you can try an urschel mill.  note almost all mills generate heat when grinding.  grind slowly to generate less heat.  or add dry ice.

I only did this once, but actually had very good luck using a robocoupe with a shredding disc, the sort normally used for making things like shredded vegetables.

The shreds break up into a relatively fine (if irregular) powder.  

I was planning to use this as seed for tempering, but then found out that I could use mycryo, so I did not develop the process past one attempt.
