Cold Brewing Coffee Without the Toddy?

Pei | Jun 28, 200604:21 AM     39

Has anyone tried this? There's no way I'm going out and buying another coffee making contraption, but I thought I could do the following:

-grind a pound of coffee to a fine espresso grind
-place in a glass jar with the amount of cold water specified on Toddy's website (8 cups? I forget)
-refrigerate overnight to cold brew
-slowly filter out the coffee grounds. I have a plastic manual drip that sits over a mug and am willing to filter batches of the cold coffee using more than one filter if necessary

It sounds good to me, but does anyone know if it will work for sure? The allure of having coffee concentrate that won't go bad for two weeks is appealing. I don't usually finish even half a pound of coffee in a week, and every day as the flavor deteriorates I find myself wanting to drink it less.
