  • I began homebrewing to save money. My tastes had "matured" to the point of $9 six packs and, like I often do, I wondered if I could make it myself. So I searched the web and found "How to Brew" by John Palmer. Read it cover to cover and the rest is history. I don't think I saved any money but on the plus side I discovered a hobby I really enjoy.

    That is some nice work. I love the overkill.But, the tippy dump is on the wrong piece of

    mounted bearings and struts but not yet sold on the size of the "shaft bolt".I think they are

    This was my first visualization. Pull open the top drawer of full bottles and CRASH!!!!!!Well

    I am looking into making something like this for myself. Ideally, I'd like to spend less than

    TH,from my research over years, I note that the "Stones" in any mill are scored or grooved.I
    wonder if you were to take a 4.5" angle grinder & cut in diagonal grooves across teh face of

    I see what you mean. I just brewed this recipe for the first time a few weeks ago and it's now
