Sorry, didn't mean to create a support problem.  Love the machine.  Thanks for the response.

No problem, it's all a part of the gig. I actually enjoy jumping in when time allows. It beats the hell out of doing paperwork or dealing with management ---p.

Heres the same promise I've made on all our products. We will make mistakes to include misdiagnosing issues, but we will always do our best and in the end rectify the problem. It's what I'd expect as a customer.

 
REMINDER: Never leave the roaster unattended when in use !!   And remember to use our Rosetta Stone tip PART V PARAGRAPH 3.. it works !!!

Salt- talking with a chemist, salt raises the boiling point.

In tests a 30% salt solution raised boiling point appx 3F and obviously the coffee undrinkable! This was in fact part of our R&D process for the calibration equations.

Should have come here first.  I was helping my daughter the other day with her science experiment on how salts change the boiling point of water.  She found KCL to increase the boiling point the most compared to table salt and epsom salts.

Well I haven't seen this question posed before but I've wondered a little why the automatic pulse brew program isn't customizable.  I suppose it wouldn't make a difference?  The standard auto brew cycle seems to run about 6 minutes and gets quite a bit out of the coffee.

Anyway I'm going to start experimenting with manual release tomorrow, to push the water through a little more quickly.  Maybe 25 s pour / 15 s wait something like that to start.

An observation for me on this issue....its doesn't always leave water but does most of the time. When I push through manually the water does fully empty. Still gives me enough for a cup (brewed) when I make 600ml so I'm good but just need to push through the water on a 900ml brew to get that second cup etc...

try.. 15 release for pre-soak, 45 wait, then 20 open and 15 closed for 4 cycles then open to finish

The above worked great with a med grind and 6 day old roast... just have to be careful not too fine of grind so you don't get overflow

Thus each time you calibrate...

Posted January 3, 2013 link

How often should a Brazen be calibrated?

Thanks, Rob.

Joe, thanks I will give that a try.

Rob, in the manual it says to calibrate every 6 months.

Adam, assuming I understand you correctly.  If I were in your situation I would descale the system, just to see if that helped.  Have you done that already?  There are a couple options to clean it out in the manual (I just happened to be looking at it).  Page 6.

I will try descaling (haven't yet) to confirm if that is something I can rule out. Either way, the Brazen still continues to provide the best cup of coffee on the planet :)

I tried Joe's suggested 20 open / 15 closed routine with manual release, and it was really good, a little less taste than the automatic program, and seemed sweeter and juicier.
