Can I use my Nutrimill to mill sprouted wheat?

Does anyone know if I will gum up my mill if I use it to mill sprouted grain and yes I know it has to be dried first LOL, but just wanted to make sure before I mess anything up.

I am no expert here but I would think that if the grain is thoroughly dried it shouldn't present any problem.  Just to be safe you might want to give the company a call first and check with them.

 

Good Luck,

Janet

I would agree with Janet with a strong emphasis on "thoroughly" dried,  as in drier than dry.

Their customer service is excellent. Asking the forum, most of whom do not own one makes little sense.

How do you like your Nutrimill? I am researching mills and this is one of two I'm interested in. Now I need to find a supplier of sprouted spelt that won't cost me an arm and a leg in shipping costs.

I love love my nutrimill. Every part of the wheat grain is finely milled, it has lifetime repair guarantee, minimal dust. Been using it now for 12 years with a few trips back to the factory for tweaking.  It always comes back good as new.

If you use it for oat groats, beware of it clogging the mill.  I clean out the chamber really well before running the next batch.

Can you sprout your own spelt?

I am new to the world of spelt, buckwheat, sprouting and mills. My naturpath told me that I should really consider switching to them instead of flour. They are apparently low glycemic and super healthy. I guess I'm just going to learn as I go. :)
