Two Roller Grain Mill – $69.17 + Free Shipping

Powder Filling Filler Machine 180w Autoweighing Adjustable Packing Speed Great

Two Roller Grain Mill

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

This DY-168 Grain Mill is constructed using materials that will last a lifetime. Cold rolled steel for the rollers, and 6061 aluminum for body and hopper and oil impregnated brass bushings. The grain mill is professional in grinding barley, wheat and other cereals. It is provided with adjustable 2 rollers which can be crushed cereal well and peeled shell off perfectly, so as to be good for brewing beer in future. The 2 rollers design has the main advantage that it draws the grain better and gives improved throughput.

This equipment is perfect for large batches and high efficiency milling. With two rollers, all your grain will be crushed twice in one cycle. The crush is through the fixed gap between the top two rollers. The initial pass slightly flattens the grain, getting it ready for the next crush that breaks apart the grains and loosens the starch with minimal husk damage.

The aluminum hopper can hold up to 11 lbs of grains and the roller body features an alloy block frame that houses three steel rollers on oil-impregnated bronze bushings. The drive shaft and all axles are integral to the roller, which makes clockwise or counter-clockwise drive possible. A hand crank is included, but the mill can be easily motorized with a corded electric drill. You don’t need any additional attachments, just stick the drill on and go. Stainless knurled knobs allow a gap spacing adjustment range of 0.070″. Adjusting is simple – just loosen the adjustment screws, adjust the gap and tighten the adjustment screws.

Note You will need to supply or build a base to set the mill over a grain bin or 5 gallon bucket.

  • Width and roller diameter is optimized for use with power drill
  • Adjustable rollers at both ends to give uniform crush
  • 12 TPI knurl to efficiently pull grain through rollers while leaving hull intact to form an excellent filter bed for sparging
  • 6″ long adjustable gap
  • Fully adjustable mill
  • 0.060″ fixed primary gap, 0-0.065″ fully-adjustable secondary gap
  • Dual eccentric adjusters built from stainless steel for no galling
  • 8 lbs / minute is average throughput
  • 6″ x 1.5″ diameter stainless steel rollers
  • Crankshaft can be turned clockwise or counterclockwise
  • Durable alloy frame
  • SAE 841 oil impregnated bronze bushings
  • Heavy-duty 2-roller mill with adjustable secondary gap-spacing
  • Integral drive shaft and axles
  • Mill can be hand-cranked or motorized with a corded electric drill
  • You will need to supply or build a base

Save On Consecration Kits – Includes Actual Consecration Barrel Chunk – In Stock and On Sale!

from MoreBeer… “Beer lovers rejoice! Vinnie from Russian River Brewing Co. has released his Consecration recipe to us, and we’re very proud to be able to offer it to the homebrewing community. Consecration is a sour dark ale aged in a Cabernet Sauvignon barrel. It is aged for 4 to 8 months with currants and brettanomyces. You can look for rich flavors of chocolate truffle, spice, tobacco, currants, and a bit of Cabernet.

What sets this kit apart from any other kit out there, is the fact that we include a chunk of an actual consecration barrel in each one! Whether or not the bacteria from the original beer will form their own colony in your beer is hard to prove right or wrong. Either way, we think it is pretty cool!”

Availability of Consecration Kits at MoreBeer can be touch and go (guessing this has to do with sourcing actual Consecration Barrels, but that’s only a guess).  As such I don’t often see this kit specifically discounted.  As of this posting, both all grain and extract versions of this kit are in stock.

Save 15%! For a short time, MoreBeer is taking 15% off nearly everything, site wide when you use coupon code BC15.  There are a few exceptions.  Shipping is also free to most US addresses with a qualifying $59 order.  15% Off at MoreBeer!  – remember promo code BC15.

A note on Consecration:  I’m not big on picking favorites.  I think there are far too many good things to pick favorites on most things.  Having said that, if I were going to write down a list of my favorite beers, Consecration would certainly be towards the top.  This is an amazing beer.

Hands on Review: Spike Brewing Equipment Spike+ Homebrew Kettle

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Spike+ Kettle + Mash Tun Conversion

Spike kettles come in sizes from 10 gallons all the way up to 50 gallons. The 10, 15, and 20 gallon kettles all share a common trait of 1.2 mm thick walls and a 5 mm thick base. The 30 and 50 gallon units up those numbers to 1.5 mm walls and a 6 mm base. Spike is quick to point out that these are the thickest kettle walls on the market. At first that might not seem like something that matters, it just seems like something that makes them heavy to lift and move around. But if you accidentally bang it into a doorway or a table you’re thankful for sturdy kettle walls that keep it looking new rather than beat up.
