Why Mill Your Own Grain?  Milling your own grain… 1.  Gives you control over the crush of your grain.  That’s a big factor in efficiency.  2.  A mill allows you to fine tune for your equipment and process.  You know what the crush is going to be since you set it.  3.  A mill allows you to save money by buying whole bags of grain at a discount, and 3.  The shelf life of unmilled grain is longer than pre-milled grain.  Freshly milled grain = better tasting beer.

  • This is selling for just $99.99.
  • Shipping is also free to addresses in the contiguous US
  • While you’re at it, grab a seasonal all grain kit to use with your fancy new mill.  These are currently on sale for 20% off and they also qualify for free shipping.

Introducing Monster Mill MM-3G – Geared Three Roller Mill!

 

Geared 3 Roller Homebrew Mill Kit

Geared 3 Roller Homebrew Mill Kit from Monster Brewing Hardware

More Info

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

The MM-3G Kit Consists of the MM-3G mill described below with the base, hopper, feeler gauge, and oil. All this under one part number with FREE UPS Ground SHIPPING! (excluding AK, and HI). This mill is NOT suitable for commercial applications including brew shops or commercial breweries. For commercial applications look at our Pro series mills.

Its finally here. We have added gears to the already successful MM-3 to create the new MM-3G. Basically a scaled down version of the already famous MM-3ProG. The drive shaft spins one top roller that drives the other top roller through a set of alloy steel gears. Grain from the top fixed gap is force fed to the adjustable gap between the main drive roller and the bottom third roller. Super reliable feeding is now a given for your hard core homebrew operation. The most advanced in our line of 3-Roller Home Brewing Monster Mills, The MM-3G is a further upgrade of our already successful MM-3. The MM-3G comes standard with two 1215 alloy steel gears driving two 1.5″ diameter 1144 alloy steel rollers, with a third idler roller providing a second crush through an adjustable gap, solid 303 stainless steel knobs, as well as the 1/2″ drive shaft with three flats for drill drive. The rollers are 6″ long just like all our home brewing mills. With all the great features of our already popular MM-3, but with gears for positive feeding. The MM-3G crushes all your grain twice, with one pass through the mill. It starts with a preliminary crush through the initial fixed gap of 0.070” between the top two rollers, and then ends with a pass through the adjustable second gap (0.028->0.055) between the drive shaft roller, and the bottom third roller. The initial pass slightly flattens the grain, and gets it ready for the next crush, that breaks apart the grains and loosens the starch with minimal husk damage.

The MM-3G consists of 6061 aluminum block frames with three 6″ long 1.5″ diameter 1144 alloy steel rollers riding on Oilite™ oil impregnated bronze bushings, while the third idler roller rides in bushings that are offset mounted in an adjustable knob. The stainless steel knob is held in a fixed position by thumbscrew that you can loosen to adjust the mill. This system provides an adjustment range of .070″. The knobs are turned from solid 303 stainless steel barstock for excellent durability. The skirt flange has a small cookie bite aligned with the eccentric offset that allows you to know how your offset adjustment is aligned. They have additional slots for a positive grip. For the rollers we use a superior grade of steel that is much harder (1144 alloy) than what is found on most comparable products. The drive shaft, and all the axles are integral to the roller rather than screwed into the ends. All the axles have minimal freeplay in the bushings for long lasting reliable life. This mill comes standard with the 1/2″ drive shaft. We recommend a name brand corded 1/2″ drill to turn this mill. Wimpy house special weak drills will release the smoke from the load. Suitable for the most discriminating serious hard core home brewer that wants the very best, the MM-3G is our flagship homebrewer model, the best of the best.

We highly recommend that you purchase our base and hopper. All current bases come standard with precision drilled alignment holes, dowel pins, and matching holes in all our Pro Frames, as well as the smaller MM-3 mill. To take advantage of this feature, you need to purchase our base and hopper along with your mill for precision frame alignment, and superior roller motion. You’ll also need a high quality corded drill to drive this beast. We recommend a 1/2″ drive name brand corded drill. Please note that the larger shaft will require the larger 1/2″ drive drill, as the more common 3/8″ chuck won’t accommodate the larger shaft. Our hand crank does NOT fit this mill as supplied, nor is it recommended for any of our Pro series mills.

This mill will NOT mill corn and doesn’t work well with rye by itself. It is designed for barley and wheat malt, and un-malted wheat. For corn see the 2Pro, or the 2ProPD.

Announcing: Kegland MaltZilla Motorized Malt Mill w/ Premium Diamond Rollers!

MaltZilla Motorized Malt Mill w/ Premium Diamond Rollers

MaltZilla Motorized Malt Mill w/ Premium Diamond Rollers via MoreBeer

More Info

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

Description
KegLand put an exceptional amount of time into the research, testing, and development of the MaltZilla, and what they came up with is a motorized grain mill unlike anything we’ve seen before. It features an integrated motor so you’ll never have to mess with a hand crank or power drill to spin the rollers. And the rollers themselves are made with a diamond-impregnated surface that offers superior performance and longevity compared to conventional knurled steel rollers.

The integrated 24V motor is powerful enough to chew through popping corn kernels with ease, and works on voltages from 12-30V DC. The higher the voltage the faster the rollers spin, although we recommend 24V for optimum speed and grist results. The unit does not come with a power supply. When purchasing the unit, you have the option of pairing it with either a power supply with 110V plug (CAN101), or with a 6 ft. long cord with Anderson plug and alligator clips (CAN102). The power supply is straight forward, and allows you to plug the unit into a standard 110V power socket. The alligator clips give you the option to power the unit from a battery.

Knurled Steel vs. Diamond Coated Rollers
Your run-of-the-mill grain mills are often manufactured with steel rollers with a knurled finish. The knurling helps grip and pull the grain through the rollers, but even the knurling on hardened steel will go blunt eventually and hinder the mill’s performance. Some manufacturers attempt to solve this problem by using geared rollers to better grab the grain, or add a third roller to the mill so the first two rollers with a larger gap force the grain into the third roller. These are only workarounds to the real issue—all steel rollers will go blunt eventually, especially if used with hard grains like wheat or corn. In a commercial setting, it’s not uncommon to send the rollers off to a metalworking factory to re-sharpen and re-knurl, but this is an expensive, time-consuming hassle. Many homebrew-scale users might just end up throwing the mill away and purchasing a new one.

The MaltZilla Diamond Mill is quite a different mill design, and it’s the first in the world to use diamonds impregnated into the surface of the roller. Even after many tons of grain are processed through the mill, the diamond surface will stay just as sharp as it was on day one. The sharpness of the diamonds draws grain exceptionally well, and even when hard grains are used the diamond rollers won’t dull or slip in performance.

Sheer Instead of Chop
Most mills require aggressive knurling to push into the grain and “chop” the grain as it passes through a tight gap, which means your grains are often chopped in half. The MaltZilla works on a different principle and gap setting is not as critical. The MaltZilla uses impregnated diamonds to grip the surface of the kernel and the friction of pulling the grain through the gap causes a sheering action. When set up correctly, the sheering action can leave the entire husk intact, reducing the chance of stuck sparge and improve efficiency, while still opening the husk enough that the entire contents of the kernel is available to the mashing process. The 70 mm diameter rollers are double the diameter of many other mills, which significantly improves the crush and assists in drawing the grain in more effectively.

Integrated Motor
You generally would not purchase a car without an engine, so why would you purchase a grain mill without a motor? Milling grain has an optimum RPM— too slow and it will take you a long time, too fast and you will end up with excessive powder. Hand cranking can be a pain in the backside, especially with larger grain bills, and using a power drill doesn’t offer much in the way of speed control and adds the potential risk of burning out your drill. The MaltZilla has an integrated motor with a very constant RPM putting out optimum RPM with an integrated gearbox. The high torque and sealed construction make it ideal for a brewing environment, as the motor is well protected from moisture and grain dust.

The motor is seamlessly integrated into the side body of the mill. Being DC, the motor is safer than higher voltage AC, especially in an environment where splashing and hose spray are commonplace. The DC motor is also reversible so the direction of spin can be changed based on the polarity. This is particularly useful for over-mount and under-mount installation.

Over-Mount and Under-Mount Installation
Traditionally, homebrew mills just sit on a board where they are moved from one bucket to another. The MaltZilla has multiple different mounting configurations. It can be over-mounted to a board like most mills are, but if you want a seamless finish to your garage/brewing area, you can mount the mill under your counter where it’s concealed and out of the way. Simply lift up a small opening in the top of your benchtop, drop in your hopper, pour in grain and run the mill. When you’re done, remove the hopper and conceal the opening.

There is also a MaltZilla PPE Base Board available (coming soon!) for over the bucket installation or designing your own mill stand.

Grain Hopper
This unit does not come with a grain hopper. We recommend using a large funnel with a shortened spout, or a repurposed gallon-sized water bottle.

Specifications:

  • Power: 12-30V DC
  • Anderson Connector Plug
  • Grain Inlet ID: 2-3/16″
  • Grain Inlet OD: 2-3/8″
  • Weight: 11 lbs

 

This looks pretty amazing and at a great price.  A couple things to note.  It does not come with a grain hopper and you need to purchase a power supply separately.  If you’re a Cannular owner – review – that power supply will work.

  • 1.This listing for DY368 grain mill is motorized with a drill. You don’t need any additional attachments, just stick the drill on and go. The DY368 grain mill is a sturdy mill with an aluminum hopper that can hold up to 4L of grains at one time, and it’s easy to build your own hopper extension if you need to fit more than this in the hopper. It features an alloy block frame that houses two rollers on stainless steel real ball bearing instead of oil-impregnated bronze bushings.
  • 2.The drive shaft and all axles are integral to the roller, which makes it possible to drive the mill clockwise or counter-clockwise. Stainless knurled knobs allow a gap spacing adjustment range of 2.5mm. Adjusting is simple – just loosen the adjustment screws, adjust the gap and tighten the adjustment screws.
  • 3.As a consistent, precise crush is also vital for making the best beer possible, the roller is the most important part in the consistent crush. The DY368 roller is using food grade stainless steel, which has molybdenum added to its alloy content during production. Molybdenum provides an very high degree of corrosion resistance.
  • 4. Stainless steel excels in resistance to acids, bromides, and iodides at high temperature. It is durable, easy-to-fabricate, clean, weld and finish. We are using real bearing for the roller instead of brass bushings. Real ball bearings not only make the lifetime of the mill longer also make the whole grinding process more efficient.
  • 5. This high quality, precision-machined DY368 mill is easy to set up and use. Just using a 60w gear motor at 75 RPM gives you a crush rate of 20kg(44 pounds) per hour making the big grain bills fast and easy.The DY368 grain mill is perfect for large batches and high efficiency milling.

Do you want to motorize your KegLand MaltMuncher Mill? This high torque geared grain mill motor fits the 12mm shaft on our item B06 Three Roller Mill (and any other 2 or three roller mill with a 12mm drive shaft and 1½” diameter rollers), and features internal gears to spin your mill at 200 rpm. A heavy duty spider coupling absorbs the direct drive shock, and the 1 amp motor has plenty of power to turn. This kit also includes a 10mm shaft adapter, in case you have a Maltmuncher Two Roller Mill.

NOTE: This is for mills with 1½” diameter rollers only, it will not drive larger mills with 2″ diameter rollers. This will not work with the Monster Mill MM3

A safety switch is included for mounting on your mill mount. This includes a button that is harder to turn on than turn off (to turn on, twist the red knob and press down, to turn off, just press the red knob).

This kit requires wiring and installation, besides a MaltMuncher Mill, you will need to wire this mill to your 110 volt power source (a plug is not included). You will also need to build a table mount for this mill, and elevate the motor ½” so it will line up with the drive shaft on the Mill.

See the thumbnails for mounting and wiring ideas.. When wiring, besides the hot red and black neutral wires coming out of the safety switch that you wire to your house 110 volt hot and neutral lines, you will also need to wire a green ground wire from a mount on the motor to your three prong plug.

For barley malt only, this mill does not crush corn.
