    For a straight immersion (20min), yes around 25%. For the recipe stated earlier (2min steep, then drain under gravity, plunge at 4:30)...I dunno...there's flow for most of the brew, ~30g of weak drip through gets discarded, too complicated for me to work out the EY, hence for that recipe I just state the %TDS...which I don't usually like to do, but it doesn't really fit either convention.

    From reading some of the posts about steeping longer, I got to say its probably my firm favourite now:

    Inverted AP
    18grams of coffee to 250grams of water.
    Straight of the boil.
    10second stir.
    15mintue steep, perfect drinking temperature.
    Fine grind 1,3 on the Haus
    Filter coffee fan = Aeropress pre-workout / v60 for leisure

    Well as you all know I'm fairly new to the AP so I've been trying a few different ways. I had really expected long steeps to be quite strong and bitter but it's quite the reverse. I tried MWJB's RWU 14g, boiling water straight in, stir after 10, let gravity drain at 20, plunge the last little bit and stop before the hiss method, and although it had cooled a bit far for my liking, the sweetness and clarity compared with the 2 minute method blew me away.

    Tried brewing 20minutes this morning bit of a sour cup 15/250. Do you have to grind course for this to work?

    if it helps I used 1,3 on Haus if anyone uses them.

    No, grind fine.
