  Cordless drills aren't designed for the kind of continuous duty that grinding grain requires, most don't have the battery capacity and such use dramatically shortens the service life of the batteries. Fifty bucks will buy you an adequate, new, corded drill. If you decide to go that route something with a max RPM in the 500 to 700 range is preferable to the drill/drivers which usually are around 1,500 to 2,000 RPM.
   Sorry if I'm too far off subject here.

I appreciate that. My cordless drills are old and less than adequate to begin with...
On Tap/Bottled: IPL, Rye Cream, Red Rye, Fest
Fermenting:
Up Next: winter warmer, italian pils

My efficiency headaches continue as it unpredictably goes up or down 10 points with every batch...


Do you mill your own grain, out of curiosity?

Good call. I do have an old corona mill with drill adapter but stopped using it because my drill would lose charge before getting through. My LHBS is very good with only one mill so I guess I just assumed they keep it properly set. I kind of got lazy and ignorant so I will have to revisit it.

I was being a bit dramatic regarding consistently seeing 10 point shifts however my efficiency is definitely inconsistent...



Definitely sounds like the culprit. You could always ask them to double mill it. I used to do that.

Man, you are full boar!  I love it. Please share your results, especially with the longevity of your hop aroma.

Aye, will do! The pale ale I did it with last stayed fresh tasting till the end of the keg. Kegged it 2 gravity points before it was finished. But I think it lasted 3 weeks from tapping to kicking and was in the keg for maybe 5 or 6 weeks total. One of the best beers I've ever brewed. All Vienna malt is a great idea for many styles!

Got my Dopplebock out of the way today. Hit a 1.090 OG. Pitched some 5 day old WL 833 slurry and a ton of O2. Got it chilled to 48F prior to pitching.

back in the game after the summer hiatus!!!

Going with my vienna mandarina IPA.  8-kegs empty and clean.....sad but true and hope to change that over the next few months.

Happy brewing this weekend  ;D

Ahh good to be back brewing. All went as planned and looking forward to having fresh homebrew back on tap.

Especially with 1/2 # of goodness thrown in ....cascade,Amarillo,mandarina

Just finished bottling up a round of 6 entries going into my next competition. The wife just absolutely "loves" how obsessed with beer I am.  ;)

Oktoberfest on deck this weekend.  I've got a Porter, Kolsch, and Hoppy Amber on tap no so that seems like it would round out the group nicely.

I'm going to use a bunch of Maris Otter in it since I have a sack of that I'm trying to finish off.  I have read a few things about people using MO in an oktoberfest, so I'll see how that goes.  Basing the recipe on what I have seen in Brewing Classic Styles and Gordon Strong's recipe book (name escapes me for some reason). 

6.5 lb Maris Otter
3.5 lb Munich Dark
1 lb Melanoidin Malt
0.25lb Caramunich II

1oz Super Styrian @ 50min

Wyeast 2308

I was going to use 34/70 but the LHBS didn't have any, in fact they only had 2308 left for lager yeasts.  Must be popular right now, fortunately 2308 was my second choice.  Starter is growing now.
Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.
