Topic: 18hrs rest ... Ethiopian or Brazillian? (3 msgs / 53 lines)
1) From: Patrick R. Sklenar
Ethiopian Biloya Special or Brazil FTO DP Poco Fundo?
I ran out of time to roast this weekend, so I had to do it at lunch
today.  Wondering which stands a better chance of being rested enough in
such a short time.  Anyone have any thoughts or opinions?
On a side note ... had my first chaff fire today.  Tenth roast in the
Behmor.  First Crack had tapered off.  No cracks for 10-15 seconds & I
hit cool (was aiming for City+ on the Ethiopian).  about 30 seconds
later I saw an orange-ish flash of light and then smoke started coming
out the top edge of the door.  I hit the OFF button, the smoke stopped
almost instantly, and I pulled the plug.  About 30 seconds later there
was no smoke, no signs of flight inside the compartment and all of the
sudden I hear some snaps.  they started building up and within 10-15
seconds I could tell I was about to hear a rolling Second Crack so ... I
took a chance ... plugged the unit back in and hit the COOL button.  No
smoke.  No light.  And the cracks started dying off.  I think I ended up
at least with a Full City+, but hopefully it'll still taste okay ... at
least there's no surface oil showing.
