Topic: Gene Cafe and HGDB test. (38 lines)

Here are my results testing the Gene and HG methods
 
On 2/16,  6ozs of Misty Valley.  Gene set to 482 for 20  min.  First crack at 
13.5 min. 465 temp. Turned the temp down to keep  it at 465 till 1st ended 
and finished the roast at 16 min.  Cooled 2  min in the Gene and then stopped 
and cooled by hand with a fan.
 
6 ozs of Misty Valley HGDB.  This was kinda hard to time with a wrist  watch 
and both hands busy.  So I tried to keep the roast about the same  amount of 
time as the Gene. Started out on low power for 5 min about 2 to 3  inches from 
the beans. I used a stainless mixing bowl from an old  mixer. Then turned the 
gun to high about 1 1/2 inches from the beans until  1st crack 10 min later or 
16 min into roast. Moved HG up to 3 inch or more to  finish and even up the 
roast and stopped at 18 min and hand cooled on top of a  fan.
 
I am not a super taster and don't get strawberry's and such from my  coffee.  
I do notice a fruity or something taste though.  
 
2/19 I brewed with the Technivorm Swiss Gold filter full pot.
 
Gene batch was good but I did notice some bitterness and not as  fruity.
HGDB was better, a little more fruity and no bitterness.  
 
Hubby had a cup from the Gene batch and I had a cup from the HGDB.  We  use 
the same cups and had them sitting on the end table while watching  television. 
 Both cups had cooled quite a bit.  He took a drink out of  mine by mistake 
and then said, "did you put some bourbon in your coffee".   We both sampled 
each others cold coffee and mine sure did have  a smoother bourbon flavor.
 
I will brew up some more tomorrow and see if 5 days rest makes a  difference.
