Simplified Cold Brewing Method

If you don’t have a Toddy, but would like an inexpensive way to make your own cold brewed coffee, this simplified method may be perfect for you.

  • The coffee is measured into the glass.
  • A woman’s trouser sock is placed over the top, and the glass is inverted to fill the sock.
  • Tie the sock at the top, a simple loose half knot works for me.
  • Place the sock in the pitcher and add water.
  • When brewing is finished remove the sock and put the pitcher in the refrigerator.
  • The sock does not contain that much coffee so it doesn’t need to be wrung out, But you can try brewing another batch with the same sock.
