SOURCE: How many ounces or cups

For a half gallon of brewed coffee you should start with a "volume" measure of 10 oz. The reason I recommend a volume measure is because the weight could be completely different using light roast or dark roast coffees. Brewing by volume you can have consistency throughout. The main object is to have the same surface area of grounds for your brewing. The 10 oz. volume should equal between 3.75 and 4.25 ounces by weight. Adjust by taste to your palette but don't sway too low in amount of grounds, otherwise you will stand to "over-extract" and your coffee will taste bitter and will have no body or mouth-feel.

No pot or instructions, how much water do you put in the coffee pot?Need a replacement pot for vp17 series. thank you


You should be able to pick up a replacement/new pot at your nearest Restaurant Supply store. Make sure you get a 64 oz./ 1/2 gallon pot.
Before plugging in your brewer, unscrew the sprayhead located just above where the filter basket sits and replace the basket, pour 3 pots of cold water through the opening on the top if the brewer is empty. This brewer has a reservoir that holds about 2 1/2 pots of water at brewing temperature when heated. Make sure you put an empty pot under the filter basket after pouring in the water. Water will flow from the brew basket when the reservoir has reached its capacity. Once water flows you can then plug in and energize your brewer and replace the sprayhead. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for the brewer to reach brew temp, you will hear the heating stop. Put an empty filter and a dose of coffee (I recommend starting with a heaping measuring cup of drip ground coffee) into the filter basket, lightly shake it level, replace the basket and pour through 1 full pot of COLD water in the top. For best results pour the brewed coffee into a pre-heated thermal server if you plan on holding the coffee for more than 10 minutes or so.
Enjoy!

How many tablespoons of ground coffee are needed per cup of water in the Smart Brew coffee maker?


For ground coffee, use 1-1/2 (one and one-half) tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

For whole bean coffee, use two tablespoons of beans per 6 ounces of water.

Coffee strength is a very personal preference, so use these numbers as a guideline for middle-of-the-road coffee, and adjust to make the coffee that you like to drink.

Proper amount of coffee grounds for 36 cups


The nice thing about standards is that there are so many of them!

The West Bend parts page for this model is here, and there's a link to download the manual. You can see what the manufacturer recommends.

I do coffee by weight. The ratio of 10 grams of coffee for 6 ounces of water seems most common if you look at coffee websites. Make a couple of cups worth, try different amounts, and then scale up to a full pot when you find what works best for you.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!
