V60: Drip or Immersion on VST Coffee Tools?

 

Drip, dah! Obvious right? well maybe not.

If you are using a “traditional” technique that calls for staged pours, maybe 50g at a time, then Drip setting will give you the most accurate EXT %. However things are a little more complicated in my experience if you are using a technique advocated by Scott Rao and the likes of Matt Perger (watch video here). This technique in contras involves a small “pre wet” followed by the rest of the water dispensed in one complete pour.

Why the difference?

Well it all comes down to assumptions the app makes regarding the nature of the liquid retained by the coffee bed. With traditional drip coffee, fresh water is always passing through the bed and if one was to measure the liquid coming out of a V60 at the end of a brew, say the last 10g, it would have a very low TDS. It can be assumed then that the liquid retained by the bed is just water and can be discounted. Any calculations need only take into account the Dissolved Solids in the cup.

In a full immersion brew, lets take a plunger, after 5 minutes if one was to pour out the plunger and take a measurement, we’d have to consider not only the liquid in the cup but also the liquid retained by the bed. Why? Well, because the grounds were in contact with the brewed coffee so the liquid in the bed would be saturated with the same amount of dissolved solids (as a %) as the cup.

Lets break this down and take a look at the maths behind the VST App. Below is an example of a V60 using Drip and a Plunger using Immersion. The Liquid Retained Ratio (LRR) is left as the app default, C02 and MOIST are “0” to make the math simpler for this demonstration.

VST APPS for Android
Presets: LRR = Default, CO2=0, MOIST=0
V60
Dose (g) 12 From Scale
Beverage Weight (g) 200 From Scale
Cup
TDS % 1.25% Refractometer
TDS (g) 2.50 1.25% x 200g
EXT % 20.83% 2.5g/12g
Liquid Retained
Liquid Retained Ratio 2.10 Assumed by App
Liquid Retained (g) 25 2.1 x 12g
TDS% of LR 0.00% Assumed by App
TDS (g) of LR 0.0000 1.25% x 30g
EXT% 0.00% 0g/12g
Combined TDS (g) 2.50 2.5g + 0g
Total EXT% 20.83% 20.83%+0%
PLUNGER
Dose (g) 12 From Scale
Beverage Weight (g) 200 From Scale
Cup
TDS % 1.25% Refractometer
TDS (g) 2.50 1.25% x 200g
EXT % 20.83% 2.5g/12g
Liquid Retained
Liquid Retained Ratio 2.50 Assumed by App
Liquid Retained (g) 30 2.5 x 12g
TDS% of LR 1.25% Assumed by App
TDS (g) of LR 0.375 1.25% x 30g
EXT % 3.13% 0.375g/12g
Combined TDS (g) 2.875 2.5g + 0.375g
Total EXT % 23.96% 2.875g/12g
So back to the “Rao Method”*, in recent experiments it was found that the liquid that is coming out at the end of the V60 is of a concentration very near to the concentration of the cup. Here is an example of our readings below.

RAO METHOD
Dose (g) 12
Beverage Weight (g) 200
Cup
TDS % 1.25%
TDS (g) 2.50
EXT % 20.83%
Liquid Retained
Liquid Retained Ratio 2.50
Liquid Retained (g) 30
TDS% of LR 1.02%
TDS (g) of LR 0.306
EXT % 2.55%
Combined TDS (g) 2.806
Total EXT % 23.38%
This means we are much closer to immersion than drip ie 23.38 compared to 23.96.
So what now? Well we can hack the system slightly by adjusting the LRR. If we run a liquid retained ration of 2.04 it will give us the same reading we get manually so or our particular method it gives us an accurate indication of the Extraction Yield**.
Has anyone else had conflicting experience? Feel free to question my numbers, happy to be shown i’m wrong if that happens to be the case.
*My name not his

** How does this work? The TDS of the liquid retained in our V60 was 0.306g rather than 0.375g on the Immersion example. This is 81.6% (0.306/0.375g*100). So if we can take the default Liquid Retained Ratio of  2.5 for Immersion and scale it down to 81.6% of its value we get 2.04. So if we adjust the LRR to 2.04 instead of 2.5 on Immersion, this will do the job of tricking the app to say the bed now only retains 0.306g of coffee.

    Gameplay Wheel of Fortune is a show that’s better suited to game adaptation than some witness the disaster that is Family Feud, although it’s still more unwieldy than something like a traditional quiz show.As you’d expect, the game progresses just like the show, as you spin, buy vowels, guess at the puzzles, and hopefully win thousands of dollars, fabulous prizes, and so forth.The special conditions for late games and the bonus round are also intact as well as the progressively more valuable spaces on the board, and they’re tweaked a little to make them more friendly in the game context.For example, the time limit to guess the answer in the final round is suspended a bit to take into account the fact that you have to type the whole thing in with the little keyboard GUI.The single player game is filled with the inevitable downtime.Miss your turn due to thickheadedness or an unlucky spin and it takes a while to work through the other two players’ turns.It helps to play this game while you have something else to occupy your time with I found it a decent enough distraction in between bouts of real work.In multiplayer games, the interface is smooth, and the game doesn’t waste too much time inflicting Vanna on you.If you’re all alone, though, you can always try the test mode, wherein a la Jeopardy you can take the test given to prospective Wheel contestants, which is fun in an “if only” sort of way.
