Ray Daniel's book "Smoked Beers" might be a good start.

Here's another link.

I'm reading that price for the unit correctly? Nearly $45?
It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

After conversion to USD, yeah, looks about 42 or so, with free shipping to the states.  A lot less than the competing electric generators I've seen so a good deal I think.

Of course you need a container for the smoke, but that could easily be an existing grill or smoker, or even a cardboard box.  I use my Weber Smokey Mountain or my Weber kettle grill.

One nice thing about cold smoking grain is that no 1, I won't have to worry about losing diastatic power in the malt, and no 2, there's no need to wet down the malt if the temps aren't rising above room temperature, so I don't have to worry about burning the malt, or roasting it too much, or not getting it dry.
