Recommended? YesOverall great product. Grinds 15 lbs of grain in a matter of minutes.
Only suggestion for improvement is to upgrade the screws that you loosen to adjust the roller gap to stainless steel. The aluminum screws can easily lose their head with the slightest bit of over-tightening. Then when you use an easy-out to get the screw shank out, you can break off the tip of the easy-out inside the hole you drilled into the screw shank (despite having plenty of experience using easy-outs) requiring you to disassemble the whole thing and take the aluminum block to a machine shop to get the screw/easy-out tip out of the hole.
Pros: Very easy to adjust and use
Cons: I only grind three lbs. at a time
Recommended? YesFound this barely used on craigslist. It didn't have a handle(darn) and I saw a few specks of rust on the rollers. Since I plan to brew with all-grain I figured I'd pick this up. On the way home I bought ingrediants for a batch that I wanted to make that day and tried this out when I got home. I didn't bother with the (very)little bit of rust since I figured that the grain would scrub that off. After nine batches with an average of 2lbs. per batch ground the rollers are clean and working fine. DEFINATELY better than the crush I got at Bell's before I bought this. I see that they have bought one of these now. Too bad they don't have a Dewalt to run it
Pros: Quite a bit cheaper than the other options out there and has better features.
Recommended? YesComes with a crank handle that you will use exactly one time . After that, just hook it up to your favorite power drill and crush 15# in about 2 minutes! Fully adjustable gap, comes with either a 7# or 15# hopper, and a base that fits perfectly into the top of a bucket. Great product, and well worth the price after you buy grain in bulk for the first time. One of my best purchases yet!
Recommended? YesTop product - turns grains into perfect grist with just a bit of elbow grease.
Recommended? YesGreat Mill, easy to adjust and hook up a pulley/motor system. I will be making a larger hopper as I did not want to pay to the 15lb extension.
