  • I Have been drinking microbrews for a whlie.Love the taste of most but not the retail price. So, I decided to try to make my own beer. Bought my equipment and starter ingredient kit locally. Just doing partial mash extract kits for now and want to get into whole grain in the future, once I figure out the basic process. Made 2 brews so far, an American Amber(turned out more like an IPA) and a English Brown Ale(tastes real good out of the primary).

    yeah I have made these recipes before. I am using a SS braid to filter. Grain is real powdery.
    Efficiency is about the same. I'll have to email the guy and ask him to set the mill different

    I recently switched to a new brew ingredient supplier. Great service, but this guy crushes the
    grain too fine, I think. I have never had stuck sparges until ordering from this place. This
    new place is...

    more if I bought my base grain in bulk and got myself a crusher.
