Ok I have read and researched and am still lost... My wife announced today I need to buy my own mill so I don't have to stand around at the brew shop and grind pounds of malt...I have looked at several online and read some testimonials but am still completely lost. I have two friends who are machinists and one who owns a metal fab shop so making one may be an option also...I have looked at barley crusher...monster mill..crankenstein...etc....keep in mind I am completely mechanically illiterate so it HAS to be simple....any sugestions?

Just talked to one of my machinist friends. Looks like we will be making a mill.

I am eyeing up the Barley Crusher
all ready to use, no need to make a hopper or cart for it, just throw it on top of a 5gal bucket and grind some grain. I have read alot of satisfied owners comment on these. they are comparably priced to other crushers, but are ready to go out of the box.

Barley Crusher all the way. Quality construction, best price. What else do you need?

Yep.. I collect hobbies and she is right there helping with whatever the latest venture is. She doesn't like beer much but will jump right in to do whatever needs done ( cleaning) when I brew.
