Default Millars Grain Mill reviews?

These look great for the price. $99 with free shipping and they include a free scoop with that. They are adjustable rollers and it's a 7lb hopper. If anyone has used these I'd love to hear your feedback. Thanks

It's hard to tell from description because there are very few specs given (length and diameter of the rollers?). I just got this one from Adventures in Homebrewing, which is currently priced at $99 delivered. I haven't used it yet, but it looks good.

No specs but it looks darned close to a BC. Maybe a copy? Never heard of the company tho.

Default well I'd love to read any reviews.

But I just ordered one, so if none appear I may get around to posting one myself.

Every other store seems to be out of stock of these so I pulled the trigger on one too. Their payment method is paypal so I used my paypal credit card, instead of cash through paypal, for some protection in case this goes south.

Default if you can wait another month.

But that's the most impressively low price I've seen anywhere. Holidays must be grain mill times.

Default well. I'll tell you this

I ordered the 18th, and just came home and saw it on my doorstep.. in a medium sized priority mail box.. so that's pretty good fulfillment time . It's pretty easy to assemble. Smells of machine oil, so I think I might just run a pound through first and throw it away. as far as the adjustments go you can go from interlocking ie turning one wheel turns the other to what looks to be an 1/8 or a 1/6 of an inch wide.. The quality of the knurling though I'm not as impressed by, one of the rollers looks like it has smushed points in areas. I don't know if that will help the grain get pulled though or result in an inconsistent crush.. having not bought a grain mill before.. but it looks pretty good and I'm sure it's way better than a corona.

Any updates on the Millars Grain Mill or the Cereal Killer Mill? Are they any good? Pros, Cons?
