    On a very related subject; What are the best solutions you've seen for keeping dust down? -Some
    sort of rail solution that the bucket slides on to? I'm thinking of just buying a Gamma Seal
    Lid from Ho...

    I Have used the homer buckets to store grain, but I lined it with the glad extra large storage
    bags. Same material as the food baggies and sealed right up then I just used the homer lid on
    top. But go...

    Here's some photos:Can you explain the two pieces of wood under the bottom that hold the
    bucket? -Did you make or buy them? If buy; what exactly are they and where can I get them?
    (Obviously I'm not v...

    Nice to see more options, but just having some triclamp ports doesn't make the fittings
    "sanitary". They still have threads, which are NOT sanitary. I'd have the same critique about
    ball valves vs. bu...

    I make starters directly in the erlenmeyers on my GAS stove, but even with quite a bit of
    antifoam I still almost always get boil over... I'm really curious how people add the DME in a
    way that doesn'...

    Onion and garlic come on when they're left too long on the bines; Yakima had a CRAZY hot summer
    last year and they probably had such a small window to harvest with peak flavor that they just
    couldn't ...

    The thread already pretty much covers it. But they take base malt and then roast it until it
    gets to 20L; the longer you roast malt and the higher the temperature you do it at, the more
    you degrade th...

    My mill is raised 2 3/4" and my motor is raised 1/4" for a grand total of 2 1/2". Pretty sure
    mine shipped out of Colorado.Thanks for posting this Rossi, makes me feel like I'm not all
    alone on my bui...

    Aaah damn....I thought maybe I had the only non-ss mill not rusting from reasonable
    conditioning. I feel normal now. Well, so much for taking my mill to the hospital
    and letting the sick to...

    Again the sweet spot for me would be a 1.5 or 2" roller (knurled or fluted / slotted if they're
    the same price) with hardened rollers and a gear mechanism powering them both at the same
    speed; it shou...
