Description

The Barley Crusher has a long history of reliable use and is constructed using materials that will last a lifetime. The Barley Crusher uses 1018 Cold Rolled Steel for the rollers, 6061 Aluminum for the mill body and hopper, tool steel for the axles with Oil Impregnated bronze bushings.

Mill Features:

  • The gap default setting is marked and set at .039 at assembly. Adjustment range is from .015 to .070 thousandths of an inch.
  • The standard hopper holds an even 7 pounds.
  • Can be used with the Hand Crank or attached to a 3/8 in. drill motor. (No adapter is needed to operate the mill using a 3/8 in. drill motor)
  • Comes with a solid base with locators to center the Barley Crusher on a 5 or 6 gallon plastic pail. (Pail not included)
  • Using a 3/8 drill motor at 500 RPM gives you a crush rate of 6 pounds a minute making the big grain bills fast and easy.

Simple, easy home brew grain crusher. Can be used as is or converted with an electric motor, though I would recomend slow and steady with the hand crank as the crush is better with manual power rather than a motor.

Is this mill a 2 or 3 roller?
Al on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 2 roller. One roller free spins, the other is driven by the supplied handle, or you can connect a drill. Been working very well for me for a few years.

Great Mill
Easy to adjust and once adjusted mills the grain without clogging very quickly. A definite improvement from the preset mills at the local home brew shops.

Mill Great—Hopper Too Thin
Works great. Four stars because sides of hopper are so thin.

Works, but not well made.
This mill does its job, and actually with decent speed if using a drill, but its build quality is so low I’m not sure how long it’s going to continue doing so. It does have a gap spacing adjustment, but it’s very rough. The cheapest parts are the platform which is MDF (which came chipped and cracked) and the hopper, which is SUPER thin cheap sheet metal.

In the end, it still gets 3 stars because my mash efficiency went up compared to buying pre-milled grain.

check the gap with a feeler gauge
After running about 30 batches through it, I was getting a few stuck mashes lately. I got some feeler gauges and found that it was way off on one side compared to what is inscribed on the side of the unit. Once I got that dialed in, the mash was perfect.

Otherwise has been working fine for me, I built up a little table for it and mounted an old drill to drive it. Running a 0.045" gap with my SS Brewtech mash tun herms setup.

Great mill
Easy to adjust the rollers to get the right amount of crush but didn’t come with instructions. Good thing for YouTube. I should have bought a mill a long time ago. Much better than the local brew shop

Works great!
I've only used it twice, but it works great! I have noticed some rusting on the rollers so I need to figure out what to do about that. I was storing this in my garage shop, but it is inside now. Totally my fault. I live in Louisiana so we have 90% humidity pretty much every day...

Nice piece of equipment
So far so good - just 1 brew day in. No instructions included - which would have been helpful to adjust roller gap - loosen screws, videos on YouTube. Hopper could be a little more generous, think the price to upgrade was a bit absurd when already spending $150 on a mill.

Great mill
Have been using this for 10 years. Still working well. Used a drill to run it for years. Put the handle back on for the exercise.

Solid mill after initial "break-in"
Started out a little rough on my first brew using this mill. Several stuck sparges and metal shavings mixed in with crushed grain. 2nd brew was better and I could not be happier with the third. There is a "break-in" period with this mill, but it is a solid addition to the brewhouse. I love being able to buy grain in bulk now.
