This Homebrew Finds special offer MM-2ProSS consists of the MM-2Pro mill with stainless steel rollers described below for a low special price.
We recommend our HEAT TREATED steel for all COMMERCIAL applications. We DO NOT recommend our 303 stainless steel rollers for ANY commercial application. Heat treated rollers last 10X as long as stainless, or our regular steel.
Introducing the largest in our line of 2-roller Monster Mills, the MM2-Pro. This is an awesome upgrade to our already successful MM-2 mill, meant to compete and win against the best milling products available. The Pro model upgrades the rollers to 2" diameter 303 alloy stainless steel, adds the billet aluminum knobs, as well as the 1/2" drive shaft as standard. It consists of 6061 aluminum block frames with two 6" long, and 2" diameter steel rollers riding on SAE 841 oil impregnated bronze bushings. The drive shaft, and all the axles are integral to the roller rather than screwed into the ends. This makes it possible to reconfigure the mill to drive it counter-clockwise. All the axles are 3/8", with minimal freeplay in the bushings, and the larger 1/2" shaft comes standard. The larger 2" diameter rollers allow a finer crush with more minimal husk damage, and milling at smaller gap settings without worry of skipping. The 303 stainless steel makes this mill great for milling conditioned grains since it won't rust. This mill also comes with a much larger gap adjustment range of .200", more than double our standard range that should allow you to mill other grains like corn, as well as the conventional grist bills with barley. You will need some POWER to turn this mill. Suitable for a small micro, and great for the home brewer that wants the best.
One of the knurled steel rollers is driven by a standard 1/2" electric drill (not included) to feed the grain through the adjustable gap and crush the grist. Make sure you have a very robust 1/2" drive corded drill to drive this mill, we can't be responsible for drill death! : ) Don't even ask about a hand crank for this mill! Both ends of the non-driven roller ride in bushings that are offset mounted in an adjustable knob. The billet knob is held in a fixed position by a black oxide bolt you can loosen to adjust the mill. This system provides an adjustment range of .200". Our new design knobs are milled from solid 6061 aluminum barstock for excellent durability. The flange has two semi-circular slots that allow you to attach the knob positively to the face of the aluminum frame. They have 12 sides for a positive grip. You need to fabricate a base and hopper to feed the grist through the mill. The mill can be mounted above or below the base and attached using the included mounting bolts.
This special offer mill comes standard with 303 alloy stainless steel rollers which offers fantastic wear for home brewers. Stainless steel is great if you want to condition your grain prior to miliing since you won't have to worry about rust. We still recommend our HEAT TREATED steel for all COMMERCIAL applications. We DO NOT recommend these 303 stainless steel rollers for commercial applications. Our 303 Stainless Steel will wear just about the same as our non heat treated 1144 steel, but will not rust. This mill WILL mill corn, and works just fine with rye by itself. It is also designed for barley and wheat malt, and un-malted wheat.
