Milling Wheat

Updated: Jan 17, 2021

Milling your own wheat is as easy as 1, 2, 3...

Grinding your own whole wheat flour is very easy if you purchase a good wheat grinder. We have been extremely happy with our Nutrimill Wheat Grinder. We have had it for twelve years now and never had any problems with it.

Open the top lid and pour as many cups of whole wheat as you will need for your recipe. We have found that two cups of whole wheat makes about three cups of flour.

Make sure your bowl lines up with the marks on the mill and place the knob at finer (for cream of wheat cereal turn the knob to coarser.) This turns the mill on and it does all the work.

When it is finished grinding, take out the bowl, open the lid, and put the flour back into the wheat grinder for a second milling.

Process a second time on the finer setting. This will give you a very light wheat flour.

Any extra flour should be stored in a freezer bag labeled with the date it was milled. Whole wheat loses its nutrients after it has been milled, and the best way to ensure you are getting all the nutrients from the wheat is to freeze it.
