I got talked into buying a mill at my lhbs. Needed 32 pounds to try out a new 15 gallon setup I put together after christmas. The guy at the store explained that 32# would cost me 64 dollars at 2.00 a pound and a 50# bag from them would run me 65 dollars. It made buying a mill seem like the logical thing to do. Should have bought a mill early, the hand crank mill at the store was getting old. Electric Drill + Barley Crusher = Best tool combination ever!
