    Grinders are pretty simple, you don't need any special technology. Pay for quality burrs, a
    reliable motor, and consistent gap settings. All an lcd screen means is that money didn't go to
    the importan...

    I clean my bk element after every brew. TC makes this very easy as I don't have to climb into a
    20 gallon kettle to get to the element.

    Advice needed. I'm ordering my grinder tomorrow, and I've got it narrowed down to these two:
    Baratza Encore for $129, or Breville Smart Grind refurb for $116 (normally 200)Any suggestions?

    Brewers Hardware responded to me on this question with great detail. It was much appreciated by
    me and I will sum it up here in case others want to know. They say the purpose is to promote

    So does this mean you have two thermowells, one at the cone and one on the sidewall that can
    feed two separate PIDs which in turn control two different valves so you have full independent
    zone control...

    Fully surprised that some of the best home-roasting info I've seen has come from a homebrewing
    forum. As a former professional roaster in a competitive CA Bay Area market, you guys/gals are

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
