Yep great price. I need a wort chiller badly so this allows me to buy some copper instead. If I want one of those beastly crushers someday then I can get when I have the extra money. Corona mill is not bad tho I am here to say. Youll spend 50 bucks at most for one.

I'm thinking of making one of those rib cage coolers. It looks like you'll get a lot more cooling in the same amount of space.

Corona Mill in a Bucket, 5 gallon water bottle hopper, powered with cheap Harbor Freight low-speed drill, a direct rip-off of WilserBrewer's rig. Milling the grain for the Scottish 80 that served as a yeast-cultivation batch for the club RIS. In total, the club did about 20 gallons of the 80, racked, combined the cakes, and divided the yeast into all the fermentors for 60 gallons of RIS.

I actually have a water bottle to spare. Do you have a thread explaining this further. No hammer drill tho.

I think I might have the win on this one... though I am a college student so it could be more of a "Broke-Ass Student" rig than a "Ghetto" one.

Mash/Lauter Tun (total cost: $11)


Insulation/Mash Buddy (she loves the heat)


Boiling/Heating liquor (I can do stove-top as the elevation makes for a lower boil temp)


Brand "new" fermentation chamber made of a freezer I found


Kegerator that was given to me for free by a motor sports junkie (obviously.) Tap and CO2 tank were included but the tap wasn't on during the photo as it was soaking in oxyclean

Mine's not a hammer drill, but a low speed drill similar to this one, although I believe I paid about $20 for mine.
