Re: Hi from SE Qld (Australia)

The drain mod is good for draining, but brilliant for the actual cleaning if it is pumped. You can recirc your cleaning fluid, (hose down) while scrubbing.

Makes clean up easy, and I am all for making life easy.

Re: Minimum amount of beer with standard BM50

Welcome aboard. The immediate answer is 25/26L is the smallest 'as is'. However there is a very easy mod. Drill a couple of holes somewhere just above halfway, this enables smaller brews. Then use silicone demijohn bungs for a full brew (bunged from the inside) This is detailed in a post on here som...

Re: Which grain mill?

Wheat malt ground into flour is really good. Gives the bread a softer chewy centre.

Re: Which grain mill?

Well, regarding taste… I am doing my own sourdough baking for years. Started with pre milled whole-grain-flour, and the taste was marvellous. Since I am using the SAMAP F100 and mill just before baking...... I bake all our bread. I use a KoMo mill for my specialist flours . I can say wheat malt rea...

Re: Which grain mill?

RichardM, I do wonder if any of these roller Mills can get close to a course gritty flour rather that just a crush.

Re: Which grain mill?

They certainly look the part. Significantly different from the rest of the 2rollers. Looking at the design I would have expected them to be slower/lower throughput. 5kg in 2 mins is good. I have long believed freshly crushed doesn't make a difference. So I do want to try and the chucks have given me...

How many bottles..

With the dawning of a new decade, thought it might be nice to have a stock take.

How many bottles (or kegs) do you have in stock after all the celebrations??

PS Fermenters don't count :D

Which grain mill?

I need to buy a grain mill. Can anyone advise a good one please, or what to look for? Ideally stainless, 10kg in 5 mins. Sits on a bucket, but I can build frame. BUT... I need it to do almost flour for chicken feed. And 1.2 mm crush I need for beer. Tbh chucks come first. Does the "DY-368 Electric G...

Re: Wash pump.

Thanks chaps. "Siphon Spray Wort Aerator" doh - I tried searching for all sorts to no avail.

I have high hopes* for it as a cleaning add on. It creates a good flow towards the elements, which is my cleaning target.

*bugger I said that about the pond pump too didn't I :D
