Topic: On Travel and Vac Sealing (2 msgs / 44 lines)
1) From: Jason Brooks
Well, I've pretty well established my dosage thanks to Tom.  Probably
tonight or tomorrow, I'm looking at prepping the beans.  I seem to remember
Mike McKoffee discussing vac sealing roasted for his wife, but I've yet to
locate the ref.  Are there any significant pre-reqs?  What I have on hand is
the sealer and a roll for bags.  Probably a few jar attachments.  That's
about it.  My greatest concern is outgassing.  If I seal tonight, the beans
are two days rested.  Wait another?  They'd be waiting, sealed, through to
Monday morn or later, depending on how many I take.
Any experienced roasted coffee vac sealers have insight?
Jason

Although I've nowhere the roasting expertise of many on this list, I 
frequently roast extra to get me through the periods when I'm too busy 
to roast a fresh batch. I allow the roasted beans to degas for 12-24 
hours and then vac seal them with my FoodSaver. My experience is that 
if I seal too soon, the bag puffs out with the gas given off from the 
beans. If I wait overnight, the sealed bags remain tight little 
packages. I've not noticed a difference in taste unless I wait more 
than 2 or 3 days to seal the coffee, but then I don't have the best 
palate in the world either.
