I BIAB and I crushed this with my new corona mill. It looks ok to me but I figured I should ask the experts.

Looks perfectly fine. Nice crush. Not so powdery that it'll dough up on you and plenty of hulls.

Since you said you are doing this BIAB I think you can go finer yet. If you rotate the crank without grain in the mill, do the plates grind against each other? Mine do. Sounds awful but I typically get 80% efficiency no sparge.

Yeah it sounds bad. But I backed of off from sounding like the lawnmower did when I was a kid right before the engine blew from a lack of oil

I will tighten it a little more and go with it.

Thanks everyone.
