I don't have the Corona but I was thinking about buying it. I'd really like a roller but I'm converting to all grain and kegging at the same time so I feel guilty dropping all this cash. I'm actually kinda stuck getting a mill now though because I picked up a 50lb sack of 2 row at the LHBS for the bulk savings. These mills seem to have good resale value though, a Phil's 2 went for $100 on Ebay just now.

I just finished my AG equipment build up and am now working on my kegging equipment. I feel your 'pain'.

I got mine from Northern Tool for around $21 shipped. Their website says it isn't available, but if you call them, they still do have it.

The item number is 168670

I rigged up a "Gilligan's Island" style exercise bike to grind grain. After a few minutes of turning that crank by hand, it did get a little tiresome, moving your arm in that big arc.

I would grind about 12 lbs at a time, and pedalling that bike was pretty easy.

I used a funnel made out of a cut out plastic laundry soap container, to keep the dust down.

I was looking to build a roller mill, when I dropped out of brewing back in 1993. I moved out of state, and lost my brewing space.

Thinking about starting up again...
