Default Rate My Crush

My BIL gave me 2 commercial coffee mills.
One pretty much pulverized the grain even adjusted all the way out.
These are pictures of what the other one did.
Will this work for all grain?
Sorry about crappy phone pics.

Thanks

That looks pretty coarse... IMHO.

Well, that is even better. That is the coarsest setting. Right now it pretty much shells the chaff, and break kernel in two.

Break the kernel up more, keep the husks intact, like this:

OK, thanks POL. Will do some adjusting tonight, and be back with pics.
How much fines are acceptable?

There is no way I can answer that. Some systems are more prone to stuck mashes. The photo above is of conditioned malt, which will keep the husks MUCH more intact. You can crush pretty fine if you condition your malt.

If you can manage to keep the husks in tact, then you could grind the rest to powder, but you would never be able to run-off if you did that. Like the Pol said, that part really depends on your system.
