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
  • 1144 alloy steel rollers

Malt Muncher High Torque Motor
Malt Muncher High Torque Motor
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but the mill and the motor don't have the same size shafts. So, you'll need to buy a flexible shaft coupling hub that'll allow you to match the two different size shafts. McMaster Carr sells them online. Their part number is 6408k14. You'll need two, one with 3/8" diameter and one with 12mm diameter. Then you'll need part 6408k75 to hold them together. Hope that helps.
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
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: The board that came with mine (about a year ago) is 12" square, with the hole toward one edge (so you can swing a handle).

(NOTE, I have since remounted mine on a larger board, so I could mount a motor.)
Can this mill down to flour size?
Roy Baker on Apr 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Roy,
Yes! I brew BIAB and you can definitely mill to flour if you want. Just make sure you have a hi torque slow speed drill to run it, and if you’re milling wheat in your grain bill, be sure to mix it real well or it can bind and stall your mill.
Also, be sure to recheck your mill gap before you use it. Mine has wandered, but only on one side. Hope this helps.

What is the capacity without the hopper extension?
JEFF M on Oct 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 11lbs. Awesome Mill too, never had any issues
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.

Excellent mill
I’ve used a cheap 2 roller mill for the last few years and this is so much reliable and so much faster. If you thinking about making the upgrade to a 3 roller mill you won’t be disappointed.

This thing is amazing
I had a two roller mill and wanted to upgrade. Let me tell you, this did not disappoint. Out of the box and got it set up in no time. The first thing i noticed was the sheer weight of this thing. I loaded it up with grain and fired it up. It shewed through it like the grain wasn't even there. The only bad mark I can give this is with the wooden base it comes with. I use a bucket to mill my grains. My cheap 2roller mill came with stoppers that held the wood in place. It was a nice addition to have that this one does not come with. Not a knock, just an observation. Overall I love this thing.

Monster Mill
I have so far only done a test crush on a few pounds of grain. I was impressed with the result. Nice crush of the kernel, leaving the husk intact. I'm looking forward to using it in an actual brewl

Had some problems on first use
Had intermittent issues getting this mill to pull in the grain after following Monster's MM3 setup videos for the mill and gap. Had the mill mounted square, had a consistent gap across, and verified all rollers could spin freely. First test run with 1-2lbs of grain went through fine. After filling the hopper with 11lbs shortly after, it started to feed some grain through for a maybe a couple seconds, then stopped taking the grain. Found similar cases online. Some suggested the mill was not square, the gap setting might not be even, or that grain particles could be getting between the roller and side plate, and binding up the free spinning roller. I ended up loosening the mill mounting bolts a little to give it some play, and was eventually able to get the mill to pull all the grain through continuously. I haven't used it again since, so my best guess is that the mounting position is highly sensitive to the side plates being a little too snug to the rollers, or perhaps just the slightest bit out of square. Not impressed so far, but hopefully this is all just user error on the setup, and I'll be able to get it to work.consistently going forward.

Love it!
Works like a charm! (Slight height difference in the motor & the MM3 even with the included bamboo board, fixed with what I had though) Love this thing. You have to adjust the gap with the hopper off. Not that bad since I won’t change the gap frequently at all. Assembly was easy and it even with the motor at 200rpm it still chews through grain quickly with a nice crush.

Best investment thus far
Probably the best investment so far, leading up to this point I have been having a lot of trouble with undershooting gravities, beersmith showing mash efficiencies of 51, after buying this mill and tuning the crush, I now hit 81% mash efficiency and my target gravities, giving me more confidence! Not hard to put together, tho the instructions are lacking if I am to be honest.
The extended hopper is well worth the upgrade

Monster MM3
Some reviewers have complained of the level of difficulty in putting the hopper together. Didn't really have any difficulty with the assembly. #1 Phillips and a 11/32 socket were the only tools needed to get the hopper together. The included exploded diagram shows how it all fits together. Just take your time . Screw heads on the outside, nuts on the inside.
While it may not bother some, consider running a file along the edges of the hopper pieces to smooth out some rough spots - nothing serious, just a few swipes with a mill file. (It's just stamped sheet metal.)
The mill itself comes assembled. Check the Monster Mill website for a very thorough tutorial on mounting the mill, adjusting the side blocks for proper operation. It also shows how to adjust the rollers for the desired gap. The visual in that video is much easier to follow than the printed instructions.
Before putting the hopper in place, set the gap, check end play and how freely the rollers spin. Again, all in that Monster Mill video and probably all over You Tube. I also took an old paint brush with stiff bristles to the rollers to remove metal flecks still left over from the machining process.
Good purchase. Very happy with it. Would do it again, but probably won't need to do so for a long, long time.
