Hey all. I just made a shot of Monkey blend from the stuff that i roasted last night. It has rested about 10 hours now. I think i roasted it too lights, its a city roast, altho it was at a rolling 2nd crack...so maybe i just dont know what a rolling 2nd crack sounds like:P)
Anyhow...the shot tasted very acidic and grassy...not very good...can i put these beans back in my poppery and continue the roast?

I will reply to the post I sent earlier.
Tonight I re-roasted 5 varieties of Columbian coffee that I originally =
roasted Sunday past. Roasted all of them just a snap or two into 2nd. =
crack.
Cupped them all, and the brightness was to much for my taste. although =
the brew was good, it was way to bright for me.
So I re-roasted all of them tonight, to a rolling 2nd crack. I tried the =
Peaberry and found it was way better dark, then light, the brightness is =
well muted, and the body was heavier, with a nice long finish. I will =
cup the others tomorrow.
I could see no harm in the re-roast, and thought it actually improved. =
This is my first attempt at re-roasting, and may try it with some other =
varieties in the future.

Sounds like you stopped it during the first crack.  Acidic, grassy and light
colored would be characteristic of beans at first crack.  If it was anywhere
near second, the beans would be much darker and mellower.  A rolling second
would produce beans that most likely would have some gloss and evidence of
oil. Possibly full oil (AKA Starbucks).  First crack is like little pops.
Second is much more gentle.
I'd re-roast them until you hear the beginning of what sounds like cellophane
crackling.

I put them back in, and roasted till i had a very small amount of oil on 
the surface. They look much nicer. I'll give them a try tomorrow morning.
