I'll have to see do a few batches with grain from the LHBS and see how it goes like you said. If the efficiency sucks then I can grab that cheap mill.

Do you have to make a lot of modifications to get a fine grind for biab? From what I've heard my homebrew shop has a pretty good mill but I would rather have control of every step.

Wilserbrewer, do you still use the corona mill in your signature? I'm thinking of buying one if I can find a good deal. Do they work well for biab?

Thanks for the info, I think this is the pot I'll go with. Does it seem too thin or is it decent quality? I wish it was still $25.

My hops are growing like weeds. What is a good, cheap way to make something for them to climb on. The trellises at Home Depot are too big to fit inside the pot and are expensive.
