I would crush my own grain at my LHBS, but I got tired of waiting in line to use the mill. Then the mill kept breaking down or wouldn't give you a good crush. I bought a BarleyCrusher and my efficiency increased from high 70's to mid 80's. This mill provides one of the best crushes I've seen. I crush over 20 lbs of grain for my 10 gallon batches in just a few minutes.

I used Brewmasters Warehouse's crush for many batches. I had no problems. They lean toward the coarse side, which was never a problem for me.

My LHBS is a lunchbreak away from work, so I conveniently go there whenever I plan a brew day. There has never been a line at the mill, and there are 2 mills available for use. The mill was recently adjusted so I no longer need to do a double crush. The LHBW has a wide variety of grains available, so I always brew with grains that were purchased and crushed within 2 or 3 days. Yes, I pay $1.40 pr lb but I beleive I am getting sufficient benefits. I am happy for people that own their own grain mill, but I see no present reason to obtain one.
