Are those water additives that people were posting about earlier designed to make the water slippy drippy

That's gotta be insanely bitter. I tried a friend's cold brew with a similar pre-ground bean and I barely could handle a sip, in fairness he hated it too and he just got a nice Mexican bean from a farmers market and them do a coarse grind on it from then on.

idk, I was raised on cheap garbage coffee for my whole life. Folgers, Walmart generic brand, what ever that poo poo is at Dennys. Kinda gotta weird thing for it and like it alot. Plus I always throw in some half & half and some vanilla syrup if I got any. All that poo-poo coffee really lets me enjoy an actual good cuppa joe. When I eventually get to a cafe or get some good rear end beans I can tell the difference night and day.


This probably explains alot of my choices for beer as well...

Folgers still smells insanely good when you first open the can. But that's about the only good thing about it and it only lasts like 10 seconds.

Did you put the ring burr back in correctly? That's the most common cause of an Encore/Virtuoso producing large grinds on all settings - the ring burr has a specific orientation and the colouring on one of the tabs rubs off over time, making it easy to put it back in the wrong way.

Yea. That's surely it but it still goes wrong no matter how much care I take. Oh well, moving on..

I'm looking for a way to make larger batches of cold brew; my current maker does ~32oz at once; and thats fine; but it was supposed to come out as a concentrate; but it really isnt (so I just drink it straight). And it just does not last. It's really draining to make a batch every other day or so.

So I need either a:
1) Bigger batch maker 2-3 liters at once
2) A maker that actually makes a better concentrate; I suspect the filter doesnt have enough surface area on this one (its pretty tight and vertical) but I'm not sure.

Any suggestions? Everything seems to be 1.0L in size at least at a cursory look

Have you tried the Toddy? It's meant to make concentrates. You should also try grinding finer and letting it steep longer before drinking.

You tell me I didn't build that?

I'll have you know I worked my fingers to the bone to get where I am today.


Most of the brewers I've seen on Amazon are about a litre capacity, a handful that are a little more but not much. I work at a coffee chain and when we did iced coffee high-capacity stores had the option of getting a Toddy cold brewer which has a bigger capacity and can be used to make a decent concentrate (and could probably have served us better than the six Hario jugs we had, those things are not designed for a working environment). There's one on Seattle Coffee Gear which seems to get decent enough reviews. Maybe it's on Amazon too. Doesn't seem to come with a lid, which is a bit daft. I'm sure people here have talked about just using a big container and a cloth filter, but I wouldn't know what to recommend or how much you should spend.

Edit: Well that's what I get for going to find a link, then getting distracted for fifteen minutes.

I have this and it works great for concentrate. It also filters everything really well without even needing a paper filter. I make it and brew for 12-24 hours and then dispose of the grounds and keep this in the fridge for a week and dilute it with water for drinking. Iíve seen it on sale for as low as $60 I think.

This is what I do but make sure you use a container with a wide mouth like a pitcher with a separate lid. I tried it with a huge mason jar with a spout and the wet grounds form a brick that won't fit back through the mouth of the jar without a lot of potentially messy trouble.

I use a 2L ball jar and then filter through a metal strainer and then paper melitta cones into smaller ball jars. Great concentrate.

I started out using the Filtron to make my cold brew and made large batches of concentrate. I stopped using it for several reasons (the filter pads, the awkward stopper in the bottom, etc.), but the main one was that the cold brew it made just tasted bad. I'm pretty sure it was because the large, open top allowed a lot of oxygen exposure during the brewing process. Similar designs, like the Toddy, probably have the same problem.

I actually switched to an Ovalware brewer that sounds very similar to what you have now. It's a bit of a pain to make a new batch every 2 days, but the quality is so much better IMO.

This is probably your best bet for a large volume of concentrate.
