Topic: Splitting roast's EOR (54 lines)
1) From: sci
Easy miKe.  Look...all apologies for the "lazy" subject heading.
Occasionally I forget to edit the subject heading because in Gmail I have to
actually click a little link to open the heading box when I reply. Hence,
out of sight, out of mind. I humbly stand corrected. I did post again with a
subject heading for precisely this reason, but alas, I fear being roasted
for posting twice now.
As for the USRC: I just can't afford such a luxury. A WP costs $20 and does
a bang-up job on 1# over a gas burner. I got mine for $3 at a yard sale.
With $5 lb of green, I was in business for under $10 (not bad). I'm sure the
USRC is superior and gives precise repeatability of roasts and all, and is
energy efficient. Maybe one day I'll find a small commercial roaster--I'd
love to actually.
Concerning the splits and quantities: I dunno, but you make a good point.
Just seemed about right to do 1/2 and 1/2 as it takes me a while to figure
out what roast I like. Honestly, I can't cup all that good and need to drink
coffee from several different brewers to fully appreciate and assay a
bean/roast. But I'll give your suggestions a whirl.

First List pet peeve: what the heck kind of post Subject is "Homeroast
Digest, Vol 3, Issue 20" other than a lazy reply?! Digest post repliers
ought to make their Subject indicative of the topic, just like using OT if a
post is OT.
Since you began with "I'll have to be more precise" remember both I and
others with small 1# "commercial roasters" have posted a number of times how
energy efficient they are. Therefore your analogy doesn't hold up. If
someone "gave you" a USRC 1# commercial drum roaster it would be very
inexpensive to run.
Why less than a 1# roast not enough to split a roast? If splitting the roast
EOR (end of roast) to test desired ideal roast level would likely actually
want much smaller sample amounts, just enough for a couple cuppings each
sample, much less than 1/2# each roast level. And for home production use,
if someone normally does let's say a 1/2# batch for their use why would it
be ineffective to split since final total yield would be the same?
