Baratza forte fine tuning
Today i picked up a Fortè (as per recommendation here, thanks Steve82!).
I've changed the burrs to steel for filter coffee as per Baratza's youtube video instructions.
They recommend fine tuning until the burrs just touch at setting 2-Q, which I've done.(9.26)
This though makes me feel like i now can't grind at settings below this as the burrs will touch too much. Am i missing something here??? I dont want to test it in case i damage the burrs
Any help would be great thanks!
If you calibrated at 2Q, you will not be anywhere near there for any filter brewing.

So you're saying i should calibrate the way they show, but back to 1A instead? That certainly makes more sense. 2Q is a strange top point.

Unless you plan on trying to make espresso with the filter burrs and dulling them in the process, just leave it calibrated at 2Q (burrs just touching) and brew some coffee.
Having the fine calibration at 2Q i think limits my range, from 2Q to 10Z. If i change that contact point to 1A i actually think it means i have more coarser range at that 10Z end
