    Greetings all,

    I need a grain mill, and was wondering if anyone could suggest a good quality table clamp mill.
    I see there are many available for less than $40-50 but since it is hard to inspect quality on the internet. :)))
    hoping that maybe i could get feedback here from real users on what has worked for experienced brewers.

    Thanks in advance for feedback. Happy brewing

    I have one of the Corona/Victoria mills and it works well enough for me.

    What are you seeing for $40 -50?
    This is the one that's the standard. https://www.homebrewing.org/Cereal-...MI47jb69bJ2AIVw7jACh0ncQYeEAYYAyABEgIoU_D_BwE
    You may be able to find a version of it for $70 or so somewhere on Ebay. They'll all be pretty similar in this style and price range, but the Cereal Killer is a proven performer. Run it with an electric drill and you can mill up 8-10 lbs in just a few minutes.

    Imo, either would fit your needs. There are plenty of brewers out there that use the same thing. Search around for tips on using a Corona mill. Homebrewtalk will probably have all the info on such a mill that you would ever need.

    This is how I set up my corona mill to use with a drill, I took the bottom half of the white bucket and made a cover for it.

    If you have the tools and are a handy kind of person........I made mine out of a pasta maker hooked up to my cordless drill, it works great. If you want picture and info on doing it let me know.
