Grain Mill advice

Good morning, hope you're keeping well! I'm looking to move in to milling my own grains and as such I'm after a decent mill but I'm caught in a dilemma. The 2-roller mill that MaltMiller sells looks ideal but having spoken to Rob he's said they won't be getting more in stock for at least a couple of...

Inline low pressure gauge

Hi everyone, I have 2 micromatic mini secondary regulators that don't have gauges, they have gradients on them that I should supposedly set them too but when I test that with my spunding valve they are MILES out. As they don't have gauges I'd like to fit an inline gauge but I have absolutely no idea...

Re: SS Brewtech Thread Size

Thanks so much everyone! I'll give the 3/8 a go, it's for the CIP so doesn't need to be perfect. Incidentally, mine is a fixed head I've been using it on the fernentasaurus via a 3D printed disk, worked a treat using a submersible pump in a builders bucket [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tap...

Re: What sort of a starter would you do for this? Not really done one before

Thanks again everyone, and yes Kev I meant rinsing with water, apologies, wrong terminology. Thought I'd give an update. So, my batch is going down the drain lol. I brewed it on Saturday and there's still no activity, I've ordered some dry yeast but by the time it gets here it'll have been sitting a...

Re: What sort of a starter would you do for this? Not really done one before

Ah ok thanks. Yeah I have, made the cardinal sin of pitching some washed yeast straight in without a starter (as I wasn't too sure how much to make) so now back tracking as it's not taken off. I might have ruined it, I might not. It's sitting in a conical (fermentersaurus) so I can ditch the old rub...

Re: What sort of a starter would you do for this? Not really done one before

Sorry chaps, another thought occured to me. So I've done as you both recommended and it's on the stir plate happily spinning away. I've read that for lager I should pitch twice as much, should I have done a 2 litre starter with 2 spoons or will I be ok with the 1 litre and 1 spoon? Sent from my SM-G...

Re: What sort of a starter would you do for this? Not really done one before

Guy, IPA, massively appreciate the advice that was exactly what I was after. There's so much in depth talk about some of these things and sometimes straightforward clear guidance is all that's needed. Perfect.

Thanks again both

What sort of a starter would you do for this? Not really done one before

Hey all, I have a yeast pitching rate question. I have a basic lager which is 23 ltrs in the fermentor that will go to a standard 19ltr corney keg that's come in with an OG of 1.036, and I have some Safale W-34/70 that I've washed for my last brew (that one was pitched straight from 2 packets after ...

How to set pressure on secondary regulators

Good morning everyone I'm in the market for a secondary regulator and I've been looking at the micromatic compact secondary which is pretty affordable; https://brandels.co.uk/shop/micromatic/secondary-compact-regulator/ The micromatic secondary has graduations on it instead of a gauge so that you kn...
