I absolutely love my MM2

It plows through whatever I throw at it and has never had a single hiccup.

Good to know! Did your efficiency change when you started milling your own grains?

Got a Rebel Mills Grain Crusher from Rebel Brewing in Tennessee. Unbelievable mill. Solid as a rock.

Sold my Barley Crusher (last year) and got a Monster Mill MM2-2.0... Beats the snot out of a BC and has longer (and larger diameter) rollers than a C&S... GREAT customer support from Monster Mill too. Both pre-sales and post-sales...

When the MM2-2.0 is going I swear I could feed it a person and it would just run right through it.

Something else to think about... Base and hopper... I got the base, hopper, and hopper extension at the same time as the MM2-2.0... No worries using the base, and the hopper (fully assembled) will hold up to 39# of grain. Since I've already had recipes with almost 29# to them, this was a great investment (for me). The hopper from Monster goes together with included screws and locknuts. Super easy to assemble. Plus, it's heavy gauge metal.

I can vouch for the excellent service from MM. That alone gives them a leg up on the comp. in my book. Great mills too.
