Can anyone give me the dimensions and weight of the Valley mill and of a Barley Crusher/JSP Malt mill out of the box (ie. bare minimum size). I have a mate in the states at the moment and the possibility is there that he may be able to bring one back for me. However, I'd like to know the dimentions of the above mills (and anything similar) too see whether it is going to be practical to fit in a luggage bag or not. The other option is a crank and stein mill, being smaller and just the bare essentials but for the price you can get a ready made mill with no need to fabricate different bits and pieces.

Thoughts and comments please. :unsure:


Thanks

Justin

I think I still have the box mine came in.
It is about the size of three wine bottles side by side (both length and width).

I'll measure it up tonight and post back. If you are lucky I may just even take a picure of it.

Beers,
Doc

Fantastic effort. Thanks heaps. You couldn't give me an idea of depth could you (approx. cm would be fine)? I assume the hopper is going to be square, but perhaps it is more rectangular? This looks promising :D

Thanks heaps

I really appreciate that. It was hard to work out exactly how big it was from all the photo's on the web. It is actually a lot smaller than I thought, this is good news. I was initially thinkinig I would have to get a crank and stein because it is a lot smaller, fits in a box 23cmX10cmX10cm. Now I may try to convince him that a barley crusher will fit in his baggage ;)

Bribe with beer. ;)

Any word on the Valley? Hey Batz, you have one don't you? Has it arrived yet?

Here is a pic of my Valley Mill.
Unfortunately I don't have the box anymore.
The top hopper and knob on the side come off.

So the size if the unit for shipping is 376mm h x 85 mm d x 230mm w.

In the box it would be just a little bit bigger.

Beers,
Doc
