Hello folks,

on my 7th Behmor roasts, I have some Sumatran (not from any particular place such as sweetmarias etc) that I've been roasting using Behmor 1#, P3, D as follows:
8.1 oz 20.5 minutes then cooling
9.2 oz 22 minutes
8.8 oz 18 minutes (the reason for the drop in time is because I had received and used a new chaff collector, prior to this, the Behmor door didn't close properly, hence the lower roast time compared to before)

The color is comparable to some of the store-bought roast (Stumptown Gajah Aceh for example), however taste-wise is a bit grassy. This taste is from straight espresso out of Breville Dual Boiler.
What did I do wrong in my roast? Should I stop being afraid and roast all the way to the end of 1#, P3, D using 8 oz of coffee? I was afraid it will be too dark and taste burnt. Let me know and thanks beforehand.

Adding clarification, there's no way to edit my previous post.

Just to clarify, beans color are good, mid brown to dark, smells are also pretty good. The espresso that comes out has plenty of crema, good color and has good body (not too liquid). However still taste a bit grassy. What should I do?

How long to first crack? How much rest? You can try P2 with some door dance between EoD and 1st crack so you don't overshoot the runway.

@jowdawson, I got them while I was in Jakarta, went to the local markets. I answered you in your own thread.

I found out this weekend I did 1#, P3, D for 8 oz up to 19 mins they were just passing first crack. It smells burnt however upon tasting, and have slightly darker color but no oils on the outside (could be due to the fact my green beans are longer than 6 mths old perhaps?) and none of the grassy taste. This is the 8th roasts, so it's still a pretty new machine, I'm sure roast time will go up as I use it more and more.
