Topic: OT Using Coffee Grinder for Whole Grains? (5 msgs / 81 lines)
1) From: sci
Anybody here ever used a good burr grinder to grind whole grains to make
flour?
Reason I ask is I want a grain grinder and finding an old one is like a
needle in a haystack compared to old burr grinders. It would see modest use.
I have ground grains in my old cuisinart "burr" grinder and it makes flour
okay, but not all that consistent.

Seems like I recall Ray talking about grinding grain for bread using
his Silver Fire Plug (Mazzer Major). With any luck he will see this
post and respond.

I have mixed feelings about using the Mazzer Major [BUFF] for grinding
grain. With the burrs touching at -12, it produces mighty nice whole grain
flour at -9 or a corrected setting of 3.
Rather than grinding multiple substances in a common grinder, I entered
"grain mill" in *Google* and got 645,000 responses. The grain mill is
actually the machine of choice to grind whole grain. We got a flour grinder
adapter for the Kitchen Aid mixer... The grinding stones are a bad concept
The old picture of a couple of mill stones turned by an animal or water
wheel was probably just staged for a Christmas scene by Norman Rockwell. Can
you imagine how much gritty flour was ground just to get the stones lapped
in? Tons! Just so someone can complete his Christmas Card list.
A purpose built grain mill is the choice for whole grain flour. If you
choose one with stones, I beg of you, make another choice. You and all your
dentists will thank me. I doubt that you really want a worn out POS from
eBay or Pen Pal.
A blender works fine for steel cut oats or whole grain
