Ice cream get's pretty thick and heavy in the process.. considering this.. do you think one of these motors has enough torque to run a grain mill? They certainly run at a low enough speed.. (too low?)
Way too slow.

HLT. In some herms the coil is suspended in the HLT to heat the wort flowing through it. The HLT water determines the mash temp. Supposedly not stirring the water in the HLT could cause the wort to get too hot in one location and too cool in the other.

Personally, I don't think there is enough time for the wort to overheat/underheat while going through the coil, but I have never tested it to know.

Interestingly, I was watching a vid a few months ago where an Ozzy used a windshield wiper motor with a 120v to 12v device to run his.. I wouldn't have thought of that.. Might make a great DIY.

HIACK OFF
The ice cream motor is way too slow and way too underpowered to crush grain. I'm still racking my brain for something cheap and easy to use for that though.
