How long did this take you? I'm worried I won't be able to brew for like 3 months.How long have you had your mill that you needed to replace the roller? I've had my barley crusher for 6 or 7 years now and it's acting up...not feeding grain through like it should. I've turned the non-driveside roller over, added an o-ring to keep the rollers moving, but it sometimes doesn't want to grab the grain to pull it through. Very annoying, it takes 10 minutes to mill 11 pounds of grain with a drill. Ugh. Wondering if I should get a new mill or try to replace the roller.
And also, what was wrong with your original base?
Doesn't the barley crusher have a lifetime warranty? Have you emailed them with your problem?
I had the same problem with my BC. Contact the manufacturer. He had me send it to him and he rebuilt. No charge and as good as new.
I may upgrade to a Monster Mill anyway. But I should get this fixed so I have a backup or sell it to someone who needs a mill.
I think it took about 2 1/2 weeks. 3 or so days shipping each way and week or so in line at the shop.
