I agree great product, well built and one of the better Mills I have ever seen. Rebel Brewing hasn't even been on here in over 6 months to even give an update so it seems they don't really have a clue to when it might be available again. I'm glad I got one when I did.
The Hopper would be nice, but not a huge deal. So you need to reload it once for a 5 gallon batch, no big deal as it holds 7 or 8 lbs. as it is.
