I just tried 16g with around 27g out in 27 seconds & it was much less intense. Definitely something I'd like to work on.
@SandraF, so far, I haven't ground it fine enough to get that kind of ratio.

I'm getting about 2:1 (32g) in about 23-27 seconds, including 2 second of pre-infusion. My timing isn't first drip to last, it's "begin pre-infusion" to brew stop. I tried once an even finer grind, but it apparently channeled. I only make two or three shots a day, so this experimentation takes a week or two.
