Does anyone have suggestions for grinder starting points when making coffee in a siphon pot (vac pot)? I have a Rocky Doserless (settings from 0-55) and I know the grind setting is supposed to be a medium/fine grind. I was thinking of starting at around 25. Does anyone have experience making coffee in a siphon pot with a Rocky grinder? Thank you!

UH, Rocky is an espresso grinder and in today's market, a very bottom starter grinder due to the large steps.
I grind my vac pot slightly more coarse than a commercial auto drip grind so that is a place to start, as Rocky is designed for espresso, the grind is different than what a more general purpose gringer will give.
