Barley Crusher Revolutions per Pound
« on: October 11, 2017, 08:28:15 PM »
I usually crush my grains by hand, and I sometimes count revolutions to pass the time.

On my last brew day, it took 541 revolutions to crush 10.59 lbs. of grain.  So that's roughly 51 revolutions per pound.
It's too close to home
And it's too near the bone

You know next time you are milling by hand you won't be able to stop yourself.

Dewalt made drills so I won't have to...

But, good to know, I guess, if I ever plan to mill by hand.  I would assume the number is variable based on mill gap and a million other variables (grain type, moisture content, etc. etc etc).

Mine runs about 60 cranks/lb, maybe because I'm crushing finer? I have it down to .030".
