Grain Mill

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to purchase a new/used grain mill for my distillery in CT. I'm running 30bbl mashes and am looking for a mill that'll do 15-25 lbs/min.

Thanks in advance

John,

We bought a mill from a dairy operation out of VA. I love it and recommend it to everyone. It's a 20 HP mill with two augers. It's a beast. I think we paid close to $7500 for everything, including auger and auger motors, mill and mill motor, electrical, etc. That price is old - we made the purchase about 4 years ago.

I work with Don Weaver.

You might be able to find something dairy related much closer to you.

Contact Robert Huebner at sales@coloradomillequipment.com I have used them in my last two distilleries and will continue to use them in the future. Great selection and service. You will be happy.

Uh oh, just received the 4hp mill from Pelletmasters, is that the one you are having problems with?

I believe so. Your experience may vary but the design/build were pretty bad, it overheated a lot, and is incredibly dusty even with the cyclone.

for what its worth, we use a colorado mill equipment hammer mill and love it. our only issue has been the single tab to hold the screens in place isn't sufficient. it took 5 minutes to weld a second tab on. We run a 7.5HP motor and mill at ~25lbs/min

Glowe8, you get 25#/min with corn on a 7.5hp motor?
