Subject: BS: How do you perc 1/2 pot of coffee?
Hi there folkies, Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays. I am throwing out a culinary question to you mudcats, as I always have had good luck with this type of request before. ( Some of you may even remember my last year's request for cooking a behemoth sized turkey; worked out deliciously well. )
Well, I have a glass stovetop perculator that I am very happy with. I always make a full pot of coffee, but need to know how to make a half pot; not sure if it will turn out ok if there's only a half pot of water to start with. Oh, and it's not that I' m cutting back on my coffee consumption - but in the rush to get some last minute shopping done, I forgot to buy a new batch of coffee. Only have half a pot's worth left.

Anyone else perc their coffee? Have you ever made a half pot? And how did it come out? Or did it? My fear is that the low
volume of water in the perculator won't even reach up to the basket to brew.

Not an earthshaking topic for advice, I know, but perhaps a diversion like this will keep our minds off the earthshaking topics that already exist ( and threaten the celebratory conversations at dinner tables all over the planet) A diversion that lasts , one hopes, at least through the New Year. And have a Happy one of those too.
