These things look like they come straight out of an Alchemists lab. Is this a bit extreme in reality? I know it looks cool, but is it worth it? If anyone actually owns one of these and wants to break down the advantages, I would love to hear them. I think this falls into the category of really cool to read about, but not all that practical.

Subject: Yama style on the cheap.  -- Re: How to Brew Ice Drip Coffee
 

After returning from Coffee Fest Chicago this year and trying cold brewed coffees from the Yama and Toddy, I thought I would try my hand at cold brew.  After seeing the fancy expensive stuff, i knew that I could do better and cheaper.

After a trip to WalMart, I returned with my wallet under $40 lighter and got all the parts necessary for 2 cold brew setups, I was ready to go.  One will make 1.5 liters of concentrate and the other 3 liters.

In less than the time for some super glue to dry, I was making my first cold brew.

Now I am hooked.  It makes smoother, milder, and lower acidity coffee and is rather fun to make as long as I have 12 hours or so to wait.  I can live with that.

I prefer the long drip times.  It makes a more consistant coffee.  Toddy was acceptable and easier to make but lacks much of the detail in the long drip methods.

Pictures available if you want them.  I bet most of you spent way more, (even for the buckets).

PS I do love other extraction methods for different reasons.  I own a commercial espresso machine, use pour over, and other methods.  All used for different reasons.  Cold brew is great for extracting stale, old ground, and just unacceptable for other brew method coffees.  Consider cold brew for coffee mistakes.  Either roasting mistakes or other waste coffee.  You will be surprised.
