Good for him? Geez, the attitudes around here lately.
@hope2perc - It solely depends on your mill setting. If you get a coarse setting when milling barley then yes, you will want a tighter setting for wheat or rye. If you get a good fine crush with barley then there is no need to set the mill gap.
I have a Barley Crusher mill and left it at the factory setting which is 0.39. I crush my barley, wheat, etc through it and get a great crush every batch. I'm also getting 79% consistent efficiency for every batch. Doesn't matter if it's a primarily barley based batch or primarily wheat.
