Topic: "aged" ISH (28 lines)
1) From: Myron Joshua
Well, thanks to Susan and the Postal Serviced, I have just roasted my first
"aged" ISH. It took a while to arrive, but it came.
I divided my 130 grams into 70 gram and 60 gram batches and roasted the 70
gram batch in my HWP.
I was stunned at how fast first crack came...like after 2 min 45 seconds
rather than 4-4:30 (My temp was 430 degrees). Second was much slower in
arriving. I remember that the beans roast "darker" than average...so hope
that i did not go overboard when i stopped the roast at 6 min 25 secs. with
small signs of oil..which were no longer than after cooling.
At 5:45 I had reached 485 and a powerful smell hit me. Maybe i should have
turned it off right then....
I roasted inside my little guard booth where i was on duty...There i hear
and smell much better.
Also roasted what should be a fine Puerto Rican, compliments of Michael
Walls...many thx Michael.
Best. myron
