First off sorry if this is a repost but i search/post from my phone and its hard to go through tons of pages to check. I need some ideas on finding or making a grain mill. I really dont want to shell out a hundred dollars for a mill. Anyone know where i can find something that could work for me? Im excited about my trans. in to all grain brewing. Thanks in advance.

A simple corona-style mill works great if you take the time to adjust it when you first get it. You should be able to find one for ~$20-$30 on ebay.

OK, queue the barley crusher fanboys!

Well, I started cheap with a Marga Molino 3-roller mill but after trying to adjust it to a proper crush with a Dremel I bought a C&S 3D...
I am sooo satisfied!!

I've never heard of anybody who bought a roller mill and was not happy with it. Except:

I vote for JSP (Schmidling) just to be different.
