Default Call for any Christchurch New Zealanders

Need some help with my grains. I just found out that the LHBS does not mill your grains for you here in Christchurch.. I do not have the resources right now to buy one so I thought I would do it the old fashion way.. not working out that well.. If anyone has a mill or know where I can go to get these milled today I would be ever thankful and you would have a new drinking buddy
please call me (022 659 0259) or text me there or here!

cheers
Gary

hey mate where did u buy your grains from? You could try a strong coffeee grinder set on coarse. You could also adapt those electric spice grinders and a fiuunnel or something to make one, Another idea is making a roller to just crack them and run it through them a few times.
Good luck mate

Have you tried the Realbeer.co.nz forums (http://www.forum.realbeer.co.nz/forum), might have a bit more luck there with finding a local with a mill to borrow. Good luck, if your were a few weeks later and in Tauranga I would let you try the one I'm getting made but still need to piece it together!
Just saw this thread on there, you will probably get a bite there http://www.forum.realbeer.co.nz/foru...brewers-meetup

You just need to crack the grains. You could do it with a wine bottle possibly, though in a pinch you could probably rig something up. Maybe put the grains between two pieces of hard wood and hit it with a hammer. Since the goal is to get the water to the inside of the grain anything that you can do to breach the outer husk should work.
