Posted Sun Sep 15, 2013, 4:33pm Subject: Anyone had success brewing two full cups (480ml) at a time with Hario Woodneck?
So I'm very very happy with my woodneck/nel drip/sockpot what-have-you. I've gotten down a brew method really consistent for making an amazing single 240ml cup using 18grams of coffee, the standard I've seen recommended just about everywhere by those with serious experience with the device.
However excited to utilize that I own the "3 cup" 480ml size device, I'm finally trying to brew 480 so my wife and I both can enjoy from the same batch and I won't have to do the process twice. Based on comments from Sam21 I found on this forum I tried simply doubling the coffee to 36grams and doing everything else the same, and was not happy with the results. I found it weaker and crazy notes of my ethiopian were not very present.
Anyone have tips for brewing larger volumes? What should I be altering, maybe adjusting the grind or perhaps this brew method just doesn't do well with that much coffee at a time?
