Hi All,

Just wanted to share this Mill powered by a Static Bicycle, this saves a lot of time in milling for all-grain brewing and of course you can do a bit of sports before brewing.

Cheers

Been toying with the idea myself. I was thinking something setup more like a cycling trainer so I could just use my current rides.

I'm impressed. I wonder if it offsets all the calories in the beer you drink after it's done.

Ooooo! You gotta make sure you use Shimano Ultegras on this! I can see this going in to green breweries across America in the next 5 years.
