KitchenAid Grain Mill Attachment Review

In theory, it should be very easy to make beer at home. It requires only a handful of ingredients that are very easy to find all over the world. After all, people have been making beer for millennia, so how hard can it be. Say this to any beer brewing aficionado, including me, and they will laugh.

Making beer is a complex process with multiple variables. Even the slightest variation in quality or procedure can spell the difference between a robust beer and an awful one. For years I have been working on the process and ingredients in order to be able to create great beer. Through my journey, I have come to realise the importance of using the right ingredients. From using the right type of grains with the right crushed size to using hops sourced from the right farm, everything can and will affect the end result.

One of the areas I have been focusing on lately is the grain I use. After using several pre-crushed grain mixes in my early days, another brewer was kind enough to tell me to crush my own grains, and I haven’t looked back since. When I crush my own grain, I get to pick and choose exactly which grains and in what proportion in order to achieve the right balance. A good grain mill should be heavy duty and should have a decent capacity.

There are many grain mills marketed towards brewers, but I recently heard of people using the grain mill attachment in their KitchenAid stand to do this job. If the KitchenAid grain mill works well, then a kitchen appliance that most homes have will suddenly make crushing grains for brewing beer accessible to many people.

My Experience


Why the attachment is Worth Your Money ?

Simply put, the grain mill attachment for the KitchenAid stand is worth it mainly for milling small amounts of grain. It is all metal and is hence really sturdy. The adjustable knob is very handy to control the coarseness of the grind. The wide hopper that holds the grain is very convenient. It is incredibly easy to assemble and use.
