    Ever hear of bucketing?

    I find this method interesting and maybe useful for some of you...some cleaning and reduction prior to feeding a small sluice or whatever. https://www.researchgate.net/publica...27bucketing%27

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Not a new technique. I have used similar methods when necessary, as have many others.

    What does that mean?
    1.) Your actually heading out for coffee and will be back later?
    2.) The conversation is boring you and you need some stimulant to keep the lids open.

    I see that phrase mentioned here from time to time and can’t figure out if it’s intended to be an insult or not.

    I actually just put a pot of coffee on the stove..

    I'm just helping galenrog out IMAUDIGGER.

    "Time for more coffee" is galenrog's trademark signoff when he has said his piece. Obviously galenrog has had enough coffee that he forgot his signature phrase. I've always appreciated the finality of the phrase "Time for more coffee" so I was taking the opportunity to help out a fellow Tnetter and bask in the goodness of more coffee.

    Hope I didn't step on anybody's cord?

    Well when it's too late for more coffee it's a good time to start the mornings cold brew.

    Not too hard to do.
    Put some grinds in some water and soak it overnight.
    Strain it and warm it up on the stove.
    Good for a slightly different flavor from the same old grinds.
    Good luck.


    You could even use a bucket for mixing up this brew.

    Back in my railroading days we called that "Caboose Coffee", though I suppose on here it would be called "Prospectors Coffee".

    I do pretty much the same thing to break up clay and wash it off of gravel or the bedrock that I'm bustin up.

    Typically theres a good bit of water flowing next to the sluice and its what I'll use as the "fresh" water source.

    I don't bother when the material isn't sticky or from a more packed layer that needs it.

    Crappy coffee has gone by many names. Cowboy Coffee is another.
    One thing is for certain, even crappy coffee is probably pretty dang good if you have gone awhile without fresh coffee.

    I was reading that the practice in the remote areas was to place the coffee grounds directly in the pot, then boil.
    Every day you would add coffee grounds to it as a way of freshening up the old grounds.
    When the pot got full of grounds, you tossed it out and started over. That was a FRESH POT OF COFFEE.

    I sometimes perk a pot in the evening and just re-heat it the next morning. I only use grounds once.

    Free coffee is the best coffee, unless it is Starbucks. I won’t drink that even when the wife is buying.

    Back to bucketing. For those that are good at it, it is a much faster method of concentration than hand feeding a
    sluice. I think it was George Massie that told me, when I lived in beautiful downtown Fallbrook, California. But it may have been one of his buddies that hung out at GPAA when it was a storefront on Main St., Fallbrook.
