    It is easy and actually BREWS the beer at 195 F. Are you mixing hobbies or just mixing posting
    with beer :)

    You were both talking about different products, but seemed to be answering each other. Just
    wanted to clear up any potential confusion. I got confused myself when I first replied, so I
    had to edit my ...

    I have a confession: I've been using a blade grinder the past few years. I know, I know. It's
    basically as sinful as pitching yeast into 90 degree wort, but hey, the wife had a good point:
    "why buy so...

    Ok so the upgrade is rather costly to trade in.Basically 259 bucks plus s&h. Think I'm just
    going to get a set of steel burrs.Yeah, why bother at that cost.

    It will go through the TC. But you won't be able to get it through a Brewers hardware element
    guard, even the 2" model. Unless it has been redesigned.

    I'm thinking now of going the electric brewery route, with a box enclosure, but wondering how
    you attach a ferrule to these things ? I've seen pictures online but can't get a really good
    idea how to f...

    I emailed Baratza about a trade up. Would certainly be more convenient and time saver to be
    able to grind for grams of ground coffee desired than manually weigh on scale before adding
    beans to hopper ...

    Nope, didn't know they exist. The stock burrs are holding up excellently and remain extremely
    consistent. I don't know if I would change over to those as they say they are for course

    @jammin. My wife insists a bar towel live under the pot and grinder for some reason. Idk why

    When someone questions my patriotism, my response is, "what branch of the military did you
    serve in?"They usually shut up and quietly slither away.My response is, "I thought we were

I was just looking at your information and see that you are from Washington, the state. It made me laugh. I am from Idaho and feel that "Washington" is the state and the city should be designated as "DC". As an aside, I live in Northern Idaho (Sandpoint) and people always call it North Idaho. It is small, but it drives me crazy, just the same was "Washington State" does not set well with me. Anyway, I liked your small editorial. Mark
