The Barley Crusher ROCK!! Great customer service, guaranteed, adjustable rollers, hopper, base fits on 5 gallon bucket, can be used w/ portable drill.

I have no complaints about the Barley Crusher. It works very well. I used it w/ the factory setting w/ no problems. I got a better crush once I experimented w/ the gap setting and got a higher effiency. Open the box, flip the handle around and start crushing your grain. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

I also have the 7# capacity hopper, the 15# option wasn't availible when I ordered. No sweat! Fill, crank, fill. This thing goes through grain fast so no biggie.

I ordered mine and it was in the mail the next day. SWEET!

Only the second Mill I ever used, the one and only I ever owned. Can't beat the price and shipping, this mill is awesome! Gets the job done each time. Isn't that what a mill is for? (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/tongue.gif)

Great mill - Love the simplicity

If you're doing larger brews - i.e. 10 gallons or more - consider the larger hopper - but not an issue really.

I've had one for about a year and I think it's an excellent mill. The only thing I can really gripe about is that it's a little clumsy to adjust the gap. But in reality, you set the gap and almost never have to touch it again so it's not that big of an issue. I'm not saying this is the best mill out there or that the others aren't any good. There are a lot of well-made mills available. This is one of them.

Great mill, great price and comes pre-fabricated so there's no putting things together. Plus after ordering mine, I received it from the company in two days!

I love my BC mill. I checked around a lot before buying and feel it can't be beat for the money.

The only change I made to mine was to modify the wooden handle so that it rotates while grinding (it comes rigid mounted on the crank).

This is my first mill, and I love it! Great service from the manufacturer, it came within a few days, and was ready to use out of the box. My efficiency went from ~68% to ~83% as compared to the grain crushed by my LHBS.

AND... it was the cheapest of all the roller-mill models I found on the 'net.

Got this about a year and a half ago as part of the big group purchase. The price was right and it works fine. It has taken its share of abuse and still works like a charm.

gotta love the fact that you can take it out of the box and start using it right away without having to build / fabricate / adjust anything
