In my experience your drill won't laugh and walk away when the novelty wears off. Sigh, teenagers!

Whew. 20 lbs. of base grain has been milled. Holy sh!t that was a lot of work.

Next project is definitely attaching a drill to the mill. I'm sweating balls right now and am about to take my 3rd shower of the day.

It is a lot of work! My drill stopped working and I had to do the same thing a couple of weeks ago. I was worn out before I even started to brew. I bought one of those Harbor Frieght high tork/low speed 1/2 inch drills someone on here mentioned for my next batch. Definitely check that out. They had them on sale for $39 plus shipping (about $50 for me) I went through two 3/8" drills that were not up to the the task. This one is heavy!

Some folks from here need to go over to this thread. There's some of that anti corona ignorance going on in there, and I can't be the only one defending our beloved corona, and setting people straight.

Just used my Corona for the first time and got 88% efficiency.

Unfortunately, I took it apart and washed it afterwards. In the morning, after air drying I see that there is some rust present that I will have to scrape off. Guess I need to coat it with a little vegetable oil to keep it clean and rust free, and then just use compressed air to clean it in the future.

I'm sure you figured this out by now, but I see no reason to wash the mill. A dry rag to remove the majority of dust is the closest mine ever sees to a good cleansing. This is the ugly junk thread after all. BTW excellent eff. I'm still in the low 70s but it is a predictable low 70s, and i'll take it.
