I clicked on one of the four pictures that run across the top of someones crushed grain. I noticed that his grains were way more crushed than what I get from the online sites.

I was wondering if some of you could post any pictures you might have of what you think a good crush looks like.

I may have to buy a grain crusher.

Pump or grain mill or fementation chiller?

If your fermentation temps are a little on the high side I would honestly go for the fermentation chiller. You will see a much bigger improvement in your beer if you keep fermentation at a better temp.

You may be able to add a note to your online orders asking them to mill the grain twice, they may say no but it costs nothing to ask.

Edit: To answer your question; I don't have any pictures. But I recall a number of 'does my crush look right' threads so if you search you should find lots of examples.

I know there are some more, but this might help.
