Yeah, I way overdid it with the coffee. I just tasted like cold black coffee.
Age did not fade it.
If I were to brew this again, I'd probably cut it back to a quarter pound or so.

When you mentioned a jackshaft, I pictured a 2 belt system with 4 sheaves. A double stepdown system.
That would have been overkill. :D

I think a jackshaft may be overkill with the small speed reduction I'm doing here.

I mean within a day.
