Default mill

I've been al over the net looking for a decent mill, any suggestions?

I'm interested too. Trying to decode whether to buy a corona mill or a more expensive power crusher.

What's wrong with a Barley Crusher? They are sold all over the place, and conveniently fit on top of a brewing bucket.

I have a barley crusher and it works great for me. I have also read good reviews on the monster mill 2. IMO any decent 2 roller mill should do the trick. The money saved buying bulk grains and the added element of control is an added bonus.

I bought a Corona-type mill for $23 delivered when I started brewing all-grain 3.5 years ago. Never looked back.

I haven't used it for beer yet, but I have the grain mill attachment for my kitchen aid mixer, and it works pretty well.

+1 for the Barley Crusher. It's the real deal! But, there are other, very good mills that are more AND less expensive.

Just about everyone that has purchased the mill from Rebel Brewer loves it.
