I have an MM3 and love it. Have not used the BC, so I can't really comment, but building your own hopper or stand for it is VERY easy if you are even remotely handy. And the size and shape of the hopper ain't that important unless you are motorizing the mill with a good motor, since you'll be scooping grain in there by hand anyway.

I hand crank my Barley Crusher and did not opt for the larger hopper. I simply fill the regular hopper twice for my 10-14 lb grinds. Takes me about 5 min to hand crank the grain and works like a charm.

I have the MM-3 and I love it its the only mill I have used so comparing it to others is tough. I was at the LHBS and I saw the barley crusher there for the first time. It looked very solid with similar components to the monster mill but looked very small compared to the monster mill. I think that the monster mill will outshine the BC in the long run but both mill will do the job very well.

Hey Redketchup,

Did you end up ordering it from this website? Do you know of any other place in Quebec where they sell it?

I fitted my Barley Crusher to a portable folding work bench, it has legs with a cross bar that hold a bucket right under the mill, almost like it was made to hold a BC.

I then use a low speed drill motor to turn it.

Can not see that a home brewer would need a bigger mill, it is adjustable and enlarging the smaller hopper can be done in a million different cheap ways.

Reason: typo
