After many years of service, my Barley Crusher just wasn't milling
my grain like it used to. I kept having to widen the gap in
order to mill grain, so I decided to start looking at new mills.
After weighing several options, I decided to go with an MM-2 from
Monster Mills. So far, it has been working great. I saw
about a 10% increase in my efficiency with the new mill. It's
built like a tank and tears through grain. The only word of
warning is to be sure you have a beefy drill to drive the mill.
After a few times of milling with my cheap Black & Decker corded
3/8" drill, the motor in the drill gave out. I've got a more
powerful 1/2" drill on the way now, so hopefully it will hold up a
The mill is still going strong after almost 5 years! I've only
cleaned it a couple times after buying it, mainly because I'm lazy,
and it's still working like the day I bought it. I HIGHLY
recommend this mill to anyone looking to start buying grain in bulk
and crushing it at home
