Grain Mill... Cereal Killer or Barley Crusher MaltMill?
I'm looking to purchase a grain mill. It looks like you can get the Cereal Killer from Homebrewing.org for $89 and free shipping. Is that a good grain mill or should I spend more and get the Barley Crusher MaltMill? Is the Cereal Killer a good value? Is there a big difference? Thanks!

I just got my Cereal Killer this week and I struggled with the same thing. I have not used it yet but there was another thread that talked about it at length and the general thought that the Cereal Killer was a very good value and work very well. Is it better then the Barley Crusher (or just as good) that I am not sure. Only time will tell.

This should help you: Cereal Killer v. Barley Crusher

thanks. I'll probably get the Cereal Killer and see how it goes.

I have a crankandstein 2s and love it. Know you were not looking at that brand but thought i would throw is out there. Some people get the 2a for easy adjustment but the crus for the 2a is great at the normal setting.

I have a monstermill mm2 which I think is great. I got lucky because my mom went into the LHBS and that was the model that they had and she bought it for me for Christmas. I think the lhbs's in store mill is a maltmill and the monstermill is definately higher quality. You'll surely spend 2x as much as the cereal killer so if budget is the biggest concern I'd go cereal killer if I just wanted a really good mill I'd probably go for the mm3 (3 roller monster mill)

I like to Buy things that are made in the USA myself. Speaking of the Cereal killer that is.

As the maker of the barley crusher, you aren't the most objective figure on this topic are you?

Is your sole reason for having an account on HBT to trash the cereal killer? All three of your posts seem to indicate such.

Pulled the trigger on a cereal killer tonight - I think the mill at my LHBS is part of my efficiency problems... Almost bought a MM2 - but the Cereal Killer for half the price from AIH, I'll give it a try..

I went with the cereal killer myself. I have about 1000+ lbs of grain through it so far. No issues at all so far. It solved a lot of my LHBS efficiency issues. Next step get yourself a good scale. That was my next issue my grain weight was never correct due to their crap scale.
