I did a lot of research on mills - it really came down to the controversy between Monster Mill and Crankensteins (do a forum search if interested) and I determined that I didn't want to take my business to either company as the bad blood turned me off (my personal opinion) so I went with a neutral party, Rebel Brewer and their Rebel Mill. No forum wars or controversy or bad blood spewed out on these forums being associated with that mill and I respect that.

Just my 0.02

My decision came down to the Monster Mill or the Rebel Brewer. I'm sure I would have been satisfied with either but not knowing how long I'd have to wait before the RB came back into stock I went with the MM-2. I used it for the first time this week. Worked like a charm.

Awesome job on the milling station. It's nicer than the one at my LHBS! I'm planning on getting a mill and building a station soon, will be following your design, no need to re-invent the wheel. I like the storage container, how many pounds of grain will it hold? Where did you get it?

Thanks for the comliment.

I bought the mill direct (well actually the wife got it for my for my birthday). They say the hopper will hold 30 pounds of grain. I do 10 gallon batches so it will hold more than I'll ever need.

The stand is made out of my old bathroom sink vanity. I put it on rollers so I can move it around. If you search my threads I have some more pics of it.

Hopper extension increases the base hopper capacity to 39 pounds of grain. I'll need to refill/top off the hopper when I make my epic barley wine this fall. Of course, that does depend on having a larger mash tun, but I digress.
