Fineness of Flour

February 28, 2009 - 10:08am -- piashaw



I am looking at purchasing a grain mill and I spoke to a company who makes mills with Natural Granite stones.


They advised me that IF I wanted they could make the stones such, that i could mill an even finer flour than normal. Obviously it would take longer.


What are the advantages of using extra fiine flour for breadmaking as well as any other uses, eg cakes etc.


Hope this makes sense.


Many thanks
