I mill about 8-10 feet away from where I brew in the kitchen and never had a single infection brewing 2-3 batches a month. I use a monster mill right over a home depot bucket and don't see much dust being kicked up.
I keep the fermentation container + lid + airlock soaked in starsan until...
Did my first batch of Kombucha yesterday and there's already visible results from the 1 gallon jar, but I had a few questions.
