We miss to hear from some one roasting into Second Crack

Added to Roasting Basics:
A roaster typical has an optimum load – that gives the best stearing posibility and the least problems.
With a 1 kilo batch in the Bullet the beans reacts slower to changes and you need to use max-power; P9 and have no headspace do more .
With a 300 grams batch it responds too quickly (“fly around”, Albino calls it).
The longtime-Bullet owners who have payed attention to this report around 600-750 gram works the best.
