Cold brew

At my daughters the other day and she mentioned that she drinks cold brew every morning. She is a fuel truck driver. I asked how she made it and she showed me and gave me a sample. It was delicious! So I ordered the gallon jug with the coffee grounds cage. When I read the directions that said to fill the cage with 14 ounces of coffee I was surprised to say the least. This seemed like a lot of coffee. Is this the amount that everyone uses? Is this normal?

I typically recommend 12oz coffee per gallon of water... keep in mind that's a bit too personal preference. Most people find 12/gallon a little strong so you may want to start a little lighter than 14 oz to start.
