Topic: Thanks for the Welcome! (3 msgs / 53 lines)
1) From: Marci Morey
I can tell already that I'm going to like this group! You are all so friendly and welcoming! 
   
  I played around with the popper some more today and am pleased with the results. Putting in the green beans then listening and smelling them change is like magic! I am now (not so) patiently waiting for the beans to degas so I can taste the coffee. 
   
  How I made it work was to add more beans, then tilt the popper backwards a bit. The beans that flew up were able to fall back into the popper and the chaff flew out. 
   
  Payday, I'm definitely ordering the sampler pack of beans! I'm hooked already!

Where in Illinois are you?  We're in Cedar Rapids Iowa, due west of
Chicago by 3.5 hours...
Alos, some people us a soup can to extend the chimney of their popper
- this can reduce the "Jumpers"...

Marci - Welcome aboard!  While it is probable that resting will
improve the flavor, go ahead and make a brew even though it hasn't
rested.  That way you can compare the changes as it ages.  I have
never had a short rest brew that I didn't like but frequently it does
get even better with 2-7 days rest. And... Decaf is usually OK to brew
with very short rest.
