Yes, I use 70 grams of coffee to 1190 grams of water. And 1360 grams of water wont fit. 1200 grams of water Is pretty much max. So can I still use 1190 grams of water to 70 grams of coffee? I will grind finer to Increase the extraction but, I heard grinding finer will make the brew time longer because It takes longer for the water to go through the coffee versus a coarse grind the water passes through too quick. And Bunn uses "5 oz" Cup markings so, to them a full "8 cup" pot Is 40 ounces. As far as the coffeeless water test should I just use the plain 1190 grams of water?

I'm probably just nit picking here, but then wouldn't half a pot be four 5 oz cups?  Or 20 oz. instead of 30 oz.?

Thanks for finding me a ratio for half pot brewing lol I'll dial In a grind and hopefully drain right at 4 minutes for that. I'll run a full pot with just water and see where that ends up.

Well I grinded the coffee on setting "16" from the normal setting of "18" hoping to make the coffee drain slower and It still drains too quickly. Still need to do a water test though. The coffee had some what of a bitter taste, Or maybe It was the after taste of the soda I had just finished lol The coffee stops draining at 2:45 seconds almost. Too fast for me I think...Should I call the company? And If I'm using setting 18 for normal, what setting should I try for half pots of coffee?

Well I grinded on "16" when I was doing a full pot. But I know I will need to grind finer for half pot's of coffee. I wish I could find a way to change the brewer's delivery rate...

I mentioned previously that you can slow down the delivery rate by getting a small stainless disk and punch a hole in it smaller than the hole in the bottom of the basket.  That will slow the delivery rate of the coffee.  If you have food grade plastic that will take the heat of hot brew water that could be a good test.  However the stainless disk method I mention has already been used with success on your Bunn Phase Brew.
