Im on about my third roast, so take what I say with a grain of salt!
This is exactly what I found with the starter pack Colombian after 24 hrsOriginally Posted by PhatBoy link=1154851205/0#0 date=1154851205
(I roasted up all four last weekend).
"i was dying to try them. didnt think they would come out this bad."
Same here, but it seems to be pretty common behaviour after such a
short time. General wisdom seems to be to wait 2 - 4 days, frustrating
as that might be.
"When using Columbian the grind is very yellow as is the panama special."
I roasted the Colombian very light (beans light brown, yellowish grind),
and concluded that it needed more. Could never get beyond a woody
taste and texture.
"Can i reroast the the lighter batch??"
I did that last week with the Panama (after noticing that the roast was
very uneven -- there was a thread about it last week). Put them back in
the popper and took it past 2nd crack. Seemed to work reasonably well.
