3-roller monster mill. Drool. How's that baby treat you? Most likely my next purchase since my junk sucks.

Wow! Not sure I can commit that much since I am building my all grain system.

But it looks cool.

If you're building an all-grain system then a good mill is possibly the best invesment you can make in the entire project.

What's the difference in the 2 roll versus 3 roll systems ?

Very happy with my cheap Corona type mill here...I have used it for several years without issue.

I've also been getting great results with my $20 corona mill from Discount Tommy mounted in a $3 Home Depot bucket.

I love my barley crusher. Super glad I spent the money. On factory setting my efficiency went up 5-6%.

I bought a cheap corona mill. After modification, I am getting a very consistent 86.5% efficiency, so I cannot complain. Total bill came to about $35 including the threading tool to modify it.
