So anyone know of a good place to get a nice electric, or manual grain mill? I wanna try to keep it in the $50 dollar range. I've come to realize that I need one.

I can't seem to find a used one anywhere. I've checked the paper, craigslist, thrift shops, goodwill, ect. No luck.

I'm not sure about where to get one, but the online vendors have them. Manual is fine, since you can hook your drill up to it, and then it now becomes electric(or battery powered, for that matter)!

If you need help cracking your grains, you should try to find that dude, Jimmy. From what I heard, Jimmy crack corn, but I don't care.
I use a mortel and pestle to crack coriander, and it is still a pain. I wonder how long it would take to crack enough grain for an all-grain batch with a small mortel and pestle... It would take the patience of a monk.
