When the indicator light comes on after its cold, I will touch the PF to make sure it's hot, but it usually isn't and needs to be brought up to the same temp as the group head. So I'll run brew water through the PF until it is hot. Should be good to go after that.Armanius wrote:Thank you. I increased the dose from 18g to 19g using the same beans, and the pressure kicked up to 10 and then dropped to about 8. Got about 29.5g yield in 30s total time. Shot came out acceptable.
How long do you wait until you start your first shot after turning BDB on? The lights indicate ready fairly fast.
If I were you, I'd slightly increase grind size. With that darker roast stuff you're using, you definitely don't need it to brew for 30 sec. I'd stay somewhere around 20-25.
Hope this helps!
