Default Corona Mill Users -Evaluate my 1st Crush

Finished my Bucket Crushing Station with Corona Mill.

Ran 1/3 lb of 2-row. Thoughts?

looks fine ! Test your efficiency.. crush 3 lbs and make a 1 gallon batch
It takes a min to get a corona dialed in but youre looking close !

Crush it more says I!!!

I like to push my grind to the limit in the name of high efficiency (89%) but to each their own -- that crush looks good!

Why are only corona users allowed to comment on the crush? :0

It looks fine to me, but I don't use a corona, so take that for what it's worth.

I agree with everyone else. It isn't bad, but you can crush more.

Depends on your mash tun tho. I have been stepping up the crush each time. I have a braid but it's reinforced with notched tubing. It refuses to stick so I keep turning. I was getting 78% eff right off the bat. Last batch not sure because I screwed up my preboil reading somehow but I ended up with SG 1.05 on a predicted 1.04. Problem is at that point it's probably not going to taste the way it's supposed to. Would have been better to leave my crush alone. Consistency is more important than achieving 100.

I'd go a bit tighter if you're using BIAB, if you're using an actual mash tun then give this a shot and see where it gets you.
