Default Critique our crush with our new monster mill!

Hey all...first crush on our new monster mill 2. Gap set to .045 with feeler gauges. It's mostly white wheat malt with a little vienna.

Thanks!

If the pics aren't good enough to analyze let me know and I'll take more.

I see a few husks in there that are a *little* more intact than they should be, try taking it down to .40.

I would take it down to .40 and look into conditioning your grain with water before milling. It makes a huge difference for me, I can mill super fine and the husks don't get shredded so I never have laudering issues.

Keep tightening until there are very few if any whole grains in the mix.

I'm still trying to find the sweet spot with my MM 2 2.0. I've been doing .035 for the last couple of batches, but it might be a little too fine - got a little stuck right at the end of my mash out last batch. .037 might be the ticket...
