Posted Wed May 16, 2012, 12:43pm Subject: Re: Brew Ratio and VST Refractometer Measurement
I like this, but I don't fully understand it. Where to start? Hmm, how about here: let's say I hold brew ratio constant at 6.25 (which corresponds to a 1:16 coffee-to-water ratio). Comparing both charts--which I'm not at all sure is kosher to do--it appears I'll get a stronger cup in terms of % TDS at 20% extraction using a percolation method than I would using an immersion method (~1.4% vs. ~1.2%, respectively). Is that right? Seems counterintuitive. Feel free to set me straight! ;)
