I've been having a problem making cold brew over the last few months-it will sound strange, but here we go. I used to make cold brew all the time in my old apartment. I would use filtered tap water, and the recipe from NY Times Cooking (1/3 cup of beans to 12 oz. water), and would make it in my French press. I would usually get a fair amount of pressure when tamping down in the morning, and the cold brew was full-bodied and strong.
I moved in the spring (same city, so I don't think there has been any significant difference in the water quality), but whenever I have tried to make cold brew in the new place, it has turned out watery every time. There has been no pressure when I press down on the French press. I am so confused as to why this issue would pop up after a move-same equipment, similar beans, etc. Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be happening? (Am using coarse grind still, in a burr grinder...)
