I FINALLY RECEIVED THE MARGA MULINO GRAIN MILL AS A WEDDING PRESENT
AND USED IT FOR THE FIRST TIME A FEW WEEKS AGO. I AM QUITE IMPRESSED
BY THE QUALITY OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE MILL AND WITH THE WAY THE
THE GRAIN WAS CRUSHED WITHOUT CREATING ANY FLOUR. MY ONLY PROBLEM
WITH THE UNIT WAS THAT I HAD TO KEEP A FINGER IN THE HOPPER CONSTANTLY
SWIRLING THE GRAINS OR ELSE THE GRAINS WOULD EVENTUALLY SETTLE IN
OVER THE HOLE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE HOPPER AND NOT FEED THROUGH. MAYBE
I NEED TO ENLARGE THE HOLE. ALSO THE HOPPER AND CATCH BASIN ARE VERY
SMALL. IF ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE HAS ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS MILL,
EMAIL ME WITH YOUR SOLUTIONS.

BECAUSE THE GRAINS WERE PROPERLY CRUSHED WITHOUT ANY FLOUR( MY CORONA
MILL WOULD ALWAYS GIVE ME LOTS OF FLOUR) MY SPARGING IMPROVED SIGNIF-
ICANTLY BY GIVING ME A HIGHER STARTING SPECIFIC GRAVITY AND FOR ONCE
MY SPARGING RAN CLEAR AFTER ONLY TWO RUN THROUGHS.

I BOUGHT MY MILL FROM TABLE TALK HERE IN TUCSON FOR $69.00. THEIR
PHONE IS 602-293-7139.

ABOUT A MONTH AGO I ORDERED A STARTER KIT FROM THE YEAST CULTURE CO.
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AFRAID OF THE COMPLEXITY AND SANITATION REQUIRE-
MENTS OF YEAST CULTURING. WELL FEAR NO MORE! THE PRE-PREPARED KIT
MAKES CULTURING A BREEZE AND I HAVE EVEN CULTURED TWO OF WYEASTS
ALE STRAINS SO THAT I DON'T NEED TO BUY THEM ANYMORE. MY LAST BATCH
OF ALE WAS PITCHED WITH A STARTER THAT WAS CULTURED FROM ONE OF MY
PETRI DISHES. IT TOOK OFF LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL AND FERMENTED
STEADILY FOR 5 DAYS WITH A HEAD OF YEAST FOAM 8 INCHES THICK. ONLY
A FEW MORE DAYS UNTIL I CAN ENJOY MY FIRST CULTURED FROM SCRATCH
BATCH. THE YEAST CULTURE KIT CO. CAN BE REACHED AT 1-800-742-2110
6 TO 8PM EST.

MAY YOUR BEER ALWAYS GIVE YOU LOTS OF HEAD!
