I have this Lovejoy for my MM3:

It has a set screw that holds onto a flat side on the shaft.

I've brewed a good number of gallons of 100% Best Malz Munich II dunkel, mashing at 154F, pitching WY2206, and FG of 1.012.

I get that everyone's system is different, but I don't treat Munich I or II much different than any other malt. Are you guys using a different maltster or something?

Interesting article and I like this guy's approach.

I tend to use gelatin on styles that should be clear, and leave it out on styles where it doesn't matter (e.g. saisons), but I find myself wishing for a clearer beer out of the tap anyway. Perhaps I'll use gelatin more in the future.

Great news!  I LOVE S-189!

What do you use S-189 for? I mean, obviously lagers, but what styles is it suited best to?

Neat Dave!

+1 Bruce.

If one of your clubs is into the circuit competition thing, then I'd put that club in, but it really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

It only happens to me when I'm trying ti kill an almost empty keg to put another one on tap.  I keep drinking and drinking and there's still beer left....

For me, it's always when I have another beer to keg in the morning. I'll think, "there can't possibly be more than two or three pints left…" Famous last words.

THIS!  Need a keg, swear there is 1-2 pints left, wife comes down a few hours later and asks why I'm drinking so much.  She doesn't believe the magical keg story for some reason..... ???
Myles does this more often than I can remember. Haha. He'll commit to killing the "nearly empty keg" and then spend 3-5 days trying to do it. I swear, as soon as the keg hears what his plans are, it starts generating magic beers.

Blind Pig is discontinued from what I hear. Heard that when I was at the tap room in September, picking up 14 Pliny's.

I also love Label Peelers. I use them for my high end wine kits. Best prices + service for the Eclipse series kits. The other outfit (that has excellent prices on WinExpert) in FL is a joke, and the owner is incredibly rude. I'm a LP fan for life after dealing with the FL guy!

If only I needed yet another wine going... Haha.

"Quality beer for EVERYONE" is probably a stretch. ;)

Use a square of some sorts when mounting your mm3. Will save you a bunch of headaches. After seeing all the carpentry work you have done, I'm sure you can handle it.
Thank you for the pro tip Steve! I'll use that once I get the motivation to set the thing up.

I know I always say this but...  people tend to like the mill they have.

I have a BC.  I've used it for 7 years and it has always worked great until last Spring when it started having issues pulling grain into the rollers.  The main roller would spin but no grain would go through. 

That is the issue I had with the BC and the Captain Crush.  The BC started doing it after about a year, and the CC did it right off.
I have never liked my Barley Crusher. Mine had the same "sticks all the time" issue. I would give it away if anyone local would take the stupid thing.

I've bought a MM3 and direct drive motor, but have yet to set it up yet.

You can upload them via mobile if you use Tapatalk. Very easy.

Use extreme caution if considering uploading pictures of stills...

Here is what I did on the elements
I'm not seeing a picture if there is supposed to be one. Just FYI.
