Default Grain mills

I am thinking of buying a grain mill. Any advice on brands and features to look for.
Sorry posted in wrong spot.

I dont hink you can go wrong with a Crankenstein, Barley Crusher or Monster Mill.

They will all do the job well and probably outlast us all.

The most popular appear to be the Barley Crusher, the Crankandstein and Monster Mill. If you Google any of those you'll get their website. If you run a search on this site you'll get several hits where people are discussing them.

1. Please search - either use the search button, or look around for a bit, this is a topic we talk about a LOT.

2. Please do not double-post.
