Topic: Cooldown on Poppery with separate fan and heater (13 msgs / 304 lines)
1) From: Brian D. Frost
I have separated my fan and heater controls so do I need to dump the beans
into a collander with fan to stop the roasting process or can I just switch
off the heater and let the fan cool them?
Also, do you let the beans sit in the open air when letting them de-gas for
the first few days after roasting?

2) From: Andy Thomas
I switch off the heater and let the beans cool right in the popper. It takes about 2 minutes to cool to about 180F.

I shut off the heater, let the beans cool to 250F, then put them on a =
baking sheet while I start the next batch.  By the time I've got the =
next batch into the controlled drying portion, the beans are fully =
cooled and ready to hit the mason jar.

My method is more rustic.  I dump the beans into a collander, swish it
around a couple times, then lay the beans en masse onto my black
granite counter.  Works like a big heat sink - and the popper is ready
for another load...

I usually put them into a cool mason jar and seal it there...  Others
have recommended partial sealing, or later sealing, but I do it right
away with results that are aceptable for me...

Brian,
I leave the lids completely off for 24 hours, then cap loosely for =
another 24, then I seal 'em up.

8) From: Paul Helbert
I added one way valves from coffee bags to a few mason jar lids and use
those from the get-go. First try was with epoxy but ran across a suggestion
to just use cello tape on the outside of the lid. Easier, cleaner, quicker
and simple to replace.

I put them in mason jars and close the lids. I guess mine are no longer airtight as they are seldom under pressure when I open them next day or so.

Brian,
I wish I could remember who it was, but it seems that someone on the
list did some experimenting on this topic, sealing some beans
immediately after the roast, letting others sit in the open air for a
day or two, etc. It seems that one result is that beans that were
sealed immediately after the roast had muted flavors.
Maybe whoever that was will still chime in.

I run the fan only for a few seconds while I get my bowl ready to dump the
beans - but I do not consider the fan sufficient to cool the beans, it stays
quite hot for a few minutes after you cut out the heat.

And to the 2nd part...I let them sit out for a few hours and use plastic
vacuum bowls to store them in...but honestly I never seal them anymore.
