I too had one unintentional lacto infection a few years back. Yes, it's unlikely to happen, but
it CAN happen. Since then (well, actually, until my last batch or two) I've taken aims to mill
my grain ...

on fermenter buckets can be notoriously innacurate. Same rule of thumb goes for any vessel that

There is only one relay (the contactor) and four switches. The EPO switch is a single pole
