Default Kitchenaid mill grinder

Has anyone used one? My wife has the kitchenaid and I was talking about buying a grinder and she said "they have a grain mill for it" looked it up and I can pick one up for under $100. Does it work or should I get a different type?

TIA and (as I'm brewing my third 5 gal batch this morning!)

Do yourself a favour and go for a dedicated roller mill. The mill you are thinking about
is most likely a flour mill like a corona type and not as good as a roller mill.

For just a little extra you could get a roller mill, and like I said, it is far superior to a corona type mill. I know. I have, and I have used a corona knockoff for 6 years. I now have a Barley Crusher.

Cost of mixer $400.00
Cost of Grain Mill attachemnt $200.00

Look on wife's face when you blow the motor of said mixer-



Priceless.....

You might want to look at the links in the similar threads box below, this comes up every 6 months or so, very few people want to risk the cadillac of mixer's when for 150 bucks you can get a barley crusher, or for 20 bucks you can get a corona OR modify a pasta maker to mill your grain. They're really not meant to crush grain for brewing especially in large batches.

This is bull****....A corona mill for brewing is just as good as a roller mill. Heck, it's good enough for charlie papazian to get 89% efficiency with his.....

Has anyone ever heard of using a vita mix blender with the dry pitcher? My wife said I can use hers (instead of spending money on a mill) also states that in the manual.

I was going to buy one because you can adjust for a coarse grind but it will burn the motor out......

I didn't know he was getting that kind of efficiency. This makes that decision so much easier. Thanks Revvy.
