Milling the barley is a crucial step in making beer. While milling the barley can be done by using mortar and pestle, the process can be painstaking especially if you are making large batches of brew. This is the reason why a home brewer mill is necessary.
A malt mill breaks the barley to allow the mashing liquor to seep into the center of the barley to transform starch into sugar. Since the husk still remains intact, they are used to form a filter bed necessary for the process of sparging or lautering.
The barley crusher malt milt is made from aluminum. It also comes with a 15-pound capacity hopper. The dual steel rollers have a 12 TPI knurl for effective milling. The roller gap has an adjustment range off 0.15 to 0.70 inch with a turn of the knob.
To power the mill, a 3/8" drill motor can be used to provide up to 500 RPM. This allows faster milling to create large batches of beer. It has the capacity to feed 6 pounds of barley per minute. It also comes with a solid wood base that can be centered on a 5-gallon bucket.
Precision machining with Quality Control assures the homebrewer that this will be the only grain mill they will ever purchase!
