I am planning on getting a Barley crusher grain mill from northern brewer in the next day or two. Does anyone have any opinions about them, or recommend something better for around the same price range?

The barley crusher is raved about on HBT. Do a search and you'll get more threads than you can shake a stick at (if you were inclined to do so anyway). Go for it!

i just got the same crusher from austinhomebrew a few days ago. fits right over one of my old plastic fermenters or one of my mlt. it looks like it works. i won't be using it for another week.

sigh, the suspense is killing me.

Unless you have a problem with getting a complete, out of the box mill that WILL make your efficiency go up, you'll love it.

Actually the Barley Crusher w/ 15# hopper is 52cents cheaper from Northern Brewer w/ shipping. So if you had were ordering anything else (ie grain, hops,etc) it would only make sense to get it from Northern Brewer.

Now the Barley Crusher w/ 7# hopper is almost $2 more shipped at Northern Brewer but as I said before if you are ordering anything else it makes sense to take advantage of NB's $7.99 shipping.

I bought a Barley Crusher from Northern Brewer and its works great. Easy to adjust.
I use a 5 gallon bucket to catch the grains and have a electric drill I use with it.

I think it has a life time warranty.
