That's fo' shizzle. My 18v cordless couldn't turn wheat through it. You do get a fantastic crush out of it though. I've yet to get lower than high 70's on efficiency.

Beauty. I bought un-crushed grains this time so things would be as fresh as possible. I couldn't remember which model you had purchased, I just remember being a wee bit too late to grab the Corona from you!

That Barley Crusher looks like a good deal. Is it easy to hook up an electric drill to it?

Absolutely nothin to it. Remove the handle and on goes the drill. No modifications needed at all.

Just bought the barleycrusher last week. It's en route. Decided to go with it based on reviews and research.

I bought the Barley Crusher because it was the best bang for the buck. It works great with an electric drill.

I gotta ask....


does anyone here actually use their handle instead of a drill? Do your arms look like Popeye's?
