You'll love that mill! I've got the MM2 with 2 inch rollers and it's a great piece of equipment!

I've been kicking around the idea of getting a mill.
Other than a sack of two row what other grains would a person purchase a fair quantity of to keep them from ordering for a while and still be able to brew a variety of styles?

I buy 2-row by the sack. When I buy supplies for recipes, I always just buy a pound or two extra of he specialty grains. Having some packets of SA-05 dry yeast in the fridge is a must too. This way, on a whim I can have a brew day.

Exactly. Made an ipa with us 05 and one with Nottingham when my liquid yeast froze. The us 05 is every bit as good as the Cali liquid. The Nottingham is real dry but not bad still.

I guess after you get all the tools you focus more on the materials.
I've just been getting kits trying to get the process down paying more attention to the style of beer rather than whats in it.

I have the MM2 with hopper and love it. It makes brew day a little less stressful as the crush is fresh on the day when I am ready.
