Auto-drip is incredibly simple if you stick to the "common bits of info" list above. Keep in mind, you will need to do grind setting trials to find which setting is best for your drip brewing device. The most common issue with auto-drip brewing is the actual brewer is insufficient/unable to get the water to a proper brewing temperature, or it is not capable of spraying the water over the entire bed of grounds consistently. There are only a few home auto-drip brewers available that actually work properly. Do an online search to learn more.
