2 of 5 Worked well for two years... September 6, 2018
Reviewer: Nate from Victoria, BC Canada  
This thing was really great for about two years. Then I began having intermittent problems with jamming and grain feeding. The metal next to the bushings (roller side) has worn away to leave a gap between the roller and the block. It's barely usable now. I ran maybe 10 bags through it and never exceeded the slowest setting on my drill. I also kept the bushings lubricated. I expected far more longevity from this unit.

5 of 5 Can't go wrong April 25, 2018
Reviewer: Chris Watt from Victoria BC  
A little beast of a mill.  After seeing these being used in multiple home-brew shops I knew getting one would be the right purchase and so far so great!

3 of 5 Shaft slips inside roller November 23, 2015
Reviewer: KM from Victoria, BC  
Try cracking a hard grain (rye or roasted malts) and you might find the shaft slipping inside the roller.  Turns out they just jam the shaft inside the roller but it easily slips when stressed.  Had to dismantle it and JB Weld the shaft inside the roller.  You'll know what I mean as soon as it happens to you.  Nice mill otherwise.

5 of 5 very happy! September 25, 2015
Reviewer: graham orser from Kitchener, ON Canada  
This really is an excellent mill. Hooked up with my drill and it blasts through grain in no time. So far I have not even needed to clean (other cheaper mills I was cleaning after each/during use). Received approx 7% increase in efficiency by just switching mill no other process changes.

5 of 5 Excellent mill for the price September 19, 2015
Reviewer: Trevor Whyte from Westville, NS Canada  
I upgraded from the old iHomebrewing entry level mill that had difficulty pulling grain through (but still worked well with multiple crushes). Pulled this out of the box, Google searched how to adjust the gap (no instructions included for that, but super simple), set the gap with a credit card and it ripped through 12 pounds of grain in ~2 minutes.I'm very pleased but wish I'd sprung for the larger hopper.

5 of 5 Should have bought this sooner! May 28, 2015
Reviewer: Daniel Bronson from Calgary, AB Canada  
After using this, my mash efficiency jumped over 10% to a very consistent 78% for average strength beers. I've even done a few around 1.100 OG and gotten 70% mash efficiency each time. My LHBS's crush is crappy and changes often, now it's consistent and high. Very glad I got this.

5 of 5 Beer lovers LOVE OBK!!! December 3, 2014
Reviewer: Moritz K Sanio from Guelph, ON Canada  
All the reviews seem excellent and I'm getting fully converted to All Grain brewing.
Did I miss the 15% sale recently over the weekend. I was glued to the sale and did get loads of fantastic hop sales(thanks for bringing the pounds back)but wasn't fast enough to catch the 7 lb. Barley Crusher. Is it going on sale soon and please notify me of any upcoming sales.
I love OBK it's the best thing for homebrewers in CANADA! Keep up the great work, your fan base is growing because you have beer lovers that spread the word to our beer loving fans.
