I got a good deal and bought a couple bags of two row. Of course I can't use them because I don't have a mill. Like a lot of people money is tight. But I don't want the cheapest I want the one that is the best over all value. I don't live that far from grizzly and could buy a corona for $25 bucks from them.

1. A mill is going to last for years.
2.A mill that has a good warranty.
3.A mill that is going to do a good job.

I paid $150 for my CrankAndStein 3-roller mill about 6 years ago and it is still going strong. I highly recommend it.

That's awesome but I spent like 40 for my corona "setup" and it will last a life time and that's 110 to buy other stuff

I love my Barley Crusher and it's lifetime warranty. It's ready to mill grain out of the box.

Well, I started with a Corona and it only lasted 3 batches (milling 10# each) before it died a slow and miserable death. I wouldn't buy one again, but that is my opinion.

One more for the barley crusher. I put it on my Christmas list a few years ago and Mom bought it! I'm loved.

Maybe you should have bought the $25 one instead of the $20 one.
