OK had my first go at conditioning grain. I definitely got less flour produced than normal. Does this crush look about right? Kept the mill at 0.8mm.
I don't wait at all, takes me about 10~15mins to wet about 13kg, then straight into gristing which takes about 10 mins as well. The husk is very porous and gets tough very quickly so if you wait longer, then the moisture will travel further into the grain and produce a more chunky effect. Obviously there will be some tweaking to get the roller gap right for your setup and style.How long do you normally wait? I did 2% water, took about 15min to spray and mix through, then left for 10-15 before milling.
Unfortunately is was more than just a little bit. Got 60% mash efficiency. Last one (unconditioned, same mill setting) was 85%
