The mill breaks down the malted barley into tiny pieces so that the mashing liquid can easily seep into the middle of the barley. This process is necessary because it allows the starch within the endosperm of the barley to ferment and create the beer flavour as well as its alcohol content.

While home brewers can opt to grind the malted barley with a kitchen mortar and pestle, the process is very time consuming as you need to pound large batches of barley to create a substantial amount of beer. Thus, home brewers rely on a machined mill such as the Malt Muncher Three Roller Malt Mill.

This mill is built to last and is sure to hold it's own over a lifetime of use. The three rollers are made out of cold rolled steel, whereas the body is constructed out of 6061 Aluminum with hardened steel bearings.

Three roller mills draw grains in better and provide improved throughput making them better and more efficient than traditional two roller mills.

The miller also features knurled rollers that can be adjusted on each end to produce evenly crushed malted barley. This allows home brewers to pull the barley to the rollers without destroying the hull. An intact hull is crucial for sparging.

It comes with a removable hand crank which can be replaced with a 1/2" drill rotor.

Please Note: The standard Malt Muncher Three Roller Malt Mill does NOT come with a hopper.

Want to add a Hopper?: Malt Muncher Three Roller Malt Mill Hopper has a capacity of 12 lbs. It is designed to direct grist down towards the mill gap making milling far faster and easier. (Some assembly required)

5 of 5 Works Great! ...with proper setup! August 1, 2019
Reviewer: Chris Legault from Blainville, QC Canada  
This mill works great, but care must be used during assembly/setup.  First, you have to make sure the rollers still spin freely once the mill is bolted to your board and that all screws have been placed.  This required some fiddling around on my part, as the rollers would bind when I would tighten everything.  Secondly, you have to make sure you are adjusting the gap towards the proper (powered) roller... i.e. with adjustment knobs at 12 o'clock, if you rotate to one side the roller moves up and  forward towards the powered roller and in the opposite direction it moves up towards the free spinning roller.  So to get it to go towards the powered roller you must turn clockwise from 12 o'clock on the side with the drive shaft and counterclockwise on the opposite side.
There's a video that shows all this on youtube:

5 of 5 Perfect Mill = Perfect Crush August 1, 2019
Reviewer: Lance Belanger from North Bay, ON Canada  
I've milled grain for many 10 gallon batches since buying this and this mill is seriously impressive. When I first received the mill one of the holes to attach the hopper wasn't threaded so I reached out to OBK and they quickly shipped replacement frame plates, which included another set of bearings so I'm all set for years to come now. I find the hopper a little small for 10 gallon batches but it seems to hold around 14lbs of grain so if you're doing 5 gallon batches this mill and hopper will work perfect. The gap setting is easy to adjust, took me maybe 1/2 lb of grain to get it setup right. Because of this mill I now get the perfect crush of my grain and was able to increase my efficiency almost 5 per cent as a result. I didn't even try and mill my grain by hand with the handle, I picked up a cheap drill that has a variable speed trigger and this chews through 22lbs of grain in less than 3 minutes.

1 of 5 Hot garbage March 19, 2019
Reviewer: Marie-Annick Scott from Edmonton, AB Canada  
Beware the rave reviews. The issue with this mill for serious brewers is that only the bottom roller is adjustable. Want a finer crush? Too bad. Unless it's only slightly finer than the non-adjustable top two rollers, the crush point for the third roller is between itself and the non powered roller. That means that the mill will frequently jam because there's no force powering the second roller. And the powered roller will spin uselessly. It's why pro breweries stopped using 5 roller mills years ago.  My advice is to buy a 2 roller mill, condition your grain and double crush.

5 of 5 A real champion April 11, 2018
Reviewer: Adam Dubeau from Seven Persons, AB Canada  
Only had a couple issues with this when I bought it. One of the locknuts for the hopper wasn't made right, as it had no threads, so I'm missing a hopper nut, but it doesn't affect the operation. The other issue was having to track down some mounting bolts and fabricate a mounting plate, but I was able to sort that out over a weekend.

I opted to add an electric motor to spin the mill, and after a quick trip to Princess Auto I was able to find a drive pulley, a hub, and a 9" pulley to reduce the mill speed to the recommended 200 RPM. I set the mill to the middle setting at .032" and it tore thru a grain bill like a fat kid opening a Mars Bar. The grist looks really good, everything is cracked open, and very little flour. Looking forward to using this a lot more.

5 of 5 Amazing Mill March 18, 2018
Reviewer: Marc-Andre from Saint-Eustache  
This mill is impressive, makes a perfect crush in no time. To make the most of it, get a powerful drill that can handle crushing at the recommended 200 RPM, this will make sure the husks are intact and reduce the amount of flour without having to condition the grains. If you're thinking about buying a mill, don't think twice, totally worth every penny!
