Hey there, it's Ragan from Prima Coffee and today we are checking out the ALTO Commercial Cold Brew Starter Kit. The ALTO is ultimately just a 7-gallon graduated plastic bucket with a spigot. It comes with a plastic strainer that comes in handy when it's time to [inaudible] the coffee. You can place this on top of the bucket and then place your filter and all of the remaining coffee will drain down. It also comes with a plastic lid. And because it is a starter kit, it comes with everything you need including two packs of 50 filters. These filters are sturdy. They are made out of a paper and polyester blend, so they're really hard to tear and you don't have to worry about them becoming weak and breaking while you are brewing. It also comes with 100 plastic cable ties or zip ties, and these are used to tie up the top of the filter so you don't have to worry about the grounds spilling out. And it also includes the ALTO Cold Brew guide, and it's just a brew guide on howv to use this, all right? So I'll show you how to use it. We have 5 pounds of coarsely ground coffee in the filter, and we're going to begin by putting it in the bucket and wrapping the filter around the lid. This is where we're going to do a preinfusion. It's a two-person job. Okay. All right. And we're going to take a stir or a spoon and really saturate these grounds. Okay. And then we are going to tie it off with the cable tie. Okay. Nice and tight. This way, you don't have to worry about the grounds spilling out. And then we're going to just pour the rest of the water in. And with 5 pounds of coffee, you'll use about 6 gallons of water. All right, and once that's done, we will put the lid on and we are going to wait somewhere between 16 and 24 hours. And then it should be ready. Okay, so we are back 24 hours later. Our brew is complete. And at this point, you're going to want to grab a buddy because this is definitely a two-person job. So, first, we're going to remove the lid and Ryan here is going to remove the filter from the bucket and I'm going to place the strainer perched on top of the bucket. All right. And this doing so will allow the rest of it to drain. We did brew at a 1 to 10 ratio and now we are going to dilute at a 1 to 0.5 dilution. So we have a graduated container here. We're going to open the spigot. We're going to pour 1 liter of coffee in here. And like I said, we're going to dilute at a 1 to 0.5 ratio. So by going to the 1-liter mark, we're going to pour water up to 1.5 liters. So now we're going to dilute it all the way up to the 1.5-liter line. And at this point, it is ready to serve over ice. That's good cold brew. So this is the ALTO Commercial Cold Brew Starter Kit. It's a strong contender against other commercial cold brew kits in terms of value, and you can find it online at Thanks for watching.
