Just bought my annual bulk bags of malt grains (55Lbs). This will be the first time I will mill Rye malt. I have heard that Rye requires a tighter gap set than barley malt. Does anyone have a list of recommended gap sets for milling different grains?

Thanks for the help.

I leave my mill set at one gap all the time. For both wheat and rye malt, I run it through once by itself, then add it to the the rest of the grains and run it all through. I've had no efficiency problems doing it that way, and I'm not fiddling with my mills gap.
