Depending on the wash your running 3-4 is a great place to start

Three ok for bourbons, four will give you good all-round results. Six if you want to make better "vodka"
Cheers.

Check out Brendans simple all grain bourbon in the recipe section. If you like bourbon, his tutorial is excellent. I have used it many times. Don't know why it's not in the tried and proven...

I would get 4 tee's ,as ta how many plates ya use may depend on product and your taste,but I have found useing 4 tee's gives you a good collection height that useing less may not give ,there is nothing wrong with haveing 4tee's with only 2 bubble plates fitted .cheers hillzabilly ;-)
