Aug 10, 2011  Before you do that though, you should really measure the gap between the rollers. I did this using a feeler gauge from the auto parts store. The Barley Crusher instructions say that the gap is pre-set at .039″, but after measuring it I found that it was actually at .035″. A smaller gap will give you a finer crush which usually boosts ...

Jun 30, 2019  I have a Barley Crusher mill and I like it just fine. I bought it because I was getting an inconsistent coarse crush from my LHBS.
