Topic: fast fc to sc - good results (3 msgs / 25 lines)

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
ive always strived to get to FC around 7mins, let it finish, slow it down so
2nd crack hits 3-5mins after fc is done, allowing a 12-14min roast.
 
this weekend, i roasted some monkey and classic italian, with FC hitting at
around 1030, and turned up heat all the way, so SC followed it immediately,
still allowing a 13-15min roast.  the result?  much smoother cups, huge
chocolates the way classic italian should taste, from what i remember of
ordering a roasted bactch from SM.  ive heard its better to gap FC to SC,
something about the coffee aging better?  anyway, unless it totally funks on
me in a couple days, this seems to be the way to go. :)

Again, Darned interesting.... I too usually try to slow things after first
crack.... Let us know how this turns out, Leo.
