Haha! I used to play World of Warcraft before I got wise. Then it was Guild Wars 2. Now I'm onto more adult things that I can drop at any given time, like SimCity.
So I tried GH's method. Very different, to say the least! I think it came out exactly as he describes. Here's what I came up with:
25g, ground two notches above press pot on the Bodum Bistro Burr 203º bloom, 38-seconds 403mL total (was going for 390, but was focusing on the level) 5:19 total brew time (including bloom) 298mL yield
The cup I got is very juicy, sweet, clean (always are), with little roasty flavours such as smoke, dark chocolate, etc. This is the roast that we are using, roasted on the 4th. Not much linger at all, lighter body. Aromas and flavours were less-distinguishable at hotter temp than after it had cooled down a bit.
I'm really not sure what to make of this method. My wife says it was bitter, had a bite. I agreed that it had a crisp bite, but definitely not bitter, despite having been in contact with water for over five minutes. Definitely missed the "darker" flavours that I have come to enjoy.
