I've been doing extract/steeping grain home brew for almost a year, and it's time to move to partial mash & all grain. I bought a Victoria mill to grind steeping grains, so to start with it is what I'll use for grinding grain. I have seen a few set ups like this on here, so I decided to give it a try. So with a half-a**ed plan I cut a notch in the bucket so the mill would sit closer to the inside of the bucket better and clamped the mill to a piece of scrap 2x6, set it on top and traced the bucket outline. I cut it out so the top of the 1x6 would sit flush with the top of the bucket.

I used a 5"-4" reducer for a grain chute into the bucket with the edge notched to get it to set as close as possible to the mill. I was going to run screws through the sides of the bucket, but I wanted the top to be removable. I drilled pilot holes and used plastic screw anchors and screws for the mounting board to rest on- not sure how much weight it will support, but it seems fairly sturdy. I cut the lid out so it will fit over the mounting board to keep dust in. The last pic is of the bottom of the mill.

Here is how it looks all together- gonna start out using the hand crank to get in shape for golf season (blatant lie- after knocking down the wist list definitely gonna invest in a drill to run it). Also looks like I need to straighten my Guinness print! Cheers!
