Kindly tip on using the aeropress:
You should recieve a crap load of filters with your aeropress. I use those for my first couple of filter runs, before moving on to a slow qualitative filter. Early on, I used to use those aeropress filters sparingly… not anymore. They are very inexpensive.
You’ll discover that with the initial extract filter… if you allow gravity to do all the work (i.e. not using the aeropress plunger)… after about 100ml of extract, the filter will eventually get clogged and not allow more extract to pass through. Just change the stinking filter and keep going!
Your second aeropress filter run, with the whole batch, will go through much faster… even without using the plunger.
If you choose to use a slow qualitative filter for a final filter… if allowing gravity to do the work… expect a day or three for the extract to completely make it through the filter.
Using the aeropress plunger:
I have witnessed outright verbal wars in other forum venues, over whether or not to use the plunger…(i.e. forcing the extract through the filter). I couldn’t give a rats ass how you do it. Do it the way you want. I will NOT get into any discussions about using the stinking plunger during the filtering process.
And furthermore… if any NET heads here want to get into that topic… please, for the love of all that is just in this world… start a completely new thread on the matter so I can have the option of MUTING the topic!
