Now that's a good crush. What mill did you use?

Just a basic CrankAndStein from about 2006. Works great, never had a problem.

Maybe this is just a ploy to sell more mills, working well for them.

Sorry, but I wouldn't call shipping you 50 lbs of the wrong product, and then selling you a mill to fix the problem even with a free ship, "stepping up".

Might be. However it cost them $120 to overnight it. They were going to ship me replacement grain, I asked them to credit me the amount they would lose for product and shipping.

I wanted a mill in the future and saw an opportunity to get a deal. Plus, not sure what I would do with 200 pounds of grain in the short term since I am moving in two months.

Wow! that is crazy a$$ money
I stand corrected, thank you. That is certainly a good faith effort to fix the problem!

Agree...good of them to admit the mistake and offer to ship you replacement grain. That was 3/4 of the reason that I got a mill. I found that my OG was all over the board using various mail order, pre-crushed or crushed locally grain.
