What does Rebel's 0.027 gap crush look like when compared side by side with the Barley Crusher's 0.039 gap crush? I'm sure they have it dialed in for a very good efficiency but visually is there a difference? I plan to replace my BC with one of these but still would like to see a few pictures of the results!

Also got mine on Saturday. Crushed 17 lbs of 2Row and Wheat in no time and the crush was very good. Used it again on Monday at a friends and also. This thing will last a lifetime for me. Can't wait to brew again next weekend with it.

After crushing a few batches on mine, I have 1 complaint. I haven't read through the entire thread to see if anyone else has, as there is way too much crap in here to wade through.

Here is my 1 issue - The cutout in the wood base is not as big as the opening in the bottom of the mill. That sounds petty, and it really is, but when it comes time to clean the mill up there is a little shelf in there that grain likes to sit on. If the opening in the wood were just a bit wider, that would be eliminated.

I plan to take mine apart and enlarge the opening.

So I was sitting out on the patio following the Mantra RDWHAHB… and I saw some branches on the ground and began day dreaming about getting out the Mill and making Mulch. Is that just wrong on what?

just got my order submitted for this mill. definitely not cheap, so I hope it is as good a mill as people are saying. I have 3 all grain batches I can't make until this thing arrives.

I got mine yesterday. I can't wait to use it next weekend. Project this weekend: motorize it and build a stand.

Used mine for the first time today. Crushed quickly and perfectly. I had to vorlauf far less than when using the mill at lhbs.

I'm only 30 min into my 90 min boil and already approaching target gravity though. Looks like high efficiency.

Great mill.

I did the Can You Brew It recipe for Green Flash IPA. The efficiency target for a starting gravity of 1.069 was 72%. I blew past there with a starting gravity of 1.084. I'll be brewing another batch sometime this week and am curious to see if this high efficiency repeats.

Plan on it. Since purchasing this mill, I've had to set my software at 83% efficiency in order to hit the numbers.
