Just pulled the first shot of this roast profile at 4 days (and 30 minutes) rest (mason jar vac sealed directly post roast cooling as is my roast rest and storage norm). All I can say so far is WOW! Definitely seems much better top end definition but not lacking anywhere else. I'd say perfectly balanced but that's just going too darned far! Besides, then wouldn't leave room for improvement, and there's always room for improvement. But dang, one of the best shots of anything I've had in a very long time. Of course, didn't roast any using the previous profile at the same time to compare so taste memory comes into play. Tomorrow or Tuesday plan to roast 3 or 4 slightly different profiles for direct comparisons. (half of each also being sent to Abe to compare)another_jim wrote:I'd be interested to know how it goes. My experiment yielded a too bright taste, but terrific aromas (unfortunately nothing like the taste, a bait and switch roast if I've ever tasted one). Getting the taste match the aroma will be my next job.
Jim, IIRC this profile was a minute longer start of 1st to end of roast than yours, might try lengthening a hair.
I'll post the detailed profiles after comparisons done by myself and Abe.
