Topic: Interrupted roasting (2 msgs / 60 lines)
1) From: Ken Mary
My first intentional interrupted roast (Colombian Quindio) gave unexpectedly
good results. I stopped at 3 minutes, a few pops into first crack, cooled
for 3 mins to near 100F, then restarted. First crack ran from 1.8 to 3.0
minutes after restart and second began at 3.2 mins then cooling began. Total
time under heat was 6.2 mins.
The brightness was greater than normal for Colombians. In fact it was almost
tongue burning. The complexity (depth of flavors) was among the best of my
Colombian roasts. The body seemed near normal, but lacking in comparison
with the brightness. Finish and aftertaste were normal. After a day's rest
the complexity is increasing and the finish and aftertaste becoming much
better. The tongue stinging brightness is still there.
So not only does interrupting a roast not ruin it, but may contribute to
better results. One roast does not make a rule, so I will be doing a few
more to verify and improve the method.

Ken,
I will be interested in updates as to how this works after a few more
of your tests...
