If you replace the cone with a V60 03 (bigger cone), you can do a larger amount.

4:6 Method (Tetsu Kasuya)

2016 V60 winning recipe

40g coffee 600g water

  1. (00:00) Bloom with 100g, wait 45 seconds
  2. (00:45) Add next pulse (140g), wait 45 seconds
  3. (01:30) Add next pulse (120g), wait 45 seconds
  4. (02:15) Add next pulse (120g), wait 45 seconds
  5. (03:00) Add next pulse (120g), wait 45 seconds
  6. (03:30) Remove

The basic is 5 x 120g pours But tweak the pours slightly for sweetness (long second pour) or acidity (longer first pour). Last 3 pours affect the strength of the coffee - 4 x 90 instead of 3 x120 can increase. 2 x 180 would reduce.
