Topic: Expansion, weight loss (4 msgs / 55 lines)
1) From: Vicki Smith
One of the big differences I notice when roasting in my bread machine, 
rather than in my IR2, is the difference in bean expansion. I just did 
some calculating, and today's roast doubled in volume, and lost 11% in 
weight when pulled just at the initial pops of second crack.
In my IR2, the weight loss is about the same, but I get much less expansion.
I can't really compare roast times, as I roast a max of 150 grams in the 
IR2, and a whole lot more in the bread machine.
Thoughts...

More info...
I was roasting Tom's Moka Kadir blend, and I know he goes to great 
lengths to get the moisture content to equalize. I also know that the 
weight loss sure seems greater in SO beans. I am assuming Tom's efforts 
are responsible for this difference in the MK.

Seems like the last time I checked it, 5 cups became 8 cups and the
weight loss was about 16%.

Huh, I have found my personal expansion to be inversely proportional to my
weight loss ... :-)
