Its already there. just press all 4 buttons and the on switch at the same time  - then multiply the shown figure by 10 and you have the shots pulled - over 7 seconds thought.

some said here the computer starts to count when a pull reaches 7sec that is when it declares a shot - that will be counted until it says clean me

just a quick question

is 25-30sec your best pull time?
does this include the preinfusion meaning 0 to 30 in the shot time when it hits 2oz?

seems exact on the mark.
The exact weight / dose is depending / varying on the kind of coffee your using.
If you get 2 oz within 30 seconds and have crema & taste, your perfect ok.
The search fro perfection is over for you :-)

...until you try another coffee dispatch...

im still not getting the right taste, still a sting or astringent.
i narrowed down the degas stage, 7days 10days and 16days and still a sting
i tried 15g and 17g but still a sting
all of these are 30sec and hits 2oz

what could be the reason?

Under-extracted, a longer pull and/or higher temp will hit the spot.

You want to use an 18.8 - 19.2g dose in the Breville basket and go for a 38g extraction, more or less.

Sour is under-extracted, bitter is over extracted. Which ever way your shot is off, adjust duration and temperature accordingly.

19g fits the basket best. If you don't fill it enough, you can't tamp it correctly because of the shape of the basket.

Weight is a better guide than volume because of the froth.

The ability to dial-in the precise brew temp is the BDB's killer feature, don't forget to use it.
