I did it in my 100 degree garage :-( I really like the idea of using my own two hands to grind the grain though, feels right... Like chopping wood!

I use a log splitter, likewise I use a drill to power my corona mill.

maybe when I get old and tired I will go that direction... ;-)

On another note, I must have gone too fine with my first grind... I brewed my winter warmer yesterday and got a nasty stuck sparge with no rice hulls to help out :-(

Well Revvy I am pleased to show off my station hope it gets the ugly stamp of approval. I went with the 2 bucket design only I cut the lid out of the bottom bucket to make it taller. Also I went hand crank cuz its badass and I young enough to pull it off. Thank for all the advice ugly corona station crew!

That is actually pink and its a cup cut down to fill the gap between the mill and the lid of the bucket
