As for a mill, you definitely need one if you're going to buy grain in bulk. Crushed grain doesn't keep as long as uncrushed grain. I picked up a Barley Crusher for $113 from Austin Homebrew. It works great and I love it. If you have more money to spend, you can look at other mills (Crankenstein, MonsterMill etc.) or if you want to spend less, people have gotten great results with the Corona mill too.
I'm getting to the point where I'm realizing that once you get your equipment and process dialed in, it almost doesn't matter what you're using -- you'll end up with really good beer!
