Topic: De Gasing (4 msgs / 78 lines)
1) From: decesarecj
After roasting 10Oz's of bean at a time out of my Hot Top, I package it in a 12 oz valve bag, and seal it. I notice that I don't get much of an aroma, when squeezing the bag, out of the purge valve. Any way to give me more gas from the beans?  Most of my roast are a City to City plus.....Thanks as always!

I havent tested this experimentally, but I seem to remember that darker
roasts will offgas more than lighter ones (I've been roasting lighter
lately, and don't get so much gas in my jars).
For me, aroma always peaks after a few days rest,  which I believe is a
separate process from outgassing.
Remember that the goal is tasty beans, not gas...

just wait.  as the beans begin to rest, they'll de-gas and puff the bag again; just squeeze every day and you'll hear and smell it (smells like coffee, not gas, thank heaven).

The gas that escapes just after roasting is mostly carbon dioxide, which =
has no aroma. Personally, I'd rather the aromas and flavors stayed in the b=
eans until I grind and brew. But that's just me....
