Brett....thanks for the input. I'll try the v. coarse route as you suggest but this raises the question of how long to brew with this grind? Bernard
Use more coffee than you expected to; take it off the heat once the water has been up north about 3.5 minutes... repeat and refine... Best, Brett On Nov 27, 2007 7:23 PM, Bernard Gerrard wrote: <Snip> -- Cheers, Bretthttp://homeroast.freeservers.com
Bernard, you are talking a vaccuum brewer right? Use a coarser grind if it is clogging / stalling. I have a bodum vac pot, though electric and that's what I do when it starts acting up. Make sure your filter/ screen is very clean too. As far as brew time, a minute or two once it hits top is sufficient. I believe you will have control over that, with an elec pot I really don't, the water runs up, after the bottom element runs just about dry, the power turns off,and the water comes back down south. In your case, play with the time to suit your taste once you get the grind where you like it. Do one thing at a time though, don't tweak a bunch of variables, because if something don't work you won't know what until you play again. Good luck. Bernard Gerrard wrote: <Snip>
