1st crack hit at 15:50 minutes.. 50 seconds of a pause & beans went into a slow start of a rolling second crack /……Time 19:30 (complete) dumped 4 lbs (3&1/3 lbs Roasted) into a good 12+ seconds of a 2nd crack (Rolling) and slammed the brakes on 2nd crack when the beans hit my cooling
fan…. let see if someone could do that with a roaster under $750.00…..Excellent+ Roaster you got there Shane!
