I'll definitely bring this up. My LHBS is a great store, and I've read about places deliberately using a poor crush so people buy more grain but I have confidence these guys are just honestly using the same crappy mill they've always had.

They've talked about having some guy build them an automated mill but they haven't gone through with it yet. Maybe I'll offer to build it for a shop discount :-)
