    Thanks for the input, guys....No reason to wait when batch sparging. Just pour it in, stir like
    a mother for a few mins, and let her rip....Yeah, you're right. I chuck a mixer into a big-ass
    cordless ...

    Don't even really need to heat it...Thanks for suggestion, blizz. One less thing to worry
    about.And of course, you're right in that I might as well run some water through the
    grain.Cheers

    Well, you are limited by your vessel size here. I think you have figured it out, thanks.I'll
    stick to regular sparging, or try your method. Kinda hoping to shorten the brew day and so the
    "no sparge" ...

    Sorry for the confusion, skunkfunk.I was thinking of completely draining what I could from the
    mash tun, equally into the two kettles. Then adding tap water to them both until I got up to 8

    The recipe is normally 18 lb of Maris Otter for 15 gal of session beer. I'll increase the grain
    to 24 lb for the "no sparge".The mash tun is a Sanke keg (15 1/2 gal) so I'm limited to 13 gal
    of mash w...

    Thanks for the replies!Just got an email saying that they are still selling 1 lb bags (the new
    website is under construction)Prices are comparable with Yokima Valley Hops, but it looks like
    YVH have A...

    They re-done their web page and it looks like the minimum is a 10 lb bale. Now, I'm a hop head
    but even that is too much. Can't even see how to order a 10 lb bale.I've sent them an email but
    thought y...

    Vlad, Thanks for the post.Good point about it tipping over unless done correctly. I haven't
    started thinking yet about that aspect. Maybe I should just bite the bullet and buy a 12"
    pulley from Graing...

  • Posted in thread: JSP Mill owners - quick questions on 04-23-2014 at 11:57 PM
    Thanks for the reply.Yes, the manufacturer (JSP) does say this:"...The bearing journals and
    drive shaft are integral to the roller..."But I'm not sure I understand that. I don't think he
    is saying the...
