One of the benefits I get from my health insurance plan is a gift card at the end of the year. As long as I do things, such as exercise and go to some of their sponsored events, I get monetary amount toward a long list of retailers. I decided to Amazon.com gift card and left it up to M to decide how to spend the money. Anything he wanted, all I asked in return was a taller cake turner (which I did get – not the pricey Tilt-N-Turn I really wanted, but the Ultra will do). His choices were beer minded – two small kegs; a connector so we can make seltzer; and a grain mill. From what I remember, this model had decent reviews and was priced to M’s liking.
Oooh…marvel in its prettiness!
Our lack of counter space makes using this mill difficult. M needs to make some sort of set up we can put over a bucket. After our last homebrew batch (which he made), I am hesitant to use extract again. It was probably bad yeast that messed up our brew, but I want to try my hand at all-grain.
