Grain mill?

Any discussion about non-specific Braumeister brewing techniques can be discussed here. E.g. "How to make a starter?", "What's the best way to store my grains?", "Which pH meter do you recommend?", ...

I'll bet you plan your trips well and make the most of them. It must take a lot of beer to drive there!
I wasn't planning on going for a run today but those cops came from nowhere!

Lucky YOU - Dicko and I have to drive 650km :(

Wow... If I drive 650 km, I'll be passing trough 3 different countries. I am sure mail order is the cheapest option for you.

No - I just wait til Dicko has to go for a drive to Adelaide and I get free freight on his return trip!!! :beer: - Cheers Dicko
The favour goes both ways though (if I do the drive)

The highlite of any road trip is to pick up brewing supplies.....work and visiting family are only an offshoot :lol:

If I was a bit younger I would open a brew shop in my own home town :lol: :roll: my wife would not be happy if I were to start a new business :roll:

Having friends that travel is very handy when you need brew ingredients :lol:

:cheers:

What is she going to do? Whine for a while and then accept it? You will be happy, brewers in your town will be happy and guess what... she will shut up sooner or later and be happy too. :beerbang:
Go for it!

That is a great job MattSR.

What is your hopper like? Have you made it yet?

Looks fantastic.
I have a Crankandstein 2S (I think).
A buddy of mine who owns a micro, Blacks of Kinsale, borrowed this when his mill went on the Fritz!

Thanks fellas!

It did take a long while to complete but I'm finally glad it's done. At the moment I haven't built a hopper, I'm still debating how to do it as it might be a bit of a pain doing it from sheet metal - which I haven't really done before. The motor is a Motion Dynamics combo motor/gearbox. It cost $140 and coms with everything except a power supply which I bought separately off eBay.

I got a cheap rate on the bulk grain, but I kinda regret it now as Ive had it sitting there for 2-3 months doing nothing while I finish off my Braumeister setup. Some mice got in an chewed into two sacks, so I transferred it all to plastic containers and cleaned out the shed with compressed air to remove any last grain remnants. I then found mice droppings on top of some cloths I have covering my kegerator, which I wasn't terribly happy about - I think they were attracted to the moisture coming off the taps, as the kegerator is empty and the taps have nozzle seals on them. In any case, the kegerator itself is clean so it's all good :)

Cheers,
Matt
