I'll simply cut & paste my HB post from the current refriderate/freezing
thread:
Tried my hand at another video showing how 7 day rested then 6 week vacuum
sealed frozen beans pull. Used clear glass demi rather than cut crystal,
zoomed in closer and added some hi-tech lighting (19.2v Craftsman flashlight
with I believe krpton bulb)http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7510195106277647437Appears to be a good 90%+ crema end of shot Guinessing to ~45% 30 seconds
post shot. This is my blend of 100% Arabica Caffe' Rosto 15min gentle
tickling a wee bit into 2nd profile roasted to light FC, 4min drying
equalization stage to 300f, level ramp to start of 1st ~9:30, 15min end of
roast cooled to 125f ~2min, pre-roast equal part blend of Aged Sumatra,
Brazil Cerrado DP, Brazil Cerrado WP, Harrar DP and Kona WP. Shot pulled
~202f. 
The proof is in the cup and it was delish!

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.
