Topic: Reroast? (2 msgs / 42 lines)
1) From: Bill Goodman
Hello fellow homeroasters,
I ran my iRoast2 yesterday using 150g of Sumatran Mandheling, and a 
profile that I thought would take it to about FC+.  For whatever reason 
it fell short, with a lot of unevenness in color, lots of chaff hanging 
on, and more of a baked rather than roasted aroma...ugh.  The only 
obvious thing under my control that I could change was to make sure all 
seals around the roast chamber and chaff collector were as tight as 
possible, so I roasted another 150g worth today, and everything worked 
fine.  This gave me the idea of re-roasting yesterday's batch, which I 
did about a half hour later, and while the beans look better than before 
(even color and less chaff), their aroma/flavor still aren't quite on a 
par with my first roast today.  I didn't taste the "baked" beans before 
re-roasting, so I guess my question is:  did the re-roast also help the 
flavor enough to make it worth the trouble?  What experiences have other 
list members with reroasting?
Thanks!
Bill

Well, I've never reroasted, but, personally, I would not throw them out
without tasting a cup. Not that much trouble, is it?
