Today I had a cone 6 firing. When the kiln reached temp and shut off, I decided I wanted to do a controlled cool. I did a ramp/hold schedule (Skutt 1027) of 500F/h to 1900 no hold, and then 150F/h to 1400. When I pressed "start," it thought the firing was complete (because we were already passed 1900, at 2230ish). Does anyone know a way to program a slow cool after you've already reached top temp?

I've just opened my first firing with Hesselberth/Roy's suggested firing schedule for cone 6. I was surprised to see that my glazes turned out way more matt than usual (see photo of two pots, same glaze) as well as having a complete color change with my layered blue. Has anyone else experienced a complete change (for the worse) when using this firing schedule. I've rechecked the programing and it was entered correctly. Maybe having 3" brick on my kiln changes the game??? Would love some input. I'm refiring this load and hoping to salvage it.
