Yes, the KitchenAid grain mill works just fine for crushing grains.
It is easily adjustable, from grinding fine enough to make a powder
to coarse enough to let whole grains pass through unscathed. I've
been using it for several years for my grains, without a problem.
And since you can dump a cup or two of grain into the hopper at a time,
you can monitor the grind and adjust it as needed while still grinding
away. For instance, I usually have to grind a little finer for black
patent than pale malt, since the grains tend to be a bit smaller.

No complaints from me. Like most everything KitchenAid makes, it's
rugged as hell. (Their plastic attachments tend to be a bit wimpier
and sometimes crack after many long years of use.)

Bumpin' and grindin',
Doug
