Oh, how sweet it is! I don't know where the boss man ordered it from- he placed the order during the holidays and there wasn't a heck of a lot of time for discussion in the retail madness. But now this beast is in place, happily chewing through mountains of grain.
The hopper holds well over 15 pounds, so it's kind of funny to put an 8oz-16oz batch of steeping grains through the mill! The motor is enclosed in the cabinet, and the collection bucket (lined with a bag) goes down there too, keeping the dust and flour from going all over the store. 15 pounds of grain takes about a minute to crush.
I need to brew something crushed with this machine, but the results look good to the naked eye- well-crushed kernels, nicely separated husks, and a bit of flour. The results are far far better than putting a batch through the last mill twice.
Recent brews: Amber ale w/ honey malt, Dunkelweizen, Oktoberfest, Alt, Kölsch, English Brown, Rye IPA, Amarillo IPA. 55 gallons so far in 2013.
