Subject: Chemex. How related is grind size to batch size based on water poured through?
 

hi

Do I need a finger grind when making smaller batches?

I make three batch sizes. These are:

18g/300g using small chemex (1-3 cup)
36g/550g using chemex six cup
44g/710 using chemex six cup

i am going slightly courser than auto-drip (7P on vario-w with metal burrs)

My bloom is about 30 seconds. Brew time oncluding bloom in the small chemex can be as little as 2:10. the total time for my 36g/550g batch is about 3 minutes and the brew time for my 44g/710 batch is about 3:45 to 4:20.

Is this about right or should i vary grind size by batch size?

Thanks

Jay
