Re: Three Grain Pilot Bread.Wheat,flax,quinoa.

i like your mill! Only had the flour mill for about two months. It is a dream machine.Probably a bit expensive. Simple to operate and almost indestructible. Realizing that commercial whole wheat flour was anything but, I decided to make my own flour. It handles all the so called less oily grains an...

Re: Three Grain Pilot Bread.Wheat,flax,quinoa.

Usually I brush it off and eat it anyway. Some I have kept for over a month but as insurance. I find keeping it in t...
