How to brew a cold brew concentrate using the Toddy Cold Brew Coffee Maker. This method allows you to dilute the brewed coffee with water, milk and a whole host of other ingredients.
Wet the filter and insert it into the groove inside the brewer. Don't forget to insert the plug in the bottom.
(Optional, but recommended) Add the paper filter bag to the brewer. The brewer will work without this, but it helps to extract more from the coffee, and makes clean up a whole lot easier.
Grind the coffee coarse (between filter & french press / plunger) and add to the brewer
Pour filtered water over the grounds, try to wet them as evenly as possible. If you're using the paper filter bag stir the coffee to make sure the grounds are completely wet. If you're not using the bag, don't stir the coffee as the fine grinds can block the smaller filter - just pat any dry grounds you can see with the back of a spoon.
Cover the brewer and leave to brew at room temperature for 20-24 hours
The next day, remove the plug and place on the decanter to drain. Add the airtight lid and store in the fridge for up to 14 days.
