For those of you that buy/have bought grain from AHS crushed, what efficiencies have you been getting? Nothing against AHS, I just want to compare.

I got about 79% on my first all-grain from AHS. I bought a barley crusher since then so that was my only crushed all-grain kit from them, but I was pleased, and almost didn't buy the BC because I thought the crush was so good.

I was averaging in the mid to upper 70's. With the BC I now get 80's never had a problem with AHS's crushed grains
