Hey all...first crush on our new monster mill 2. Gap set to .045 with feeler gauges. It's mostly white wheat malt with a little vienna.

Thanks!

If the pics aren't good enough to analyze let me know and I'll take more.

I see a few husks in there that are a *little* more intact than they should be, try taking it down to .40.

I would take it down to .40 and look into conditioning your grain with water before milling. It makes a huge difference for me, I can mill super fine and the husks don't get shredded so I never have laudering issues.

Keep tightening until there are very few if any whole grains in the mix.

I'm still trying to find the sweet spot with my MM 2 2.0. I've been doing .035 for the last couple of batches, but it might be a little too fine - got a little stuck right at the end of my mash out last batch. .037 might be the ticket...
