Do you time your extractions? Do you know what role time plays in your brew recipe and dialing in the perfect extraction?
If you're not quite sure where time fits into the equation when trying to brew the perfect extraction then hopefully this video tutorial has the answers for you. In this video Luke explains how time is one of the three main components of a brew recipe with the other two being DOSE and YIELD.
In this video Luke is using the La Marzocco GB5 x which has in built scales and shot timer however if you don't have access to this kind of equipment then there are other alternatives. These would include Acaia Lunar Scales that Luke talks about in the video. These can not only time your shots but they can weigh the extracted yield at the same time. Otherwise just timing on a simple stopwatch will do the trick.
We hope you enjoy the video and learn a thing or two about timing your extractions. Please leave us a comment with your own ideas or questions about the process.
