    Mill Master Mini Mill and Keg King Maltmuncher motor

    Has anyone used the Maltmuncher motor with the Mill Master Mini Mill? Not much out there on this topic that I could find. My plan is to mount these on a table on wheels so I can roll it out on brew day and store out of the way when not in use. I have the Mill and hopper, the motor, and have...

    Dr Rudi (Super Alpha) hop variety not in Australia?

    <can of worms> I had a brief conversation with a NZ Hop Dealer and he seriously doubted there were any Dr Rudi hop rhizomes in Australia. I've seen them up for sale here, and also have a friend who is growing them, but he has decided to pull them out as they've been underwhelming. The NZ dealer...

    Glycol chiller and multiple jacketed fermentors

    Is anyone using a glycol chiller to cool multiple jacketed fermentors? I've been eyeing the Keg King Icemaster G40 which has 4 glycol outputs/returns so could potentially work with up to 4 jacketed fermentors, each with their own pump and temp controller...

    My First Ag

    Did my first All Grain yesterday. I had the opportunity to watch a few friends and also spent a day brewing at a microbrewery in December, so felt it was time to make the jump.
