I have been trying Scott Rao Hario V60 pourover this week. 1:17 and blooming with 2 parts water the first 45 seconds then splitting the rest into 2 pours. A little stirring is included. We like it.

My brew ratio is 1:17 (exactly 59.5 g/L). That's roughly 8.5g per 5-oz cup.

I'm looking to hire someone to teach/help me to find the best roast profile for the 3 types of coffee that grow on my farm in nicaragua. I live in LA, but but could go anywhere in so cal with my Behmor for a roasting lesson. Please contact me if you're in

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

Hairdryer heating element
Gullygossner
I notice there are a number of fluid bed builds that people use the heating element from a heat gun.

I pulled apart a hairdryer/blow dryer that I salvaged and the heating element doesn't look much different aside from maybe the inline thermostat.

Has anyone modified this type of element for a build?

The coils are typically 1500w to 1600w nichrome. They look nearly identical to a heat gun heating element and are quite ubiquitous at thrift stores so I figured they would make for a good donor. I just never see people mention using them, so I was wondering if there was something inherently different that made them a poor choice.
