Topic: Wee bit grassy at 12min resolved (2 msgs / 42 lines)
1) From: Mike McGinness
Did a roast of new bean similar to some I'm very familiar with (a Kona,
surprise) to Light Full City pre-2nd, 6min to start of 1st, another 6min
development gentle 1st crack to pre-2nd (my 440f). It was a bit grassy
until day three. Did another batch of same extending ramp to start of 1st
(my 380f) to 7min rather than 6min, same 6min development stage for 13min
same final temp. Grassy gone. 30min 'rest' cup okie dokie! Wish there was an
easy way to measure moisture content of greens before roasting... any ideas?

A density measurement might be a good starting point.  If you have two =
equal
volumes of beans with comparable bean size but differing weight, the 
heavier
beans are probably carrying more water.  But bean size differences from =
one
type to the next are significant and hard to factor in, at least as far =
as I
can see.
