[Homeroast] How long do you rest your roast?

I am currently working on an unplanned coffee experiment.  Every summer my 
family meets for a family reunion camp out.  We all share the responsibility of 
supplying food for meals.  This year I decided to share my home roasted coffee.  
I roasted several batches over two days of my favorite Sumatra and planned 4-5 
days rest.  Not knowing how much to roast I decided it was ok to have too much.  
Indeed I did.  Today I am a full two weeks into the rest period, and I am 
pleasantly surprised with how great this coffee tastes.  I drink a cup or two a 
day and I have enough to last most of this week.  That could be 20 days worth of 
beans out of this roast.  I plan to continue my normal coffee drinking pace.  I 
just can't resist the curiosity.
