Default Anyone have a grain mill I can use for a few minutes?

I have what I thought was an extract & crushed specialty grain kit I was going to brew on Sunday . . . turns out it's an uncrushed partial mash kit, and my Barley Crusher isn't due for a few weeks (darn production delays!). Just tried the rolling pin/freezer bag approach on half a pound of the 5 pounds of grain, and am pretty unhappy with the results. Anyone in the Eastern half of the state have a grain mill I can use to quickly crush these grains?

I'd find a lhbs. I'm sure they will help you out.

This happened to me once. Its the reason I got my mill.

If you want to travel to Foxboro this afternoon you can crush up your grains at The Witches Brew. I'll be there Noon to 5.

Sounds like a FLHBS just offered. This is also the reason I have a mill on order

Thanks, Paul! I've been meaning to stop in and check The Witches Brew out - my brew buddy is down in Warwick, RI, so you guys are right about in the middle! I'm working until 3:30 today, but will head down as soon as I finish up in the shop, which should get me there before 4:30.
