Love the Barley Crusher. Works great with hand crank or drill. I wish I had purchased this years ago. I am now able to buy bulk grains and crush them as I need.

Amazing Grain Mill
I have been all-grain brewing for years. Purchased my barley crusher in 2010, and I only recently started having very minor issues, all stemming from the fact that I suck at maintaining equipment. I brew two to five 6 gallon batches per week, and never once oiled or cleaned the bushings ... Two months ago, it failed during grind. Took it apart, cleaned and oiled bushings, has worked amazingly well ever since. Best money I've ever spent. ;-)

Reap the benefits of all grain
Strong mill with a big hopper - I fill it up, grind away, and get a good crush and high efficiency.

Grinds up my grain in no time
I use a drill and can grind up 12 pounds in a few minutes. It takes longer to measure everything than it does to grind it. I like having it since it gives me freedom to add anything I like.

Great value, and made in America too!
My girlfriend bought this for me as a Christmas gift, and it works great! The preset gap gives a perfect crush every time, and the mill unit is very solid. I would definitely recommend mounting this unit on a counter top, as trying to hold it on a bucket while hand-cranking is a pretty big hassle.

All Grain
I started brewing all grain last year and got this mill this summer. It gives me complete freedom to make any recipe at any time. It cracks the grain well and it well built too.

Holds a lot of grain
It holds pretty much all the grain I need for a 5 gallon batch. The only exception is I might need to add a little more for a high gravity beer. Its a good mill that I use almost every week.

Great to have
It seems like every time I buy a new piece of brewing equipment I can't imagine why I was ever doing without it, and this is no exception. In the past I had always gotten my grains pre-crushed, usually from Midwest - with the addition of my new crusher my mash efficiency jumped from typically around 65% to 70% to a whopping 96% mash conversion efficiency (Golden Promise Malt). In the past I didn't really believe the 90%+ conversion efficiencies I read on the forums; now I do. When I tried out my new crusher I had mostly uncrushed malt, but also had some of the same malt previously crushed by Midwest to compare: My crush was definitely more even, with fewer uncrushed grains and less flour. I then ran the pre-crushed Midwest malt through my new crusher and it definitely came out looking more even. I would also add that I found crushing my own malt to be really enjoyable: It was no effort - I just chucked on my cordless drill and ran it about as slowly as I could. The crushed grains looked and smelled so nice, and there is the added convenience that uncrushed grains can be stored for a long time. I dithered between the bigger pricier hopper vs the smaller cheaper one. I went with the big one based on other reviewers regretting getting the small one, combined with my own observation that when I try to go cheap on brewing equipment I usually regret it - I still don't feel strongly, but am happy with the bigger hopper.

Its a good mill
It holds the entire grain bill and while it takes a while to crank it (ok - a long while) , it gets the job done. It cracks the grain well. The only downside for many buyers is it takes a while to manually grind up the grain. I don't mind it, and do it in stages as I prepare for the next days brew day. Otherwise buy a drill.

Good mill
It gives a good crush and is easy to use. It takes a while to grind, but it works, and I don't need a screw driver. Just a good old fashioned mill that gets the job done.

I am trying to create a wet rice flour (rice cake). Is it possible?
A K on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is not the correct kind of mill for milling. A mill like this should only be used for crushing malted grains. Sorry I don't think this is right for you, and if I understand it correctly, using this mill per your intent would void its warranty.
Will this mill grind other grains?
J P on Jan 18, 2016

Thank you for choosing Midwest Supplies! That mill is only meant for malted grains, most other grains will be too hard and might damage it. I hope that this helps, have a great day!
