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

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.

save your money
'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.

WHY SPEND MORE?
Got this today, used it today, I am 100% happy with it today! No need to spend more in my opinion, have heard many complaints about the expensive grain mills. Cheers!

Works Great
I have used this for 5 brews now. I hand crank therefore it takes about 10 minutes for 10 lbs. What is nice with having a crusher, I can purchase grain on sale and grind it fresh before brewing. No need to purchase milled grain...always fresh milled when brewing.

Love it
I have had this mill for about 3 years now. I have never had a problem with it. It works great for a great price.

Works perfectly
I've used this mill for about 20 brews, so far, and it works perfectly. Instead of the hand-crank (tiring for even 10lbs of grain!) on the 5gal bucket method, I mounted it to a small rolling table and connected the axle to a heavy-duty speed-adjustable drill. Effortless that way and doesn't go too fast.

Nice mill for the price.
My buddy has a $300.00 mill, I think this one works just as good once you hook it to a cordless drill. I think his is faster when you hand crank but not by much. My battery was dead a few weeks ago, so I just got out the crank and got a 5 gallon batch cranked out in under 10 mins, no problem.
