    It is time for a short educational video and this one covers the topic of milling your own grain for use within all in one brewing systems.

    I get and see a lot of questions about this in general so here is a guide.

    In this guide, I provide information about the choice of grain mill, the mill I use, gap size to use for all in one brewing systems, drilling speed, storage of milled grain, wet milling, locations best to mill in and health advice.

    I hope I have covered the topic well, do let me know if you have further questions.

    As usual, thank you for all your kind support and enthusiasm for my channel.

    Please keep your questions, feedback and requests coming but please give me some time to answer, I get a lot of messages and answer them in the order they were sent in, particularly those on Facebook messenger tend to stack up! If you are comfortable then please ask questions within Facebook groups, forums or Youtube, so that others can also either benefit or contribute.

    Happy brewing!

    I switched off after 34 seconds after being informed that BIAB was a minority practice and everyone nowadays brews in Grainfathers etc.

    All in ones are becoming more popular but i am sure at the present time the majority don't use them.

    It really depends on where you are in the world. Certainly in Europe this is the case.

    That may or may not be true in the US but certainly in the markets I know about it is.

    Well I guess we can all speculate on this but it is not really the whole point.
    All I did here was make a video to put all in one system owners on the right track for milling their own grain.

    Quite a few bugs crawling around in your grain while you were milling, do they add flavour?

    On 3:26 eh, I noticed them too. Makes you wonder how many eggs ended up being mashed.
