Hello... I have been 'lurking in the shadows' for the past while learning from all of you some of the finer tips on home roasting. What a terrific group. Thanks to all of your for your info and insight.
My question that has prompted me to finally post... I am roasting with a FreshRoast SR500 I also have a Behmor. I have been roasting for over 1 year and have several hundred roasts behind me. Most were ok. Recently I am finding that the roasts with the FreshRoast have a sour smell - am I 'over roasting'? I am hitting 2nd crack - if I stop too early then the roast seems under-roasted - with no taste. It does not seem to matter the bean.
Thanks in advance. Cheers, Sheila.
