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.

As of this posting, this great mill is on sale for $99.99 and includes free shipping .  To US addresses in the lower 48 US states.  Check AIH for up to the minute price and availability.

Stacks With: For a limited time AIH is discounting most orders of $49 or more by 13%.  That stacking sale makes this great mill just $86.99.
