Our most popular grain mill! A high quality, precision-machined mill that is easy to set up and use. A consistent, precise crush is vital for making the best beer possible, and The Barley Crusher delivers. This mill comes with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer and some of the best features on the market:
  • Solid base fits easily on a standard 6.5 gallon fermenting bucket.
  • Adjustable rollers with a .015 to .070 range.
  • Materials that will last a lifetime: 1018 Cold Rolled Steel for the rollers, 6061 Aluminum for the mill body and hopper, tool steel for the axles with oil-impregnated bronze bushings.
  • 5-inch rollers have a 12 TPI knurl that pulls grain through while leaving the hull intact to form an excellent filter bed for sparging.
  • Large hopper holds approximately 7 pounds of grain.
  • Includes a hand-crank but no adapters are needed to use a 3/8 drill motor; using a 3/8 drill motor at 500 RPM gives a throughput of 6 pounds a minute.

    Not inexpensive, but it works nicely
    I have been either buying my grains crushed or borrowing a grinder for the past 6-years. Finally broke down and "invested" in this one. When it arrived, I checked it for gap setting and it was perfectly set at .039 and it has a hash mark on each side of the rollers for a reference point. I used it with both the provided handle (which is difficult to install and remove) and with a power drill. Both worked well. I like being able to adjust the roller gap for different grains and waiting until brew day to grind them, freshly. Overall, not a sexy grinder, but performs very well.

    Barley crusher gives you more control.
    First barley crusher I have purchased. I have only used it for crushing specialty grains for steeping. The crush is easily adjusted with a screw driver and feeler gauge (both purchased separately). I have only used the handle to crank the mill and it has never gotten stuck. Very happy with the mill so far.

    Barley crusher
    Works great. This is my first grain crusher so I have nothing to compare it to. I crushed over 60 lbs of grains so far with no issues. Works fast with a drill. Handle it comes with takes to long.

    Crushing the competition
    Well, it would be dishonest of me to go that far, since I'm not familiar with the competition; but I can assure you that once you have this barley crusher, you will be happy. It works fast and efficient.

    Gets the job done!
    This si the second Barley Crusher I've purchased, The first one was purchased in 2007. The knurled rollers were worn to the point that they no longer grabbed the grain and fed it through. This is a great value crusher and is well built so without hesitation I purchased the same model and I know I'll get many years of good use out of it.

    Great buy.
    Does a great job and worth the cost. I can now have fresh milled grain for brew day. This thing chews through the grain and provides an excellent crush. If you have a drill, use it and save your arm!

    Difficult to adjust setting
    The mill comes with the roll gap setting ready to use out of the box. My brewing buddy and I decided to adjust the gap a little closer to get a finer grind, and found out this was difficult to do. The knurled adjusting knobs don't move in tracks, and they slip when you turn them. We tried using a feeler gauge and adjusting one side at a time, but this didn't work well. The best way to adjust the roll gap is to insert a thin piece of cardboard across the entire gap of the rollers. We used cardboard from the back of a pad of paper. Then use the adjusting knobs to move the roller up to the cardboard so the adjusting roll is even all the way across, and then tighten the set screws. Run some grain through and see if you get the desired level of grind. You probably will need to loosen the rolls and add several sheets of paper (one or two at a time) to the initial piece of cardboard to get to the desired grind level. My advice is don't mess with the setting in the first place. Other than this gap adjustment issue, we are very pleased with the mill and end would recommend it.

    What is the generally recommended gap setting on this? Is there a common item that can be used to gauge it?
    A shopper on Nov 9, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I have always used the crusher in its factory set, default gap setting. I too thought I'd need to play with it, but the factory set gap has always been fine for me. If you do want to adjust or measure the gap you simply just need to get a set of 'feeler' or 'gapper' gauges commonly used for setting spark plug gaps. You can get a set of those feelers at any auto parts store. Just be sure they cover the 0.015-0.07 range that the mill works within.
    What is the unit of measure for the listed range of roller adjustment (.015-.070)? Inches, cm, mm?
    A shopper on Oct 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The listed range is in inches.
    How do you clean the rollers?
    C A on Aug 4, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It is best to clean the rollers with a wire brush. You do not want to use any water as this will promote rusting.
