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...

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, the manufacturer (JSP) does say this:

"...The bearing journals and drive shaft are integral to the roller..."

JSP Mill owners - quick questions

Yo,

MrNatural,
Don't really have room below to move the motor. But - good thinking!

Yeah, from 1" to 3" to 1" to 1 7/8.

Wouldn't ya know it. There is a problem with rotation. The nested (is that the right word?) lathe pulleys are only accessible from the back. That...

Motorizing a grain mill - would this work?

I've a 1950's wood lathe. It's powered via a belt to a 1/2 HP capacitor motor. On the motor and on the lathe there is a nest of 4 pulleys. The belt is on a 1'' pulley on the motor and, up top, the...

Sorry, man.
Do you give the mash a good stir after 60 min and then vorlauf or just leave the bed compact?
Cheers!

Thanks for the replies.
Wow, I'm going to try this new sparge technique- I have a brew day tomorrow.
When you mash, do you allow the brain bed to settle?

Cheers!

Well, this is interesting.
I would love not waiting 30 min (for the grain bed to settle).
But, even if you vorlauf to "clear", aren't you missing out on the extra clarification from a compact grain...

We visited the Front Street Brewery in Wilmington, NC.

Usually I would go for an IPA but they had "Swamp Lager" (4% abv) on sale and it was black so I gave it a try. Man! It was so delicious I...

Don't get your hopes up, Mr. Salty. I'm using that technique.

That is why I'm disappointed -I had invested in a $150 pump for the whirlpool/cooling.
