I I got a sack of 2 row hoping I could mill it with my corona mill. I can't get a consistent crush, so it's either too small with just right or just right with whole pieces.

I want to crush it all fine and just add in a pound or so of rice hulls. Anyone experience this?

You should try malt conditioning, where you can get intact husks and perfectly crushed grain.
