Default Kitchen Aid Grain Mill

Anybody have the courage to try their wife’s Kitchen Aid Grain Mill attachment for husking their malts and specialty grains ?

My wife has a nice mixer that has a grain mill attachment...I bought my own mill

As far as I can tell, the key to a happy marriage is to use your own equipment to brew and do it outside

I find that keeping my wife in her place is the best policy, and I'm not afraid to say it....well at least when she's not around

In my house Brewing and cooking are both owned by me, otherwise i would be living on cereal and toast for every meal..

I don't want to pay $100 for the Kitchen Aid Grain Mill attachment unless I can find someone that actual used it with some success.

Sounds like it might be best to stick with a purpose built mill.

Yeah, for the money I'd just get a mill. Those mixers are nice and tough, but I ground ~45 pounds of grain last weekend. I wouldn't want to put it through that. There are nice mills out there for just a bit more.

I've had a couple of people email me or tell me that the KitchenAid attachment will work well for small jobs - partial mashes, etc. But for a large job or AG'ers - and if the attachment really is $100 - I think I'd just get a dedicated Corona or other mill.

If you go AG, you'll want a mill that has a better grind than a Corona and can be hooked to a drill so you don't have to crank.
