As I'm sure many have answered, it means the latter, but on a related not=
keep a log and in that log I record the time to the beginning of first cr=
when a rolling first crack occurs, and when the end of first crack happen=
(Repeat for second crack phase.) I do this so that on subsequent batches=
can stop at any arbitrary point in the roast cycle.
However, I don't count the first crack of the first crack cycle as the
beginning! I count the second crack of the first crack cycle as the begi=
of first crack. I count the very first crack as an outlier -- it often c=
30 seconds or more before the next crack.
