Topic: Leaving chaff in a Freshie to slow down roast (19 lines)
1) From: Bill Van Huis
Responding to:
*Decaf needs to rest just like any other coffee,  but in roasting,  the
first crack can be very quiet, there will be almost no chaff, so if you
are using a fluid bed roaster (ie air roaster) one trick is to leave the
chaff from a regular batch in it then do a decaf to slow down the air
flow enough so they behave a little better in the roast.*

I'm just a newbie, and a non-science type to boot, but wouldn't doing this
also speed up the roast?  In other words doesn't restricting the air flow
cause the heat to build in the chamber more quickly?  FR8s just roast so
fast as it is. I generally hit FC with decafs right around 7 mins.
