I’ll complete this page as time allows or if I get
a request to do so. I realize most brewers don’t
have access to the equipment needed to construct
their own grain mill. I have complete plans and step
Ok if you don’t have a mill and a lathe but still want a
mega mill I’m thinking of making some kits. If your interested
let me know… They will have aluminum sides and 4” rollers.
This is the construction of my Mega Grain Mill.
The focus is on good crush and ease of use. I could
have copied a hobby sized mill but why? I wanted a
crush like a commerical mill so I researched commerical
mills and based this design on that research.

a mega drill to run the mill if you use
a drill. A 500 to 750 RPM ½” drill
Scott says” This is my mini version of John's "johnplctech"
Mega Mill. Basically the same except only 3" wide rollers.
I tried it out yesterday and it ripped through 22 lbs of grain
in a blink of an eye.” Scott uses a 7.8amp Craftsman
drill to run his mill. Scott says this about the drill “I think
it's 800rpm. I was only running it at about 200-300
when I milled the grain.”
