    Grain Milling Techniques

    I also have a Corona style mill. My suggestions: -These mills were designed to make flour-so loosen them up to crack your grains. -Set/gap the plates about the width of a credit card-stick a card between and tighten it down. (then tighten a little more for good measure). -when using a drill...

    Oaking & flavouring advice

    For 5 gallons, I usually take a smaller mason jar (6-8oz?), almost filled with oak chips then topped off with bourbon. Put the lid on and let it sit for weeks to months. Then I brew the beer, after primary ferm, move to secondary, then add the bourbon and oak to the fermenter. I'll let this...

    Is all grain kit still good?

    brew it. If it doesn't come out right, dump it. You already sunk the cost of the materials, all you'd be losing now is the time to brew.

    Brew Dogs...

    I've enjoyed the show a lot, since it started. Took a couple of episodes to get used to their accents, but now kind of "know" their personalities and sense of humor, and enjoy watching it while having a homebrew or three.

    Show your steins!!

    My Father in law had a nice little collection of Steins when he passed away about 10 years ago. I mentioned wanting them, but wife and her sibs let them go to the estate auction. I did not go to the auction, or I probably would have bid on them; don't even know what they went for. Some lucky...

    How much cold-brewed coffee for 5 gallon batch?

    Try cold brewing 4 ozs of coffee in 2 cups of water. Add to taste at brewing/kegging time. Go a little strong, it will mellow some.

    Homemade soda

    You can put a small batch in a five gallon keg. You'll just use more co2. But to try it out, that's cheaper than buying a half keg.

    Renting homebrew equipment?

    No legal problem renting equipment. The legal issue with homebrewing is no alcohol sales. The problem with renting is your second question--finding someone who'll rent to you.
