There is this new site out there called Google, it is a wonderful thing

This may be my next purchase for my brewery. Got to get it approved by the SWMBO.

Fantastic piece of equipment. My batches are usually about 12#, and I can't crush a whole batch with one 14V battery. I now use a corded drill.

As was posted earlier, my efficiency went from the low 70's to the low 80's with this crusher. That is with batch sparging.

I would definitely recommend this crusher!

I'm really confused. on that website there isn't a shopping cart to order. do you just mail a money order to that address or what? That seems like one hell of a grain mill for the money. Is the deal too good to be true? from what everyone here has posted it seems to be a KICK @$$ deal! Just mainly confused on how to order one....

I think I'll do the same if I ever get enough scratch to buy one. Hand cranking a mill is like pulling the arm of a slot machine. Ain't no substitue for good old mechanics.

My 18V Ryobi does 22# with juice left over for a bit, but I do have my old Craftsman corded which comes in handy when I forget to have a battery charged.

It really is a great little mill, I've had mine for over a year now and its still going strong, I've always hand cranked it but am seriously looking for a good corded drill. The small beers are pretty easy but my shoulder takes a beating on bigger beers.

I got mine when I switched to AG brewing but I think the crusher would be great for extract brewers as well, you can get your LME and DME in bulk and stock your specialty grains and crush when needed.
