The Cereal Killer Grain Mill gets consistently great feedback and is one of our Top Finds.

Milling your own grain… 1.  Gives you control over the crush of your grain.  That’s a big factor in efficiency.  A mill allows you to fine tune for your equipment and process.  2.  A mill allows you to save money by buying whole bags of grain.  3.  Freshly milled grain = better tasting beer. and… 4.  Mad street cred… 🙂
