Glorious City+ roast. I know it's my first  nothing out of the iR2 or
FR8 looked like this! Before it was Full City and then some. Another
hit from the BM/HG process. If I keep this up I'll have roasted my
entire stash :).
How many days should I rest this Misty Valley? I know I'll have some
tomorrow morning (won't be able to wait) but I'll have two more pots
of it. I guess one pot each day to see how it changes.
I've been dumping it into a large metal strainer, spritzing it with a
fine mist of water (twice, shaking it inbetween), and then putting the
strainer into my freezer for a few minutes. Is this a good way to cool
the beans? I'm not doing a large amount (<300g). I don't have a good
way to set up a fan. I have an open patio and everything has to be
hauled out for every roast I do (no cover). Now that it's winter it's
not too much of a problem but once the weather warms up I'll have to
see if this still works. The water spritz idea I got from Kenneth
Davids book on Home Roasting.
