    Grain Mills

    The 2A is a good mill, I have used one for the last 12 months and it works fine. I just got sick of running the grain through twice, once on a wide setting then once on a closer setting, with the 3 roller you just set and forget and run through once. Really only a pain when doing double batches...

    Grain Mills

    The hopper holds approx 5kg. The hopper plans that come with all the Crankandstein mills only hold about 1-2kg so I basically doubled the size. Wobbo

    Brew Stand

    Paid $295 and it included a Thrumometer and postage as well. I believe prices have gone up since and they are now selling them for about $365. Thats why I would be buying one direct from the States, they dont weigh that much - about 5 kg so postage wouldnt be prohibitive. Wobbo
