Topic: Gethumbwini abuse (5 msgs / 83 lines)
1) From: Wesley Simon
I decided to roast up a pound of my Gethumbwini last night.  In my RK drum
roasts, I've often dumped before ever hearing second crack.  So, in pursuit
of finding this illusive second crack, I left the heat on when first crack
started.  I did reduce it, but not near as much as I have been.  2-3 minute=
s
later, second crack did start.  I killed the heat and went to dump the drum
to stop the roast.  The pin was being difficult, so I struggled to pull the
door pin as my Gethumbwini hit a rapid second crack.  I dumped, but I think
I ended up with somewhere around vienna.  12 hours later, a tiny bit of oil
can be seen on a bean or two.  I'm hoping I didn't roast out all the good
flavor of this coffee.  It would be a shame to have ruined it.

60 hours rest, a little more oil...Brewed a pot in the KMB this morning:
charred with very little actual flavor.  I'll be giving it away or throwing
it away.....

I hate it when that happens.  I've lost about 6-8 lb in the last year to
flaming roasts...
We are addicted to this game, that's what it is!
I just keep going back and clicking "place order"

He he. Its funny you would post this now.  I just got done sending an e-mai=
l
yelling (with tongue in cheek) at the guy who introduced me to homeroasting=
.
Here I was minding my own business this AM when I received an e-mail from
one of suppliers about their new Jamaica Blue.  I was interested so I went
to the website and what should happen?  No I was able to resist the Blue (a=
t
$26/lb) but I couldn't help myself.  Before I was done I had clicked "Place
Order" and now have another few lbs coming my way.  It is like an addiction=
