    Guess I'm milling it myself.(I'll power it with a Milwaukee M18 drill on low speed).

    Looks dangerous. To fingers and barley that is.

    Milwaukee makes good products, I bought this after my battery died, it was the same price as a new 18V battery

    All I can say is beware of mice, I kept about 300 pounds of grain in my garage regularly until they arrived, now I don't lol

    Going to pick up a HD plastic bin tomorrow. Will keep it in there with a silica pack. The rest of it goes either in the freezer or a plastic bucket with a tight lid.

    Going to use the Red Active for 27.8% of the grain bill for my next batch of "Dirty Bohemian" this weekend. I'll know more about the color after I brew with it.

    I keep a couple hundred pounds in rubbermaid totes in my garage. And I use a Canadian Tire concrete mixing drill to power my corona mill. I want one of those shiny mills but my little Corona just keeps chugging along.

    I picked up the same mill, but at Austin Homebrew Supply they brand it the Cereal Killer lol. I used the hand crank just to see how much effort it actually took and I chowed through 12 lbs of grain easily in a matter of minutes. I may very well continue doing it by hand. Kinda therapeutic!
