A bit labor intensive but I consider it good exercise.

With some tweaking I was able to get this mill to give me a perfect grind for homebrewing. I had to replace the cotter pin with a bolt and I replaced the hand miller with a bolt and now the mill is powered by my handheld drill so I can grind 10 pounds of grain in 5 minutes. With enough tweaking this will work perfect for you, just do your research and know what you are getting in to before you purchase this item.

This mill is great for making porridge and other coarse grinds. I wouldn't suggest using it for making flour for bread.

It really needs to be bolted down to a plank, so don't expect to use the screw clamp to much effect.

It's much easier to operate if you don't fill up the hopper. Just keep a cup of grain and sprinkle some in when you're ready for more. This is really easier than it sounds.

I think whole-grain porridge is a great way to go for breakfast. Get a real organic whole grain meal, and ditch all the extra packaging, processing, preservatives, and shipping that you get with store-bought cereal. Plus, it's cheap. A pound of organic whole grain porridge costs fifty cents to a dollar and is real food. A pound of store-bought cereal has been de-germed, cooked, smashed, preserved, and stored for a year or so before you get it, and it's three or four dollars -- you might as well be eating dust.

I deducted one star because the grinding burrs are tin plated. I'd prefer steel or stainless steel. If I had this purchase to do over, I'd still get this general kind of mill, but I think I'd go with the Back-to-Basics mill because the burrs are stainless steel.

After much hand-wringing about 2-roller vs 3-roller mills and gap spacing, I decided to try out this little guy. After all, if a corona-style mill is good enough for Papa Charlie, it should be good enough for me, right? Plus, I'm not out much if it sucks.

Anyway, it works just fine. Sure, it's a little slow going. Also, the hopper only holds about one pound of grain, which I grind by hand. It's too bad Amazon doesn't offer the larger hopper option, which it turns out is available according to the in-box literature. A typical grain bill of 12 pounds or so takes me 20 minutes to grind, but I don't mind it too much. There's something very zen about doing it by hand.

If that's not your thing, this can be EASILY modified to adapt a drill. You'd probably want to get a bigger hopper, though; otherwise, what's the point?

One thing it took me a few minutes to figure out: not pictured here is a black plastic insert that comes with the mill. At first, I was grinding away and malt was flying EVERYWHERE. I was thinking, 'If only there was some sort of shroud over the outlet of this thing...", and then I looked in the box. Of course. So don't forget to install that inside the piece that adjusts pressure. Just look at it; you'll figure it out.

It takes a while to get the right crush, but I seem to be getting between 70 and 75% efficiency. I bought this thing to grind the grains I now buy in bulk, and it paid for itself the first batch. Probably one of the most effective $35 I've spent on equipment, aside from the mash tun.

I've also noticed the crush is relatively terrible (approaching non-existent) if the auger isn't flooded... meaning, the very beginning and end of your crush will give you nearly-intact grains. Don't run one full hopper through..

This product is not worth $35. I purchased it because it had free shipping and I had a gift card so I ended up paying about $15, which is closer to what it is really worth. This is made in Columbia and comes with no paper instructions; there are brief instructions in spanish and pictures on the inside of the box. Thankfully it is pretty simple to figure out. It is crudely made and the adjustable grinding disc will not give you a fine grind for flour. It does not have pads on the vise so is likely to scratch your countertops unless you improvise a cushion. I bought this for emergencies, such as a prolonged power outage. It does a fair job grinding coffee beans. I wouldn't recommend this for people who cook a lot from scratch.
