Peter, the more you roast the more weightloss you will have ....
I think the humidity of the green beans will have a bigger impact. There are
small devices for measuring this. For large scale buyers this is a must as a
difference of 1% implies in serious money. Green beans should not surpass
12% humidity and I can`t imagine chaff and small dropouts will count for 2%
... so 14% seems to me having started with a not very well stored beans.

The more you roast it, the more weight loss you have and the greater  
volume expansion... With a City+ to Full City roast, I expect about a  
14% weight loss, but some the beans surprise me... So for 8 ounce  
start, I expect to get a about 6.9 ounces roasted. I don't know if  
that's a rule of thumb or not, YMMV.
