FWIW, this is the exact opposite of what I've heard JZ preach many times, that BP malt (or roasted barley), you really OVER-crush it (i.e. coffer grinder) to get the most color out.
I heard that statement as well from JZ. Grind it to a powder and sprinkle it over your grains at the end of the mash to get max color extraction w/o so much roast. Seems like Tasty recommended the same at another point.

And I dunno about disciple, but HBT + BN has really upped my brewing game!

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

So you don't crush flaked stuff, right?

Yup- nothing flaked gets crushed, and rice hulls, if you're using them, should be added after crushing.
