    I'd have a real concern with that motor. It is only 90w which is about 1/8 hp. Seems a bit
    small. I notice in the video that the motor is started before the grain is added. I wonder if
    it would start ...

    FYI,Just saw that Williams Brewing Supply has motorized kits now available!! Not too bad a
    price from the look of it.TD

    Try green coffee buying club. Or the green coffee bean coop for better prices.As far as Turkish
    grind, first off, can you really do a Turkish grind ? I didn't think most non commercial
    grinders could ...

    The pulleys (aka sheaves) are a bit spendy.I was reluctant at first. One of the best mods I've
    done...mine is bit ghetto compared to some, but it's been working great for many years.
    Probably been 7 o...

    I've brewed both methods from "Brewing Classic Styles" using the reference recipe, and much
    preferred the 1 gallon caramelization version. It's now on my rotation. There is no way a three
    hour boil wo...

    Thanks. Yes I had seen that info as well.So after finishing the book. Unimpressed with what
    I've learned. Firstly, in my endeavor to clone a beer or produce a reasonable attempt at a
    similar flavor pr...

    Would love so see "Jammin's Rules of the Roast" compiled into one post by origin!! Seriously
    have learned a lot about getting great flavor from your posts. Far fewer lousy roasts, and when
    I do, it's ...

    @trickydick - do you have a vario with the steel burrs? I love mine; superb grind quality. I
    wouldn't worry about the fines building up. In my experience that stuff doesn't break loose so
    nothing to w...

    Reading through more of the noonan book about this style I'm learning a bit about the
    historical examples, which it seems has little to do with modern day examples!For one thing,
    scotch ale and Scotti...

    This is the upper burr from my Baratza, which originally came with ceramic burrs -
    interestingly when I swapped to steel, I found a chip in one of the ceramic original
    burrs....At any rate, the steel ...
