Default You CAN Crush with a Burr Mill!

My Mom purchased a flour mill recently so I figured I'd try it for brewing. It's a burr-type mill, which I think is the same as the corona mills (at least similar).

I brewed with the crush pictured below and got 75% efficiency and it drained perfectly. I'm pleased!



Here's the mill:

Yeah, you're right, it took almost 30 mins. But that's about how long it takes to heat strike water on my stove, so it worked out fine.

Glad you made it work - fiddling with the grind is the big hassle - once set, it's good to go. Been brewing with a hand-crank Polish corona-type for 15 years. While a proper roller mill would be a nice thing, it's not a high priority, and is only going to happen on the overly backlogged DIY method, since this does work.
