1.010?? If so it's probably done. Check it in a few days to see if the gravity readings are

Posted in thread: lots of seperated grain husks in my 2 row on 12-08-2013 at 12:57 PM

I'm a little confused. Maybe I'm reading too much. I plan to leave it at room temp for a few

After grain ...

What would I need for grain crushing? Is it something I can get at a brew shop and what would
