Midwest Uncrushed Rapid Response
 
2 Attachment(s)

Hey all I should have checked the boards first but I fell victim to MWS terrible grain mill. I have about 16lbs total, I ordered the BEAVER chocolate Stout and well some grains are crushed others are not. My LHBS might still be on vacation but in any case tomorrow is brew day, no way around that. I have read rolling pin I have read car, i have read books etc...

The issue I guess I have, since this is my first official all grain batch, I have rolled oats and all my other grains in their terrible bag of uncrushed grains. I was thinking of taking their massive bag, splitting in two, then placing two garbage bags wrapped with a towel and running over them in my garage. Has anyone done this or does anyone live in the Wichita Falls, TX area with a grain mill that wouldn't mind helping me out by running them through again?

Attached should be a picture or two of the grains.

Well I tried the car thing. I will be honest I didn't think it would work but it did! I put my grains in a towel and got in my car. I was nervous because I didn't want to ruin or waste $30 worth of grain. So I got in my car and found myself surprised that my LHBS owner had not gone on their planned camping trip and he crushed them for FREEEEEE! yay! Big shout to Ken at the Wichita Homebrew Supply! As always Ken was funny, glad to help and we talked about my favorite thing, homebrewing.

Here are the results of a proper crushing. FYI I am going to by a corona mill online for $20 in case this happens again. Midwest was some what helpful regarding my grains issue but not really worth talking about because they said there must be a problem with our mill that caused the crushing of grains to be less than adequate. HMMM ya think?
