Pardon my ignorance, but I am looking to buy a 2-roller Monster Mill that will be motorized but I can't figure out why the 2" roller is so superior to the 1.5". Is it really worth $60 more?

From what I've gathered a larger diameter roller pulls the grain in and crushes it without shredding the huskes up and this supposedly makes for better filtering and less stuck sparges.

As to whether or not it's worth the extra $ for .5" larger diameter that may be a matter of opinion rather than of fact.

My personnal opinion is that more than anything it's Fred trying to differentiate his mill from Crank n Stien's. But I like Fred and I would buy his mill if I didn't already have one.

I know your pain, it was 5 months before I had time to build a base for my MM-2. Whatever the wait, it will be worth it the first time you run that baby.

Ehhh, the CandS was/is available with 3 rollers.
From what I can tell, they are only 5" long where as the whole MM line is 6".
