Default UPS just arrived!

...and would you look at what he dropped off at my front door!

I'll be breaking it in tomorrow with 25 lbs of Marris Otter and another 5 lbs in specialty grains.

For those of you that have The Barley Crusher, anything I should know?

Why did you order a pic of Bogie ???

Kidding - really nice. You should really enjoy it, plus you'll pay for it by being able to order sacks of whole, instead of pounds of crushed.

So, I have to ask, where did you have to move the bed in order to fit that in your house?

After I break into your condo tonight you won't have a Barley Crusher anymore, that's all you need to know.

The UPS guy has been busy! Got mine Wed! Gotta re-cut my keg tops (to fit the false bottom in), drill & install my bulkheads, & then get some raw materials to totally screw up. Beer by Labor Day!

Did the little black O Ring fall off? I was worried at first but it seems common to the Barley Crusher. I have adjusted mine down a bit to .033 and not stuck mashes yet.


Did you hand crank all the grain?
