Dust collection


Recommended Posts

What options are available to minimize dust when using 50lb sacks ground to flour? Is there anything for manual pour into the mash tun, or is an auger system needed? I would eventually like to auger with larger sacks or mill ourselves, so something we can grow with would be great.

There are two dust challenges you'll face: milling & handling. By far the best approach to dust control when milling is to build a dedicated room with special air filters.  You'll weigh, mill, and load the auger hopper all in the same room.   In some jurisdictions this may be a requirement. If it's not, it probably should be.  As for handling, iskiebaedistillery is spot on -- look at grist hydrator. Good for preventing doughballs as well.
