Default Just got the new "Cereal Killer" Grain Mill

Just opened up the box and finally got a look at the "new and improved" Cereal Killer grain mill, I'll be giving it a test run for a brew day this weekend. looks fairly solid for a $99 mill. and pretty much ready to roll right outta the box,... stainless steel bearings instead of bronze bushings, Hardened adjustable rollers, has some sticky crud on the outside i gotta clean off??..., Thought I'd post a few photos for anyone that was wondering like i was, figured at the price , it was worth a risk, Time will tell!!

I'm curious to see how it performs for you. I had one of the earlier models which ended up getting replaced. Hopefully they've made some major improvements!

I got mine a couple days ago. Same as yours, it's got some gunk to clean off.

The only problem with mine is that I went ahead and ordered the additional handle, and that handle doesn't fit. Oh well. I'll be using it with a drill almost exclusively anyway.

EDIT: I contacted Adventures in Homebrewing about the problem with the handle and they got back to me within 10 minutes and said they'll send a new one out tomorrow.

I didn't bother with the handle, thought about it for a back up, but I have a few drills and new i'd NEVER use it! Ha! the gunk cleaned off ok, it was only on the outside luckily. seems like it's real easy to adjust! should stay true! I'll find out Friday !

it worked great!! Quick!! it was smooth too! stainless ball bearings instead of the brass bushing might be a good thing as they might last a bit longer.says it has hardened rollers too. really easy to adjust, and stayed where it was set. only one brew so far, and my efficiency was 79%,.went up from usually 65-72..still have some volume things to dial in with my set-up but that's another story! doing another brew tomorrow morning, and cant wait! It's a new toy!! for $100 delivered , it'd be hard to beat! ..

(Edit; brewed this weekend with an 83% efficiency)

I got one through the pre sale so i only paid $89. Was worth the wait.

Nicely made for the price with everything you get(base and hopper). Crush is much better than my Corona. Working on getting my gap setting where it needs to be.
