Thanks for posting your French Press recipe. We're taking our Nissan 34 oz stainless french press with us for a weekend camping trip. I going to give the additional filter optional try. Looks interesting and less fines makes everyone happier. Take care!
The pathologically precise are annoying, but right!

thanks for sharing your methods, Steve.
I have always used my Aeropress in the way Alan intended, but today, I decided to try your inversion parameters. I forgot my thermometer in my office (I'm at a different site today, but had some notes for microwave time where I'm at today, from a previous brew, and figure I was about in the right ballpark.
I was wondering what Lido setting you use for your AP? I noticed in your discussion, you mentioned it hasn't seemed to matter much, but I'm still curious. I had mine set at 1 today. The cup was pretty nice, rather earthy (I brewed a Guatemalan Bella Carmona I got from Red Bird). 35g dose, for about 300-325 ml water (total). (I held the pitcher up in the air and didn't let the meniscus stop rocking, then spilled a small amount.) I typically add raw sugar cubes to my press methods (and agave to my 'spro when I sweeten it)...but alas, I forgot that today too. Bitters seemed low to me, though I wouldn't consider myself an expert taster by any measure.
. Always remember the most important thing is what ends up in your cup!
