Topic: Cory rod stall in vac pot (6 msgs / 85 lines)
1) From: Seth Grandeau
I bought a cory rod on ebay and tried it out for the first time this
morning.  Well, now I know what everyone was talking about with stalls.  I
ground for my normal drip setting.  Water flowed up nicely, no movement of
the rod.  When I moved it off the stove and it went into vacuum mode, it
just stopped.  I can see some bubbles of coffee desend, but it was a drop at
a time.  I tried moving the rod and stirring up the grounds, but not much
action.  After 15 minutes and burned fingers, I finally got enough of a gap
to get the coffee flowing downward.  Needless to say, my morning cup is a
bit over extracted.  I'm going to try a coarser grind, but this may just be
the sign to buy a better grinder...

Seth, what kind of grinder are you using?  Also, what's the consensus as to
cause of the stall?  Is it fines?  Thanks for the report.  Sorry the coffee
was over-extracted.bill

It shouldn't take too much work to get the grind dialed in. Once you do, the
rewards will be evident.
The most used brewer in my house is a Silex vacpot with Cory rod.
cheers,
Scott

I'm using a Baratza Maestro.  I do get fines in my grounds, though I had not
noticed them being a problem until now.  Previously, when using the cloth
filter, the flow was great and no fines/dust made it down to the bottom pot.

the cloth filter would filter out the fines.  have you replaced the burrs
recently?  I did that a week ago with the Maestro Plus.  I still get fines
in my FP, but a lot fewer fines...  you can order them from baratza for only
20 bucks for a set...bill

I've only run 20 or 30 lbs through it, and most of it was drip ground, not
espresso.  I wouldn't think it needed to be replaced yet, but for only $20,
it may be worth a try, before buying a Rocky. :)
