Well cover me in flour and bake me for forty minutes if they didn't have a grinder up at the LHBS when I strolled up there at lunchtime! Payday was today and I walked back to work with a heavy than normal load. Thanks Amanda (Who I assume reads this forum!).

Now for this obsession to REALLY take off. Apparently I need to learn to weld! This will not be an issue.

I got me some reading to do... Prep yourselves for some questions!!! I need to source grain also which may be tricky in this lovely wee island that I am currently floating around on.

Yeeeeeehaaaaaa...



now, just to tell the wife...

Those NJ boys are going to ask you if you prefer cappicola or genoa.

All of these years I thought I was really missing something being single. Finding true love, having children, spreading my seed and ensuring the family name.... I love the idea of it all. But then the mere thought of a wife keeping my ass in check on homebrewing investments scares me straight.

I think I have a problem...

'Atta boy.

Didn't you say you have a dismal brew cellar? Something that maybe a woman wouldn't want to go down into? If she ever did go down there, you could say, 'That old thing? Well you wouldn't let me buy a proper one, so I had to make do with this piece of crap.' She wouldn't know the difference.

The brew cellar has had a bit of work done on it. I have removed a pillar from the middle of the "room" and put a dirty big steel lintel on the beam. Opened it right up. Since moving in I have also ripped out all the old shelves and workbenches and fitted new ones. I have huge shelves made of old doors to store beer bottles and barrels on and about another 5m x 10m of storage space. Add to that the two fridges, tv, dvd recorder, ezyboy recliner I am seldom out of there! i shall need to take some photos. I am moving in baby, oh yeah (kramer stylie). Slowly but surely I will basically have a flat downstairs. Toilet is the issue but the lemon tree is looking very healthy

oh, and Brew Alchemy, I thought the same.

So how exactly does one run grain through a cylindrical sandwich?

I guess it depends where. No Grinders around here. They're subs. If you go down South, it's Hogies usually pronounced Hyo-geez.

+1 to Bobby's no Grinders around here. They're subs..

Also, for further edification, cappicola is pronouned Gabba-ghoul if you're a North Jersey Italian.

While I'm at it..
Gah-va-deal, Mana-gut, Rih-gut, Muhtsa-dell and the most irritating of them all, Gah-la-mod.
