Best reviews for the budget

I choose this unit because of hopper size, already adapted to a 5 gallon bucket, and the ability to operate with a drill motor.

Good product
Used it once so far with both the handle and a drill and it worked well. The gap was easy to adjust. It gave us control over one more step of the process. Can't wait to use it again!

Great.
Used it once so far but works very well and it’s hard to beat the price. Was recommended to me by somebody who brews a lot more than I do.

This is my second unit because I dropped my first one a few times. So, a reminder. Remove your drill when walking away if the hopper is empty.

Solid
Crushed a few different grains so far; from pilsen to carapils. It gave a great crush, worked right through the tough carapils. My only comment would be that the o ring lasted all of a few minutes. Fortunately, the o-ring is not necessary for the operation of the mill.

Awesome!
Works great right out of the box! Make sure you hold board down. It’ll take off on you if you’re not paying attention and flip off the bucket. Totally my fault. Great product.

Okay Grain Mill
I got this grain mill as part of an upgrade to all grain brewing in a brew in a bag method. In my limited experience, it seems that the BIAB method benefits from a REALLY FINE grind - much finer than you get when I bought malt from MoreBeer pre-milled. My yield was very disappointing when I used the pre-milled malt, so much so that I had to add lbs of DME to hit my target OG.

This mill can produce a grind that is somewhere between cornmeal and flour in fineness. This fine of a grind made a huge positive impact to my OG, getting a bit over the target OG without having to boil the wort at length.

I find that attaching a handheld drill is the only way to go when the goal is a really find grind. It was a tough fight with the provided handle.

Overall, I thought that the mill is a bit more flimsy than I had hoped for - I have the sense that the mill rollers are where the builder spent the money. If I keep at the BIAB method, I could see adding a heavier duty, upgraded mill to my equipment wish list.

've had this mill for several years now, it works but could be better. I've had it stop milling several times now in the middle of a grind. I've re-set the gap, air blown off the rollers, oiled them, with little improvement. Today, half way through my grind, it quit once again, cleaned it, brushed it, air blew it, with no avail. After nearly an hour of tinkering with it, I still couldn't get it to begin grinding again. I Had to go down to my LHBS and have them finish the grind. The price is right, but I guess in the end, you get what you pay for.
