Description

A complete kit that includes the Monster MM3 mill and hopper, with or without the extension. Monster mills are known for being great quality, top of the line, homebrewing mills. With all the great features of the already popular MM-2, and the addition of a third roller, you'll be able to achieve the best crush around, at a higher throughput speed. The MM-3 crushes all your grain twice, with one pass through the mill. It starts with a preliminary crush through the initial fixed gap between the top two rollers, and then ends with a pass through the second gap between the drive roller, and the bottom third roller. The initial pass slightly flattens the grain, and gets it ready for the next crush, that breaks apart the grains and loosens the starch with minimal husk damage.

The MM-3 consists of a 6061 aluminum block frame with three 6" long steel rollers riding on SAE 841 oil impregnated bronze bushings. We use a superior grade of steel that is much harder than what is found on most comparable products and should last almost twice as long. The drive shaft, and all the axles are integral to the roller rather than screwed into the ends. This makes it fine to drive the mill clockwise, or counter-clockwise. All the axles are 3/8", with minimal freeplay in the bushings.

One knurled steel roller is driven by a standard electric drill (not included) to feed the grain through the initial fixed gap of approximately .060", and then through the adjustable secondary gap and crush the grist. Both ends of the non-driven top idler roller ride in bronze bushings that are pressed into the frames, while the second idler roller rides in bushings that are offset mounted in an adjustable knob. The knob is held in a fixed position by a set-screw that you can loosen to adjust the mill. This system provides an adjustment range of .065". The knobs are made from 303 stainless steel for excellent durability, and are larger in diameter than the competition, as well as knurled for a positive grip. They've also added a groove in our newest design knobs with a matching rounded head on the thumbscrew that allows for a much better grip on the knob to avoid gap changes while milling, and also providing knob retention.

These Packages come complete with a Base, 3 Roller Monster Mill Body, and a Hopper.  Choose whether to include the Hopper Extension, which upgrades Hopper capacity to a huge 39 lb! 

Features:

  • Three six-inch steel rollers form two gaps, a preliminary fixed gap of approx .060", and a fully adjustable secondary gap.
  • Dual eccentric adjusters: 0 to .065" secondary gap - built from STAINLESS STEEL for no galling
  • 8 lbs / minute throughput
  • 3 x 6" hardened steel rollers
  • Rollers last for 12,000 - 15,000 lbs of grain
  • Drill-drive - CW, OR CCW
  • Alloy frame
  • SAE 841 oil impregnated bronze bushings
  • 1.5" diameter steel rollers
  • 3/8" integral drive shaft w/3 flats for drill driving, 2" long outside frame

BEST ANSWER: I wish I could answer that for you but I've had trouble getting the shaft coupler to stop slipping ever since I got it and when I reached out to Brewmaster they were no help. The motor sure seems good in concept but I have trouble figuring out how it's compatible with anything so far :/ that said the mail I attempted to hook into is a three Roller Mill but not a monster brand, again my concern would be with a design in general not so much which Mill it should be connected to
How tall is the assembly with the extension?
Daniel Clark on May 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: From very bottom of included wood board plate to top of stock hopper is 14 inches tall, and from very bottom of the base to top of the extension is 23 inches, so the extension adds 9 inches, cheers
Can this mill down to flour size?
Roy Baker on Apr 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This mill cannot be adjusted tight enough to pulverize grain into flour. Even if you ran it a few times it would still be very coarse.
Is the drive shaft round, or indexed to provide a better grip on the chuck of a drill?
Herbert Pokorny on Jun 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: "3/8 inch integral drive shaft w/3 flats for drill driving, 2" long outside of frame" Yes there are 3 flat spots on the drive shaft, drill chuck works well.
What are the dimensions of the wood board? I would like to be able to set this on top of my 30G mash tun.
Daniel Clark on May 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 12” square the mill sits on the left edge of the board you could easily make it any size you want just trace the pattern on the wood just need a drill and jigsaw the mill is 3” wide and 7” across
What is the capacity without the hopper extension?
JEFF M on Oct 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 11lbs. Awesome Mill too, never had any issues
I can't figure out how to set the rotation speed on my new Monster Mill. Monster Mill recommends running the mill at 150 to 250 RPM. How am I supposed to check that? I'm thinking to try an iPhone flash metronome. Anybody solved this problem?
Doug Slakey on Feb 10, 2021
BEST ANSWER: If you're using a power drill or similar, I don't have any good answers, other than 180rpm = 3rps, so that's the speed of 60bpm triplets, if you're a musician.

A lot of us just buy a 180rpm motor to attach, and then we just know it's the right speed. This also solves for having to attach anything every time. MoreBeer has the Malt Muncher; others carry similar products. Don't forget you'll need bushings. The MM has helpful pix and customer questions/answers about how to connect it up.

NOTE: for grain milling, slower is better, but slower is also slower. So, while it'd be ok to grind your grain at, say, 90rpm, it'd takes 2x as long as at 180.
What are the dimensions of the base rollers? I'm retiring my Captain Crush mill and would like to adapt my hopper to MM3. Cheers!
Dick Rogers on May 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The rollers themselves on this mill are 1 1/2", I imagine you're more interested in the dimensions of the roller housing for adapting a hopper though. They are 3 1/2" wide, 7" deep, and 3 3/8" tall.

Good mill on a poor base
The mill is great. It does exactly what a mill is supposed to do. The grains are crushed to the proper size and the husk is left mostly intact.

Assembly was easy, except for the two in the bottom/center of the hopper, which requires a stubby screwdriver and an open-end wrench.

The base is terrible.
* The holes in it leave a LOT of play for the rollers. The alignment holes for the end pieces should either be good enough to leave the rollers with only a few thousandths of endplay or they should be slotted.
* It's easily deformed by the bolts.
* It will absorb moisture from the air, becoming even more fragile as it ages.

This base needs to be replaced with a thick/tough plastic.

Motorized Monster!
I’ve only used it a couple of times but so far it’s amazing. It chews through wheat malt (and you know that I’m talking about here) like nothing.

A Beast!
Just got this mill and hopper extension a few days back. Putting the hopper together took some time as the nuts and bolts are very small. Couldn’t tell if the nuts were supposed to be on the inside or outside of the hopper, but opted for outside in order to avoid grain getting caught on top of the nuts if they were on the inside. Adjusting the roller was a pain, but once you set it and get an acceptable crush, you really shouldn’t have to adjust again. Used feeler gauges to get gap to .040” and ran about a pound of grain thru. Crush looked good. Used a sharpie to Mark the .040” mark on the adjustment knob. Tightened the mill to the base and the rollers wouldn’t roll as freely. Loosened the bolts a bit (still tight enough) and the rollers were free again. Wish the base has some way of being secured to the bucket, although I doubt it would ever slip off. Lastly, was surprised that the drive shaft was 3/8” as the manufacturer’s standard size is 1/2”. Guess I didn’t read the fine print. Not a huge deal as I plan on using a drill at least for now. I suppose I could replace the roller and bushings with 1/2” in the future if I ever decide to add a motor. Overall, glad I spent the money on a mill that should last for a very long time. Cheers!

A great mill!!
In a long learning process, this is the third mill I have bought from MoreBeer - I kept trying mills until I had one that worked well. Monster Mill (3 roller version) is the third. I just finished assembling my new mill and I am very impressed with the build quality - by far the best build and best materials of any of the mills that have passed through the brewery. The frame (side plates) are made from a thick slab of aluminum, the rollers are heavy and wider than in other mills I have owned. The hopper is a heavy gage of steel sheet with galvanizing. It is by far the best, sturdiest hopper of the mills I have tried. See photo 1.

Gapping the rollers does involve removing the hopper - this mean you have to remove four bolts and the two set screws. It takes a minute or so each way. Gapping the rollers does require some finesse but I plan to set it (for BIAB) and leave it alone for the next decade or so.

I plan to set the mill on a 6 gallon pail. To hold the mill in place on the bucket, I added 4 @ 1/2" pegs at the corners of the base slab, extending about 1" below the bottom of the base (see photo 2).

I ran a few pounds of malt through the mill, as described in the assembly instructions. I used my 3/8" battery-powered drill, which seemed to handle the load fairly well. Long term, I plan to buy a corded 3/8" variable speed drill and leave this new drill attached to the mill.

One thing I can't figure out is how to set the rotation speed. Monster Mill recommends running the mill at 150 to 250 RPM. How am I supposed to check that? I'm thinking to try an iPhone flash metronome. Anybody solved this problem?

One thing - the drill handle kicks back pretty hard when you dump the malt into the hopper. I added a board on the top of the mill base to rest the drill handle on (see photos) so I don't have my wrist twisted so hard.

Long term, I plan to screw the support board to the base and add a tie to the drill trigger, plugging the drill into a switched circuit. That way, I can set up the mill, switch on the drill, then dump in the malt with two hands.

I want to give a well-earned shout out to MoreBeer who have stood behind their products to an amazing degree! It's my #1 choice for beer gear, knowing that if I have a problem, they will take care of it.

Awesome
Works phenomenally. Biggest downside I see is the pain it is to adjust the gap. I use a feeler gauge, and you have to take the cover off to adjust it. Only downside I see so far. Major upgrade from my Barley crusher. Would score it 4.5 stars.

Great mill, though it'd be nice for the price to come with a file or two to set the gap. Also, I'd recommend a drill that's corded, because my ryobi cordless has to work pretty hard.
