10 Easy Pieces: Grain Mills

November 20, 2019

If you’re going to homestead, it takes more than making your own almond milk. Enter the grain mill: a compact, modern version of the traditional grinding stone of yore for freshly-ground flours and cereal grains. It’s the sort of appliance you might find in a muesli-loving household in Germany, in the kitchen of a professional bread baker, or in a beer brewer’s home laboratory. With our researched selection, the list of potential fresh flours is endless: oat, barley, rye, spelt, kamut, rice, buckwheat, and even chickpeas or other dried beans.
