Withers created the topic: Grain Mill Gap Size

i have recently bought a two roller grain mill (ebay special) with this in mind i was keen on knowing what everybody had their gap set at as i have read a lot of conflicting reviews (Credit cards, Guitar pick).

i am using the new Robobrew with built in pump and my last brew house efficiency was 55% ish as opposed to when i had grains milled at the brew shop where i had 82% ish.

G'day Wayne, it is hard to give a definitive answer most will say about a credit card thickness, Im a baas player my picks would probably be ok too, the real answer it to look at your grain closely. I had mine set and it worked great for my pale/ale malts and crystal malts, but then when I added wheat and rye to some of my brews I lost eff and had to make the gap smaller. Running it all through mixed can be a bit of a stab in the dark so inspect what grains you are going to use, choose what looks like the smallest and adjust the mill so it cracks all the grain, then check it with some base malt just to make sure you havent gone too small and will pulverise everything. If you are a little worried grab some rice hulls and throw a handful or two into the milled grain while mashing in, just in case you've gone a little fine.

So basically grab some grain and have a muck around until you find its right for you and the grain you are using, you'll find once set you'll unlikely have to adjust again unless you get some thing very small.

Cheers mate!

Bottled my Scottish ale and all went very well, washed 2 jars of yeast and that looks good too. Brew day tomorrow just preparing the liquor now. Was a bit worried about doing the yeast thing again but decided to get back on the pony and move forward. :D
