Managing multiple types of whole peppercorns at home - how do you do it?

do you have a grinder for each type of peppercorn? or keep the corns in containers then crack in a morter/pestle? i've clearly got a bit of a peppercorn problem as i'm getting close to not being able to afford a grinder for each type?! i can't be the only one with this issue though, can i?

  1. I have more than one mill, but only because I was in search of perfection. I also have a mortar and pestle. I have one mill filled with black pepper, one with a multi color mix and I don't even know what's in my other one. If I'd gotten my current favorite mill first, it'd be the only one I have.

    You know, you can get therapy for that. ;-)
