    Adjusting the gap on crankandstein 2s

    I've taken that black grub screw right out and there is nothing else holding the bearing in place. I know it has to be turned in order to change the gap but how the hell does one turn it! I did find another post somewhere from 6 years ago where someone suggested it had to be punched out but...

    Leffe Blonde

    Hey Les, Thanks mate, got the grain all sorted now so I'll get the brews out in the next few days. Have two smack packs of 1214 (which all the boys in my brew club reckon would be best plus Jamil used that in his clone!) which I'll make a starter from anyway. Cheers, Simon.

    Heading to the States over Christmas.

    Heading over to LA, Vegas, San Fran and Hawaii for a month starting next week. Keen to give these beers a crack. From the sounds of it and not just from beer point of view we should made out trip longer in San Fran and spent less time (9 days) in LA!
