Same here. I do like the “skip a hit” method. Heat in IH till click, DON’T hit, wait till cool down click, go back into IH till click. This way you bypass the normal weaker initial hit, and the hit after the 2nd heatup, is perfect for me, flavor, not too hot. I go in one more time for the final toastier hit.I usually prefer a slower session with a dynavap so I tend to follow the clicks at first.
I find dip n sip helpful near the end of a bowl when I want to get through it and repack another.
After a while you get to know your tip and can anticipate the level of roast based on how long your heating it. It becomes intuitive.
