When your wife thinks 30 grams for a 6 cup setting is strong, you learn to drink muddy water when you are making coffee for both of you.

I use a rule of thumb of 60 grams per liter. 8 cups (1 liter, 32 oz) = 60 grams, 6 cups (3/4 liter, 24 oz) = 45 grams. 10 cups = 75 grams 12 cups = 90 grams

OldMan41, depends what is "a pot"... usually is more accurate to specify the brew ratio, instead grams of coffee. The most usual is 1:15, thus 40 grams for 600 ml of water. If the 100 grams are for one liter pot, then we are talking about 1:10 ratio.

Hey! I looked into how many grams per pot of coffee. WOW! 100grams? I only use 40+ish. Anybody else???

Thanks JackH. Just have so many other projects going, haven't taken the time to get on here. From time to time I would just glance and see what was going on.

thermometer placement (hot air popper)
tag1260
Here goes. I see a couple of ways to mount a thermometer in a hot air popper roaster. I don't use the cover on mine so the other alternative that I see is to drill into the side of the popper and put it through there. With going through the metal side of the chamber, will you register the bean temp or the side metal of the chamber?

Thanks

With a thermocouple, the temperature will be read at the junction of the dissimilar metals (the tip of the thermocouple generally).

With a hot air popper that has the openings creating a swirling effect,you want to place the tip of the thermocouple towards the center of the popper and in the bean mass to try and avoid as much of the air movement if your goal is bean temperature.

Thanks. So, if I do go through the side, as long as I go into the center with the tip I should be OK?

Not good, if the tip is in the bottom, will be in direct blow of the hot air slots.
Especially after dry ends, the whole bed of beans start floating, if airflow is not reduced, and in the bottom is nothing else than hot air, even 1 cm height.
A better location is 1-2 cm under the surface of still beans.
