Topic: AP Proportions (5 msgs / 160 lines)
1) From: Jason Brooks
I noticed the thread on vacation coffee.  I'm prepping on an extended
weekend road trip and will likely take the AP, though maybe the SS FP.
I've found that for most coffees, 44 grams per 32 oz of coffee gives a
good flavor.  I've had to take it to 60 grams for the Chemex.  What about
the AP?  I've not played very much with it, so I'm wondering what would be
the 'ideal' proportions to vac seal up.  If possible, I may try and
experiment, but I don't have much time.  Experience appreciated!
Suggestions?
Jason

for drip type coffee, i use 22 grams to result in about 10 ounces, 
then adjust it with a little hot water if it seems too strong. I am 
not sure what other people do - the grind for this is basically a 
drip grind toward the finer end of things. I used to use much less 
water and make more of an extract, then add more hot water. Not I 
basically fill it once, stir, add more hot water, put the plunger in 
the top to keep it from dripping/draining, leave it about 1 minute, 
then plunge.

Do you leave any air space at the top? I find that it seems to plunge  
better if I have an air space to pressurize instead of pushing on the  
column of liquid.
Oh, and don't forget to wet the plunger. I hadn't thought of putting  
the plunger in to keep it from dripping while it infuses, but it  
makes sense!

Yes, I definitely try to maintain some air space. The mthod below is 
just my fast way to make a weekend cup, and I think the results are 
pretty true to the well-brewed drip cup. But most of my weekend 
coffee is from a Yama with a Cona glass rod

Thanks Tom.  Sounds like several 22 gram vac sealed pouches would be
good. I usually have about 32 oz per day, so that sounds reasonable.
Thanks,
Jason
