The motor spec and parts list in this thread is why I'm so appreciative of the OP posting the details. I looked at the HF motor and saw it was a "56" and assumed it was the same.

Barley Crusher

I've owned this for about 3 years. Upgraded to a motorized 3 roller mill so I no longer need this one. I think I still have the hand crank, but seriously who wants to crank one of these when you can...

I can't say this problem was related to using 3/8 inch line as I use 1/2 lines but when I tried to use a 3/8" chiller for a HERMS set up it seemed that the pump couldn't flow enough liquid which...

Well then I'm lost. The whole purpose of soaking/steeping/mashing the grains at ~150 is for the enzyme conversion. Everyone that has responded has said e same thing. ~150 degrees for 30 minutes raise...

Fermentation not dropping below 1.020

I realize this could go in the fermentation section but I suspect it's more related to my mashing than fermentation.
