Ends Soon: Barley Crusher Malt Mill Sale

Homebrew Malt Mill Barley Crusher

Barley Crusher Mills on Sale at MoreBeer

from MoreBeer: “The Barley Crusher is an extremely reliable mill, ready for a lifetime of use with minimal maintenance. It comes with a hand crank, or can be attached to a 3/8″ drill if you’d prefer that. It has adjustable cold-rolled steel rollers enabling you to crush your grain exactly how you like it, allowing for more consistent brewing and efficiencies.”

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… :)

I’ve used the Barley Crusher Mill for years and years.  Not sure exactly when I got it, but I’m pretty sure it was sometime in 2008.  That same mill continues to work great.  I can highly recommend this mill from personal experience.

MoreBeer has the Barley Crusher marked down to $134.99 and it ships for free.  No promo or coupon code is needed.  This discount should be reflected on the product page.
