Pros: Ready to go out of the box, great crush
Recommended? YesUsed it for the first time at the factory setting, WAY better crush than LHBS. Had a substantial increase in efficiency, made my fly sparge go so much more smoothly, and my Vorlauf cleared super quickly. Awesome tool.
Pros: I used it directly out of the box. Worked exactly as advertised.
Cons: Wish the base was a bit larger. Handle could be longer.
Recommended? YesPrice of $127.79 included shipping. Did not ever plan on using thehandle anyway. I do wish the base was slightly larger. I would buy it again.
Pros: Sturdy materials
Cons: Doesn't mill
Recommended? NoIdiotic construction. The lever is almost round! How are you supposed to use that as a crank when it's almost round? The rollers are almost stuck. The hand crank just slips, and slips no matter how tight you fasten the screw. The only setting allowing the grain to pass is the widest, rendering the crushing utterly useless.
Unable to use it with a drill as well. Rollers are stuck and won't mill.
Based on the many positive reviews here I gather I have gotten a sour lemon, but I really regret this purchase at first glance.

Price: $0.00Product is great, customer service is the worst I have ever experienced. I ended up having to go through PayPal to get my money back as there was no communication from BC Products after numerous emails, no Phone number on their website and worst of all no product delivered after receiving the shipping notice from UPS. PayPal has an arbitration process which allows correspondence between seller and buyer. This was great and it got Tony's attention at BC Products however, they would never step up and accept accountability for their lack of response to emails and how they made my experience a particularly bad customer experience. Tony chose instead to use the forum to argue and call me a liar? I was very taken aback and simply escalated the claim within PayPal. PayPal refunded my money however, I'm out return shipping charges I found a BC at my local home brew store for less than BC's website price including shipping. Lesson learned for me, do not by directly from BC and patronize your local home brew store as much as possible. Love the BC product though! Relax and have a Home Brew!!!!!
Pros: Adjustable grain crush...two screws and a turn of two graduated knobs. The bottom wooden plate has rubber bumpers that secure it to the top of a 5 gallon bucket.
Cons: I've read that the factory settings will give a good crush, but mine had to he tightened a bit. I only mention this so first time users dont take for granted that its automatically set right.
Recommended? YesSaving money by buying base grain in bulk will pay for this mill in no time. I tried to upload a photo but the system seems to have a glitch. There is a photo in my equipment album. The mill comes with a removable hand crank. The crank comes off so you can use a drill to operate it. I use a drill and wouldn't even bother with the crank.
