Extractions & Distractions: Ideal Batch Size

I find that it is more that each brewing device has ideal upper and lower batch size limits — i.e. a range of batch sizes — where, try as one might, go above or below it, and you are not going to get a good cup(s) out of it.

This is a topic rife for exploration.
