When it comes to immersion or siphon vacuum methods, you can fill these items with as much as needed for your brew. Dosage isn't as large of a variable with full immersion or siphon brewing. A neat fact about the Aeropress is that you can actually bypass the 25 gram limit by adding more water after your brew to get the desired full cup.
