i got my megapot in today with my base grain and crystal grains. i didn't get the crystal milled?? this is going to be my first all-grain how should i crush them without a mill(that's my next purchase)??
my new kettle looks pretty sexy with the ball valve and brewmometer. think i'll make the SWMBO sleep on the couch tonight!
If I needed to hand crush some extra grains (this was before the Barley Crusher), I would simply drop them into a 5-gallon pale, go get my 3-pound sledge, and simple smash the grains in the bucket. Very effective, and the deep bucket contains the debri and dust.
