15 seconds.
Give or take 10-20 seconds.
