I am looking into purchasing a grain mill. I am sure folks have some opinions on which one they like, etc. I appologize if this has been covered already. If it has, please point me in the right direction. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.

I have used the Phil mil for many years and have had good results with it. The reason I purchased it was that it was the most affordable of the roller mills.

I use the JSP (AKA Schmiddling) fixed gap roller mill and am very happy. I used to use a Corona mill, and was not happy.. I thought about getting an adjustable gap mill, but as I hardly ever use anything other than two row barley, I didn't see the point. It's definitely worth shopping around, as you can get some good deals occasionally.

Roller mills are the best, I'm told.
I use a porkert (corona type) mill and am satisified, not knowing any other type anyway. My mill/grinder was the cheap way out for me and like I say, I'm satisified.

I like the barley crusher. It 's about the cheapest of the roller mills. It's adjustible and comes fully equiped with a handle and grain bin. You don't have to buy an adaptor if you want to grind with an electric drill.

I put this on my Xmass list and guess what santa brought. One of these. It is a solid mill that works great! Unfortunately the person who gave it to me bought the handle... I would pass on the handle.

I also use the fixed-gap jsp maltmill and really like it. I got a smokin deal on it when my LHBS upgraded but I would have bought one anyway.

I'll put my vote in for the Barley Crusher
Life is to short and the liver can only handle so much, so why waste it on bad beer.
