Beer brewing equipment

I used to brew beer and when I moved here I brought all my equipment with me just incase I got back into brewing. I was approached about selling the stuff and I'm seriously thinking of doing it. I had been into all grain brewing and was milling some of the grain with a "Corona" grain mill and also a rolling mill that I used to crush some of the malts. Would these two items be kept for future bread making? Or should I just sell this stuff and buy a more specific brand later if I go that far with bread baking? Your thoughts on the subject will be appreciated!


Mahalo,

You can use the grain mills for making cracked grains, I don't think they'd be capable of making flours.

Corona will only crack, you need a find grind for flour.

sell them. I don't really think I'll get into milling my own flour. Too many other things to do here! Thanks for the replys.

HI Royall
i have been lucky enough to be given a brewing kit for a christmas present and am looking forward to putting my first brew down, It came with a lager mix but i'm most interested in doing a stout to use in my bread making.
The brew kit is made by the same people who brew a very fine stout that i love to use so if i can brew one only half as good it will be great.
good luck with the sale of your gear.

You'll love home brewing Yoz, It really goes hand in hand with bread baking! I just don't have the room for brewing any more. My other hobby is woodworking and that hasn't been as much fun lately as I am relying on that to make a little extre income. If it is work.... it isn't as much fun.
