I would like to have a mill for crushing grain for brewing. I would also like to have a mill for grinding corn into meal or wheat into flour. Can I do both with a single mill? What do I need to look for? Any recommendations?

I tend to shy away from single purpose machines. I also prefer human power where possible.

Yes, you can use one grain mill for both. The only difference is distance between the rollers or plates (depending on your mill). Set them close for flour and further apart for cracking grain.

There are, of course, other opinions:
