I use the 2 row malt muncher with a corded drill fitted.

Only difficulty is with whole I cracked corn.
For this I buy it cracked ( they charge $2.00 extra for. 25 kg bag.)
Then I put the cracked corn through the malt muncher to get the finer grind I want.
Everything else including raw wheat etc the mill sails through it.

They are around the 270-280 shipped currently

Nothing wrong with the smaller set up, just depends how often you want to do corn, the 10c a kg extra for cracked isnt really a killer at the end of the day, one small thing that comes to mind though is that the avigrain whole corn that im getting seems very much fresher than any cracked corn ive seen.

I let mine run reasonably slow and can do stuff while it munches, on my huge list of projects is to try a bigger hopper and a set up so that it feeds straight into the top of the fermenter while mashing

It only has to do 2.8 tons of corn to pay for itself :think: :)) hopefully im young enough to pull that one off, might take a while though :cool:

Ok the verdict. I ended up with 8.8L @65% from 60kg of grain. Down a bit on the 13.2L you get. 33% loss.

Flavour was good, i know its got a tonne of corn but i was surprised how much the corn flavour actually comes over.

I stir twice day every day and let sit for 3 weeks. Others have success fermenting 7-10 days with similar volume. I am not sure if they are heating though..
I think the agitation is what helps.

Sorry i have confused myself I am doing 1.5 batchs now. 22.5kg grain 60l water. From this I keep 3.3l @65.

I wanted to do double batchs but it would not fit in fermenter.
