Sixth - don't be afraid to break the rules.
The OP mentions that he has a Rocky, but I use only a whirly blade grinder
(that's all I have, all I can afford, but I'm blissfully happy since I don't
know any other way), and I also don't use a coarse grind (the whirly's can't
do coarse, basically). My Chemex gives me a terrific cup (as does the French
I think Tom wrote somewhere (don't know if it's on the SM site, or if it was
a post here) that the Chemex is very forgiving - that it is possible to use
a finer grind and still get a good cup).
Previous discussions did mention that if one is going to make a full pot, as
opposed to one or two cups (for me, it's mug-sized cups), it's better to
make sure your grind is not too fine.
Best thing, IMO, is to try different methods, until you get the results that
you are satisfied with.
