    Cold brew in one of those T2 iced tea jugs?

    Just wondering if anyone has tried making cold brew in one of those T2 iced tea Jugs? If so, how did it go?

    Good spotting MrVautin! I'd be interested to check it out.

    I like the fact those T2 jugs you mentioned have 1.2L and 2L. Another positive is the airtight lid locks in fresh. The down side which is likely is that the mesh for the infuser part will let out the ground coffee. Not a bad price either. Worth a look if you're nearby to one of their retail shops.

    After a bit more snooping I see the T2 jug is a rebranded Takeyausa product and they also make a cold brew coffee pot. Never know the mesh inserts might be good enough.

    I've just gone the other way on the weekend... I have two Hario Mizu Dashi pots. One I made up cold brew and the other worked well to make a (choc) mint infusion #freshfromthegarden. Makes up to 1L. Down side to these is that once you've made a batch with these brewers you should transfer it to some air tight glass bottle or wrap the top of the Hario.

    Nice! Thanks for the reply. I have literally no knowledge about cold but after watching a video advertising a cold brew setup I couldn't help but notice how similar it looked.

    Keen to try over Christmas, you never know it might go ok. Do you or anyone else have a coffee gramage to water ratio guide or reference websites?

    Hi mrvautin
    For that type of cold-steep arrangement I usually work on a 1:4 ratio - so 200g coffee to 800g water for example. Make sure you don't grind too fine, and allow 12-24 hours steeping time in the fridge before removing the basket

    Good luck!

    Legend! Thanks!

    Grinding 200g of beans should be fun with my OE hand grinder. Going to have a Popeye arm!

    Hi MrVautin. The Hario recipe base to start with is 80g coffee to 1L of water. Start with a brew at that ratio. Then adjust to your taste.
