Oh OK. We’ve done ours (so far) @ 0.9mm... wonder what influence the size of the grist has?!?! Any theories anyone?

If you use a bag to strain there is no problems with grinding finer.

I'm only using a couple of litres of backset to adjust ph, i dont think i use enough to have any effect on flavour.
I grind as fine as my mill can, all my wash gets filtered through a biab bag.
