Chris, what grinder are you using now that produces less fines?  Anybody 
else?  Seems like this topic always gets dominated by the "Dark Side" 
espresso guys.  I'm interested in a good, no, make that excellent grinder 
for brewing.

 I changed my brewing to the shortest cycle I know of,  the Aeropress, to 
compensate for the overextraction of fines in other, longer cycle brew 
methods, but I'd like to get a better grinder FOR BREW, and try other 
methods again.
