Default Check my crush!

Is this a crap crush or am I just crazy?

It is not my crush, I bought it crushed from a retailer's store and had my brother drive it back 9 hours to me.

Looks like mostly un-crushed grain.

If you did it tighten things up and run it through again. If it is store bought - complain!

It looks like someone stepped on a pile of malt, accidentally crushing a few pieces.


This is what mine looks like right out of the mill. 0.032" mill gap.

That's what I am used to seeing from my normal orders (above photo). Thought the bulk bags would be crushed since I requested it.

You sure they crushed that for you or was it just handled roughly during shipping. I think a rolling pin would do a better job.

Yeah. But they stepped, up admitted their mistake and shipped my mill via nex day air I purchased to make sure it was here in time.
