Topic: Oil Sheen - no problem (43 lines)
1) From: Kevin DuPre
I am roasting with a Fresh Roast and whether I am
using it "stock" or throttling the temp with my relay
mod I have no problem getting a full oil sheen.  This
results from delaying the onset of cooling beyond
second crack - the longer the oilier. But beware!
Beyond second crack, thing happen very fast. You can
go from full city to burnt, depending on the bean in a
matter of seconds or minutes.  Again this is judged by
eye and smell. I watch very carefully, sometimes point
a flashlight on the glass tower so I can see things
better.
When I'm going to the oily sheen it's usually
accompanied by continuing the roast WITH HEATER ON,
for anywhere between 15 seconds and a minute.  Be
prepared for smoke because there will be lots of it
the oilier you go.  Too long and you will have
charcoal.
