Got my new Barley Crusher yesterday, and just finished up milling my grain for a 10 gal batch of Haus Pale Ale. Did all 21 lbs of grain in less time than it usually takes me to get the old Corona set up and adjusted - 20 min from set-up to clean-up, including attaching the handle.

Remember getting a new toy as a kid and wanting to sleep with it for the first few nights? That's what I'm gonna do. I love this thing!

Wait til you keep the handle in the closet and just chuck a drill onto the shaft.

Get a drill it's much easier and quick. Just used mine for the first time last week and I also love it.

The first time I used a drill on mine about a month ago I for some reason engaged the drill without holding down the Barley Crusher (with a full hopper). Needless to say, I'm still finding grains on my kitchen floor.....

Ya the barley crusher is much nicer then the corona. Makes you laugh at the effort spent with that flour mill, wish I knew better and bought the BC first.

Just got mine and will use on Saturday. The directions say to run 1/2 lb of grains thru and toss. I understand the concept behind that, but does anyone really do that? Just wondering

Is this to get rid of any of the machining lubricants? what is the purpose? Mine is on its way and I am stoked.

Yeah, it's to clean the rollers of debris/oils. I used some stale Cherios that the wife was gonna chuck. It's grain right?
