Need a Grain Mill

Postby andytv » Sun Jan 13, 2002 6:35 pm

I've decided to toss out the Corona Mill (and all of the modifications that I made so it could produce a decent grind).
I've looked into the mills that are on the market and am unable to make a decision on a new one. Heres what I want;
1) Double roller design,2) adjustable grind width 3) large hopper, 4) easy to motorize. What do you guys think??? Suggestions?

JSP grain mill

Postby jwkempo » Mon Jan 14, 2002 10:26 am

I just bought a JSP mill. He has two models, one u can adjust, the other u cant (that's the one I have). I like it alot. Easy to use, cranks well. I can crack 20 pounds of grain by hand in about 10 minutes.

Make your own

Postby dartedplus » Tue Jan 15, 2002 6:19 pm

I wasnt happy with the crush I was getting at my local brew store so I'm making my own. Back about 5 months ago there was an articvle here at beertools about making one, so I drew up some plans and made one. Actually it will be finished in a couple of days. If you get in touch with Jeff who is one of the people running this site(I think) he is in the process of making and selling them. He gave me some insights into making my own but would not give up any proprietary info. If you like to do woodwork, give it a shot, if not, ask him how much he wantsw for the prefabbed kits.

JSP maltmill model AA

Postby arkiteqt » Sun Jan 27, 2002 8:37 am

I just purchased the maltmill model AA, it is adjustable at both ends of the roller, rather than just one end. I had to order direct from the manufacturer because the local shops never heard about the double adjustable model. It only cost $165 including shipping which is still $50 less than what local shops were asking for the single adjustment model.
