Why is this a big deal?
Let's hear what some beta testers have to say about it:
THIS IS SO AMAZING!!! Zero issues today, roasted on replay and everything. I can't believe how awesome this is.
Stereo Coffee Roasters, Geoff Polci
I've been eagerly working with gas control and it works very well. I can concentrate more on my roasts as I am able to control both gas and Cropster from the same screen.
Jonas Reindl Coffee Roasters, Philip Feyer
This feature does not disappoint. I produce more consistent batches while being unhitched from the roaster. I am not needed for every gas change when things are on track.
Regard Coffee, Andrew Knox
We have roasted approximately a ton now with the beta of Replay Assist. We are amazed how stable and easy to work with it is! With the in-between batch protocol and Reply Assist we are achieving much uniform roasted batches and great consistency.

You can now connect your roast machine via plug & play. This is the most reliable and accurate way to connect Cropster to your Probat roast machine. We are really excited about this new update and have compiled everything you need to know to get started.
How do you get it if you are a Probat user?
It's a free upgrade to your existing Cropster subscription! You need to activate it. Currently, Gas control and Replay assist is available for Probatone 2 machines with a capacity of 5, 12 or 25 kg and PRS licence (need PRS? Contact Probat). To set up the direct integration with your Probat machine, check out this detailed manual here. Once that is done, you only need to make a few changes in Roasting Intelligence to take advantage of the direct connection. Then, you're good to go. You need to create some replayable profiles first and you'll be able to replay them whenever you want! We've pulled together a comprehensive blog post outlining all the benefits and features of Gas control and Replay assist for you.
Finally, we're glad to have a leading industry player like Probat so tightly integrated with Cropster. We are excited about this partnership and cannot wait to work on more projects together. At Cropster, we love collaboration and are always looking for your thoughts and ideas. If you can think of something that would make your daily work with your Probat roaster & Cropster even easier, let us know.
