A blender can probably do an adequate job. The only problem (that I
know of) is that "wheatberries" (that's what they call them) are hard
enough to scratch the inside of your glass blender jar. So you
probably want to have a dedicated wheat-crushing jar. Assuming that
you already have a blender, a new container should be $10 - $20. Or
you can haunt the flea markets and yard sales and easily pick up a
complete blender for $1 - $15. I don't know for sure that this method
will crush your wheat sufficiently -- I am not a beer brewer and don't
know what your requirements are. The price on the grain mill is
typical, by the way, your local supplier isn't trying to screw you.

You could also try an electric coffee grinder, although I would
imagine that the quantities you are interested in would probably make
that inefficient.
