    Crushing grains with Corona mill

    I agree. I’ve been using my corona mill for a decade and love it. But def you need a tighter crush but as previous poster warned you take it to far and you’ll get a stuck sparge for sure which isn’t the end of the world but just a headache to deal with. Enjoy!

    Last minute Grain swap, thoughts?

    I guess I should have just used the crystal 60 I had on hand instead of the melanoidan. Oh well. It will still be drinkable.

    Last minute Grain swap, thoughts?

    Went to grind grain and found I didn’t have the carastan my recipe called for. Not wanting to drive to the LHBS I subbed melanoidan malt and moved on. Interested to here peoples thoughts on this swap?

    does anyone have any experience with natural carbing and dry hopping in the keg simultaneously? It seems like a really good idea to me....

    can beer mold? pic inside....

    i still havent decided what to do with this beer. noticed yesterday, as it has warmed up a bit in the house here, that im getting a bubble in the airlock every 25-35 seconds, as opposed to nothing really at all, so its obviously doing something again, maybe as a previous poster mentioned to...
