Posted Sun Mar 10, 2013, 1:38pm Subject: TDS vs. brew method
I have a perception, without doing any real side-by-side comparisons or rigorous testing, that different brew methods are quite distinct at a given TDS, and that ~1.3% TDS may not be desirable for all methods. For example, I find a high TDS more tolerable with pour-over than with siphon. Do any of you have similar experiences? Has the ~1.3% standard been researched across a variety of brewing methods?
