I'd love to pick your brain about this app. It's visually appealing but for the life of me cannot figure out how to use it. The help section is not geared on how to actually use the program - as strange as that may seem. Lots about the features in the help section but not how to work the app.
Nodes are what gets added to curves when you input during a roast, there may be a reason to add a node before hand for an alarm or something else but not something I have ever done. When a roast is done and I have logged temps during a roast the amount of nodes are the amount of temps I have logged.
Heat settings, fan settings, or what ever else you can set the max value to represent what best suits the entry. For example I have 3 settings for my exhaust fan but I set it up at 100 and I enter 0, 50, or 100 but this could also be set up at with a max of 3 and I would enter 1,2, or 3. The max you set it to give the graph a value so it can be visually charted and as long as it makes sense to you then all is good.
One way to play around is to go to utilities and set up a roaster called TEST and then also set up a bean called Test so you can play around with some of this stuff with out screwing up your bean inventory or adding BS to your roaster curves.
