Trying to dial in my new Breville Smart Grinder for my Moccamaster without much success. For the users of the same set-up, what do you have it set to?

It produces roughly 55g of grind when set to 8 cups (1l), which seems more or less spot on. When I play with grind size, I get either very sour brew (underextracted?) or very bitter brew. I just can't seem to nail it. Tried 4 different kinds of beans, from light to dark roast, all same result.

I just got my Breville today, and will start playing with it for my Technivorm in the morning.  I'll let you know what I come up with.

Any luck yet? I use a variety of brewing methods and have had to experiment with my Smart Grinder. But, once I find the sweet spot for each method, it's easy to repeat. If you suspect you aren't getting proper extraction and don't want to modify your brewing technique then I would try a finer grind. Experiment by grinding one notch finer, brew, taste, repeat if not satisfied.

If it you still can't solve the flavor problem with grinding then I would try altering brewing technique.
