Default How's my crush?

2nd AG and first crush with new corona. Gunna brew in 5 days. Just wondering if this looks about right. About 5 fullish grains in there that you cant really see. That an issue?

Also, why are you milling your grain 5 days in advance?

There is a few whole grains per handful. But the rest is pretty crushed. Is a few whole ones worth sending it through again? I don't wanna overdo it.

Screw it I tightened up the gap and recrushed, to the point of fearing it (read that somewhere).

It looks good to me. I crush the night before, but I've crushed and waited a week or 3 and it was fine.
