Topic: Gotta love doing an inventory (7 msgs / 130 lines)
1) From: Michael Dhabolt
Sort of a lazy day, and I have to roast to keep ahead of the 3 day rest
period.  I decided I'd inventory my stash.......Lo and Behold.....five
pounds of forgotten Sumatra Aged Mendheling.  One of my all time favorite
'Highlite' (or Lowlite - attitude dependent) beans.
50% Brazil Yellow Bourbon,
25% Misty Valley,
12.5% Aged Sumatra,
12.5% Monsooned Malabar,
Hope I'll be able to wait the three days.

Congrats on the find, sounds like some tasty shots are in store! (Even
though I'd probably have gone more like 15% Aged Sumatra 10% Monsooned
Malabar:-)

The trouble with the unexpected find, is that for the last few seasons it
seems to be more irreplaceable than most beans so I'll be considerably more
aware as it dwindles away.  I'll try to do blends that minimize the aged
Sumatra content while still maintaining the effect.  Perhaps a little
Alchemy!

I suspected you'd reply that way! BTW, remember that "Old Brown" 96/97 crop
Aged Java Tom offered in '01? That I had planned to and forgot to roast for
PNWG last year? Well still got a bit over a # vac bagged. Think I'll make a
special shot blend for PNWG this year anchored with it (won't include any
Malabar.) Though I'll need to roast a small sample batch to see if it's
still any good first of course. Not sure if vac sealed Aged Indo greens
"can" go baggy, not like there's any acidity to loose! But haven't roasted
any of it since some time in '02 so who knows.

miKe,
 >Not sure if vac sealed Aged Indo greens "can" go baggy<
Lacking evidence to the contrary....I'm sticking to the belief that, if
stored correctly, 'aged' just gets better.....could be a holdover from
my attitude about single malt scotch......but I'm sticking to it ;~)

Well I hear that scotch doesn't actually age in the bottle.  But I imagine,
that yes, you can preserve the flavor in the bottle storing it right!

Speaking from experience, scotch doesn't age in the bottle, but once opened
the exposure to air (even just that in the bottle) can cause a fine single
malt to go flat over time.
