The Original Barley Crusher MaltMill, the "Home Brewer's Best Friend" has proven to be just that. A high quality grain mill constructed using materials that will last a lifetime, 1018 Cold Rolled Steel for the rollers, 6061 Aluminum for the mill body and hopper, tool steel for the axles with Oil Impregnated bronze bushings.

Base easily fits a 5 gallon bucket.

Precision machining with Quality Control and a LifeTime Warranty assures the homebrewer that this will be the only grain mill they will ever purchase!

Details:

Rollers are adjustable at both ends to keep the gap spacing parallel giving a uniform crush along the entire length of the rollers. 

The gap default setting is marked and set at .039 at assembly. Adjustment range is from .015 to .070 thousands of an inch. 

The rollers have a 12 TPI knurl to efficiently pull the grain through the rollers while leaving the hull intact to form an excellent filter bed for sparging.

Comes with a solid base with locators to center the Barley Crusher on a 5 gallon plastic pail. (Pail not included) 

The standard hopper holds an even 7 pounds and the optional large hopper holds 15 pounds. Using a 3/8 drillmotor at 500 RPM gives you a crush rate of 6 pounds a minute making the big grain bills fast and easy. 

The Barley Crusher is shipped fully assembled. There are no adapters needed to use a 3/8 drill motor.

The Barley Crusher is NOT designed for cracking/milling corn

Rubber Ring Broke on First Crush
This is my first grain mill and I used it for the first time to crush 14 pounds of grain with the hand crank and it did well (for reference, this was about 5 hoppers-full when filled about 75%). I decided to double crush the grains and on the second round through the rubber ring that makes the second roller move broke. This was not unexpected, as the instructions state the ring is not necessary for the mill to operate (though I expected it to last longer). This is mostly true in that the friction of the grains will turn the second roller (especially on the first crush), however on the second crush the second roller didn't turn when the hopper was close to empty because there was not enough pressure to turn the second roller. This made it difficult to finish the crush since the grain was not pulled through like when both rollers were turning. Otherwise this appears to be a sturdy grain mill.

Barley crusher
Great product that does the job perfectly. Efficiency went up 12% compared to LHBS crush right from the box.

Crushed!
Was considering the Cereal Killer but knew that the Made in U.S.A Barley Crusher was the only right thing to do! This unit is a work horse and I'm glad to have it in my brew arsenal. Quality through and through Period!!

2 years and ~50 10gal batches later
I bought this mill over 2 years ago, and have milled around 50 10 gallon batches worth of grain. I use a cordless drill to run it (1st gear). I've been getting amazing/scary efficiencies by conditioning the grain and running a .030 - .032 gap. Watch out for rocks! And don't forget to tear it down and clean/lube it once in a while.

Barley Crusher Mill
Works great. I just finished 16# at a 032 setting (fine) and it crushed in a few minutes using a drill. Great product and easy to use.

Barley Crusher Grain Mill
This was a replacement for my old cast grain grinder. So far I have been very pleased with the new grain mill, it is about twice as fast and requires much less cleanup.

Barley Crusher Grain Mill
This mill works well. I bought The Barley Crusher Mill because I was familiar with it having used one at my LHBS many times. It is made well and I expect to use this mill for a very long time. I am very satisfied with my purchase and AIH has the best price I could find. Thanks....SteveB

Very nice
Just what I was looking for, the mill performs great and I highly recommend. Only problem was the base broke during shipping, not the best design and material. Homebrewing.org packed it very well so not their fault but the shippers got it anyway.

Works great, great efficiency booster
I had always asked for crushed grains from wherever I bought them and I found my mash efficiency came out around 65%. My first time using this grain mill my mash efficiency went north of 75%. It's easily adjustable if you get a feeler gauge (very inexpensive), and I like having the control over my crush and seeing the results first-hand as I go. No last minute brew day surprises. This mill is solidly built, fits a 5 gallon bucket just right, and is a good value for the money in my opinion.
