Here was the finished brew. It had filled up to the 2qt (liquid mark) when I first brewed, but I don’t usually put enough coffee to make it strong enough. If wanting it right away than can put ice in after it has cooled down some. I just usually put it in the fridge to get cold. I also added water to fill it all the way to the 3qt (ice mark). I had already poured a cup when I took the picture.
