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

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.
