3) what's the difference between the two rollers versus three rollers setup?

4) how do you know which setting the rollers should be set to? Does it vary depending on the grains?

Thanks for your input!
I cannot recommend the adjustable JSP malt mill enough (http://www.williamsbrewing.com/REGUL...TER-P3250.aspx). I would recommend tweaking it out, extra large hopper, etc. I always thought I'd get around to it but I never did it would have been easier to order upfront.

Total cost 155 (adjustable mill - both ends) + 29 (hopper) + 25 (delivery)
