  • Toddy set-up help

    Hi everyone. I recently bought a Toddy and am wondering if someone can help me with the set-up etc. I have a Breville Smart Grinder 820 for grinding my beans.

    The questions I have are:
    what grind setting/number should I use on my 820?
    what is the best bean to water ratio for brewing, I currently use 250g beans to 1 litre water.
    what steep time should I use, and do I steep on the bench or put it in the fridge?
    what concentrate to water/milk ratios should I use for drinking?
    are there any good beans I should try?

    I also read somewhere to use filtered water not tap water. Is any bought bottled water suitably filtered, or do I look for something specific?

    Thanks for the help, I am largely looking for a point in the right direction so to speak.

    Don't know, I don't own a 820. The grind should be a little coarser than filter/plunger.

    what is the best bean to water ratio for brewing, I currently use 250g beans to 1 litre water.
    I use 330-350g to 1500ml. But there is no "best", more coffee the stronger the flavour.

    what steep time should I use, and do I steep on the bench or put it in the fridge?
    Bench. 8-12 hours. The longer the stronger the bitter. The shorter the weaker but less bitter.

    what concentrate to water/milk ratios should I use for drinking?
    1:3 for strong 1:5 for weak. But play around with that and find what you like.

    are there any good beans I should try?
    Lighter roasts, African are my favourite but I only drink it black. Again play around and see what you like.

    I also read somewhere to use filtered water not tap water. Is any bought bottled water suitably filtered, or do I look for something specific?
    Tap water may add unwanted flavour hence filtered. I know some that use still mineral water to add flavour.
