As I make my first venture into all grain, how's my corona mill crush looking?

Tighter my friend. Should be no whole grains and you have tons of whole grains.

Mind you with a corona mill the first bit you grind will have whole grains until the auger gets the grain pushed up into the plates and the last bit will have a few whole grains for the same reason. I start crushing the grain and after I have a cup or so ground put a piece of typing paper under it to catch the middle of the grind and judge form that bit.

Thanks. I started finer but then I thought it was too floury. I will tighten it back up

You need flour and cracked grain with husk, when you got uncracked grain isnt enough tight

Go to the auto parts store and get a gap feeler tool:)

Set the mill to .035-.039 ( somewhat close to a credit card) and set the gap at each end of the rollers
