Grain Mill questions
So, I've brought up the grain mill purchase with my wife ever since I started brewing all grain, all to no avail. NOW she wants to start grinding her own flour since she is on a gluten free kick, due to a newly discovered allergy. Is there an adjustable 2 roller grain mill out there that we can "share"? Yes, I know it would need to be cleaned well between uses to remove the barley "gluten" from it.

Anyone have a suggestion on a product? Now that she wants it, it is a priority... women... I don't want a Corona mill, but I guess that would work.

Personally if she has a gluten allergy I would not use the same mill.....

See what they have.

Get separate mills. Allergies are no fun at all and you might not get it clean enough. You don't want her to have a reaction to something you missed.

Corona style mills are not very expensive and will work. They may not work as well or as fast as a roller mill but the price is right. Look at conditioning the grain before milling so you get intact husks. Grain mill on Amazon. I have one like this I use for BIAB and get about 80% efficiency. http://www.amazon.com/Hopper-Cast-Gr...rds=grain+mill

It's not like it's Celiac's disease, so it won't kill her. The allergy isn't "severe" at all. In fact, she is just looking to reduce gluten, not eliminate it.

I guess I'd still suggest different mills. Ones made for making flour from grains aren't really made for crushing grain for brewing and while they might work OK I suspect you would be frustrated before long. Take a look on Amazon using flour mill as a key word and then again using grain mill as your key word and see what come up. Research, research, research.
