I had an email asking how fine the Country Living Mill could grind corn on two passes, and thought you'd be interested in the results also. I installed my corn/bean auger and ground some corn. I set it as fine as I could comfortably turn it and ran the corn through one time. At this setting, my 8 year old could turn it, but just barely. The picture shows Redmond Realsalt (table salt consistency) on the top and the ground corn on the bottom. The corn is actually finer than the salt, but you could adjust the knob to a little grittier consistency if you don’t want it quite that fine. It is a little harder turning than grinding wheat and doesn’t crank out as much flour with each turn, but I was able to grind it fine. No need to run it through the mill a second time.
