If you're pulse-pouring, there is essentially no limit to how much you can extend your brew times. I would try something like:

  1. Add 25g of water.
  2. At 0:45, add 75g of water.
  3. At 1:30, add 50g of water.
  4. At 2:15, add 50g of water.

Your total brew time will probably be around 2:30 - 2:45, which is (IMO) a reasonable brew time for a v60. If the cup tastes under-extracted, you can increase extraction by stirring one or more times.

Thanks Lee for the tip I will try that method!

If I'm brewing 200ml water 15g coffee for one cup for around 2 minutes how would I brew twice the amount?

Do I increase both the amount of coffee and brew time so, 30g for 4 minutes or do I simply double the coffee and still brew for the 2 minutes?

So I just posted a Hario video when I came across this thread....

When I first started out with the Hario 02 awhile back, I also had the problem of fast flow throughs....I knew my grind was right though because it was just a tad more coarse than what I use for Espresso. What I found REALLLLLY helped me out was to pour ONLY the amount I needed for that pour into my kettle. i.e. for my initial 50g bloom there is only 50g of water in the pouring kettle, next only 75g of water for my first pulse, etc.

Because the kettle was so light, I found that I was able to control my pours much better. Hope this helps!

Just got a Hario V60 02 and tried my first brew using the following settings:

16 oz water total
28 grams coffee on finest medium grind setting
2:30 total brew time (including bloom)

Product tasted a little odd, not even sure how to characterize it.  Maybe a little bitter/weak.

Any thoughts on what to tweak from here?  I'm thinking try a slightly finer grind tmw morning.

Any insight is much appreciated.

Yes, going finer sounds like a good plan.

Personally, I find that when brewing less than the designed volume from a brewer, I need to use more coffee per "cup". Most brewers are designed to operate properly at the full volume. For smaller batches, the cone shape and drain holes are a little big for reduced standard "formula" brews.

Grind a little finer and add a little more coffee.

Ground a little finer this morning with about the same results.  Still took about 2:30 total brew time.

Wayne - what water/coffee ratio do you use for Hario V60?

OK, so to slow the brew down, you can grind finer still and/or break up the pour into smaller stages...if you're adding all the water in one hit,  use 2 equal pours, or if using 2 equal pours try 3 pours...and so on. This will also help keep the slurry temperature up, whilst extracting more thoroughly for a given grind, as you use more pour stages. Just let the bed completely drain out after the last pour.

Yeah, I'm basically doing 2 or 3 separate pours as is.

Tried again this morning with a slightly finer grind, using new, fresh(er) coffee (same beans as before, just a new batch from the grocery).

Took about 2:45 for the entire bloom+pour and tasted quite a bit better, so I'm thinking some of what I was tasting may have been stale beans.

Should be getting a super fresh batch of beans today from my normal, local roaster, so will post thoughts on how those taste in a couple days.

Thanks for all the tips, appreciate the help.
