I can get a Barley Crusher setup for about $150 or a 3-roller Monster Mill setup for about $220... is the extra $70 bucks worth it in anyoneís opinion?

(note that Iíll be asking for it for Christmas and could get either price point, it just might be nice to get $70 of other stuff)

if you are happy with the crush that you have been getting from the homebrew store, then go with the Barley Crusher, a single crush is perfectly adequate.

JSP Malt Mill, not adjustable, and I could not be happier with it.

Just curious, what do you do for non barley grains and malts? I canít imagine brewing without an adjustable mill, or I suppose I can, it means I wouldnít be grinding things that werenít barely.

It does just fine with wheat and rye. I usually mix the wheat and/or rye with a few pounds of base malt and run it through. I then add that to the main grist and run that through. Never had sparge issues and my effencieny is 75 - 80% regularly.
