First mill: Champion mill attachement, or GrainMaker?
I’m wanting to buy my a mill. I’ve done a bunch of reading, but I could use some help. I tend to make lots of different types of bread. But prefer heartier ones.
Right now I have it down to three:
- Champion juicer mill attachement
- GrainMaker 99
- Retsel Mil-Rite
While the Retsel is nice, I think if I’m going to spend that much, I’d like the ability for cracked gains, corn, etc..
Right now, I have a Champion Juicer, and thought about getting the grain attachment. But I have some reservations, they say it can have problems (get hot) with spelt and kamut. I’m guessing if I could run it twice (cracked first) and maybe bypass the issue, in addition to keeping the flour cooler.
I’ve always been the sort of person who prefers quality costs and something that will do the job right the first time. Otherwise I ended up being the better item later and spend more money.
So I’m wondering if I’d be better off with the GrainMaker 99? While I’m not super excited about doing it all by hand - I’m not opposed to it - as I know I can always motorize later.
Some I’m wondering…
How good would the Champion be? Or should pony up and get the GrainMaker? Money wise, I could afford too, but also budget conscious. It would be my Christmas present with the Thanksgiving sales - so I need to decide by Monday.
Wondering which I should get… and how much is enough. Defiantly could use some friendly input. I’ve over thought it ad am going in circles.
