After careful consideration of options and extensively and unsuccessfully  investigating alternatives, it is with regret that we advise that the Menace Mill will be discontinued.

  • Countless and substantial sheet metal steel prices have been passed down from the local mills in recent months.
  • Alternative suppliers for the specialized manufactured mill parts have had to be sourced, and these prices have come in at multiples of the original costs.
  • Given the above two considerations, further manufacture cannot be realized at viable prices.
  • We will however continue to offer the remaining stock of mills and add-on accessories until stocks run out.  We may however assemble the mills into comprehensive sets instead of being available in a modular fashion, if this proves to be more practical.
  • This is not final, and we will continue to assess the supply conditions and  market and/or find new suppliers, and we will kick things off again.
  • Note that the above applies specifically to the Menace Mill only.  Made to order products (such as the Rhombix Fire System) and ‘simpler’ components (such as the Bottle Carriers), will continue to be available until further notice. However, notable price increases are inevitable.
  • Commercial and specialized custom developments will continue to be done, but assessed on a case by case basis for feasibility.

We would like to thank you all for your support over the years, and hopefully some time in the future circumstances will allow for things to kick off again.
It has been a privilege getting to know many home-brewers, commercial brewers, volunteer guinea pigs, and industry experts over the years in this quest for developing a truly South African, affordable malt mill.
And, most importantly, its been fun which is what its all about!
