If I didn't homebrew I'd be spending my time on other hobbies, which are generally way more expensive. So homebrewing saves me money in that respect. That's good enough for me.Me too! Keeps me off the golf course!
What size vessel do you use for that pass?
As an aside, I grow 4mls of yeast slurry to 200 billion cells in one pass. Four milliliters of yeast slurry contains approximately 1/10th the number of viable cells that are available in the average White Labs vial when it is pitched.
I want to use an old Better Bottle carboy for a hopper on my new JSP grain mill. Has anyone had any luck or have any advice on this?Do you have a table saw? Just set the blade to 1/16" depth and rotate the bottom of the BB against the guide.
