Grain Mill? Recommendations

5 posts in this topic

Guys and Gals, I'm in the need of a grain mill. My staple grain is corn, and I've tried the cheap crank burr mill, driven by drill, but it gave up the ghost. I also bought a barley / malt grinder but it will not crack the corn. So what do you use

?

Thanks for your advice.

I am having great luck with steam-rolled corn, and only need 180-degree mash water. No milling needed!

To mill small grains, I always recommend the Apollo Machine Works' Econo-Mill, made in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, which also claims to be perfect for corn.

Hammermill is the only thing that will handle corn in the volume you need.

A roller mill will work just fine for corn. Maker's Mark uses a roller mill, and I'm guessing the volume Mash is working with does not surpass their volume. We use a roskamp with 2 sets of rolls.
