for a good couple of months i’ve had a thought in my head that i never got round to testing due to lack of apparatus to record data, so i thought i’d throw out in the open to see if anyone else has thought the same.
Grinding frozen beans gives you colder grinds than grinding below/at room temp beans would, and therefore the temp loss when your brew water contacts the grinds will be larger, and will take longer to get to the equal heat, or close to it. And as far as my knowledge goes it means the brew will extracted unevenly for longer.
So it made me think about heating the grinds up, which in theory will make the temperature loss be smaller, and will shortern the time it takes to reach a temp equilibrium, which lead to a higher and more even extraction.
But as mentioned, never actually tested it out due to lack of logging equipment, and how to heat the grinds up in the first place (hair dryer?).
Any response is welcome,
thanks in advance
