Topic: sour coffee from behomor-another idea (2 msgs / 48 lines)
1) From: Tim Harvey
Had a brain surge taking the dog out this am-was the boil you were using a full rolling boil, or one where you were getting the tiny bubbles?  I've noticed a HUGE difference in temp between the two.  The tiny little bubble boil isn't hot enough and could be causing the sourness.

Tim,
Thanks for the thoughts.  I didn't answer sooner as I wanted to try  
your idea.
I'm having keyboard problems (seems it doesn't like diet pepsi) if I  
sent this already and this is a duplicate - sorry.
This morning I got a good rolling boil in the little pyrex teapot I  
use to heat water in the microwave and then gave it a quick swirl to  
make it stop bubbling and poured.  Still sour.  I will give it  
another week of rest to see if some miracle happens.  In the mean   
time I'm going to roast one load in my FR8 this afternoon and take it  
to 20/30 seconds into 2nd and see if that helps.  If that cures the  
problem I'll let the list know.
