I saw a preview of this bucket-based grain mill hopper in Zymurgy’s gadget edition, but when I read the details it wasn’t simple enough for me. So I made a simpler version of a plastic bucket extension for my hopper:
This hopper extends the low-volume hopper that came with my Schmidling Maltmill, allowing me to mill my entire grain bill in one go.
Time: ~1 hour
- Malt mill with hopper that you want to extend
- Plastic bucket. I got a used 3 gallon food-grade bucket from a local ice cream parlor (Kilwin’s).
- Scrap plywood
