The MM looks and sounds bombproof. What about warranty issues? Any flaws or recommendations on upgrades?

I use the MM2, and the guidance on getting the gap honed in is 100% accurate. In the beginning, I was getting 60%, now I'm getting >80% efficiency, often hitting 85%...

Unfortunately it's still sitting on my workbench.

I've got all the parts to motorize it. Just don't have the time to assemble the whole thing.

What gap works with the MM2?

Default I have the c&s 2s and i would buy it again

I bought the c&s 2s which is the most basic mill he offers. I do not have anything to compare this to but it does everything i need. I mill 20 pounds at a time and it is plenty fast for me. I start my water heating and then i measure my grain and mill. It takes a few minutes and i have been using the factory setting with acceptable results.

I made my own hopper. The mill hopper assembly fits upside down in a five gallon bucket for storage. I don't see me advancing larger than ten gallons any time soon so this mill will meet my needs for a while.

I have not had to contact the mfg for any reason sinse purchase. Delivery was three weeks and he was very up front with that when i ordered.

Using factory gap on my MM2-2.0, four batches in. Efficiency looks good so far. Don't see a huge need to fiddle with it. All single batch sparge.

Batch 1 - 75.5% mash eff on pre-boil 1.044 (didn't sparge enough)
Batch 2 - 91.4% mash eff on pre-boil 1.038 (very heavy on maize in grain bill)
Batch 3 - 82.0% mash eff on pre-boil 1.039 (starting to get the feel for it)
Batch 4 - 72.3% mash eff on pre-boil 1.059 (feeling comfortable now)

I think Batch 3 and Batch 4 are what I'm going to see here on out. I expect efficiency to continue to drop half a percent for each .001 gravity, so I'd expect 62% mash efficiency at 1.080 pre-boil.
