Default Grain Mill broke at store

OK so yesterday I go and get 14lbs of grain and they will mill it for free. The miller breaks after the first 1/2 so now I have 13.5lbs to mill at home. It takes 1hour and 15 minutes 1 way to get to this store so I did not want to come away empty handed. Anyone have any ideas how to mill this at home. I have looked at grain mills but they are expensive and I am unsure what one to buy. Plus I need this milled by Saturday so I can brew. Thanks for the help!

Tom

pull out the rolling pin and prepare for a long night

Any other local brewers that have a grain mill?

That is the only shop with in 2 hours from me one way. It is a sad sad day!
I don't think I do well enough with the rollong pin. It looks far more cracked after going through a miller than rolling a pin over it in a plastic bag.

I like the corona mills. IMO the work well and the price can't be beat. The one below is in western Mass.


Molino Corona Corn/Grain Grinder - eBay (item 270284210746 end time Oct-13-08 17:40:07 PDT)

Heavy Duty Cast Iron Corn Grain Coffee Grinder Mill - eBay (item 220293262471 end time Nov-09-08 18:29:33 PST)

I like this one as the grinding plates are covered.
landers coffee, corn mill unique stone grinder old farm - eBay (item 120316857504 end time Oct-21-08 20:00:00 PDT)

Thread a bolt into the crank shaft and attach a beefy drill, viola a power mill. Look for a corn grinder locally and brew on!

Good luck!

You really should just wait and order a real mill. The "barley crusher" is great.

Get a mill designed for crushing barley malt. Go buy some good ale such as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale until the mill arrives.

I ordered it today. Should have it early next week! Thanks for the advice. I had looked at these before. I just wondered about the quality until I saw trhe lifetime warranty on the website.

Great choice on buying the Barley Crusher. It's one of the most popular malt mills on the market and for good reason. Do a quick search and you'll see thread after thread with nothing but praise for it. You won't regret it.

While you're at it, tell your homebrew shop to get a barley crusher too
